The Homework Myth

The Homework Myth: Why Our Kids Get Too Much of a Bad Thing - Alfie Kohn This is a good book because it forces the reader to think about homework in a new way (unless one already subscribes to the view that homework really does not work well). The research is impressive and the arguments make sense. Every school, teacher and administrator should discuss the purpose of homework--and Kohn's perspective is important.
