New year, new goals. This year, my students are going to be working on improving their study skills and discovering what will make them better students. To help them with this, I’ve decided to implement the “no homework binder.”
Each student has a page with their own name on it and a table that lists date, assignment name, and reason that the homework was not done. Every time a student does not have his homework, he will have to find his page in the binder and complete the table. Over time , we will be able to find out if there are patterns in the student’s homework completion. For instance, a student who habitually forgets to turn in his weeklong math worksheet will see this and work on remembering to complete it on Fridays. Love this for personal accountability! It’s also a great tool to pull out at parent teacher conferences.
