Just for students. . . A HOMEWORK SURVEY
We want to monitor our students' homework minutes and ensure that they can have time to participate in extra-curricular activities after an engaging day of learning here at Porter. We have developed a short survey for STUDENTS to complete...telling us the number of minutes they spend doing homework in a single night.
Over time, we will be able to evaluate the number of minutes (by class and by grade level) students spend on homework nightly.
AND….students will have the opportunity to win a FUNKY SOCK PASS!! After a total of 10 homework entries (on different days) a student will earn a pass to wear funky socks on the following Friday. Survey results will be assessed on Friday’s and sock passes will be given out to be used on the next Friday.
If you have any questions regarding this survey, please contact Ms. Engelmeier at email@example.com.
