An inquiry approach to homework that your students will love!
Passion Homework is an approach to at-home learning that promotes authentic inquiry into students’ personal interests. Implementing passion homework in your classroom is a wonderful way to engage your students in meaningful exploration of topics that they wish to learn more about. Through this process, children will be encouraged to wonder about their world and conduct inquiry whereby they will be actively practicing essential skills in research, communication and critical thinking.
Passion Homework could be implemented over a term, or even the whole year! The key focus with Passion Homework is not the final product, but rather the process that students take to conduct inquiry into their interests and reflect on new learning. This process is fundamental to promoting a love of lifelong learning with our students!
