How can I use Classworks for Homework/Extended Learning?

Classworks helps extend learning beyond the classroom and school day by allowing students to access Classworks assignments from home. 

Ways to Use Classworks at Home

Classworks can be used to create homework assignments for the following: 

  • Extra practice before the high-stakes Test 

  • Extra practice on specific skill deficits 

  • To reinforce skills being taught in the classroom 

  • For hospital or homebound students 

  • Maintain student knowledge during the summer months 

  • To challenge advanced students

Tips & Tricks

  • Set clear expectations with the students on what they should / should not be working on within Classworks when outside of school. 

  • One way to make it clear to the student is to create a separate class for just homework assignments and include the words “At Home” or “Homework” in the assignment name. 

  • Make the assignments a manageable length (i.e. 3-4 activities per night). Select just the work you expect the students to complete either that night or during the week. Utilize the Instructional Application filter when creating the assignment.
