Homework Review
O Article: Active From the Start
O “Be careful not to establish a pattern where the child
waits for the teacher to do the work. This is the point
at which the child must learn that he must work at a
difficulty, take some initiative, make some links.
[This] is the general principle that needs to be
established at this time…” (Clay)
