This is an excerpt of Dr. Corretjer's book available through Amazon.com in paperback and Kindle editions. The author researched students in fifth and sixth grades regarding their perceptions about homework. Dr. Corretjer surveyed and interviewed students in general education, in gifted and talented programs, English Language Learners and students in Special Education programs from different ethnic and social backgrounds. The results of this study are critical in the understanding of the common practice of homework and how it truly affects student achievement.
Previous research in this area has been focused on the adults' perspective of homework. It is about time that we listen to the students, after all they are the ones who have to do homework. Listen to them! You will be surprised to find out they are not against homework!
