Keep everyone accountable to your homework expectations, this contract will help you keep your homework policies clear and easily accessible for all to refer to.
No need to reinvent the wheel, I am happy to share my work with you.
It is fully editable, use the half page or full page version to suit your needs. I have included four different versions of the text to help minimize the time you need to spend editing it for yourself.
- How I use in my classroom -
At the beginning of the school year I send the contract home for parents and students to read thought the document and both sign. This ensures that confusion over my homework program is kept to a minimum. It is less likely my students will pull a fast one on their parents!
I also only require homework as practice of vital skills, I rarely require practice sheets or make-up work as the homework debate is quite an issue in my school.
I hope this helps you get a jump on using a contract and helps you revisit your expectations for homework in your classroom!
