Homework policies and guidelines are the topics outlined in this article. Homework policies should address the amount of homework and amount of school time available to do the homework. Guidelines for grading homework are also discussed. It is recommended that teachers should prepare a written description of homework practices for the principal. Examples of preparation, practice, extension, and creative homework are described by K-12 teachers. Their suggestions are directed at helping administrators to help teachers not only vary homework assignments, but also focus on each type of assignment. Four references are included. (SI)
