There is an ever increasing complaint from high school teachers that the students we are sending from the junior high are not prepared for the rigors of their classes. Given the premise that homework is a necessity when learning to work independently and in developing self-discipline and responsibility, the teachers at MJHS, a suburban middle school, instituted a homework lunch for students who did not complete math and science homework when clue. The purpose was to provide a location for homework completion with teacher assistance. In spite of this intervention, the rates of completion of homework stayed static. Can we create more opportunities for homework to be done on line and will this increase homework completion rates?
