Is homework worth the time? | eSchool News:
A recent study led by an Indiana University professor found that traditional homework assignments won’t improve a student’s grades but could boost standardized test scores.
With many students reporting they spend more than 100 hours each year on homework, it begs the question: Is homework still worth the time?
While most experts believe it is, some recommend that educators rethink their approach to giving homework. Traditional assignments might become a thing of the past as teachers move toward assignments that are more project-based or require more critical thinking, they say.
Indiana’s Taylor High School is among the schools making those changes.
