Here's one thing though: I have found zero evidence for the "10 minutes per grade level" homework guideline on which this policy is based. And yes I have really tried. All the articles you find just link back to each other! It's one of those Mythical Unicorns of Education like the gosh-darned Cone of Retention ("you remember 10% of what you hear, 30% of what you see", etc.). That pyramid is an absolute piece of garbage -- even worse than multiple-intelligence theory.
Okay, I have to go get myself ready for school now. Happy Friday! We're gonna play the Coin Game in class today. (more on that later)
12 down, 8 to go for #flipblogs
