What if we could change the name of homework, to "homeworth"? What value do your current homework assignments hold to you? To the students? To the parents? Is the playing field leveled, but assignments differentiated, for your students?
Believe it or not, all subjects have been lying right there in the word-"homework" all along, but the application process may not have been that of a high level of engagement, but more importantly of meaning to everyone.
With this simple task board, students control their homework. If the learning is meaningful in the classroom, the "worth" of the homework will ensure that the learning is applied at home.
