Helpful Hints When It's All in
Homework has three main purposes:
- to finish work not completed in school;
- to provide practice and extension of concepts presented in
- to allow for student preparation in upcoming class
Early in the school year, you should find out what the expected amount
of homework will be in your child’s class from his/her classroom teacher. French
Immersion students should expect to have roughly the same amount of homework as
their counterparts in the English program.
Teachers are sensitive to the content of the homework which is sent
home. Teachers outline the expectations of homework assignments in order for the
students to successfully complete them.
