To give homework, or not to give homework, that is the question!
Teachers have various feelings about homework. Some teachers have the mindset that students should have some percentage of homework that correlates with how much school work they have. Some teachers feel that students have worked hard enough all day and do not need any more work at home. Some districts or schools have homework policies in place that teachers have no input about.
I have worked at schools with various requirements. I taught younger grades, and we were told at one of my schools that students in kindergarten should have about 15 minutes of homework and 15 minutes for reading for a total of 30 minutes. These time frames increased as the grades went up until they got to 6th grade and have an hour of homework and 30 minutes for reading. Some sites I worked at just had kids complete the classwork they did not finish in class. Some schools said the homework had to be able to be completed independently by the student. Other policies came into play at that point. Could we require homework? Could it be graded? Who is actually doing the homework? Should we just grade for completion or participation? How does that hold value if some kids are doing it and some parents are just signing off that they are doing it? What if a student has an IEP or a 504? What value does homework have?
Other factors need to be considered when making homework policies. Do the students have access to the materials at home they need to be successful? Internet access, books to read, access to a quiet workspace, people they can ask for help, and supplies to do the homework, are all factors that need to be considered when deciding if homework is going to be a benefit to students.
My personal view on homework changed when I became a parent. Before I was a mom, I didn’t understand why people found it so difficult to get homework completed and turned in. Fast forward to when I had four kids in elementary school. My kids were in 6th grade, 4th grade, 3rd grade, and kindergarten. At that time, I worked at a school with a required homework policy. It was difficult to help all of my kids with their homework each night. We had all of the resources we needed to help our kids, but it was still overwhelming, especially when we had other commitments on the same evenings.
I can see both sides of the issue. I have been a parent overwhelmed with assisting my kids with homework, and I have been the teacher that sees the value of some homework being given. I have been the teacher that was required to give homework, but I have also been at schools where it was the teacher’s discretion and I did not require extra work. I have also been the teacher that has asked students to complete the unfinished work at home. It’s hard to find the balance of what is the right thing to do for students. How do you feel about homework?
