Rethinking Homework

3 Credits
You either love homework or hate it. Whether you align yourself closer to the no-homework camp or to the pro-homework camp, it is inevitable that homework will always be a part of our educational landscape. It is the cause of more friction between administrators, teachers and families than any other aspect of education. This online course is designed to help all stakeholders grapple with the cyclic homework battle. We'll work together to find common ground that will turn homework into a cooperative effort that promotes learning while at the same time force the educator to grapple with their own philosophy of homework. Learn variations in homework that can influence academic achievement and how parents affect the homework process.

NOTE: Required textbooks must be purchased separately.

This course is applicable towards the Student Engagement Certificate.

I love to teach. I can’t say it any plainer than that. Teaching makes me feel incredibly alive. I am thrilled to watch a student grow to achieve his or her potential and I love to help other educators make this happen too. My courses are designed around proven research-based practices and strategies, and as a life-long learner I am constantly seeking new ways to reach and inspire my fellow educators. The online environment provides an opportunity for community with interaction between participants and me. I enthusiastically make myself available to everyone, sharing my experiences, helping with technology, and more. I look forward to traveling with you on this journey of education. Come and learn with me!
