Beattie Elementary Guidelines for Homework
Homework contributes toward building responsibility and study habits, and is an opportunity to reinforce skills and new learning. It is the intention of our staff to assign relevant, challenging and meaningful homework that reinforces what is learned in the classroom. Homework also helps keep parents informed about what is being taught in school. Homework assignments are created based upon the intended purpose of the teacher.
Types of homework assignments include:
· Practice of material covered in class
· Preparation for discussion or activities that will occur in the classroom
· Extension assignments to transfer skills or concepts to new situations
· Creative activities to integrate many different skills toward the production of a specific response or product
