The motive behind AHW is to develop the habit of reading amongst learners. It is part of self study. It is given in the form of tracing facts/information from the taught part. It is generally given at the starting of each unit while the reading and explaination part continues. Students are expected to go through the taught part at home to complete their A.H.W .This would definitely enhance the conceptual knowledge of taught part as well prepare the scholars for better understanding of the rest of lesson.
School does not favour other type of homework. Only in Maths and sometimes in Languages, scholars are asked to do practice questions.
