The Halton District School Board outlines the expectations for homework to be reserved for work that has not been completed in class. Any work completed at home can not be reported on. Many studies have shown that Rote type learning does not provided adequate engagement for a deeper understanding. In my class, homework will be limited uncompleted class work, Math Makes Sense workbook (which will not be taken up in class or graded), a bi-weekly math problem "Problem of the Week" which will be graded and discussed in class, a reading log, and reading. Students are welcome to use their school logins for Code.org and Storybird when at home.
