Unit 1 Lesson 2: Types of Homework Assignments>

Objective: Participants will be able to analyze multiple homework structures that are applicable in elementary school classrooms.


Introduction:

“Homework assignments typically have one or more purposes. The most common purpose is to have students practice material already presented in class. Practice homework is meant to reinforce learning and help the student master specific skills. Preparation homework introduces material that will be presented in future lessons. These assignments aim to help students learn new material better when it is covered in class. Extension homework asks students to apply skills they already have to new situations. Integration homework requires the student to apply many different skills to a single task, such as book reports, science projects or creative writing." (U.S. Department of Education, 2003).
