Project leader: Joe Posante
On a Monday in November, 2010, Joe Posante, a middle school science teacher in Detroit, decided to abolish homework in his classes. His principal was not pleased, and eventually Joe was compelled to assign homework again. But it was never the same again, and Joe began a long quest to make homework meaningful, equitable, and fun. This journey, along with practical strategies and principles, will be the basis for a new book with the working title, Reinventing Homework. As a practice that is nearly universal but seldom enjoyed by either teachers or students, homework is an opportunity ripe for innovation, and this book will point the way. As drafts of the manuscript are developed, they will be shared with the iiE community for comment and input.
