Homework is a necessary part of school life at Foothills Academy, but it must be purposeful, effective, and manageable, whilst promoting learning, retention, practice, or growth. Homework should be a routine part of each student's day, although it should be personalized to fit the student's needs. Homework should not be a redundant exercise, and it should not be too easy or too difficult. Homework is not self-directed learning at home unless it is purposefully designed to be so by a teacher using a 'flipped classroom' approach.
Homework can show knowledge and understanding through a variety of option; writing, presentations, movies, art, music... (by providing such choice, research showed that assignments were generally longer, more in-depth, and more creative than traditional homework).
