Student not completing homework..
This student is an amazing learner and completes all assignments in class. She actively participates with the class and constantly works well within groups. However, when any homework is given, it never returns completed. Its blank and incomplete. When asked, she always says she forgets, even though I've given several reminders within her agenda and work book. How can I encourage her to do her work outside of the class?

I would set up a conference with her parents to see if they can reinforce efforts and hold her accountable for school work at home as well. You could also work with her and her parents to create a reward system for thoughtful completion of her homework.

If i was a teacher, Ill also set up a parent conference. Therefore the parent is on the same page and aware that the student isn't completing homework.

The parent -teacher conference is definitely a great way to start to rectify the situation. Another idea that I have seen used is to make a homework club display and given an incentive for the students that stay in the club so many times in a row. Kids love games and like to compete so this might help this student remember that they need to complete homework.

I think if she is not completing the homework it may be that she is not being challenged enough. Since it seems like she is a great learner and is always participating I would find ways to challenge her more outside of the classroom. Giving her other homework and having a conference with her parents and her I think would be a great step to get to the bottom of it.

This student might not be encouraged outside of class or are very busy with after school activities. Either way, it is important to talk to them and understand from their point of view what might be the reason.
