Some of you have heard me talk about the need for school to be fun while delivering high quality education. Part of going to school seems to mean doing lots and lots of …homework. Some students dread going to school because they didn’t do their homework and fear the consequences or homework doesn’t seem to help them.
Following are a couple of articles for your consideration. The first was written in 2012 and cited studies showing homework actually has negative effects. The second article is from 2015 and again addresses the topic. Give them both a read and then stop back by and share your thoughts on homework. Do you think it does some good or not and if so why yes or no?
