After reading Love in the Time of Homeschooling by Laura Brodie I wanted to read some books about homework Laura Brodie saw her daughter wilt under the weight of so much homework Brodie decided to homeschool for one year and while she never seems comfortable as a homeschooler she s critical of public education and the push for results on standardized tests Anyhow Brodie s book The Evenings A Winter S Tale led me to want to read about the research on homework There s aot of research out there suggesting that homework is neither useful or helpful especially in the primary grades Homework seems to Believing Heart leaveittle time for other creative pursuits and seems to suck away intellectual curiosity from young burdened students When teachers either eliminated homework or greatly reduced assigned homework they noticed that their students became reinvigorated for Guerras Mgicas Libro 1 learning Isn t that what it s all about anyway There s aot to think about it here and I m not done doing my homework on homework As a kid I never understood why after 6 to 8 hours trying to sit still and absorb a constant one way stream of pre dictated information I had to go home and do it all over againAlfie Kohn finally puts the value of I must admit first off that I read this for a professional development class not just for fun At first Kohn s arguments and research are basic grounded and I Survived Ted Bundy The Attack Escape Ptsd That Changed My Life logical But in chapter 4 skeptically titled Studies Show Or Do They Kohn clearly shows his biases in claiming that any research supporting homework is actually skewed because the uestions were deceptively worded or those polled were of aimited demographic However he fails to The Berkeley Fiction Review look at the same issues in the research that opposes homework And from that chapter onward I struggled toisten seriously to Kohn s claims because he clearly refused to enter the conversation about homework and instead just screamed his opinions at the reader Additionally as this was published in 2006 ie pre smart phones I think some of his arguments about what kids do in the evening have to change No A Wife S Secret Playing With Love Book 1 longer are kids out playing and bike riding instead they re just staring at phones oraptops which is primarily for entertainment s sake not for anything educational While I agree with some of the substance Kohn presents against homework I could not buy into it 100% due to his biased pretentious writing This book was great I m going to write a book myself Too Much Homework Not Enough Home Abolish all homework Kohn s complaints about HW a burden to parents stress for children oh I m sorry I thought school was supposed to be workWhen he writes that most HW studies show only an association not a causal relationship Kohn is trying to stretch the association and put a wedge into the beliefs He also critisizes his opponents use of citiations while flaunting his own out of text citations He claims counter studies are flawed becaue they re pass fail option But there are still surely points acuired to meet the pass reuirement Abolishing homework would be anti work ethic HW keeps them engaged Successf I much preferred the other two books by Alfie Kohn that I ve read Unconditional Parenting and Punished by Rewards This one felt Lifelines A Dartmouth Medical School Literary Magazine like aot of uoting others and unnecessarily Peaceful Garden long winded in places I know some people are obsessed with evidence and sources and proof but I feelike although studies show has its place I would ve Confluence The Journal Of Graduate Liberal Studies liked Kohness uotations Also as he proves studies can be presented from a number of different angles can totally ignore some aspects of the situation and be debunked If you re particularly interested in homework itself read this one I don t remember the other two books going into depth about that Probably PbR than UP Those had a greater impact on me and seemed to take in the bigger picture Christopher Wilder The True Story Of The Beauty Queen Killer like I genuinely believe the ideas in those books can change our world Maybe this one wasess impressive to me because the idea of homework at Children Of The Spider least how it s given as the default having negative conseuences seems obvious to meSaying that this book definitely has it s merits Many people can see how homework takes up so much of kids time destroys their natural motivation toearn and affects their mental health But when the school is pressuring you to make your kids do homework or wors.

Alfie Kohn ô 5 ReadEen increased engagement in class and WORK with results Kohn s book is well researched and he even gives ideas of how to forge ahead What I appreciated most about his book is that he doesn t take the argument that HW is inherently bad and should be repudiated at all costs but rather that everyone just assumes HW is a fact of ife and therefore it must have some redeemable uality In other words the WRONG assumption most people make is that it s inherently good Very few people if any it seems at times critically evaluate reasons for and types of HW The simple act of asking Why would ead to dramatic changes in pedagogy around HW I began teaching in Balti and the principal mandated that we assign homework everyday She once came over the oudspeaker to threaten teachers because she d heard a rumor that teachers weren t assigning HW everyday Why was this so important Because some uack group calling themselves High Schools that Work said that good high schools assigned Girl Over Paris The Graphic Novel lots of HW Was there any conversation about what constitutes good HW NO How much time students should be spending on HW NO Why it had to be everyday NO Whether it was helping NO Whether it was being done NO How it was being checked NO Assessed NO Etc etc etc Kohn s book is a plea to consider these things and not only consider them but to really think about what good educationooks Damosel In Which The Lady Of The Lake Renders A Frank And Often Startling Account Of Her Wondrous Life And Times like and what we want the uality of ourives and our kids ives to be Not surprisingly he also ashes out against our hyper standardized test culture and ties these two pervasive things together As a side note he embarrasses Robert Marzano by easily dismantling his shoddy scholarship on the subject of HW Alfie Kohn should In The Name Of Love Romantic Ideology And Its Victims look up rhetorical appeals before he writes another book namely he should have recent evidence as well as case studies from fictitious families That is families who don t drink milk with mom and dad after school while embroidering pillows praising God and the government of yore Kids should be kids yes but homework is part of ensuring thatearning continues after the classroom door closes further in some cases it can actually keep kids as kids giving them a sense of pride and responsibility in their work instead of wasted hours in front of the XBox or worse behaviors I don t give much homework but that is because I don t believe in busy work however I should have given independent practice this past year and that s something I intend to rectify next year Kohn s reasoning is simply faulty and small minded I should begin by saying that I recently heard Alfie Kohn speak and was a big fan of what he had to say about education and parenting His views on homework nutshell kids shouldn t have homework were new to me and got me thinking deeply about the homework I see Cameron bring home and whether or not it is beneficial After reading The Homework Myth I find myself a bit depressed because I am convinced that homework doesn t help the vast majority of kids and in fact hurts many it damages intrinsic motivation it puts stress on the parent child relationship it makes interesting subjects boring I m talking to you worksheets it takes time away from beneficial activities and it frustrates struggling kids among other things The reason I am depressed though is because I don t see an easy way out As far as I know there isn t a school in the area that doesn t give homework and I don t know that it s super ikely that that will change anytime soon I do however plan on asking a few uestions at parent teacher conference about the kinds of homework I m seeing in Cameron s backpack If
