This document contains a list of ideas for setting up a "Tarea Semanal" system "Weekly Homework".
This is set-up with ideas for Spanish class but could be created and edited for other languages. However most of the ideas are cultural references for Spanish.
Choose one day of the week that their weekly homework assignment is due each week. Students must select one homework assignment from the list (it is a word document so you can edit it however you would like to) Then have students use the chart provided (for 1 quarter) where they record what they did, what they learned and have parents and their own initials.
You can change the options for different units that you are currently or keep it general for the quarter.
Students usually have fun with these assignments and explore Spanish outside of class in a non-textbook sense.
I have a google form that students fill out once completed to turn in anything needed or just tell me about what they did that week. This is an easy way to check their work!
