Our school has taken a solid stance on ensuring that all teachers provide homework, but that cannot always happen in my class. When I am working with students on reading strategies, I prefer having students demonstrate those strategies in class.
However, when there is novel work to be done or a writing project, your son or daughter will have homework in the form of reading (and hopefully practicing his/her strategies) or study guides/worksheets/comprehension guides/outlines/rough drafts/etc.
There will also be homework assigned from the Elements of Language book. These assignments will be assigned on a class by class basis. Also, these language assignments will be based on individual/class-wide need.
Please check your son or daughter's agenda for any assigned homework.
Thank you all!
