Can you imagine walking into a new school year knowing all your homework assignments for the year are readily available and accessible to your students?
How often have you had to scramble to make sure you had plenty of extra copies of homework assignments for students who were absent from class?
What if you knew which students completed and mastered the material you taught before they even entered the classroom?
The concept of having all your homework assignments live online is one that can help you stay organized, on task, and prepared for any changes needed in lesson planning to ensure students are reaching their potential.
Some web based programs allow for easy assigning and instant grading of assessments you build for your classes. These assignments live online and are completed outside of classroom time. Students can access the assignments from computers in school or at home, as well as from phones and tablets.
Students will never have the excuse of not writing down their assignment or the proverbial “my dog ate it” scenarios are no longer in play. Student access to the online homework assignments allows for total accountability on their part.
The last thing teachers do at night, or first thing in the morning, is look online to see how many students have completed their assignment by the due time, and in the case of Castle Learning, see their immediate scores and determine what was understood and retained from that day’s lesson.
We never want homework to be “busy work”, we want it to supplement the lesson to help students reach standards and assess whether our methods in the classroom have been successful. Take advantage of the tools available to you to have your homework assignments live online and you will find yourself succeeding.
