Is It True a Student Does Not Have to Complete Practice Work?
What is practice work?
Practice is assigned to a student to support their growth in mastering a state standard. A teacher will provide feedback on the practice work to support a student's mastery of the state standard. Based on the feedback, teachers will provide enrichment opportunities to enhance their learning. Practice work is IMPORTANT and needs to be completed by the student. This work is preparing them for the final assessment of the state standards. If students do not practice, their rate of success on a standard will diminish. An easy way to think of practice work is to compare it to training for a sport. Athletes practice and refine their skills so they may perform at their highest level. They show up for practice even if no one is keeping score, because the goal is to win big during the game. This is the same for student learning. Students are expected to practice their skills to prepare them for the final assessment of the state standard.Though the practice work is not assigned a score, the feedback provided is critical to help them meet the standards. Remember, we are working to master learning and not a percentage!
