  1. 1. Homework and Practice Big Ideas
  2. 2. Introduction <ul><li>Marzano on Homework and Practice </li></ul>
  3. 3. Homework: Generalizations <ul><li>The amount of homework assigned to students should be different from elementary to high school. </li></ul><ul><li>  </li></ul><ul><li>  </li></ul><ul><li>Rule of thumb:  10min per Grade Level </li></ul><ul><li>Considerations:  Coordinating with other teachers </li></ul>
  4. 4. Homework: Generalizations <ul><li>Parental involvement in doing homework should be kept to a minimum.  </li></ul><ul><li>  </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Parents do have a role, but they shouldn't feel that they should teach.  Providing resources with how to help your child is important.  </li></ul></ul>
  5. 5. Homework: Generalizations <ul><li>The purpose of homework should be identified and articulated. </li></ul>
  6. 6. Homework: Generalizations <ul><li>If homework is assigned, it should be commented upon. </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Can be commented on by teachers or facilitated in student groups.  </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Students should know ahead of time what type of feedback to expect. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Assigning less homework so that all homework can receive feedback is better than homework without feedback. </li></ul></ul>
  7. 7. Homework: Generalizations <ul><li>Mastering a skill or process requires a fair amount of focused practice. </li></ul><ul><li>  </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Take little bites/chunks at a time.  Not only procedural, but conceptual as well. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>It can 24 times of practice, spread out over time before mastery. </li></ul></ul>
  8. 8. Homework: Generalizations <ul><li>While practicing, students should adapt and shape what they have learned. </li></ul><ul><li>  </li></ul><ul><ul><li>This is the conceptual practice piece, as they learn, they adapt. </li></ul></ul>
  9. 9. Procedural Practice <ul><li>Step by step.  </li></ul><ul><li>Small chunks. </li></ul>
  10. 10. Conceptual Practice <ul><ul><li>Compare Contrast </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Categorize </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Analagies </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Metaphors </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Learning Notebooks </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Non-Linguistic </li></ul></ul>
  11. 11. Homework <ul><li>Guided practice in class with teacher observation needs to happen before that practice is assigned as homework. </li></ul>
  12. 12. Mount Vernon Considerations <ul><li>Block Schedule </li></ul><ul><li>ELL Population </li></ul><ul><li>Providing a place and time for homework </li></ul>
  13. 13. Recommendations <ul><li>Establish and communicate a homework policy.  </li></ul><ul><li>  </li></ul><ul><ul><li>This should be school or district wide.   </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>  </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>This should include instruction for parents.  </li></ul></ul>
  14. 14. Recommendations <ul><li>Design homework assignments that clearly articulate purpose and outcome. </li></ul>
  15. 15. Recommendations <ul><li>Vary approaches to providing feedback.  </li></ul><ul><li>  </li></ul><ul><li>Student, pair, and teacher feed back. </li></ul>
  16. 16. Recommendations <ul><li>Ask students to chart their speed and accuracy. </li></ul>
  17. 17. Recommendations <ul><li>Design practice assignments that focus on specific elements of a complex skill or process. </li></ul>
  18. 18. Recommendations <ul><li>Plan time for students to increase their conceptual understanding of skills or processes. </li></ul>
  19. 19. Tech Integration <ul><ul><li>Tools for collaboration, revision, refining.  Google Docs </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Practice skills for speed and accuracy. Hot Potatoes </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Track skills using spread sheets, etc.  </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Posting homework and practice online,  create study groups.  Edmodo, Moodle. </li></ul></ul>
  20. 20. Mount Vernon Considerations <ul><ul><li>Access to resources </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Block schedule </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>A place for homework to happen </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>ELL </li></ul></ul>
