At IWS, we empower students to work independently, apply skills to new situations, and extend their learning by assigning homework regularly. Thanks to our online portal, students can revisit recorded lessons later.
By assigning regular learning tasks to IWS students, we aim to advance their progress by months. Independent projects boost students’ motivation and commitment to a subject.
The learning potential of students is significantly improved with home learning. This approach proves to be rewarding for learners passionate about polishing their research and critical thinking skills.
The amount of homework completed by students seems to be more positively associated with student achievement than the amount of class work that is assigned. Some research has shown that students who spend more time on homework score higher on measures of achievement and attitude. Thus asserting further research which implies that students who spend two to three hours doing homework every evening are nine times more likely to achieve A-C grades for three international A-levels subjects.
Below are the top benefits of learning outside of a timetabled lesson.
It allows for better knowledge retention.
It improves students’ understanding of the concepts taught in class.
It helps learners apply their knowledge outside the class.
It improves students attitude towards learning and help them cultivate a love for learning
It encourages students to go from a set mindset to a growth mindset
It gives students the opportunity to be in charge of their own learning
At IWS, we assign practice tasks to students to prepare them for upcoming lessons. These tasks allow them to use their knowledge and expand on it in new lessons.
Homework serves as a challenge for learners, motivating them to pay attention during classes and give their best to showcase progress.
Our teachers check if all students have completed assigned tasks and mark them to identify any recurring mistakes. Students who do not submit their work are expected to complete it later with a break time detention.
Our British online school encourages students to seek homework support from teachers if need be. They may also reach out to request a deadline extension on a task before the due date, given that they have a valid reason for it. Our teachers are super cooperative and understanding in such cases.
