For this term teachers in the Year 7 team have attempted to give the homework given to students more purpose and meaning. This has been via ensuring that the tasks set are directly linked to what is being covered in class and through giving students a ‘voice’ in how they present their homework. Rather than also have students create a multitude of various smaller tasks, a more major, singular project is issued.
Students are accessing their weekly homework via an iTunesU Course that has been created for them.
Recently as part of an Economics task, students were to develop a short video depicting them participating in their ‘Dream Job’. Below are just a few responses that were collected! 🙂
