    • 1. Group One Leadership Challenge Project: An Investigation into Homework for Year 12 Students.
    • 2. Background <ul><li>“ MF and TG surveyed Yr 12s in December to find out about their initial experiences with the Diploma. </li></ul><ul><li>Initial quantitative findings suggested that there was significant concern about the amount of homework that students were receiving. </li></ul><ul><li>There were also general concerns about time management.” </li></ul>
    • 3. Background… <ul><li>“ There were concerns expressed that some teachers were still thinking “AL” rather than “IB”. </li></ul><ul><li>The same issue had been identified in other ESF schools at about the same time. </li></ul><ul><li>The outcome of TG and MF’s initial survey was the stimulus for our project.” </li></ul>
    • 4. Motivation for our project <ul><li>All 4 members of our team teach at least one IB class, so we felt that this issue was common ground across all our subjects </li></ul><ul><li>It was also an area in which we could make some improvements through leadership within our departments. </li></ul>
    • 5. Student Survey
    • 6. Student Survey <ul><li>We began by designing a survey for Year 12 students. </li></ul><ul><li>We were interested to find out about the amount of time spent on homework per day/week </li></ul><ul><li>The balance between subject groups </li></ul><ul><li>The nature of homework tasks and how this compared with GCSE tasks. </li></ul><ul><li>We decided to give the survey ONLY to our own teaching groups </li></ul>
    • 7. Paper survey results -key points <ul><li>The amount of time spent on homework on a daily basis varied from 30 minutes to 5 hours </li></ul><ul><li>As a rough estimate it seems like an average amount of time spent is 3 hours </li></ul><ul><li>Other activities take up time eg: CAS journal writing/ SAT preparation. </li></ul><ul><li>No clear pattern emerging of which subjects were setting the most work </li></ul>
    • 8. Action <ul><li>Our initial thoughts on the quantitative survey results led us to investigate some issues further. </li></ul><ul><li>We designed a set of questions for individual student interviews, which we recorded for qualitative analysis. </li></ul>
    • 9. Survey questions <ul><li>How are you coping with your workload now in comparison with term 1 of Year 12? </li></ul><ul><li>Are you doing more or less extra-curricular activities this year? Why? </li></ul><ul><li>Do you receive a homework assignment from every lesson? </li></ul><ul><li>Are the tasks that you have to do this year different from those for GCSE? </li></ul><ul><li>Have you had coursework this year? If so, did the teacher keep to the coursework planner? </li></ul>
    • 10. Student Survey
    • 11. Student Survey -key points <ul><li>High workload and pressure in the third term due to major assessments </li></ul><ul><li>Coursework Planner </li></ul><ul><li>CAS. </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Focus solely on CAS activities to gain hours - ethos of CAS? </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Sacrifice of usual leisure activities - ethos of CAS? </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Do students need greater preparation for the change in learning style in year 12 until MYP? </li></ul>
    • 12. The Way Forward
    • 13. C urriculum <ul><li>Discussions on homework at departmental level </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Homework is teacher and department specific </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>CW planner is not always used </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Compare SL and HL </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Reduction of term three pressures </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Review of questions in IGCSE and KS3 to prepare students for IB </li></ul></ul>
