Heather Wehrle's curator insight, December 11, 2013 12:15 PM

The points that this article brings up, as well as the comments from other readers, are truly fascinating.  Do we really need homework for our students to be successful at learning the material?  This article is not written from an abstract theory that has never been implemented in the real world; it is written by a teacher who has had experience assigning homework as well as not assigning homework.  This case study raises many questions about the usefulness of homework all together.  It was also very interesting to see the argument that followed in the comments made by many readers.  Some people are captivated by her idea and want to capitalize on it; others have tried this same strategy in their own classrooms and found success; yet others are still not convinced that eliminating homework is correct or plausible.

 

At first, I agreed with the skeptics.  We have always had homework in our classrooms; if it was useless, why did it persist for so long?  However, I began to realize that many things that have existed in classrooms for centuries have been found recently to be not very effective.  Rote memorization, teacher-centered lectures, and the absence of inter-disciplinary teaching have all been replaced by more appropriate teaching models.  Is homework next?  I hope that in my future classroom, I will be able to limit the amount of homework I send home with my students.  If it does not serve a specific and important purpose, why make my students do it?  I want anything that my students do outside of school to serve an important purpose and advance their learning in meaningful ways.  While I am uncertain if I will be able to eliminate homework all together, I would surely like to try.
