    • 8. http://eltchat.com/ #eltchat
      Students would rather get told off or copy
      Homework is seen as a punishment or irrelevant
      Homework is too mechanical making it easy to copy
      Homework is seen as boring / difficult / too easy
      Leftovers = undesirable bits and pieces not finished in class
      Students see English as ‘work’ and don’t want it encroaching on their free time!
      Many times homework assesses nothing but organizational behavior.
    • 9. Students should see the usefulness of homework.
      Tasks should be relevant, interesting and varied.
      Different tasks may be assigned to different ability/learning style groups.
      Homework should be manageable in terms of time
      Homework doesn’t need to focus on a written product.
      Increase learner involvement and motivation by encouraging students to contribute ideas and design their own tasks.
    • 10. 7. Tasks should be challenging but achievable.
      Find out how much time, what facilities they have, and what their preferences are.
      Homework should consolidate classwork, it should not replicate it.
      Home is the outside world and tasks which are nearer to real life use of language are appropriate.
    • 11. I want homework -- or work done beyond the limited time that I've got 'em in my classroom -- to come with a sense of thrill. I want it to accompany a sense that it's really helping one get in the right frame of mind to engage with what we're talking about in class.
