Foro 4 homework

  1. 1. UNIVERSIDAD LATINOAMERICANA DE CIENCIA Y TECNOLOGIA<br />School of Education<br />Grade: Professor Carlos Tánchez Newspaper Contribution 4II Quarter, 2010<br />Student: Paula Garro Ramírez<br />Group: English II<br />Task: Write a short paragraph in which you mention the advantages and disadvantages of homework assignments. In addition, what changes would you suggest to traditional homework in order to make this more interesting, useful and effective?<br />I am totally in favor with the homework that generates a significant learning. There are many cases where teachers send homework with a specific format only because is a school requirement. In these cases the teachers know their students do not learn. These are the kind of homework that should not exist. They have no sense.<br />Here at ULACIT, properly in my career, Psychology, I learned a new pattern of homework. They are called case study. In my opinion are extremely effective. Students must apply knowledge to real life cases. It must do interviews, workshops, live the experience physically. We should always do the research to know the theory but the real task is to apply this theory to real situations. <br />For example, in the case of the English course, these tasks it could be to practice conversation applying the vocabulary with exchange students. Those conversations can be recorded with the computer, cameras, using the technology we have today. The goal is to have evidence that the homework was performed.<br />The difference between the traditional homework and case studies is through the experience generated a significant learning. Applying theory to practice people is using more senses and this creates more communication in the brain. <br />It is easier to remember what is lived because it is “archived” in several areas of the brain. This do not happen when you “copy-paste” doing homework.<br /> <br />
