Mark’s approach to homework, something we call ‘Unhomework', is as unique as his own career path. A former secondary head teacher who wanted to go back to the classroom and so retrained as a primary teacher, Mark’s work shows how you can turn the age-old concept of homework on its head and produce a whole-school approach that genuinely serves to help learners develop independence whilst at the same time building on their strengths and addressing their weaknesses.
Feedback from recent events include:
"Thank you very much for the course, I thought it was great. I will be starting to Unhomework my class this week. It fits very nicely into my area of development (culture for/of learning) and as such I will be trying to persuade the school to move in this direction"
"Just to say thank you for the fantastic, stimulating day you gave us on Monday 17th in London. I can't believe its taken me a week to get around to emailing to say thanks and to ask if you would forward me a copy of your presentation as I really loved some of those slides. I feel inspired to try a little harder to get it right and make it fun at the same time. Thanks so much for your time and hard work. I have nearly finished the book and it is a great read"

For many schools, getting parents to the school for an event is something that is only beaten in difficulty by getting the right parents to school for an event. That said, the parents who do come to our Learning and Motivation for Parents Events always head home buzzing with ideas that are not only helpful in dealing with their children but also very relevant for their own careers and personal development.
