Help students reflect on how they went with their homework
>
What are they:

Homework check-ins are questions designed to provide a layer of support and garner a level of insight into students’ experiences with their homework.

They help create a more constant flow of light touch points between teachers and students, and allow teachers to observe issues with the set homework before the next class, streamlining subsequent lesson plans.

Benefits:
  • Understand student progress before following lesson
  • Understand how students are coping with homework workload
  • Voice issues with comprehension when they occur
  • Feel supported all week
