No, I'm not talking about with a day's work. I assigned a fairly major project and gave the kids a due date a little over a week from the day I assigned it. I have a ton of Title I kids who go home and baby-sit or work a full-time job to help pay for groceries. I know they don't all have time to go home and work on something that involved, and a lot don't have computers to do the research they needed to do, so I built in several class periods of work days so they all have plenty of time to finish it. So what do I do with the ones who went home that night and worked on it for hours and now they have nothing to do in class? I can't move up the deadline b/c those kids who can't work at home need those work days. But I don't want the ones who've finished to be talking and blowing off that class time this week. It seems unfair to add an extra assignment just b/c they finished early. Any thoughts? Opinions?
