My Daughter’s Homework is Killing Me

Teaching: you’re doing it wrong (in my opinion). When I was in grade school, I was fortunate enough to have teachers that made sure we were understanding the material and not just memorizing facts. 

Here’s my stance on homework: Homework is beneficial in small amounts, especially for subjects with complex concepts, like math and foreign languages. Teachers should give a small amount of homework to aid in their students’ understanding of the concepts (and for “free points”). Subjects like math take a lot of practice before they become easy.
