Wow. I only got a chance to take a really good look at one blog (although at the last minute I browsed through a couple of others). I found an overwhelming number of thoughts/ideas/approaches to homework and whether or not to assign it to students. (Most of the posts were leaning toward very limited homework assignment and many to none at all). As an educator I have struggled with this question for years and it was great to read this blog. I could spend hours reading through the comments and digesting and thinking about what those people have to say. I am not sure I am any closer to knowing what is really the best approach for students. I continue to struggle with the homework/no homework question and if giving homework, the answers to why, how much, how to count it in the grade, what to do about students who don't do it, how to modify it, etc.
There were some interesting links to different articles that related to the homework issue and one of them was titled "Winners and Losers"
