Description

Does homework work? Why is it assigned, and is it effective for good learning?

This book collects together the rich experience of a dozen Waldorf teachers who address issues such as how much homework should be given? How can a teacher best support and evaluate a student's progress? And does homework make sense?

This unique collection on a challenging topic comes to a thoroughly-discussed and perhaps surprising conclusion. Parents and teachers who are wondering about the meaning and effectiveness of homework will appreciate the fully-informed opinions in this valuable book.
