A few weeks ago I attended my very first TeachMeet in Coventry and found the experience truly inspiring. One of the ideas which I really liked was the Take Away Homework. The idea is to create a mock-up of a takeaway food menu where, instead of meals, pupils can chose which tasks they are going to do for their homework. What a fantastic way to not only differentiate and personalise homework, but also to encourage creativity and promote student ownership and independence!
