One topic that has been coming up during the community forums about the potential of a later start time for Burlington High School next year is homework. With this in mind, I thought I would share a clip from last week’s Innovator’s Mindset episode with Alice Keeler. Alice is a well-known math teacher and presenter from California who has changed her practice in regards to assigning homework to students.
In the clip, Alice also mentions John Hattie’s research on homework. Hattie is the Director of the Melbourne Educational Research Institute. His research has gotten a lot of attention since the publication of his Visible Learning meta-study. I encourage you to watch Alice’s entire interview from last week and also to delve into the research that Hattie has done on the topic of homework.
