Alternatives To Homework: A Chart For Teachers

by TeachThought Staff

Part of rethinking learning means rethinking the bits and pieces of the learning process–teaching strategies, writing pieces, etc.

Which is what makes the following chart from Kathleen Cushman’s Fires in the Mind compelling.Rather than simply a list of alternatives to homework, it instead contextualizes the need for work at home (or, “homework”). It does this by taking typical classroom situations–the introduction of new material, demonstrating a procedure, etc.), and offering alternatives to traditional homework assignments.

In fact, most of them are alternatives to homework altogether, including group brainstorming, modeling/think-alouds, or even the iconic pop-quiz. Food for thought, yes?
