What Homework Should I Be Completing?
The College policy relating to homework states: “The first purpose of homework, particularly in junior secondary years, is to assist you in developing effective independent work habits. It is also necessary for you to consolidate your learning and to complete your work to the best standard of which you are capable.” More information can be found in the College Homework Policy.
Homework can take many forms including exercises set by the teacher, completing unfinished work, completing projects and assignments, studying for tests, quiet reading and reading back over difficult work.
