Discussions with students about missed assignments yield results

Students who refuse to complete assignments at home may do so for a variety of reasons, members of the Teacher Leaders Network said in a recent discussion. Most said private discussions with students can help educators better understand why the work is not being completed and reiterate to students the importance of the work to their learning and grades. Accommodations should be considered for students with challenging home environments, they said, and homework always should be meaningful. Teacher Magazine
