Successful Strategies for Guided Math Groups: Homework Continuing the Conversation

Posted on February 6, 2013. Filed under: Uncategorized | Tags: |


Homework is crucial.  Let me step out on a limb here- it should be no more than 2 or 3 problems a night. What????  Breathe…. Yes, I said it – 2 or 3 problems a night.  Deep, rich, thorough problems…that ask students to think, model and explain what they are doing.  A problem that scales Bloom’s heights.  With a problem like that, you only need 2 or 3.  Sometimes, only even 1.

Happy Mathing,

Dr. Nicki

P.S.  Marzano (2001) found it to be one of the key ways to improve student achievement…and feedback counts
