Homework: Why and WHY NOT

Print Friendly

Once again, I joined Larry Jacobs on Education Talk Radio–this time to talk about homework. In this lively show, we discuss some of the problems with the way homework is often implemented in schools as well as some ideas for how it can be better.

I highly recommend Larry’s radio show. His fun and thought-provoking episodes provide great food for thought for all educators. The show’s length (usually about 30 minutes) is perfect for the commute to or from school!
