Please put your opinions about President Hollande's proposal aside and ask yourself, what would you do if homework was banned?
Would you quit teaching because it was now impossible to teach? Would you continue teaching with the understanding that you will be a less effective teacher? Would you respond to this "new normal" and develop effective ways to teach your students?
I want to hear what you think? And if you are not a teacher, I ask that you pass this question along to teachers you know and ask them to tell me what they think? Please leave a comment.
