Doing homework can be both time-consuming and frustrating, and you probably want to do more with your free time than just homework. When you have a lot of work to do, it can be tough to work efficiently. By staying focused, organizing and planning, and motivating yourself, you can get your homework done in a timely manner and move onto more fun and exciting activities. But you should start with putting away all distractions such as your devices unless you need them.They are normally the main distraction. You should also work in a quiet place so you are not attempted to go and do something else. For example, you should not work near your TV because you will be tempted to go and watch it.

Step 1 Work in a comfortable, well-lit environment.

  • Download website-blocking apps such as Freedom or SelfControl to stay focused while using your computer for homework. Some, such as the Chrome extension Strict Workflow, even have the added bonus of preventing you from cancelling the timer once it has started.

Step 3 Set a timer.

  • If one subject or type of assignment is taking much more time than the others, you may want to ask for a little extra help in that area from your teacher or parent.
  • If you get distracted or go off-task, don't make excuses for yourself. (e.g. "I won't be able to focus until I do this anyway." or "I'm sure it will only take a minute or two."

Step 1 Get your supplies in order.

  • Consider consolidating your multiple different subject folders and notebooks into one big binder separated by tab dividers. This way, all of your schoolwork will be in one place.

Step 2 Make a homework plan for the evening.

  • Decide how much time you want to spend on your homework collectively.
  • Make a list of all the different tasks you need to finish.
  • Estimate how much time you’ll be able to spend on each task to finish your homework when you want to.
  • Work straight through your list and cross tasks off as you go. [7] X Research source

Step 3 Start your homework soon after you get home from school.

  • A ten page essay that’s due in a week that you haven’t started should be labeled an “A” or “B” while a short five question worksheet due in three days may be labeled a “C”.
  • Make sure you don't wait until the last second to get assignments done.

Step 1 Take breaks.

  • Try eating celery sticks and apple slices with peanut butter.

Step 3 Reward yourself with a fun post-homework activity.

Tips from our Readers

  • If you set a timer, it can motivate you to get your homework done more quickly. Be sure to take a 2-5 minute break in between. For example, if you're going to do an assignment that you expect to take 30 minutes, set a timer for 15 minutes. Take a 2-minute break when the timer goes off, then set your timer again for 15 minutes.
  • It can be good to have friends over if they help motivate you and are interested in getting their homework done quickly as well. They might be a distraction at times but it can also be easier to work when there are people around you who are working too.
  • If you drink something cold during your breaks it can help make you more alert so that you'll finish faster. It might also help to do it at night rather than during the day so you feel more time pressure.
  • Try to get your homework done as much as you can in school. You could do it during a flex or study hall. If your teacher gives you time in class to work on it, use it.

Does Homework Really Help Students Learn?

A conversation with a Wheelock researcher, a BU student, and a fourth-grade teacher

child doing homework

“Quality homework is engaging and relevant to kids’ lives,” says Wheelock’s Janine Bempechat. “It gives them autonomy and engages them in the community and with their families. In some subjects, like math, worksheets can be very helpful. It has to do with the value of practicing over and over.” Photo by iStock/Glenn Cook Photography

Do your homework.

If only it were that simple.

Educators have debated the merits of homework since the late 19th century. In recent years, amid concerns of some parents and teachers that children are being stressed out by too much homework, things have only gotten more fraught.

“Homework is complicated,” says developmental psychologist Janine Bempechat, a Wheelock College of Education & Human Development clinical professor. The author of the essay “ The Case for (Quality) Homework—Why It Improves Learning and How Parents Can Help ” in the winter 2019 issue of Education Next , Bempechat has studied how the debate about homework is influencing teacher preparation, parent and student beliefs about learning, and school policies.

She worries especially about socioeconomically disadvantaged students from low-performing schools who, according to research by Bempechat and others, get little or no homework.

BU Today  sat down with Bempechat and Erin Bruce (Wheelock’17,’18), a new fourth-grade teacher at a suburban Boston school, and future teacher freshman Emma Ardizzone (Wheelock) to talk about what quality homework looks like, how it can help children learn, and how schools can equip teachers to design it, evaluate it, and facilitate parents’ role in it.

BU Today: Parents and educators who are against homework in elementary school say there is no research definitively linking it to academic performance for kids in the early grades. You’ve said that they’re missing the point.

Bempechat : I think teachers assign homework in elementary school as a way to help kids develop skills they’ll need when they’re older—to begin to instill a sense of responsibility and to learn planning and organizational skills. That’s what I think is the greatest value of homework—in cultivating beliefs about learning and skills associated with academic success. If we greatly reduce or eliminate homework in elementary school, we deprive kids and parents of opportunities to instill these important learning habits and skills.

We do know that beginning in late middle school, and continuing through high school, there is a strong and positive correlation between homework completion and academic success.

That’s what I think is the greatest value of homework—in cultivating beliefs about learning and skills associated with academic success.

You talk about the importance of quality homework. What is that?

Quality homework is engaging and relevant to kids’ lives. It gives them autonomy and engages them in the community and with their families. In some subjects, like math, worksheets can be very helpful. It has to do with the value of practicing over and over.

Janine Bempechat

What are your concerns about homework and low-income children?

The argument that some people make—that homework “punishes the poor” because lower-income parents may not be as well-equipped as affluent parents to help their children with homework—is very troubling to me. There are no parents who don’t care about their children’s learning. Parents don’t actually have to help with homework completion in order for kids to do well. They can help in other ways—by helping children organize a study space, providing snacks, being there as a support, helping children work in groups with siblings or friends.

Isn’t the discussion about getting rid of homework happening mostly in affluent communities?

Yes, and the stories we hear of kids being stressed out from too much homework—four or five hours of homework a night—are real. That’s problematic for physical and mental health and overall well-being. But the research shows that higher-income students get a lot more homework than lower-income kids.

Teachers may not have as high expectations for lower-income children. Schools should bear responsibility for providing supports for kids to be able to get their homework done—after-school clubs, community support, peer group support. It does kids a disservice when our expectations are lower for them.

The conversation around homework is to some extent a social class and social justice issue. If we eliminate homework for all children because affluent children have too much, we’re really doing a disservice to low-income children. They need the challenge, and every student can rise to the challenge with enough supports in place.

What did you learn by studying how education schools are preparing future teachers to handle homework?

My colleague, Margarita Jimenez-Silva, at the University of California, Davis, School of Education, and I interviewed faculty members at education schools, as well as supervising teachers, to find out how students are being prepared. And it seemed that they weren’t. There didn’t seem to be any readings on the research, or conversations on what high-quality homework is and how to design it.

Erin, what kind of training did you get in handling homework?

Bruce : I had phenomenal professors at Wheelock, but homework just didn’t come up. I did lots of student teaching. I’ve been in classrooms where the teachers didn’t assign any homework, and I’ve been in rooms where they assigned hours of homework a night. But I never even considered homework as something that was my decision. I just thought it was something I’d pull out of a book and it’d be done.

I started giving homework on the first night of school this year. My first assignment was to go home and draw a picture of the room where you do your homework. I want to know if it’s at a table and if there are chairs around it and if mom’s cooking dinner while you’re doing homework.

The second night I asked them to talk to a grown-up about how are you going to be able to get your homework done during the week. The kids really enjoyed it. There’s a running joke that I’m teaching life skills.

Friday nights, I read all my kids’ responses to me on their homework from the week and it’s wonderful. They pour their hearts out. It’s like we’re having a conversation on my couch Friday night.

It matters to know that the teacher cares about you and that what you think matters to the teacher. Homework is a vehicle to connect home and school…for parents to know teachers are welcoming to them and their families.

Bempechat : I can’t imagine that most new teachers would have the intuition Erin had in designing homework the way she did.

Ardizzone : Conversations with kids about homework, feeling you’re being listened to—that’s such a big part of wanting to do homework….I grew up in Westchester County. It was a pretty demanding school district. My junior year English teacher—I loved her—she would give us feedback, have meetings with all of us. She’d say, “If you have any questions, if you have anything you want to talk about, you can talk to me, here are my office hours.” It felt like she actually cared.

Bempechat : It matters to know that the teacher cares about you and that what you think matters to the teacher. Homework is a vehicle to connect home and school…for parents to know teachers are welcoming to them and their families.

Ardizzone : But can’t it lead to parents being overbearing and too involved in their children’s lives as students?

Bempechat : There’s good help and there’s bad help. The bad help is what you’re describing—when parents hover inappropriately, when they micromanage, when they see their children confused and struggling and tell them what to do.

Good help is when parents recognize there’s a struggle going on and instead ask informative questions: “Where do you think you went wrong?” They give hints, or pointers, rather than saying, “You missed this,” or “You didn’t read that.”

Bruce : I hope something comes of this. I hope BU or Wheelock can think of some way to make this a more pressing issue. As a first-year teacher, it was not something I even thought about on the first day of school—until a kid raised his hand and said, “Do we have homework?” It would have been wonderful if I’d had a plan from day one.

Insightful! The values about homework in elementary schools are well aligned with my intuition as a parent.

when i finish my work i do my homework and i sometimes forget what to do because i did not get enough sleep

same omg it does not help me it is stressful and if I have it in more than one class I hate it.

Same I think my parent wants to help me but, she doesn’t care if I get bad grades so I just try my best and my grades are great.

I think that last question about Good help from parents is not know to all parents, we do as our parents did or how we best think it can be done, so maybe coaching parents or giving them resources on how to help with homework would be very beneficial for the parent on how to help and for the teacher to have consistency and improve homework results, and of course for the child. I do see how homework helps reaffirm the knowledge obtained in the classroom, I also have the ability to see progress and it is a time I share with my kids

The answer to the headline question is a no-brainer – a more pressing problem is why there is a difference in how students from different cultures succeed. Perfect example is the student population at BU – why is there a majority population of Asian students and only about 3% black students at BU? In fact at some universities there are law suits by Asians to stop discrimination and quotas against admitting Asian students because the real truth is that as a group they are demonstrating better qualifications for admittance, while at the same time there are quotas and reduced requirements for black students to boost their portion of the student population because as a group they do more poorly in meeting admissions standards – and it is not about the Benjamins. The real problem is that in our PC society no one has the gazuntas to explore this issue as it may reveal that all people are not created equal after all. Or is it just environmental cultural differences??????

I get you have a concern about the issue but that is not even what the point of this article is about. If you have an issue please take this to the site we have and only post your opinion about the actual topic

This is not at all what the article is talking about.

This literally has nothing to do with the article brought up. You should really take your opinions somewhere else before you speak about something that doesn’t make sense.

we have the same name

so they have the same name what of it?

lol you tell her

totally agree

What does that have to do with homework, that is not what the article talks about AT ALL.

Yes, I think homework plays an important role in the development of student life. Through homework, students have to face challenges on a daily basis and they try to solve them quickly.I am an intense online tutor at 24x7homeworkhelp and I give homework to my students at that level in which they handle it easily.

More than two-thirds of students said they used alcohol and drugs, primarily marijuana, to cope with stress.

You know what’s funny? I got this assignment to write an argument for homework about homework and this article was really helpful and understandable, and I also agree with this article’s point of view.

I also got the same task as you! I was looking for some good resources and I found this! I really found this article useful and easy to understand, just like you! ^^

i think that homework is the best thing that a child can have on the school because it help them with their thinking and memory.

I am a child myself and i think homework is a terrific pass time because i can’t play video games during the week. It also helps me set goals.

Homework is not harmful ,but it will if there is too much

I feel like, from a minors point of view that we shouldn’t get homework. Not only is the homework stressful, but it takes us away from relaxing and being social. For example, me and my friends was supposed to hang at the mall last week but we had to postpone it since we all had some sort of work to do. Our minds shouldn’t be focused on finishing an assignment that in realty, doesn’t matter. I completely understand that we should have homework. I have to write a paper on the unimportance of homework so thanks.

homework isn’t that bad

Are you a student? if not then i don’t really think you know how much and how severe todays homework really is

i am a student and i do not enjoy homework because i practice my sport 4 out of the five days we have school for 4 hours and that’s not even counting the commute time or the fact i still have to shower and eat dinner when i get home. its draining!

i totally agree with you. these people are such boomers

why just why

they do make a really good point, i think that there should be a limit though. hours and hours of homework can be really stressful, and the extra work isn’t making a difference to our learning, but i do believe homework should be optional and extra credit. that would make it for students to not have the leaning stress of a assignment and if you have a low grade you you can catch up.

Studies show that homework improves student achievement in terms of improved grades, test results, and the likelihood to attend college. Research published in the High School Journal indicates that students who spent between 31 and 90 minutes each day on homework “scored about 40 points higher on the SAT-Mathematics subtest than their peers, who reported spending no time on homework each day, on average.” On both standardized tests and grades, students in classes that were assigned homework outperformed 69% of students who didn’t have homework. A majority of studies on homework’s impact – 64% in one meta-study and 72% in another – showed that take home assignments were effective at improving academic achievement. Research by the Institute for the Study of Labor (IZA) concluded that increased homework led to better GPAs and higher probability of college attendance for high school boys. In fact, boys who attended college did more than three hours of additional homework per week in high school.

So how are your measuring student achievement? That’s the real question. The argument that doing homework is simply a tool for teaching responsibility isn’t enough for me. We can teach responsibility in a number of ways. Also the poor argument that parents don’t need to help with homework, and that students can do it on their own, is wishful thinking at best. It completely ignores neurodiverse students. Students in poverty aren’t magically going to find a space to do homework, a friend’s or siblings to help them do it, and snacks to eat. I feel like the author of this piece has never set foot in a classroom of students.

THIS. This article is pathetic coming from a university. So intellectually dishonest, refusing to address the havoc of capitalism and poverty plays on academic success in life. How can they in one sentence use poor kids in an argument and never once address that poor children have access to damn near 0 of the resources affluent kids have? Draw me a picture and let’s talk about feelings lmao what a joke is that gonna put food in their belly so they can have the calories to burn in order to use their brain to study? What about quiet their 7 other siblings that they share a single bedroom with for hours? Is it gonna force the single mom to magically be at home and at work at the same time to cook food while you study and be there to throw an encouraging word?

Also the “parents don’t need to be a parent and be able to guide their kid at all academically they just need to exist in the next room” is wild. Its one thing if a parent straight up is not equipped but to say kids can just figured it out is…. wow coming from an educator What’s next the teacher doesn’t need to teach cause the kid can just follow the packet and figure it out?

Well then get a tutor right? Oh wait you are poor only affluent kids can afford a tutor for their hours of homework a day were they on average have none of the worries a poor child does. Does this address that poor children are more likely to also suffer abuse and mental illness? Like mentioned what about kids that can’t learn or comprehend the forced standardized way? Just let em fail? These children regularly are not in “special education”(some of those are a joke in their own and full of neglect and abuse) programs cause most aren’t even acknowledged as having disabilities or disorders.

But yes all and all those pesky poor kids just aren’t being worked hard enough lol pretty sure poor children’s existence just in childhood is more work, stress, and responsibility alone than an affluent child’s entire life cycle. Love they never once talked about the quality of education in the classroom being so bad between the poor and affluent it can qualify as segregation, just basically blamed poor people for being lazy, good job capitalism for failing us once again!

why the hell?

you should feel bad for saying this, this article can be helpful for people who has to write a essay about it

This is more of a political rant than it is about homework

I know a teacher who has told his students their homework is to find something they are interested in, pursue it and then come share what they learn. The student responses are quite compelling. One girl taught herself German so she could talk to her grandfather. One boy did a research project on Nelson Mandela because the teacher had mentioned him in class. Another boy, a both on the autism spectrum, fixed his family’s computer. The list goes on. This is fourth grade. I think students are highly motivated to learn, when we step aside and encourage them.

The whole point of homework is to give the students a chance to use the material that they have been presented with in class. If they never have the opportunity to use that information, and discover that it is actually useful, it will be in one ear and out the other. As a science teacher, it is critical that the students are challenged to use the material they have been presented with, which gives them the opportunity to actually think about it rather than regurgitate “facts”. Well designed homework forces the student to think conceptually, as opposed to regurgitation, which is never a pretty sight

Wonderful discussion. and yes, homework helps in learning and building skills in students.

not true it just causes kids to stress

Homework can be both beneficial and unuseful, if you will. There are students who are gifted in all subjects in school and ones with disabilities. Why should the students who are gifted get the lucky break, whereas the people who have disabilities suffer? The people who were born with this “gift” go through school with ease whereas people with disabilities struggle with the work given to them. I speak from experience because I am one of those students: the ones with disabilities. Homework doesn’t benefit “us”, it only tears us down and put us in an abyss of confusion and stress and hopelessness because we can’t learn as fast as others. Or we can’t handle the amount of work given whereas the gifted students go through it with ease. It just brings us down and makes us feel lost; because no mater what, it feels like we are destined to fail. It feels like we weren’t “cut out” for success.

homework does help

here is the thing though, if a child is shoved in the face with a whole ton of homework that isn’t really even considered homework it is assignments, it’s not helpful. the teacher should make homework more of a fun learning experience rather than something that is dreaded

This article was wonderful, I am going to ask my teachers about extra, or at all giving homework.

I agree. Especially when you have homework before an exam. Which is distasteful as you’ll need that time to study. It doesn’t make any sense, nor does us doing homework really matters as It’s just facts thrown at us.

Homework is too severe and is just too much for students, schools need to decrease the amount of homework. When teachers assign homework they forget that the students have other classes that give them the same amount of homework each day. Students need to work on social skills and life skills.

I disagree.

Beyond achievement, proponents of homework argue that it can have many other beneficial effects. They claim it can help students develop good study habits so they are ready to grow as their cognitive capacities mature. It can help students recognize that learning can occur at home as well as at school. Homework can foster independent learning and responsible character traits. And it can give parents an opportunity to see what’s going on at school and let them express positive attitudes toward achievement.

Homework is helpful because homework helps us by teaching us how to learn a specific topic.

As a student myself, I can say that I have almost never gotten the full 9 hours of recommended sleep time, because of homework. (Now I’m writing an essay on it in the middle of the night D=)

I am a 10 year old kid doing a report about “Is homework good or bad” for homework before i was going to do homework is bad but the sources from this site changed my mind!

Homeowkr is god for stusenrs

I agree with hunter because homework can be so stressful especially with this whole covid thing no one has time for homework and every one just wants to get back to there normal lives it is especially stressful when you go on a 2 week vaca 3 weeks into the new school year and and then less then a week after you come back from the vaca you are out for over a month because of covid and you have no way to get the assignment done and turned in

As great as homework is said to be in the is article, I feel like the viewpoint of the students was left out. Every where I go on the internet researching about this topic it almost always has interviews from teachers, professors, and the like. However isn’t that a little biased? Of course teachers are going to be for homework, they’re not the ones that have to stay up past midnight completing the homework from not just one class, but all of them. I just feel like this site is one-sided and you should include what the students of today think of spending four hours every night completing 6-8 classes worth of work.

Are we talking about homework or practice? Those are two very different things and can result in different outcomes.

Homework is a graded assignment. I do not know of research showing the benefits of graded assignments going home.

Practice; however, can be extremely beneficial, especially if there is some sort of feedback (not a grade but feedback). That feedback can come from the teacher, another student or even an automated grading program.

As a former band director, I assigned daily practice. I never once thought it would be appropriate for me to require the students to turn in a recording of their practice for me to grade. Instead, I had in-class assignments/assessments that were graded and directly related to the practice assigned.

I would really like to read articles on “homework” that truly distinguish between the two.

oof i feel bad good luck!

thank you guys for the artical because I have to finish an assingment. yes i did cite it but just thanks

thx for the article guys.

Homework is good

I think homework is helpful AND harmful. Sometimes u can’t get sleep bc of homework but it helps u practice for school too so idk.

I agree with this Article. And does anyone know when this was published. I would like to know.

It was published FEb 19, 2019.

Studies have shown that homework improved student achievement in terms of improved grades, test results, and the likelihood to attend college.

i think homework can help kids but at the same time not help kids

This article is so out of touch with majority of homes it would be laughable if it wasn’t so incredibly sad.

There is no value to homework all it does is add stress to already stressed homes. Parents or adults magically having the time or energy to shepherd kids through homework is dome sort of 1950’s fantasy.

What lala land do these teachers live in?

Homework gives noting to the kid

Homework is Bad

homework is bad.

why do kids even have homework?

We've created a list to help you do just that! We'll start by walking you through some ways to prepare the night before and then share a few pointers to help you have a stress-free morning.

Figure out how much time you'll need in the morning.

Review your assignments and estimate how long it will take you to finish each one.

  • Don't forget to leave plenty of time for eating breakfast and getting ready!

Leave your homework out so it's ready to go.

Organize your work now so you don't waste any time in the morning.

  • If you think you might need stuff like a dictionary, graph paper, or a ruler, go ahead and grab it now. [3] X Trustworthy Source Child Mind Institute Nonprofit organization providing evidence-based care for children with mental health and learning disorders and their families Go to source

Pack your lunch and set out your clothes at night.

Get everything ready now so you don't have to think about it later.

Set your alarm to wake you up in the morning.

Put your alarm out of reach so you have to get up to turn it off.

  • If you have a family member who wakes up early, ask them to make sure you’re awake in the morning and to wake you up immediately if you’re still snoozing.

Go to bed at a sensible hour so you won't be tired.

Kids need 8-10 hours of sleep to feel rested the next day.

  • Put your phone on a sleep timer if your friends have a habit of calling or texting you late into the night.

Sit at a desk or table to finish your homework in the morning.

It’s hard to focus and get stuff done if you try to do homework in bed.

  • If your bed is starting to look a little too appealing as you’re working at your desk, get up and go work at the kitchen table, just in case!

Do logic-based homework first.

It’s easier to focus on simple, logic-based work in the morning.

Get up and move around if you start to feel sleepy.

Walk around or do a few quick stretches to wake yourself up.

  • Be careful not to get distracted! Limit your break to 1-2 minutes.

Leave enough time to get to school before the first bell.

Wrap up your work on time so you aren't late for school.

Give yourself more than a day for tough assignments.

Waiting until the last minute is stressful, especially if you don't have enough time.

  • If you're procrastinating because you don't understand the assignment, don't be afraid to ask your teacher to clarify! Ask for clear instructions and examples so you can get started.

Is Homework Good for Kids? Here’s What the Research Says

A s kids return to school, debate is heating up once again over how they should spend their time after they leave the classroom for the day.

The no-homework policy of a second-grade teacher in Texas went viral last week , earning praise from parents across the country who lament the heavy workload often assigned to young students. Brandy Young told parents she would not formally assign any homework this year, asking students instead to eat dinner with their families, play outside and go to bed early.

But the question of how much work children should be doing outside of school remains controversial, and plenty of parents take issue with no-homework policies, worried their kids are losing a potential academic advantage. Here’s what you need to know:

For decades, the homework standard has been a “10-minute rule,” which recommends a daily maximum of 10 minutes of homework per grade level. Second graders, for example, should do about 20 minutes of homework each night. High school seniors should complete about two hours of homework each night. The National PTA and the National Education Association both support that guideline.

But some schools have begun to give their youngest students a break. A Massachusetts elementary school has announced a no-homework pilot program for the coming school year, lengthening the school day by two hours to provide more in-class instruction. “We really want kids to go home at 4 o’clock, tired. We want their brain to be tired,” Kelly Elementary School Principal Jackie Glasheen said in an interview with a local TV station . “We want them to enjoy their families. We want them to go to soccer practice or football practice, and we want them to go to bed. And that’s it.”

A New York City public elementary school implemented a similar policy last year, eliminating traditional homework assignments in favor of family time. The change was quickly met with outrage from some parents, though it earned support from other education leaders.

New solutions and approaches to homework differ by community, and these local debates are complicated by the fact that even education experts disagree about what’s best for kids.

The research

The most comprehensive research on homework to date comes from a 2006 meta-analysis by Duke University psychology professor Harris Cooper, who found evidence of a positive correlation between homework and student achievement, meaning students who did homework performed better in school. The correlation was stronger for older students—in seventh through 12th grade—than for those in younger grades, for whom there was a weak relationship between homework and performance.

Cooper’s analysis focused on how homework impacts academic achievement—test scores, for example. His report noted that homework is also thought to improve study habits, attitudes toward school, self-discipline, inquisitiveness and independent problem solving skills. On the other hand, some studies he examined showed that homework can cause physical and emotional fatigue, fuel negative attitudes about learning and limit leisure time for children. At the end of his analysis, Cooper recommended further study of such potential effects of homework.

Despite the weak correlation between homework and performance for young children, Cooper argues that a small amount of homework is useful for all students. Second-graders should not be doing two hours of homework each night, he said, but they also shouldn’t be doing no homework.

Not all education experts agree entirely with Cooper’s assessment.

Cathy Vatterott, an education professor at the University of Missouri-St. Louis, supports the “10-minute rule” as a maximum, but she thinks there is not sufficient proof that homework is helpful for students in elementary school.

“Correlation is not causation,” she said. “Does homework cause achievement, or do high achievers do more homework?”

Vatterott, the author of Rethinking Homework: Best Practices That Support Diverse Needs , thinks there should be more emphasis on improving the quality of homework tasks, and she supports efforts to eliminate homework for younger kids.

“I have no concerns about students not starting homework until fourth grade or fifth grade,” she said, noting that while the debate over homework will undoubtedly continue, she has noticed a trend toward limiting, if not eliminating, homework in elementary school.

The issue has been debated for decades. A TIME cover in 1999 read: “Too much homework! How it’s hurting our kids, and what parents should do about it.” The accompanying story noted that the launch of Sputnik in 1957 led to a push for better math and science education in the U.S. The ensuing pressure to be competitive on a global scale, plus the increasingly demanding college admissions process, fueled the practice of assigning homework.

“The complaints are cyclical, and we’re in the part of the cycle now where the concern is for too much,” Cooper said. “You can go back to the 1970s, when you’ll find there were concerns that there was too little, when we were concerned about our global competitiveness.”

Cooper acknowledged that some students really are bringing home too much homework, and their parents are right to be concerned.

“A good way to think about homework is the way you think about medications or dietary supplements,” he said. “If you take too little, they’ll have no effect. If you take too much, they can kill you. If you take the right amount, you’ll get better.”

Qual a importância do homework na aprendizagem?

A prática do " homework " (dever de casa) tem sido um componente fundamental no processo educativo, desempenhando um papel crucial na aprendizagem dos alunos. Essa atividade, que transcende as paredes da sala de aula, é essencial por diversos motivos. 

Em primeiro lugar, o homework proporciona uma oportunidade para a prática contínua, permitindo que os estudantes reforcem e consolidem as habilidades e conhecimentos adquiridos em sala de aula no momento assíncrono. Essa repetição e revisão são fundamentais para a retenção de informações a longo prazo.

Além disso, o dever de casa promove a autonomia e a responsabilidade do estudante, incentivando o desenvolvimento de habilidades de gestão do tempo e organização . 

Ao enfrentar desafios fora do ambiente escolar, os alunos aprendem a aplicar conceitos em contextos variados, o que é vital para uma compreensão mais profunda e aplicação prática do conhecimento.

Importante também é o papel do homework na conexão entre ensino e família . 

Quando os pais ou responsáveis se envolvem no processo de aprendizagem por meio do acompanhamento dos deveres de casa, eles não apenas ganham visibilidade sobre o progresso e as dificuldades de seus filhos, mas também contribuem para a valorização da educação.

Contudo, é crucial que o homework seja bem-planejado para servir como apoio para o aprendizado síncrono. 

Ao explorarmos a essencialidade do momento assíncrono, adentramos em um mundo onde a prática e a repetição se tornam as chaves para desbloquear o verdadeiro potencial da aprendizagem.

Este artigo, portanto, se debruça em compreender a importância, assim como reduzir a aversão de muitos alunos sobre a prática do “ homework ”. Além disso, apresentaremos a “ Metodologia Flexge ” que tem demonstrado resultados positivos na adesão dos alunos a esta atividade. Veja o que abordaremos:

Mas, afinal, o que é o homework ? Qual a importância do “ homework ” para a aprendizagem do aluno? Como superar a aversão ao Homework ? Algumas estratégias para superar estes desafios Conheça a metodologia Flexge Aprenda a importância dos exercícios gamificados Conclusão

Mas, afinal, o que é o homework ?

O " homework ", ou dever de casa, é uma prática educacional fundamental. Tradicionalmente, refere-se a tarefas ou exercícios que os professores atribuem aos alunos para serem completados fora do horário escolar - momento assíncrono. 

O objetivo principal do homework é reforçar o aprendizado ocorrido na sala de aula, permitindo aos estudantes praticar e consolidar os conhecimentos adquiridos. 

Além disso, o homework serve como uma ferramenta para que os educadores avaliem a compreensão dos alunos sobre determinados tópicos e identifiquem áreas que necessitam de mais atenção.

Essa prática também promove habilidades importantes como autodisciplina, responsabilidade e gestão do tempo, pois os alunos são encarregados de organizar seu tempo e recursos para completar as tarefas. 

Qual a importância do “ homework ” para a aprendizagem do aluno?

O dever de casa, ou " homework ", é um componente vital no processo educacional dos alunos. Sua importância vai além da simples revisão de conteúdos ensinados em sala de aula; ele é um instrumento chave para o fortalecimento e aprofundamento do aprendizado. 

Ao realizar exercícios assíncronos, os alunos têm a oportunidade de praticar e assimilar os conceitos aprendidos, o que contribui para a retenção e compreensão do assunto. 

Além disso, o homework permite que os educadores avaliem a eficácia do ensino e identifiquem áreas que requerem atenção adicional.

Ao encarar desafios e resolver problemas por conta própria, os alunos desenvolvem habilidades importantes, como a autonomia, o pensamento crítico e a capacidade de aplicar o conhecimento em diferentes contextos. 

Essas habilidades são essenciais para o sucesso acadêmico e profissional a longo prazo. Portanto, o homework não é apenas uma extensão da sala de aula, mas um componente fundamental que enriquece e complementa a jornada de aprendizagem dos alunos.

No entanto, muitos alunos apresentam forte aversão e dificuldades de realizar o dever de casa, por diversos motivos .

Como superar a aversão ao Homework ?

Superar a aversão ao homework é um desafio comum tanto para estudantes quanto para educadores. O primeiro passo é entender a importância do homework na consolidação do aprendizado. 

Ele não é apenas uma tarefa, mas uma extensão da sala de aula que permite prática e reforço dos conceitos aprendidos.

Para tornar o homework mais atraente, é crucial que ele seja significativo e relevante . Os educadores devem projetar tarefas que sejam desafiadoras, mas realizáveis, e que estejam alinhadas com os interesses dos alunos. 

Isso aumenta a motivação e o engajamento dos estudantes.

Além disso, a criação de um ambiente de estudo organizado e livre de distrações é essencial. Um local tranquilo e confortável ajuda a manter o foco e a eficiência.

Os alunos também devem aprender a gerenciar seu tempo eficientemente. Dividir o homework em partes menores e estabelecer um cronograma regular pode tornar a tarefa menos avassaladora.

Por fim, o feedback positivo e o reconhecimento do esforço despendido são fundamentais. Quando os alunos veem seu progresso e entendem o valor do seu trabalho, a aversão ao homework diminui significativamente. 

A chave é transformar o homework de uma obrigação temida em uma oportunidade valiosa de aprendizado e crescimento pessoal.

Algumas estratégias para superar estes desafios

Listamos abaixo algumas das principais estratégias que os alunos podem desenvolver para aumentar a adesão à prática de “ homework ”.

  • Entenda a Importância : Reconheça como o homework ajuda na fixação do conteúdo aprendido.
  • Tarefas Significativas: Assegure que o homework seja relevante e interessante.
  • Ambiente Organizado: Crie um espaço de estudo tranquilo e livre de distrações.
  • Gerenciamento de Tempo: Divida as tarefas em segmentos menores, estabelecendo um cronograma consistente.
  • Métodos de Estudo Eficientes: Experimente diferentes técnicas de estudo para encontrar a mais eficaz.
  • Feedback Positivo: Valorize o esforço e progresso, incentivando a continuidade.
  • Descanso Adequado: Mantenha um equilíbrio saudável entre estudo e tempo livre.
  • Busque Apoio: Não hesite em pedir ajuda a professores ou colegas quando necessário.

A plataforma Flexge representa uma abordagem inovadora no campo da educação, especialmente no que diz respeito à prática de homework .

No cerne da Metodologia Flexge, está a ideia de transformar a prática de homework de uma tarefa tediosa para uma experiência envolvente e eficaz. 

Aprenda a importância dos exercícios gamificados 

Um dos destaques da plataforma Flexge se dá através da incorporação de exercícios gamificados , essenciais para manter os alunos motivados e interessados. 

A gamificação aplica elementos de design de jogos em contextos educacionais, tornando o aprendizado mais interativo e divertido.

Os exercícios gamificados dentro da Plataforma Flexge não são apenas atraentes, mas também estrategicamente projetados para se alinharem ao momento síncrono.

Além disso, a Metodologia Flexge utiliza feedback de pronúncia instantâneo e recompensas para encorajar o progresso constante dos alunos. 

Essa abordagem positiva e estimulante ajuda a criar um ambiente de aprendizado onde os alunos se sentem apoiados e incentivados a superar desafios.

Em resumo, a Plataforma Flexge , com seu foco em exercícios gamificados, transforma a prática de homework em uma experiência mais envolvente e efetiva, contribuindo significativamente para o sucesso educacional dos alunos.

Observamos que o homework serve como uma ponte essencial entre o momento síncrono e assíncrono , permitindo que os alunos apliquem e pratiquem os conceitos aprendidos para a aquisição da língua inglesa. 

Essa prática não só reforça o conhecimento adquirido, mas também contribui para a sua consolidação na memória de longo prazo.

Além disso, o homework encoraja o desenvolvimento de habilidades de estudo independentes, importantes para o crescimento acadêmico e pessoal dos alunos. 

Essa autonomia cultivada na realização do homework é fundamental para a aprendizagem ao longo da vida, preparando os estudantes para desafios futuros em ambientes educacionais e profissionais.

Importante também é o papel do homework na identificação de áreas onde os alunos podem estar enfrentando dificuldades.

Beyoncé Is Riding Into Her Country Era. Here’s What to Know.

The singer said her upcoming album, “Cowboy Carter,” was the result of a deep dive into the history of country music. It will include cameos by Dolly Parton and Willie Nelson.

  • Share full article

Beyoncé smiles while wearing a white cowboy hat, black leather jacket with silver studs and a black string tie.

By Julia Jacobs

It started with a western-style Grammys outfit, complete with a cream-colored cowboy hat, studded string tie and matching Louis Vuitton jacket and skirt.

After a year and a half of Beyoncé’s “Renaissance,” the lauded dance music spectacular that included a world tour and a concert film, the awards show outfit signaled to fans that a new era was beginning. From the start, Beyoncé had described “Renaissance” as the first part of a three-act project, and fans wondered if the second act was on its way.

One week later, the pop star made herself abundantly clear, this time in a Verizon ad that aired during the Super Bowl.

“Drop the new music,” she said at the end of the intricately produced commercial, which featured the comic actor Tony Hale, a robot Beyoncé and the real version, who showed off 10 outfit changes.

She had our attention.

At her command, her team released a minute-long teaser video that culminated with a small crowd staring at a roadside billboard displaying another cowboy hat-wearing Beyoncé. Then came two new singles , “Texas Hold ’Em” and “16 Carriages,” filled with the kind of Southern twang and country instrumentation seldom heard in her catalog.

With the trail of promotional breadcrumbs — a succession of interviews with collaborators, billboard advertisements placed around the world, a chart-topping single — Beyoncé has returned to the more traditional album rollout, dropping teases and revelations before the big release, due March 29.

Here’s what we know.

‘This ain’t a Country album. This is a ‘Beyoncé’ album.’

Last week, Beyoncé released a statement on her website that gave some insight into the origins of the album, her eighth solo release, which is expected to tap into her Houston upbringing and reclaim the Black origins of country music.

“It was born out of an experience that I had years ago where I did not feel welcomed … and it was very clear that I wasn’t,” she said. “But, because of that experience, I did a deeper dive into the history of country music and studied our rich musical archive.”

It seemed like a possible reference to the 2016 Country Music Association Awards, when the singer performed “Daddy Lessons,” her first foray into country from the album “Lemonade,” alongside the Chicks, and a vocal segment of the country fandom questioned whether the performance belonged.

“The criticisms I faced when I first entered this genre forced me to propel past the limitations that were put on me,” she wrote in this introduction to the album, which is called “Cowboy Carter.”

The singer warned in her statement against boxing her into a specific genre.

“This ain’t a country album,” the statement said. “This is a ‘Beyoncé’ album.”

It has been in the works ‘for years.’

When Beyoncé first announced “Renaissance,” the singer called it the first installment of a three-part project recorded over three years during the pandemic, a period she described as being creatively fertile.

Fans began wondering about the genesis of “Cowboy Carter” when Beyoncé’s mother, Tina Knowles, commented on one of her daughter’s Instagram posts promoting the new singles, saying, “I have loved this record for years, now so happy that you guys get to hear.”

“Years?” some asked in response.

The theory that the music has been filed away for some time was supported by a line from “16 Carriages,” the swelling, cinematic ballad in which Beyoncé sings, “It’s been 38 summers and I’m not in my bed.” (Beyoncé is 42, so you do the math.)

In her statement, the singer clarified that the album had been over five years in the making.

With ‘Texas Hold ’Em,’ Beyoncé has already made history.

Less than two weeks after its release, “Texas Hold ’Em” topped Billboard's Hot Country Songs chart, making Beyoncé the first Black woman to do so.

A foot-stomping track that has inspired a dance trend on TikTok, “Texas Hold ’Em” evokes a hoedown animated by red cups, whiskey and boots with spurs, with Beyoncé singing: “I’ll be damned if I cannot dance with you/Come pour some liquor on me honey, too.”

The single’s success drew applause from some segments of country music — including from its queen , Dolly Parton — but also added fuel to a long-running debate over who is considered “country,” after a small country music station in Oklahoma initially refused a listener’s request to play the track.

‘Cowboy Carter’ will include a Dolly Parton cover and a Willie Nelson feature.

In an interview with The Knoxville News-Sentinel this month, Parton dropped a less-than-certain hint that Beyoncé covered her 1973 hit “Jolene” on “Cowboy Carter,” telling the newspaper, “I think she’s recorded ‘Jolene’ and I think it’s probably gonna be on her country album, which I’m very excited about that.”

Parton added that the artists have “sent messages back and forth through the years,” saying that she had been “touched” to learn that Beyoncé and her mother were fans.

The hint seemed to be confirmed on Wednesday, days before the album’s release, when Beyoncé posted to social media a track list of more than 25 songs that included “Jolene” and “Dolly P.” It was unclear whether Parton would feature on the album or if that was the title of a separate song, but the post also noted an appearance by Willie Nelson, titled “Smoke Hour.”

The track list contained other titles that referred to notable Black performers, including “The Linda Martell Show,” a nod to the first Black woman to perform at the Grand Ole Opry, and “Ya Ya,” a possible cover of the 1961 Lee Dorsey single .

The album features other respected country collaborators.

The album’s two singles credit Raphael Saadiq , the producer and writer who collaborated with Beyoncé on “Renaissance” and who is known for his work with R&B royalty, but the songs also list several musicians who are fixtures in the country-rock genre.

“16 Carriages” features the steel guitarist Robert Randolph, who is known for expanding the reach of a style of Black gospel called Sacred Steel through collaborations with Carlos Santana and Ozzy Osbourne, as well as while opening for the Dave Matthews Band.

Speaking with Rolling Stone last month, Randolph said that when he arrived in Los Angeles to record, he was told that he had been “handpicked” for the job.

“Beyoncé already had an idea of what she wanted to do,” Randolph said. “She wanted to do something with some playing, with some country fire. She said she liked the way I make my instrument sound like a singer.”

On “Texas Hold ’Em” the musician behind the banjo and viola is Rhiannon Giddens , a Grammy-winning performer who often uses her platform to educate fans about American music history, particularly the foundational influence of Black musicians.

In addition to artists well-known in Nashville, there are collaborations from well outside traditional country circles. Beyoncé and five other writers are credited with penning “Texas Hold ’Em,” including the Canadian alt-pop performers Nathan Ferraro, Megan Bülow, who performs as Bülow, and Elizabeth Lowell Boland. (In a video dancing to the song, posted and since deleted to TikTok, Boland, who performs as Lowell, included the caption, “Grew up in Calgary the country capital of Canada…. Rodeo’d my way to Hollywood!”)

Dave Hamelin, a producer and a member of the defunct indie rock band the Stills, is credited as a writer, producer, organist, guitarist and engineer on “16 Carriages.”

The pedal steel guitarist Justin Schipper called his involvement in the album “a bucket list moment for sure” in a post to Instagram .

It figures to challenge the country music establishment.

Giddens’s knowledge made her well positioned to respond when Beyoncé’s music release led naysayers to publicly question whether the singles should be counted on country charts.

“Whenever a Black artist puts out a country song the judgment, comments, and opinions come thick and fast,” Giddens wrote in a column for The Guardian . “‘That’s not real country!’ ‘That’s cultural appropriation.’ ‘She needs to stay in her lane.’”

Giddens responded by tracing Black musicians’ contributions to the creation of the genre, discussing the advent of the banjo by enslaved Black people in the Caribbean in the 1600s and the history of Black string band musicians.

“Let’s stop pretending that the outrage surrounding this latest single is about anything other than people trying to protect their nostalgia for a pure ethnically white tradition that never was,” she wrote.

There is a history of gate-keeping what should be deemed country, including a backlash among musicians in the 1970s when Olivia Newton-John (who was from Australia) was named female vocalist of the year by the Country Music Association, and a furor that led to the 2019 removal of the hip-hop artist Lil Nas X’s “Old Town Road” from Billboard’s country chart.

In her statement regarding the album, Beyoncé addressed her own experience of that strain of criticism, saying, “My hope is that years from now, the mention of an artist’s race, as it relates to releasing genres of music, will be irrelevant.”

With other Black performers like Mickey Guyton and Brittney Spencer gaining popularity and visibility within country music , “Cowboy Carter” may be positioned to light the match on the debate, said Francesca Royster, the author of “Black Country Music: Listening for Revolutions.”

“We’re in the midst of Black country artists, especially Black women, really looking backwards, trying to get us to change the historical narrative of who belongs in country music, who’s allowed to cross over and the racial dynamics of that,” Royster said.

Royster added that she is looking forward to seeing how Beyoncé’s legion of fans, known as the BeyHive, respond to challenges to the singer’s country authenticity.

Already, fans have organized an online system to request that country music stations play the album’s first two singles, helping to ensure they take their place in the country canon.

Purdue vs. Tennessee odds, score prediction, time: 2024 NCAA Tournament picks, Elite Eight bets by top model

Sportsline's model has made its march madness 2024 picks for the tennessee volunteers vs. purdue boilermakers in the elite eight on sunday.

do homework em

The top two seeds in the Midwest Region will meet in the Elite Eight on Sunday afternoon when No. 1 seed Purdue faces No. 2 seed Tennessee . The Boilermakers (32-4) punched their ticket to the Elite Eight with an 80-68 win over No. 5 seed Gonzaga in the Sweet 16 on Friday. They have already picked up one win over Tennessee this season, which came in a 71-67 final in the Maui Invitational. The Volunteers (27-8) are seeking their first Final Four appearance in school history after beating No. 3 seed Creighton on Friday.

Tipoff is set for 2:20 p.m. ET from Little Caesars Arena in Detroit. The Boilermakers are favored by 3.5 points in the latest Purdue vs. Tennessee odds, per SportsLine consensus, while the over/under for total points scored is 147.5. Before making any Tennessee vs. Purdue picks, be sure to see the college basketball predictions from the proven computer model at SportsLine . 

The model simulates every Div. I college basketball game 10,000 times. It entered the Sweet 16 round of the 2024 NCAA tournament on a 152-109 roll on all top-rated  college basketball picks  dating back to last season, returning more than $1,800 for $100 players. It also has a strong 32-21 (+890) record on top-rated spread picks this season, and it called 13 Sweet 16 teams this year. Anyone following it has seen huge returns.

Now, the model has set its sights on Purdue vs. Tennessee  and just locked in its March Madness predictions. You can  visit SportsLine now to see the model's picks . Here are several college basketball odds and betting lines  and trends for Tennessee vs. Purdue:

  • Purdue vs. Tennessee spread: Purdue -3.5
  • Purdue vs. Tennessee over/under: 147.5 points
  • Purdue vs. Tennessee money line: Purdue -167, Tennessee +140
  • PUR: The Boilermakers are 9-1 in neutral-site games this season. 
  • TENN: The Vols are 10-5 ATS in their last 15 games. 
  • Purdue vs. Tennessee picks: See picks at SportsLine

Why Purdue can cover

Purdue has stepped up against the best teams that it has faced this season, beating Gonzaga (twice), Marquette , Alabama , Arizona , Illinois (twice) and Wisconsin (twice). The Boilermakers have made multiple statements in the NCAA Tournament after losing in the first round as a No. 1 seed last season. They beat No. 8 seed Utah State by 39 points in the second round before covering the spread as 4.5-point favorites in their 80-68 win over Gonzaga in the Sweet 16.

Reigning Wooden Award winner Zach Edey has recorded five straight double-doubles, including 27 points and 14 rebounds against the Bulldogs on Friday. He is a matchup nightmare for any opponent, and Tennessee's top two big men fouled out across a combined 25 minutes when these teams met in November. The Boilermakers have plenty of firepower behind Edey as well, with three other starters averaging double digits.  See which team to back at SportsLine .

Why Tennessee can cover

Tennessee has improved since its narrow loss to Purdue in November, as point guard Zakai Zeigler was still working his way back from an ACL injury while transfer Dalton Knecht was trying to find his role on the team. Zeigler won the SEC Defensive Player of the Year award, and Knecht was named the SEC Player of the Year after leading the Vols to the regular-season title. They both came up with clutch performances in the Sweet 16 on Friday, combining for 42 points, 11 assists and 10 rebounds in the win over Creighton.

The Volunteers were able to get past the Bluejays without fifth-year senior starter Santiago Vescovi , who was out with the flu and could be available on Sunday. He is one of six players averaging at least 6.5 points per game for Tennessee, as the Vols are one of the deepest teams in the country. They have covered the spread in 10 of their last 15 games and they will be throwing everything they have at Edey in this rematch.  See which team to back at SportsLine . 

How to make Tennessee vs. Purdue picks

SportsLine's model is leaning Under on the total, projecting the teams to combine for 147 points. The model also says one side of the spread hits in well over 50% of simulations. You can only see the picks at SportsLine . 

So who wins Purdue vs. Tennessee, and which side of the spread hits well over 50% of the time? Visit SportsLine now to see which side of the Tennessee vs. Purdue spread you need to jump on, all from the model on a 152-109 roll on its top-rated college basketball picks , and find out.
