In an effort to strengthen metacognitive skills among my students I have started asking them to rate and analyze the effort that they have applied to any particular assignment.
I like to use Plan Do Review sheet for my students that rush. This helps them back up and take another look at their effort.
My Homework Plan is for the student who never seems to complete their homework. My students often give excuses that typically involve leaving their homework at school or at home. Sometimes the work makes it home but they never complete it.
This exercise was developed after participating in a Coursera course centered around Teaching Character Strengths in the Classroom. This exercise focuses on increasing self-control (come to class prepared) and grit (finish what you start).
Thanks and Enjoy!
