A PUT HOMEWORK HERE labeled bin provides a visual reminder – as well as a defined place – for students to turn in their assignments.
I have a very bright student with Asperger Syndrome included in my general education math class who never turns in his homework. When I talked with his mother about the situation, she insisted he always completes his homework and puts it in his backpack to bring to school the next day. Sure enough, when I checked his bag, there was a bunch of homework assignments, completed but never turned in! He wasn’t able to explain why he never gave me the homework and questioning him just upset him further. The students know to drop their homework on my desk as they enter the class but I always remind them as they come in anyway. What can I do to help him remember to give me his completed work?
