The linking of curricular and extra-curricular activities is a requirement of German all-day schools. Homework activities can be seen as a prototype of this interlinking, because they explicitly relate to curricular classes and, at the same time, they are explicitly framed as an extra-curricular activity. Based on interviews with pupils and pedagogic practitioners, this paper presents three case studies of homework support and explores how the relationship between curricular classes and extra-curricular activities is arranged. Furthermore, the way in which this relationship becomes apparent in specific pedagogical support practices is analyses in the three cases. The results of the analyses are three basic modes (types) of support practices in homework activities. The modes correspond with three fundamentally different relationships between curricular classes and extra-curricular activities.
