homework and practice questions

Homework and Practice

The use of homework has been a “hot potato” issue in schools for many years. Some schools start it at an early age, while others have outlawed it even for high school students. Some schools that used to require homework have given up on it because students simply do not do it. This is particularly true in urban high schools or schools that find their students engaged in sports, jobs, or other activities, and these students are often not getting home until 10:00 pm at night. No wonder their homework does not get finished. Yet in some other schools, where parents are quite active and demand more rigorous standards, schools and teachers feel pressured to provide homework for their children.

Research in our text has stated that the amount of homework should increase as students’ progress through the grades. It was discovered that the involvement of parents should be kept to a minimum; and that the purpose of homework should be clearly defined and articulated to both students and parents. In addition, if homework is assigned, comments should be made to the students on their work.
