Advancing Ownership of Understanding and Responsibility through Homework in Mathematics Education.
Spadano, Joseph W.; Zeidler, Dana L.; Chappell, Michaele F.
Philosophical traditions have a pedagogical impact on how educators willingly or unwittingly conduct themselves. This paper presents an analytic review of two contrasting educational philosophies and their corresponding learning outcomes. Questions are raised concerning the schism that exists between teacher-centered and learner-centered educational orientations, and their implications to concepts central to education such as ownership of understanding and responsibility. An argument is presented as to how a rationale policy of homework may be able to bring about goals consistent with current reform initiatives without radically altering curriculum or pedagogy.
