Homework can be a contentious issue in schools, not just for pupils, but for professionals too. The question of how much, and what type, is hotly debated, with some arguing that homework is unlikely to benefit the pupils who need such benefits the most.

Here we present some active learning homeworks, and some which may be used for assessment. The 'flipped classroom' is oft discussed at present; in this view, classroom work of reading, viewing powerpoint slides, working through basic worksheets and so on should be done at home, with classroom time reserved for, reasoning, whole class dialogue, and enquiry based learning instead.

As with other approaches, and ordinary lessons, what is important is that you have a core idea of the learning objectives of any tasks set, and that such tasks are appropriately challenging and engaging for your purposes. The use of technology tools may enhance homework by providing novel multimedia options or online collaborative tools, for example.
