This week we look at Asset #23, homework. According to the search Institute, “Youth are more likely to grow up healthy when they report doing at least one hour of homework every school day.” Homework is also one of the five Commitments to Learning Assets.
My first reaction to the word homework is help! I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, it is usually fussed about far longer than the time it actually takes to do it.
I’m always a believer in the fact that the view you have is based on how you frame it. So let’s take a look for that silver lining.
Okay, so the silver lining might actually be the grayer, more charcoal color behind the silver lining, but I digress. When last we spoke on this topic, I suggested a cozy location, quills at the ready and a stash of gum to entice.
This time around, I’m older and hopefully wiser and to be honest, I’ve just decided to look at homework through a youth frame. Now what if we decided to look at the adult version of homework as housework?
Aha…a light bulb moment! If my homework for the day was housework, my response might actually be similar to that of the youth.
