Homework….

January 14, 2009

Within Saline Area Schools we often discuss the “homework” issue.  Last year, I wrote a blog post about it as I tried to share my thoughts on the issue.  Almost a year later, my feelings remain largely the same.  I am however pleased to see that Ms. McKie and Mr. Stimac are trying to address the issue at the 5th and 6th grade level where it seems to become an issue.

On Monday, January 26th at 7:00pm in the Heritage Media Center there will be a special presentation for parents called, “Homework without Tears”.  The program is intended to share strategies to reduce the stress and anxiety of homework for both parents and students.

Please contact Ms. McKie at mckiej@saline.k12.mi.us for more information.

    Scot,

    By taking a long-term perspective on the issue, the appropriate setting to address changes in homework levels is at the Heritage or Middle school level. Students will be more likely to adapt to homework demands at that level, and, hopefully, carry those homework skills forward into high school, and beyond.
