1 | Hello all! | ||||||||||

2 | My name is Shelby and I'm the math teacher here at Schoolcraft. The math homework for this year will be somewhat different than it's been in past years, so whether you're on your last child through the curriculum, you're an 8th grader, or you're new to the community, this will be important for you to read. | ||||||||||

3 | |||||||||||

4 | |||||||||||

5 | For homework this year, my expectation is that students spend up to 20 minutes on their homework each night. | ||||||||||

6 | As some of you may know, I spent quite a lot of time in professional development in the last 6 months, and research firmly shows that students don't respond with improved knowledge when completing copious amounts of homework. In fact, studies show this even more strongly for mathematics. From Stanford researchers to Time magazine, many teachers are even being encouraged to do without homework in its entirety. However, most research shows that consistent, purposeful, and relevant practice at home builds engagement and can help fuel student discussion the following class day. I'd encourage you to spend time with Google if you'd like to hear more about these concepts, and view the infographic to the side. Here's a link to the infographic, also: https://www.oxfordlearning.com/wp-content/uploads/2016/09/how-homework-affects-students-infographic.jpg | ||||||||||

12 | Students are recommended no more than 10 minutes of homework multiplied by their grade level each night. Last year, many students were spending 1-3 hours on math homework alone, causing significant stress when other subjects in the middle school had homework, or when the community play was on. Math is extremely important, but students should not be overwhelmed to the point where they lose sleep or family time because of homework. | ||||||||||

13 | |||||||||||

14 | |||||||||||

15 | |||||||||||

16 | Therefore, my expectation is that students complete 20 minutes of homework each night. I will often be giving them a choice on what problems (still some ACE problems from the book) to complete, or even sending home a single word problem. If your student is completing these in less than 20 minutes, there will be a challenge packet for each student to work on in down time. Additionally, students will be encouraged to complete homework at the same time each day - following dinner time, as soon as they get off the bus, on the ride to practice, etc. Habits are healthy to have, and practice outside of school is incredibly important for any skill. | ||||||||||

17 | |||||||||||

18 | |||||||||||

19 | |||||||||||

20 | Furthermore, no late work will be accepted, with the exception of a single homework pass per semester and family emergencies. In fact, the bus ride from the Middle School each day is about 20 minutes long, so most students should have no reason to not have this work completed. I will have more information about this new policy at the open house on September 13th, and I can always be reached via email, at shelbys@schoolcraft.org. Please, do not hesitate to ask questions or voice concerns; this will be an adjustment for all of us. Thanks for reading, and here's to a great year! | ||||||||||
