Free On-Demand ASCD Archived Webinar with Cathy Vatterott
Duration: 1 hour, 1 minute
K–12 homework practices have continued to evolve since the first edition of Rethinking Homework: Best Practices That Support Diverse Needs was published in 2009. In this webinar, author Cathy Vatterott examines the evolution of homework since then and how concerns about equity and academic stress have led to increased parent activism as well as changes in K–12 homework policies.
Learn what the most recent research, discussed in the new second edition of the book, reveals about homework effectiveness, what high-quality homework looks like, and how standards-based learning and technology are changing the role of homework in learning. Trends in the grading of homework and homework support programs will also be discussed.
