Welcome to Homework 101
  • Choose a table to set your things
  • Select a homework problem you feel comfortable
    doing
  • Work the problem on the chart paper, showing all
    your work, and sign your name
  • You may do the problem with a partner but both
    must completely understand the solution
  • Be prepared to explain your solution

Goals
  • Identify homework beliefs/issues/etc.
  • Explore the features of a homework process used
    in high school mathematics classes to have all
    students own the learning
  • Discuss other homework ideas and develop next
    steps for a homework process that has all
    students owning the learning

6
Pros Cons of Homework
  • Take 2 minutes to write the Pros Cons of
    Homework on your task sheet.
  • Discuss your Homework Pros Cons with a partner.

7
Homework Pros
  • Students build knowledge through practice
  • It reinforces concepts taught that day and
    supports spiraling concepts
  • Parents expect it
  • It prepares students for assessments/college/etc.

8
Homework Cons
  • Overwhelming paper piles
  • Timing and process of Feedback/Grading
  • Students copy/wait for us to do it/dont do it/
    etc.
  • Teacher doing all the work
  • Wasting valuable instructional time

From Frustration to Hope
  • The homework process was frustrating because of
    all the cons
  • I heard about homework on the board at CAMT
  • I hoped that this process would resolve my
    homework issues!

Michelle email quote on Friday of the first week
of school I teach Geometry and Algebra II at
Robinson High School.  I met you at CAMT this
summer, where you told me how you had students
work homework problems on the board at the
beginning of class.  
12
Jumping Right In The 2nd Day Of School
  • I almost chickened out
  • My rosters showed more students than ever before
  • I was convinced to try something new!

Michelle email quote I have implemented this
idea in my classes and have been completely and
totally amazed this week.  On Thursday, by the
time I had finished taking attendance all the
problems were on the board and they had been done
by the tardy bell.  I heard more math
conversation among students in my classroom this
week than ever before!!
13
Coaching My Students
  • This was new to students too
  • They had to know what was expected
  • Students needed to be taught the process
  • The set-up every day of homework was

14
Keeping Records?
  • I needed a way to keep track of students work on
    the board
  • Blank roster reports work great for me

15
Problem Students
  • This process works well for most students
  • Easily adaptable (number of problems, work with
    partner, help with explanation, etc.)
  • For students who love an audience, now they have
    one!
  • What I did with ones who didnt go to the board

16
Assessments
  • Since I was not picking up homework I gave more
    quizzes with less problems.
  • What worked best for me was
  • I found that students were.
  • If you have a good accountability system with
    groups, it can be set up to have ten small
    quizzes 5 individual and 5 group

17
Teachers, Parents, Administrators
  • Lots of positive comments
  • Other teachers were.
  • Parents Ive talked to have been supportive
  • Administrators love it

18
Student Quotes
  • I like doing homework this way, it helps me
    understand it better.
  • This way, if I didnt get it at home, I have
    another chance.
  • Where did you get..
  • Mrs. Ruddell, where are the problems to put on
    the board?

19
Quote From a PDAS Walk-Through
  • I loved this new homework approach! This is a
    great way to assess students understanding of
    the material. The students were actively
    engaged. What a positive environment.
  • Dr. Jeanie
    Johnson
  • Principal

20
Next Steps
  • My next steps are
  • - incorporate more group work and
    quizzes
  • - refine process of choosing problems for the
    board
  • Questions

21
Next Steps
  • What homework process will you try next year to
    have all students own the learning?
  • At your table, discuss this process or other
    homework ideas
  • Share as a group

22
Next Steps
  • Connect on a Homework PbWorks site to try next
    year and share new ideas http//aisdmathhwproces
