In Years 8, 9 and 10 teaching staff will assist students to develop effective skills to be able to organise their time to do homework. They will set homework for students and show students how to set their own homework.
The latter is an important learning for students as they must become more independent for their SACE studies.
SACE students will be expected to set their own homework so that assignments are completed on time, skills and knowledge are consolidated and tests are studied for.
Teachers must be able to TRUST that students will do homework so that the academic program can be completed and so that each student reaches his or her true potential.
Teachers must be able to TRUST that parents will supervise homework, ensure that their child sets aside the time and that the child has an appropriate place to do homework.
Parents must be able to TRUST that teachers are setting appropriate homework.
Students must be able to TRUST that the homework set is worth the effort.
In years 8 and 9, students will be expected to complete at least one and a half hours of homework each week day, or 7.5 hours over one week.
In Year 10 students are expected to complete at least two hours of homework per day or at least 10 hours per week.
Where appropriate, Area of Study teams will generate lists of activities that will consolidate class learning over the year levels and across the relevant topics. The lists can be used to extend students and support parents in their encouragement and supervision of homework.
In the SACE (years 11 and 12), students are expected to complete 15 - 20 hours homework during one week depending on their course. This is equivalent to about to two to three hours per day.
The Advisory Team teachers will generate and explicitly teach a list of study and organisational skills that will help SACE students to consolidate class learning, complete assignments and study for tests.
At Salisbury East High School, we provide opportunities for students to complete homework immediately after the usual school day ends. From 3.05 to 4.30 p.m. every Monday and Wednesday, students can attend the library for supervised homework sessions. For more information, click here.
Year 11 and 12 students are also able to access the library for private study on Tuesday and Friday afternoons, as well as during their non-contact study lines throughout the week.
