Jenee' Greenwood's insight:

This was an interesting video sharing helpful tips on how to manage the classroom. Although these students are much older than my students, these tips are useful in any classroom. This video not only gave tips, but showed example as to what they were suggesting.

Many in the education field today are looking for evidence to support the case for homework, but are coming up empty handed.

Jenee' Greenwood's insight:

Reading this article, I learned that homework is being banned in many schools. Although I realized this was a growing debate, I would have never thought an entire school would ban homework. I understand how homework could hinder student's, but all homework does not have to be worksheets, or does it? Is banning homework banning the teachers from getting creative and thinking of other means of homework, or is it allowing more creativity? As a future educator, I would like to give my students worksheets for homework as a review not as often, but having an option would be great in my opinion.

Homework or no homework that is the question! This article discusses the pros and cons to both sides of this debate. This article points out a very interesting con about homework. It explains that homework can cause stress and strain on a family and that is one of the many reasons to why schools are banning homework. This was very interesting to me because this was an idea I had not thought of before. In my internship this is something that I have seen take place. For the students in my class that are ELL students homework seems to be a struggle for them. Because I am in a first grade classroom the students are just beginning to learn to read. The students are given homework that has to be read or that they need to understand how to do. If the ELL students do not know how to do their homework it is hard for them to get assistance from their parents at home due to the language barrier. I can see how something like this would cause stress on the family, student, and the teacher. There are always ways around this like sending the homework directions in both spanish and english, but there may also be students whose parents are not sure how to do the homework assignment. The stress caused by the homework confusion could then lead to the child feeling upset or confused about his or her school work. Another statement from the article that I found said, "If kids have no choice in the matter of homework, they're not really exercising judgment, and are instead losing their sense of autonomy." This idea really hit home for me. In my future classroom I think that allowing the students to have choice is so very important. With homework that is just given to students and asked to be completed takes away all choice from the students and this is something I would not want to take place. In the future if I am required to assign homework I plan to make it both meaningful and relevant by connecting it to the real world and making it something the students can do without becoming stressed.

The Great Homework Debate: Is Homework Helpful or Harmful?

Does homework develop study habits and reinforce learning, or does it solidify misunderstandings and detract from other valuable activities, including family time? Gain insight into both sides of the great homework debate.
Jenee' Greenwood's insight:

This is an interesting article. After learning in my methods class, that homework is a growing debate, I wanted to research it for myself. I, however; can not determine if I believe homework is helpful or harmful. This article made great points as if the author believes it to be helpful and harmful. This seems to be depending on the educator if they believe they should give their students homework thinking it is extra practice for them, but really could be hindering them. As an upcoming Elementary Educator, I see many of my students struggling in classwork, but accurately completing the homework. The question remains: Is homework helpful or harmful?

Jenee' Greenwood's insight:

In my methods classes we spoke about the different type of high-needs students within the classroom. This is a great article that gives helpful suggestions for those students. Managing the classroom is most important, to me, because it creates a comfortable learning atmosphere allowing all students the opportunity to engage and learn. I found this article extremely helpful.

This article clearly distinguishes what the author believes to be hinering and contributing to the students by completing homework assignments. It was interesting to read that the French President proposed  no homework for a year, while we are debating if it is an effective option or not.

I found this article beneficial to read because it pretty unbiasedly presented both the pros and cons of homework and kind of let the reader determine whether or not it was beneficial or detrimental on its own. It allowed the reader to make their own decision based on ALL the facts instead of presented one side strongly and condemning the other, making it more of a persuasive article. 

David Mireles's curator insight, May 13, 2014 8:54 AM

I chose this article because  its neutral and gives a couple of reasons why homework is good and bad. this is a neutral article and can help students for next year try to write a essay.

Mrs. Lewis' Learning Library: Cell Pals Student Partners/Grouping | Is Homework Helpful or Harmful and Classroom Management | Scoop.it
Jenee' Greenwood's insight:

Cell Pals is a great interactive way to establish partners. It incorporates 21 century technology in the classroom! Cell phones are not allowed in elementary classrooms, so why not create a cell phone and encourage talking between the student and their speed dail partners. This also limits having the same partner more than once, and creates diverse sets of partners (for example one grade level student partnered with an above grade level student, or both students at the same pace.)
