Hi everyone...I am new to blogging so please exuse me if I am out of context. I am curious if any other social studies teachers have a problem with getting students to turn in homework on a consistant basis. This is not a glaring problem for me but I still take a missing assignment personally. I recieve consitsantly 85% of the assignments given out, and the majority come in late. I guess I am just curious if this is a problem for anyone else. I give homework about once a week. I''ve shortened assignemts and even made a lot of them collaborative, but still the percentage stays at about 85%. Any suggestions as to ensure all students turn in their social studies homework?
