Homework in Secondary Classrooms: Making It Relevant and Respectful
Journal of Adolescent & Adult Literacy Volume 55, Number 1, ISSN 1081-3004
In this article, the authors focus on homework as an adjunct for learning in secondary school classrooms. Four types of students are profiled, with detail on how the students respond to homework assignments when they do not understand the content. The authors then review three changes in homework practices that can engage students, including fluency building, spiral review, and extension learning. (Contains 2 figures.)
