This summer, I’ve decided to try out a new way of giving homework. I normally make notes in a regular notebook…which they almost never read! So I’m mixing it up with some of the students I have through the Summer, and using a folder for their assignment pages and theory worksheets.
This could be just a fun way to do Summer term assignments, or I might continue into September and role it out to all the students. I’ve tried to make this as fun, and clear as possible.
There isn’t that much space in each bubble, because I want to be more careful and concise in the notes I make. This –combined with the fun graphics – I’m hoping will up the open rate for the folders. It’s better to write a few bullet points that they read, than an essay they never do.
The second page of the pdf is for the student to fill in during the week. It includes:
- Checkboxes for each day of the week they practiced
- Two questions: What went well? What didn’t go so well?
- A stave to draw in the most difficult section they worked on
