Homework--And Why. Fastback 218.
England, David A.; Flatley, Joannis K.
Attitudes toward homework are explored through a review of research and interviews. The interviews were conducted with teachers, students, principals, and parents on the pros and cons of homework assignments. Included in the discussions were the kinds of homework assigned, reasons for the assignments, time spent on homework, and the effects of homework on learning. Responses revealed a number of conflicting opinions as well as problems facing teachers and students regarding homework. Suggestions are made for improving the quality of homework assignments and strategies are offered for alleviating the problems. (JD)
