Homework has many benefits including (besides the obvious review and reinforcement) teaching students responsibility, time management, independence, problem-solving, preparation, and perseverance. It also gives me an assessment tool for determining how successfully students are progressing as well as how effectively I am teaching. Additionally, it provides an opportunity for parents to interact with their children and have a connection to the curriculum being taught in the classroom.
That being said, I aim to be a teacher who gives her students something more to take home and think about besides homework. I will rarely assign it, and when I do, it is usually overflow from what has not been finished in class.
If you have any questions/concerns regarding homework, please let me know!
