Make homework a powerful and enjoyable process of providing high-quality feedback and learning opportunities for your students. Implement the following strategies today!:
- Create a homework marking, setting, receiving and returning timetable for yourself, and stick to it!
- Create a Learning Journals system – this will build routines and get your students into the habit of reviewing, customizing and summarizing their work on a regular basis
- Try ‘Live-marking’: it’s such a powerful technique and it saves you so much time!
- Use peer-assessment and self-assessment – why mark things yourself if the students can do it (and they’ll learn more from the process)?
- Make use of intangibles, but don’t overuse them
