53

54
volumeoflogic8/29/114:05 PMUS teachers, can u help? RT@b_holland10 just found out I'm teaching U.S II instead of World like I've been planning all summer. #sschat
55
cybraryman18/29/114:05 PMMy daily HW was to either: read, listen or watch the news (more about it on)My Current Events page: http://t.co/BHkC0Pv #sschat
56
MissTeacha28/29/114:05 PMI'm def excited about this topic tonight . . .HOMEWORK!'#sschat
57
irishteach8/29/114:05 PMI live 10 mins from @ShawnMcCusker so that means I also live near wear Barb wire was made #sschat
58
SLazarOtC8/29/114:05 PMOk. Welcome to everyone new, old, and returning. Let's get started with homework... #sschat
59
stumpteacher8/29/114:05 PMHey #sschat gang...going to try to hang for a bit.
60
MelissaLininja8/29/114:06 PMI assign homework only when it is relevant - more for reinforcement in CP classes, more for intro in honors/AP classes #sschat
61
kconners098/29/114:06 PMHere too! RT @cybraryman1: My daily HW was to either: read, listen or watch the news. My Current Events page: http://t.co/JzpGPAM #sschat
62
historyteach468/29/114:06 PM@SLazarOtC I like to assign homework to prepare (skim/scan something a day early) or review topics. Once a week only for me. #sschat
63
ThalesDream8/29/114:06 PMHomework... I have to think about this one, and would love to hear other thoughts. My views are evolving. :) #sschat
64
jhenze448/29/114:06 PMWe have standards based grading, homework doesn't count <-- kills work ethic.
65
cybraryman18/29/114:06 PMQ1 We were required to give daily HW by our administrators #sschat
66
stumpteacher8/29/114:06 PM@Becky_Ellis_ Yes, still pulling the double. #sschat
67
BrdCmpbll8/29/114:06 PM@ThalesDream agreed #sschat and @andreamystrena saved my career! She started my renaissance and #sschat kept it rolling
68
laurafo8/29/114:06 PM@MelissaLininja You know Fulla! That makes me happy - very rare for someone to recognize her. :D #sschat
69
michelerehder8/29/114:06 PMMichele from Minnesota. Hi everyone. 10-12 social studies. #sschat
70
mhhistory8/29/114:06 PM#sschat Am getting conflicting instruction re homework. Admin wants us to reduce it, but also to flip classroom. is this contradictory?
71
MelissaLininja8/29/114:07 PMone thing i'm adding to this year's HW is a weekly student current events blog- some students featured bloggers, others commenting #sschat
72
SLazarOtC8/29/114:07 PM@historyfriend If reflection is important, why isn't it happening in class? #sschat
73
stumpteacher8/29/114:07 PMI do not assign any HW in any of my classes. #sschat
74
irishteach8/29/114:07 PMQ1 Usually hw in my class is to prepare for group projects. I teach soc & psych so not too much HW on own. #sschat
75
MissTeacha28/29/114:07 PM#sschat i'm like @historyteach46 I assigned homework 1 per week. It is to have students glimpse at the text & reitterate major ideas
76
cybraryman18/29/114:07 PM@rgriffithjr They just wanted it assigned in all subjects #sschat
77
irishteach8/29/114:07 PMQ1 I give hw as review- usually only as test/quiz prep. Also give readings sometimes (add on to curric.) #sschat
78
rgriffithjr8/29/114:07 PM@cybraryman1 Did they also specify the format, or just that it was assigned? #sschat
79
ThalesDream8/29/114:07 PMHomework in my district is required to be a certain percentage and even a certain amount of hours per week. Will get. #sschat
80
historyteach468/29/114:07 PM@jhenze44 We are standards based too, making homework an big issue in my school since we changed just last year #sschat
81
mhhistory8/29/114:07 PM#sschat how can you have kids ready for meaningful discussion if they haven't done some reading at least?
82
jeifling8/29/114:07 PMAs I've gotten more experience teaching, I've probably given less homework than then. #sschat
83
ShawnMcCusker8/29/114:07 PMRT @SLazarOtC: Q1: When, if ever, should homework be assigned? #sschat
84
historyfriend8/29/114:07 PMHW can be valuable way for students to finish, reflect on and refine work they do in class. For projects, student groups assign own. #sschat
85
ShawnMcCusker8/29/114:07 PM@cybraryman1 I agree. following some source of news is an important daily activity. I try to model that in class. #sschat
86
FJM7188/29/114:07 PMAt a HW crossroads right now. Don't know if every night is necessary but multiple times a week to prepare for class #sschat
87
stumpteacher8/29/114:07 PM@jhenze44 How does standards based grading kill work ethic? I see quite the opposite. #sschat
88
UkiahCoachBrown8/29/114:07 PMEngaging homework should be like engaging curriculum. It should be assigned to reinforce what you want students to know. #sschat
89
ThalesDream8/29/114:08 PMFound my district's homework policy. It's required to be 600 minutes per week. Here's the doc http://t.co/jpuJlmN #sschat
90
MelissaLininja8/29/114:08 PM@JamesBrauer I don't find anything wrong with intro-ing material, as long as it is engaging, esp w/ honors/AP #sschat
91
historyteach468/29/114:08 PMHW is sort of frowned upon in my district. Math/Literacy are nightly but Sci/SS are not. #sschat
92
irishteach8/29/114:08 PM@SLazarOtC good question asking @mhhistory I wonder that too. Should reading be done in class? #sschat
93
historyfriend8/29/114:08 PM@SLazarOtC @historyfriend It is, but not everyone thinks best in the 40 minutes I see them. People process differently. #sschat
94
UkiahCoachBrown8/29/114:08 PMDoesn't count towards #APUSH. Nightly readings and daily quizzes. Until students are totally self-motivated, that doesn't stop. #sschat
95
FJM7188/29/114:08 PMI also think HW falls into the quality over quantity argument. Needs to be strong and useful in order to be effective #sschat
96
jhenze448/29/114:08 PM@historyteach46 We are 4th year in. completion rates around 15-20% #sschat
97
stumpteacher8/29/114:08 PMHW often creates a gap between the haves and have nots. Some have resources at home that others don't. Including family support. #sschat
98
ShawnMcCusker8/29/114:08 PMRT @BrdCmpbll: @ThalesDream agreed #sschat and @andreamystrena saved my career! She started my renaissance and #sschat kept it rolling
99
rgriffithjr8/29/114:08 PM@FJM718 So you focus more on a prep aspect rather than a reinforcement component? #sschat
100
kconners098/29/114:08 PMThink it's necessary to work on projects, review, current events but never give worksheets (preaching 2 choir here, I know). #sschat
