How do I set homework for my pupils?

Homework is paramount to ensure learners consolidate learning in the classroom. Through observing other teachers and advice I have developed the following strategies when setting homework;

  • Do not set homework for the sake of setting homework
  • Homework should consolidate learning in the classroom
  • Make sure you set a maximum amount of time that is spent on a piece of work
  • Encourage independent learning.
  • Define a homework time table indicating when homework should be set and collected.
  • Record results of homework in a personal planner to refer to at parents evening and to assess progress.
  • Try to vary the task, including setting some online homework to develop ICT skills.
  • Stay on top of marking, make sure homework is marked with constructive and instant feedback.
