Rank #19: E13S3 (Back To School)-Rethinking Homework: An Interview With Math Coach Aimee Buchanan

Podcast cover
Read more

Meet Aimee. She's an instructional math coach who has opened the door to homework changes in our elementary school section. Finding herself at a crossroads when her students grew frustrated and anxious around their math homework (all while losing valuable play and family time), Aimee began to ponder the value of traditional homework. She started to read a growing body of research that disproved the idea that homework has academic benefits in the early grades. Join us in a provocative conversation about the trials and tribulations of homework, and alternative activities to do instead that promote growth and learning.

A few notes: We were recording on site at our school, and, as luck would have it, there was construction going on. So, you might hear a little bit of background sounds from time to time because hey, that's what happens when you record at a school!

Also, Around 36 minutes into the interview the AC kicked on by itself. Sorry.

Show Notes:

0:00 Introduction 0:55 Meeting Aimee 6:29 Aimee explains the backstory to her opening up the conversation on homework with our elementary section. 25:31 The research behind no homework 28:57 TIIMS study findings 35:52 Some of the different kinds of homework teachers at our school are given, and some of the difficulties we have encountered. 39:45 Parent feedback about the new homework practices at our school 44:46 Activities parents can do at home with their children instead of traditional homework. 46:52 Bonding through TV 51:30 Knitting and the math mind 56:37 Aimee's advice to teachers looking to revamp the homework they give

Resources

The Case Against Homework: Sarah Bennett and Nancy Kalish http://www.thecaseagainsthomework.com/

Tiims (International Data): Research study (international ratings). They went into math classrooms and studied students in math for 45 minutes and those in class for an hour and a half. Tiims found that the amount of on-task time (or engagement) in the math classroom, the more students achieved. Therefore, the amount of time we have is not as important as the time students spent engaged in math (as opposed to teacher "teaching", or lecture time; more teaching time did not increase student learning).

     The beginning of the school year is such a special time of year. Teachers excitedly get their classrooms set up, organized, and decorated. There is a buzz of excitement and energy around school. Expectations are high, and hope lingers in the air like a cool breeze on a hot day. Simply put, there is a special kind of feeling that ensues during this time of year, and it's the kind of feeling one would like to bottle up and enjoy at a later time (you know, for when we're exhausted and in need of a "pick-me-up"). In this episode, I explore 6 key ideas to keep in mind as you start the new school year. These ideas will help us not only begin the school year positively, but to maintain that positivity during the school year. Are you ready to be a positive force at your school?
