I was at a conference this summer that suggested I DO AWAY with homework passes…instead, replace them with a LATE Homework Pass.
Consider this: What is the message you are sending to students when you tell them that it is occasionally okay if you don’t do the assigned homework? That it’s not meaningful! Makes sense to me, and I can also see where a late homework pass might be appreciated by students when they have a soccer game or a dance recital late into the evening hours… That is how these LATE Homework Passes came to be! Enjoy this freebie.
