Summary

Extension and creative homework are discussed in this paper. Extension homework is assigned in order to transfer an idea or skill to a new or different situation. This form of homework is one way to develop reasoning and critical thinking skills. Examples of this type of homework are book and article reports. Creative homework requires students to compile skills and concepts in new and different ways. Examples of creative homework are surveys and oral reports. Students at any grade level can do surveys involving problem-solving in social situations. A creative homework assignment may be one in which students learn about some local, state, national, or international problem by interviewing their parents, neighbors, or city officials. Another way to encourage creativity is to have students work together in research projects that culminate in oral reports. Creative homework often involves the process of analysis. Forms for book, article, and oral reports, and surveys are provided. (SM)
