Homework is as much a part of American schools as desks, classrooms and textbooks. The debate over what homework should and shouldn’t be is as old as the concept itself. This hour-long Webinar is designed for teachers and administrators who want to start thinking about the practice of assigning homework within their schools.
We will look at where we have been and where we are in the practice of assigning homework, looking at it from the points of view of teachers, students and parents. We will address the variety of research on the subject and provide points to ponder as teachers think about homework for their classrooms or as administrators consider homework policies for schools and divisions.
You'll cover these topics and more:
- Homework: A Traditional View?
- Homework as an Extension of the School Day
- How can you tailor your case to your different constituencies?
- Homework at Different Grade Levels
- The Parent Trap
- Points to Consider
- Creating Homework Policies
Total run time is 60 minutes, which includes the presentation and Q&A.
