10-second review: Some considerations when giving homework.

Title: ‘Questioning Homework.” KP Haas. English Journal (November 2008), 14-15. A publication of the National Council of Teachers of English (NCTE).

Summary: How do students define homework? Purpose of homework? Meaningful? Students ready for the assignment? How much time needed to complete the homework? What feedback do we give on the homework? How grade the homework? Consequences for not completing?
