The EIS Homework Policy
Being an essential part of the educational curriculum, homework is always assigned to the students to complement the work done in the class and to extend the knowledge and understanding of a particular topic. Home work is given on daily basis.
By EIS policy, homework is assigned to provide the student with a means of better understanding the material and improving overall grades. For this reason, all homework will be graded and will count as a percentage of the grade for each term.
Practice assignments reinforce newly acquired skills. For example, students who have just learned a new method of solving a mathematical problem should be given sample problems to complete on their own. Preparation assignments help students get ready for activities that will occur in the classroom.
Students may, for example, be required to do background research on a topic to be discussed later in class. Extension assignments are frequently long-term continuing projects that parallel classwork. Students must apply previous learning to complete these assignments, which include science fair projects and term papers.
Students are given Holiday Assignment during the holiday.
