Description

Give them a piece of work in class and tell them that they must finish it off for homework.

You can do this as you give them the work or later on. Sooner is usually better than later.

Example

Right class. I want you to start work on Exercise 45 on page 23 of your books...And I want you to finish it off for homework. If you complete it in class, show me and if I say it is ok then you'll have no homework for this fine and sunny day.

Discussion

When given work in class some pupils will go as slow as they can. It can be quite motivating to realize that they can save homework time by working harder in class.

Beware that homework avoiders may not be affected much by this method, although you can still point out to them when they trot out the usual excuses that they had the opportunity in class.
