Homework: An unnecessary evil? … Surprising findings from new research

Homework: An unnecessary evil? … Surprising findings from new research | Leadership, Innovation, and Creativity | Scoop.it
A new study on the academic effects of homework offers not only some intriguing results but also a lesson on how to read a study -- and a reminder of the importance of doing just that: reading studies (carefully) rather than relying on summaries by journalists or even by the researchers themselves. Alfie Kohn explains.

Ivon Prefontaine's insight:

I found that unless parents could help (not do) with the homework assigning it was counter-productive. Quite often, I would ask students to have a conversation with parents about a social issue or something of that nature.

Son los deberes realmente necesarios?  En esta pieza publicada en el Washington Post la evidencia muestra que no existe relación ninguna entre los resultados (notas) que obtienen los alumnos que hacen trabajos fuera del entorno escolar y los queno, y si existe es bastante modesta.  Lo que nos ahorraríamos en tiempo, esfuerzo y frustración no tendría precio!  ¿Será qué los deberes diarios pueden ser cosa del pasado?

Ivon Prefontaine's insight:

Listen as an educator to the story the parent is telling. Yes, parents can be over the top with their advocacy. What are the reasons for that?

This is hard to research, but a tentative conclusion would be to praise the character revealed rather than the actions. I think it is important to know the child and situations, but it makes a certain amount of sense.

Great linked-out presentation of research studies by NYT Sunday Review columnist Adam Grant.

Is this the model of research essay that we will be teaching in class after two more MLA updates?  ;-)
