Homework

Terrible teacher confession: I hate homework.  I hate giving it; I hate grading it; I hate chasing after students trying to get it back; and I hate reproducing it so they can MAYBE get a decent letter grade IF they make it up.  The whole process is just wrong.  It’s a waste of everyone’s time. 

I wonder what would happen if I didn’t assign it.  Would the kids notice?  Would they care?  What about their parents? 

I think I’ll climb off the roller coaster this week and assign only reading and AR testing.  While nothing will happen, at least I won’t have to chase my tail for it.

    I hate homework too. Today I had a math worksheet turned in. The parent had corrected it and their son had missed almost all of them. They didn’t fix the mistakes. UGH!!!
