Reading Rockets covers Homework HotSheet

Posted on September 8, 2011

Under the headline "What does good homework look like?," Reading Rockets columnist Joanne Meier featured the TeachingLD HotSheet on homework by Kathy Ruhl and Charlie Hughes on 7 September 2011. Here is how the entry starts:

Teachers give homework just about every night of the week. A good homework assignment can provide students with practice with a skill already taught, can prepare students for an upcoming test, and can extend a project or topic under study. A poorly designed homework assignment can bring tears and frustration and a lost opportunity to build a bridge between what's being taught in school and talked about at home.

Readers can review the entire column in its original form. It's wonderfully flattering to have the recognition of this fine work by our TLD authors.
