I could see the usefulness for beginners who don't really know what's up. Maybe having kids do the checkoff of 15 (or however many) minutes would be helpful. My kid is in 1st grade, and both this year and last we had a checkoff of 15 minutes of reading 4 days a week. I see that as similar. Kids will still lie about it (I'm sure some 1st grade parents lie about how much they're reading at home), but maybe it helps establish the habit. |
For my HS kids, I don't like practice charts. As others have said, kids will just lie and parents will sign it. I also don't think you can one-size-fits-all say "practice x minutes" for high school. No other teacher says "work on your homework for x minutes every day." They say "here is the assignment, get it done." I do frequent playing tests in class, and recording assignments. I definitely find that many of my students play their recording assignment over and over again until they get it right...sounds a lot like practice to me.
