The Homework Phonecall You Need to Make

Hi there, is that Mrs Roberts? Oh hi, it’s Mr Boxer here how are you? Great, yeah I’m fine thanks. I just wanted to quickly talk to you about Danny’s homework, is he there? Yeah, I’d love it if you could get him and put us on loudspeaker….Hi Danny, you ok? Great. So Mrs Roberts, Danny’s homework is done online and he revises for quizzes and then completes the quiz and I see what he’s written. Danny — a question for you: what is the word equation for photosynthesis?…Danny?…Did you hear the question ok? Do you need me to repeat it…ok, what’s the answer?…Do you know the answer, Danny?

So this is all a bit strange now Danny, because you gave an absolutely perfect answer when you did the quiz at home, but now you can’t tell me the answer at all…Listen carefully — I’m not going to accuse you of cheating or anything because I know you’re a good lad who cares a lot about his studies and wants to do really well — is that right Danny? — yeah, thought so. So I’m not going to accuse you of cheating or using your notes or Google or whatever, I’m just going to say that the point of the homework is for you to learn the answers, ok? So if you haven’t learnt the answers, then you haven’t really done the homework. Do you understand what I’m saying? Say it back to me please, what’s the point in doing the homework?…

Cool, so next week when I call your mum again and ask you a question from the quiz, are you going to know the answer? Excellent, I look forward to it — I know you can impress me and make me and your mum proud. Mrs Roberts — is all that ok with you? Excellent, thanks. I really appreciate your support. I’ll call you again next week…
