For those who were around back when I wrote my anti-homework manifesto, lemme confess: I'm assigning homework now. Two problems every day — one tough, the other tougher — choose between them, same grade value for each.
Our block schedule inspired my not-quite-180° reversal, the fact that my kids go 48 hours between classes and need some kind of interim refresher. Kids are still cool 'cause I'm not indiscriminately assigning #1 – 30 (odd, of course). Parents still haven't made their minds up about it.
Regardless: you win, homework.
