Routines and Transitions alternatives to traditional homework Even at the college level, these homework alternatives make a lot of sense in a language classroom. I am beginning to really re-think all my ideas about homework.
KETCHUP folder: When students are absent, place a "ketchup folder" on their desk and slide their missed assignments inside the folder throughout the day. Fun and creative way of getting missed work to students who were absent
Homework club- If they turn all their homework in on time, then they get to stay in the club! If they don't then they are out of the club. Students who turn all their homework in for the entire month get to come to the monthly homework club lunch.
Whole class homework incentive - Pin the letters face down onto a board. When the whole class brings in their completed homework, turn a letter around. Once the word homework can be fully seen as a class vote on a reward.
