    • 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.
  • 7. 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.
  • 8. Homework: Generalizations
    • While practicing, students should adapt and shape what they have learned.

    • Step by step. 
    • Small chunks.

  • 17. Recommendations
