There was a great deal of interest and discussion during the chat and, as Dave and Kelly explore, some different ideas about the role of homework in school. Participants had a variety of opinions about homework and Dave and Kelly explore different aspects of homework -What’s it’s purpose? Where does it fit? The chat covers a number of different aspects related to homework as Dave and Kelly examine this “hot” topic!
