Office Hours: Shouldn't There Be Homework? A Discussion Concerning Worksheets and Book Reports

February 16, 2017

Worksheets and book reports. Ah, you remember them well. In fact, they may be the reason your love of reading burned out as a child. Here at CenterForLit, we are sworn enemies of the comprehension question. And yet, you may wonder how else you are to know whether or not your student completed their reading-- not to mention whether or not they understood it! How do we as teachers cultivate a love of reading while also tracking our students' progress? And what is the proper balance between assignments and free reading? This is the topic for our February edition of Office Hours on the 16th at 1:00 Pacific Time/ 4:00 Eastern Time. Your homework? Just be there!
