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.
