2020-2021 School Year
Students can expect homework on a near daily/nightly basis, including weekends. The BVM handbook (page 3) states that 7th and 8th grade students can expect on average 120 minutes of homework per night.
The purpose of homework is to extend learning done in class; in addition, homework will give students a chance to practice their skills.
Homework will be a blend of paper assessments or electronic/Google Classroom assessments.
In addition, students should write their homework down in their agenda book (every student has one and should use it). Parents, please check your son or daughter’s agenda book to make sure he/she copied down the homework and knows what the assignment/expectation is.
In my room, I write homework on the chalkboard and on the Smart Board. In addition, students should check Google Classroom if any assignment or class material is posted.
