Homework is not the most appealing aspect of school, but it helps you to progress, teaches independent study skills and has to be done. This is a new Humanities idea to make homework a more creative and enjoyable experience. You get to decide what you do and when you do it.
Over the next term and a half, you must complete 3 of tasks for geography homework from the options grid. It’s your choice - try to think about which tasks you will enjoy doing, what you are good at and what resources you have access to. If you need the Internet but don’t have it at home you can use the computers in H7 at lunchtime or after school. Your teacher will get you to write the 3 hand in dates in your planner when you are given this sheet.
Make sure you use at least two sources of information when researching your chosen task.
You have to show independence, deciding how to undertake the necessary research and complete each task. However, you can ask your teacher for guidance if you get stuck. You can discuss tasks with friends (that’s discuss not copy from them) but you must produce your own work to hand in to your teacher.
You can organise your homework in a way that suits you, just meet the deadline. You can do it in 20 minute bursts or two-hour sessions - a good guide would be to spend about 45 minutes each week or at least 5 hours overall on each task, but you can spend more if you really get into it (again, your choice).
Good luck – Hope you enjoy it.
