Hausaufgaben machen die Klugen klüger – und die Dummen dümmer
Wenn Lehrer gar keine Hausaufgaben kontrollieren, haben die Schüler überhaupt keinen Anreiz, diese selbst wichtig zu nehmen. Der Lerneffekt ist dann gleich null.

Bei den Hausaufgaben ist es ähnlich wie beim sogenannten selbstgesteuerten Lernen, die begabten Schüler haben keine Probleme damit und sind zum selbständigen Arbeiten in der Lage, diejenigen aber, die Hausaufgaben am nötigsten hätten, sind dazu gar nicht in der Lage, weil sie viel zu unselbständig sind.

Temele îi fac pe deștepți mai deștepți – și pe proști mai proști
Dacă profesorii nu controleaza temele, elevii își pierd imboldul de a le lua în serios. Efectul educativ este zero.

La teme este la fel ca la învățatul autonom, elevii pricepuți nu au probleme și pot lucra singuri, in schimb cei care au nevoia cea mai mare de teme, nu le pot face, pentru că nu sunt deloc autonomi.

There is no homework in Finland
Circulă de ceva vreme pe internet un infografic despre învățământul finlandez, intitulat There is no homework in Finland. Dar în documentarul The Finland Phenomenon se spune că primesc 3-4 ore de teme pe săptămână în clasa a 8-a și se așteaptă ca volumul să crească în clasele superioare (minutul 30). Ceea ce-i puțin, dar nu deloc.
Am căutat sursa infograficului și am găsit prima sa apariție aici (într-adevăr, graficul este semnat Online Classes). Apare apoi puțin modificat aici și apoi aici. Informația neverificată este transmisă mai departe cu entuziasm. Câțiva comentatori finlandezi încearcă să lămurească lucrurile: “As a Finnish person I can tell that we do have homework in Finland, even on the first grade and forward.” (Annoj) și “I have lived in Finland all my life and I can tell you something for a fact: We DO have homework, and a lot of it” (Jarmo Väisänen). Userul Tufteman găsește și mai multe probleme legate de informațiile prezentate. Dar până la urmă infograficul ajunge să circule liber și necorectat pe rețelele sociale. Toată lumea se bucură că în Finlanda nu se dau teme.

Hateful homework – but why we need it
It is very damaging in education if tasks are constantly assigned which are not carried out. That demoralises the children in a quite terrible way.
It becomes “demoralising” when the teacher fails to ensure that the homework is then also actually done. An uncomfortable and annoying task which the task-giver however has to face if her or she is not to loose moral authority.

Healthy Homework Guidelines: A New Vision for Homework
Together we can transform homework and encourage schools nationwide to reexamine and reimagine homework practices to better support student engagement, health and learning with healthy homework guidelines.

“Race to Nowhere” Ignites Change
Research studying the correlation between homework and academic achievement consistently reveals a surprising fact: Most homework doesn’t increase learning, raise test scores, or prepare students for academic success.
On the contrary, homework often emphasizes performance at the cost of sleep, friendship, family time, play, physical activity, and health. And it contributes to an epidemic of sedentary and anxious young Americans ill-prepared for the 21st century.

Race to Nowhere (Trailer)
Featuring the heartbreaking stories of young people across the country who have been pushed to the brink, educators who are burned out and worried that students aren’t developing the skills they need, and parents who are trying to do what’s best for their kids, Race to Nowhere points to the silent epidemic in our schools: cheating has become commonplace, students have become disengaged, stress-related illness, depression and burnout are rampant, and young people arrive at college and the workplace unprepared and uninspired.

My Daughter’s Homework Is Killing Me
One assignment had her calculating the area and perimeter of a series of shapes so complex that my wife, who trained as an architect in the Netherlands, spent half an hour on it before coming up with the right answers. The problem was not the complexity of the work, it was the amount of calculating required. The measurements included numbers like 78 13/64, and all this multiplying and dividing was to be done without a calculator.
