Part 5 - Homework and Practice

Research Based Strategies for the Classroom

Part #5 - Homework and Practice

Homework and practice are related, connected by the context when students are learning on their own and applying new knowledge. Effective teachers approach this kind of learning experience as any other—matching the planned activity to the learning goal. Research on homework indicates that it should be approached not as an afterthought to the school day, but as a focused strategy for increasing understanding. Knowing which of the type of homework is needed helps teachers design appropriate homework assignments. This issue of the Classroom Management Series provides research findings and implementation steps for the findings.
