"The central lesson of this body of research is that homework is not a strategy that works for all children. Because of its possible negative effects of decreasing students' motivation and interest, thereby indirectly impairing performance, homework should be assigned judiciously and moderately. Heavy homework loads should not be used as a main strategy for improving home-school relations or student achievement."
Student Reflection Form "No Homework" Binder. It's my personal/teacher mission to help students become more responsible for their actions. I like that this form makes them accountable for their missing work AND requires them to think about it-something which usually doesn't happen.
Students have to write in a log every time they do not turn in their homework on time and explain themselves. This helps teachers keep track of how many times the same student does not do his/her homework, makes students think about why they did not do their homework, and establishes accountability.
