Teach it, don't assign it!

What have you got to lose?


"One of life's most painful moments comes when we must admit that we didn't do our homework, that we are not prepared." - Merlin Olsen

Decrease the homework load!

We all get homework. All of us. Sometimes it's necessary, sometimes it's unnecessary. But how much is too much? These days, we are barraged with a torrent of homework and projects that take up a HUGE amount of time, and sometimes that time spills into the time we should be sleeping by.

Why should teachers decrease the load?

  • Takes time off of the time the spend grading
  • Will be able to answer more questions in class as opposed to after school
  • Decreases amount of procrastination
  • Will help kids get more sleep
