Homework - 164

Do you give homework?

If so, do you know why you give homework?

Today's discussion centers around questioning why we give homework. 

I talk about 3 great reasons for giving homework and 5 problematic reasons.

Additionally, I speak to understanding that when homework is assigned you may not know who is actually doing the work (like a friend or a parent) as well as if the kids are simply doing the work to get it done or actually improving their understanding of the content.

I also spend a little time around the choices that kids make when confronted with too much homework.

I hope that you will revisit why you give homework and make sure that you are focused on good, appropriate practices.

Thanks for listening.
