Homework in Teaching and Learning.
Papandreou, Andreas
Ideas and guidelines for the organization of effective homework assignments, based on the principle that homework should offer opportunities for learning outside the classroom, are offered. The examples given are for English second language instruction as practiced in public secondary schools in Cyprus, but the principles outlined could be applied to other situations. Suggestions are offered in the following areas: policy regarding assignments; presentation of assignments; evaluation of performance; and treatment of specific language skills. Recommendations include clear and early announcement of teacher expectations and requirements of students; thorough, unambiguous communication of specific assignments; student participation in communication of the assignment in the class; daily evaluation; and complete recordkeeping. Materials, resources, and procedures geared to development of writing, reading, listening, speaking skill and vocabulary and grammar are also specified. (MSE)
