Student will estimate correctly how long it takes to complete homework assignments and will make and follow a written homework schedule at least four nights per week from 45% of the time to 80% of the time by June 2020.
- Select an upcoming task that is not wholly routine, but still familiar to the student
- With the student, create a plan/set of steps that need to be completed in order to accomplish the task
- Have the student estimate how long each step will take
- Have the student work through the steps, noting how much time the step actually took and problems and distractions that may have impacted completion
- Coach the student through strategies to reduce distractions and/or work through problems
- Set goals for amount of time needed to complete each step of future tasks
|Student will improve her time on task from 10 minutes to 30 minutes as measured by the frequency of achieved tasks by December 20, 2019.
|Prior to independent work, teacher will work with student to set a measurable, discrete, and obtainable (but stretch) goal for expected work completion (e.g. number of problems, sentences, etc.) for the requested block of time (10 minutes for first few weeks, increased with success over time). Set timer for 10 minutes increments (for the first 4 weeks at least). Slowly increase the expectations for work. Teacher checks in at each 10 minutes mark to provide praise/redirection as appropriate.
