    • Introduction
      • Marzano on Homework and Practice
    • Homework: Generalizations
      • The amount of homework assigned to students should be different from elementary to high school.
      • Rule of thumb:  10min per Grade Level
      • Considerations:  Coordinating with other teachers
    • Homework: Generalizations
      • Parental involvement in doing homework should be kept to a minimum. 
        • Parents do have a role, but they shouldn't feel that they should teach.  Providing resources with how to help your child is important. 
    • Homework: Generalizations
      • The purpose of homework should be identified and articulated.
    • Homework: Generalizations
      • If homework is assigned, it should be commented upon.
        • Can be commented on by teachers or facilitated in student groups. 
        • Students should know ahead of time what type of feedback to expect.
        • Assigning less homework so that all homework can receive feedback is better than homework without feedback.
    • Homework: Generalizations
      • Mastering a skill or process requires a fair amount of focused practice.
        • Take little bites/chunks at a time.  Not only procedural, but conceptual as well.
        • It can 24 times of practice, spread out over time before mastery.
    • Homework: Generalizations
      • While practicing, students should adapt and shape what they have learned.
        • This is the conceptual practice piece, as they learn, they adapt.
    • Procedural Practice
      • Step by step. 
      • Small chunks.
    • Conceptual Practice
        • Compare Contrast
        • Categorize
        • Analagies
        • Metaphors
        • Learning Notebooks
        • Non-Linguistic
    • Homework
      • Guided practice in class with teacher observation needs to happen before that practice is assigned as homework.
    • Mount Vernon Considerations
      • Block Schedule
      • ELL Population
      • Providing a place and time for homework
    • Recommendations
      • Establish and communicate a homework policy. 
        • This should be school or district wide.  
        • This should include instruction for parents.

    • Recommendations
      • Vary approaches to providing feedback. 
      • Student, pair, and teacher feed back.
    • Recommendations
      • Ask students to chart their speed and accuracy.
    • Recommendations
      • Design practice assignments that focus on specific elements of a complex skill or process.
    • Recommendations
      • Plan time for students to increase their conceptual understanding of skills or processes.
    • Tech Integration
        • Tools for collaboration, revision, refining.  Google Docs
        • Practice skills for speed and accuracy. Hot Potatoes
        • Track skills using spread sheets, etc. 
        • Posting homework and practice online,  create study groups.  Edmodo, Moodle.
    • Mount Vernon Considerations
        • Access to resources
        • Block schedule
        • A place for homework to happen
        • ELL
