Teaching Tip #96

Teacherscribe’s Teaching Tip #96

Is busy work in the classroom really such a bad thing?

Here is a link to an article that explores the topic.

Personally, if it helps drive home a key concept, I’m all for busywork.  

But if it is just to keep kids mindlessly busy so I can get lesson plans for next week ready or papers graded – and that is all that it does- then it’s busywork and I don’t see the merit in it.

But it took me a few years to get to that point.
