Reforming Homework

26 01 2013


This book gives great detail on all the theories and considerations relating to homework.

It looks at the topic from the perspective of the student, teacher and parent.

It has provoked me to give more variety in the tasks I set.

I recommend this as an informative and challenging read.

Some of the key considerations for a teacher setting homework are

  • allow choice
  • give quick feedback
  • give more than drill and repetitive exercises
  • give activities that are interesting and important
  • choose activities students can do
