I thought the findings from the study were illuminating, and agree -- I think the dynamic they discuss is quite real. It made me wonder both about practical considerations for how to assign homework but also about educator PD and learning. i.e. what conditions would need to exist for a teacher team to have a real conversation about how something like this might be playing out in their classrooms and what they might do about it.

Great summary, and fascinating history, too. How do you respond when students don't complete homework?

I"m not complaining, but didn't you do a big writeup on homework research already? Or is this a reprint?

Interesting piece! The historical context was especially fascinating.

I wondered if you’d also seen the study from Calarco et al from last year. https://journals.sagepub.com/doi/abs/10.3102/0013189X221111337?journalCode=edra
