A teacher can give their higher-level students more challenging assignments while also filling gaps for those students who may have fallen behind.
Teachers who use homework as an opportunity to differentiate we not only see increased growth in their students, but they will also find they have more time in class to dedicate to whole group instruction.
We have all had time-consuming, monotonous, meaningless homework assigned to us at some point in our life.
These assignments often lead to frustration and boredom and students learn virtually nothing from them.
Homework serves to develop regular study skills and the ability to complete assignments independently.
Anywhere Schools further believes completing homework is the responsibility of the student, and as students mature they are more able to work independently.It should be given only as an opportunity to help increase their content knowledge in an area.Furthermore, teachers can utilize homework as an opportunity to differentiate learning for all students.Homework should rarely be given with a blanket "one size fits all" approach.Homework provides teachers with a significant opportunity to meet each student where they are and truly extend learning.If your child is spending an inordinate amount of time doing homework, you should contact your child’s teachers.At Silverline, we believe homework first and foremost, needs to be purposeful.Homework contributes toward building responsibility, self-discipline, and lifelong learning habits.It is the intention of the Anywhere School staff to assign relevant, challenging, meaningful, and purposeful homework assignments that reinforce classroom learning objectives.We aim to provide opportunities for students to consolidate learning to embed skills or knowledge.Alongside this, our Brain Builder approach aims to combine creativity and purpose, providing students the opportunity to be independent with their learning.
