Articles debating the value of homework

Ok, ladies, prepare for the onslaught.  I have been coming across so many interesting articles on education in general, on project ideas, on local events you might want to know about, etc. that I will be posting a lot this week.  You have been warned.

First, two articles on homework that came my way this week.  I wonder if there is a movement beginning in the intellectual/theorhetical realm of educational that would eventually trickle down to better practices involving homework in the nation-wide educational system. . . here's hoping!

#1: Rethinking Homework by Alfie Kohn.

#2: The Trouble With Homework by Annie Murphy Paul. Enjoy! If you like reading about educational movements, that is.
