After School Responsibilities
This document asks students to map out their after school responsibilities to help them plan when and where they can best do their homework.
It focuses on:
- Time you got home.
- Non-homework responsibilities / events.
- Homework: : subject, time started, time finished, when you received the homework, when the homework is due, if the homework is linked to an assessment or not.
- Free time: the start and finish times of your free time.
- Time you went to bed.
I get students to fill this in for a week and then meet them to review what they have found in order to create a sustainable timetable that works for them.
I share this with the students` form tutors and subject teachers to give them an overview of the responsibilities each student has after school.
This document is also shared with parents during parent workshops. I advise parents to go through the findings with their child to work out best ways forward to help with their organisation.
