TYPES OF EVIDENCE •Data from Personal Experience •Data from Observation of Field Experience •Data from Interviews, Questionnaires, Surveys •Data from Library or Internet Research •Testimony •Statistical Data •Hypothetical Examples, Cases, and Scenarios •Reasoned Sequence of Ideas In an informal survey of my fellow students, 80% of Shorewood students said that homework decreases their love of learning.

TYPES OF EVIDENCE •Data from Personal Experience •Data from Observation of Field Experience •Data from Interviews, Questionnaires, Surveys •Data from Library or Internet Research •Testimony •Statistical Data •Hypothetical Examples, Cases, and Scenarios •Reasoned Sequence of Ideas The PEW research center interviewed the top researchers in education and asked them whether homework is unfair to students who come from homes with lower incomes. 85% of them said it was.

TYPES OF EVIDENCE •Data from Personal Experience •Data from Observation of Field Experience •Data from Interviews, Questionnaires, Surveys •Data from Library or Internet Research •Testimony •Statistical Data •Hypothetical Examples, Cases, and Scenarios •Reasoned Sequence of Ideas According to the Rand Corporation, in the last 20 years, homework has increased in the lower grade levels, and this increase is associated with neutral (and sometimes negative) effects on student achievement.

TYPES OF EVIDENCE •Data from Personal Experience •Data from Observation of Field Experience •Data from Interviews, Questionnaires, Surveys •Data from Library or Internet Research •Testimony •Statistical Data •Hypothetical Examples, Cases, and Scenarios •Reasoned Sequence of Ideas Tthe amount of homework the average American 10th grader is assigned has not changed dramatically over time. In 1982, it was just under one hour per day; in 2000, the amount was just a few minutes less.

TYPES OF EVIDENCE •Data from Personal Experience •Data from Observation of Field Experience •Data from Interviews, Questionnaires, Surveys •Data from Library or Internet Research •Testimony •Statistical Data •Hypothetical Examples, Cases, and Scenarios •Reasoned Sequence of Ideas Imagine what would happen if teachers stopped giving homework. Students would be free to pursue the projects that interested them--writing poetry, rebuilding cars, designing clothes, learning new languages.
