GlobalEdSsChat January 2020: Do Your Homework!?


K-12 Tweet and Talk*:       Tuesday January 14th, 1:00PM – 1:30PM EST

K-12 Slow Chat:                   All month long!

If you are new to #GlobalEdSsChat, Start Here!
Detailed information about our chats can be found here.


1. Do you think homework is important? Why or why not?

2. How has homework affected you (positively and/or negatively)? Explain

3. What alternatives to homework can you suggest?

4. Many say homework teaches responsibility. Do you agree with this? Explain.

5. What type of homework do you enjoy the most/learn the most from?

*The same 5 questions will be used for the Slow Chat all month long. We recommend classes spend time answering the questions ahead of time so time during the chat can be spent liking tweets, retweeting, quoting tweets in reply, and collaborating with others.
