Approaches to Homework in Secondary School

26 September 2016

Mrs Heather Rinaldi led a presentation exploring answers to parent questions about Secondary School homework

  • Homework Workshop 2016

On Wednesday 21st September, Mrs Heather Rinaldi lead a presentation about Approaches to Homework in the Secondary School where she explored the answers to the following questions:

  • Why do we have homework?
  • How does the homework process work in KS3 and KS4?
  • What are the results of the homework initiatives at DCIS?

(Click here to see the full presentation)

The presentation started by looking at key educational research around the topic of homework, including recent research by the Education Endowment Foundation in the U.K.

Mrs. Rinaldi then went on to explain how the homework process works at DCIS, focusing on the DCIS homework strategies of Tic-Tac-Toe in Key Stage 3 and Knowledge and Skills Organisers in Key Stage 4.

The final part of the presentation had an overview of the results of the homework strategies, including explaining the way that students receive feedback and how students would then feed forward into their next piece of class work, homework or revision activity.

Mrs. Rinaldi then took questions from the floor, where parents were able to ask more specific questions and receive additional advice. If you have any further queries about homework at DCIS, Mrs. Rinaldi can be contacted at Heather.Rinaldi@dovercourt.edu.sg.
