An ongoing debate rages among many educators over whether or not homework is truly necessary in today's classrooms. In this webinar, Pernille Ripp discusses her own journey away from homework and the ups and downs of helping parents understand, as well as how to still promote time-management, responsibility, and practice. This webinar is meant primarily for elementary and middle-school teachers who want to move away from homework or who are curious about the journey, as well as for parents who would like to support their student in their quest to be homework free. Forms will be shared to help students prepare for conferences, and various modifications to their format will be discussed. While geared mainly towards elementary and middle-school teachers, other educators may find value in the discussion as well.
