I Hate Homework. I Assign It Anyway.

Fantastic post with a very true message. Homework just for the sake of ‘homework’ is detrimental to learning and general wellbeing at home and school. Homework with a specific purpose to reinforce and practise skills taught at school in an engaging, simple and minimally time dependent way is far superior.

Its like the maths problem: 1 really good question done in an entire lesson is superior to 100 different poor questions done in the same lesson.
