10 Expections - Leaving To Learn


Summarized findings from articles below:

  • Research shows that homework can increase student achievement when it is purposeful, bridges the gap between what has been done in class and what is yet to come, and has recognizable merit to students. It can extend the school day and reinforce learning habits.
  • After 90-150 minutes per night for high school students, time spent on homework has diminishing returns
  • Factors related to home life and access to technology can affect students' ability to complete work outside of school, broadening acheivement gap
  • Content of homework assignments makes better use of homework time than quantity of homework
  • When students see homework as unengaging "busy work," they may become disenchated with school and the learning process in general
