Homework Done Right: Powerful Learning in Real-Life Situations

"Homework Done Right takes a fresh look at how to create homework assignments that students will be motivated to complete, not based on the grade alone, but on the real-life applications of the assignments. I have already begun tweaking existing assignments to make them more intellectually rewarding for my students!"
—Jessica Purcell, Science Teacher
South Fargo High School, Fargo, ND

"This book shows readers exactly why meaningful homework is best for students and provides teachers with answers to those perennial student questions: ′Why do we need to know that?′ and ′When am I ever going to use this?′"
—Tim Tharrington, Sixth-Grade English teacher
Wakefield Middle School, Raleigh, NC
