This is not really a Dilemma, but too work related to belong in Personal. Working at home for school, I've found since half term a marked decline in student performance in their home learning, a mix of dropped motivation, quality of work, and parental concern about them just not getting on with it. It's happened really suddenly. Many kids who initially submitted their stuff weekly have dropped off the radar, and plenty of them are mangling completion by missing bits or sending it back without even having written anything, (as if I wont notice.) I know the overall participation in school work has only ever been partial according to a survey posted in an earlier thread on here somewhere, but what I'm noticing is a marked difference from what went before, ie from 1st June compared to previously. Is anybody else seeing this? Do you think it is to do with the usual end of year slackening off with the approach of Summer, or do you think it's all just too tiring to sustain? Or maybe kids are starting to feel lost without teacher input. Above all, should it be strategised by teachers at home, or should it be accepted? I posted on here because I'd like to hear what others are finding. At home is such a weird bubble to work in if you have a general question like this.
