I am at NCTM Innov8 in St. Louis this week, and today I am presenting on homework. Innov8 is a new conference model with a focus on giving teams of teachers ideas based around a specific theme. This year it is: "Engaging the Struggling Learner."
The format of the conference feels fairly different from other conferences I have been to. For example, my presentation is just 30 minutes long, which is a perfect length for me to share out ideas about how teachers can revamp their homework practices and assignments.
As always, I like to share two things when I present: my slides and a document summarizing my talk. If you can't attend my talk, I suggest that you begin with this document which summarizes everything I am presenting about. You can also check out my slideshow:
