Homework provides students with opportunities to consolidate their classroom learning, pattern behaviour for lifelong learning beyond the classroom and involve family members in their learning. The setting of homework takes into account the need for students to have a balanced lifestyle. This includes sufficient time for family, recreation and cultural pursuits.
Contemporary research suggests that small but frequent learning opportunities leads to faster acquisition of skills and knowledge. Encouraging our students to develop consistent study habits is one of the advantages of homework. As educators we are also aware of the importance of other activities in students’ lives and their individual working stamina. Homework like all other tasks should be adapted to individual student needs.
