Teachers - Before You Assign That Homework - What Students wish you knew (about them and the value of homework) | Homework Helpers | Scoop.it

"Should teachers assign homework?" was the question I asked my students today.  I thought I knew the answer, a resounding no I was sure, and yet, once again my 7th graders surprised me.

The Teacher's Guide To The Library Of Congress

The Teacher's Guide To The Library Of Congress | Homework Helpers | Scoop.it

We’ve discussed the benefits of the U.S. Library of Congress many times on Edudemic. Usually we focus on some particular parts of the vast amount of resources or instead offer a more overall picture of what it offers. This time around, we thought you might enjoy an actual guide (written for teachers and education in general) that’s easy and a solid resource to refer back to as needed.
