I had been running a workshop with some teachers at a local school, so a colleague took my classes for me. She had a lesson to teach and homework to set. I was very sceptical about the homework being done. It's bad enough when I set it, but even worse when the kids think they're never going to see the teacher who set it again.I wanted to make a point, that homework is homework, whoever sets it; that we teachers work together, collaborate, know what's going on, even when we're not there; that lessons are planned and homework's all part of the big picture.
