  • The Homework Debate

  • Updated on Jul 29, 2013

  • The key points of this article are focused around whether or not students should receive home work to complete at home, and how much should be given.

  • In this day and age of digital "everything", how important is it for a child to be given loads of homework on a daily basis. Does the completion of rote homework act as a reinforcer for school? Does homework go against what we are trying to teach our students about the actuality of understanding?

  1. I have different opinions on this topic. But I will say one thing; now that I'm working in the classroom I'm in, homework is not even a thought. And the more I practice it, the more I think about gen ed students and how much homework really does for students. Is it really necessary? I believe that if students can show their performance in the classroom, that's what matters most. And truthfully, when kids bring work home now, how much help are they getting...or not getting?
