Learning outside the classroom is being reimagined, and student engagement is better than ever. World-renowned author/educator Starr Sackstein has changed how teachers around the world look at traditional grades. Now she’s teaming with veteran educator, curriculum director, and national presenter Connie Hamilton to bring you 10 powerful strategies for teachers and parents that promise to inspire independent learning at home, without punishments or low grades.
“Starr Sackstein and Connie Hamilton have assembled a book full of great answers to the question, ‘How can we make homework engaging and meaningful?’ ” — Doug Fisher and Nancy Frey, Authors and Presenters
I am so glad I purchased this book. I have been struggling with the homework issue for my students. This book provides helpful strategies to use with parents and administrators and all involved in the education of our students. Learning can happen in many places, not just the classroom. Thank you for putting it together and getting guest educators submit their ideas too.
Hacking Homework is a milestone and I believe it will sweep the country. Homework was never what it should be and now it can be. Kids learn so much more and faster when the material is at their level and they can participate, besides it being fun. This should be required reading for all teachers and administrators. Starr and Connie did a superb job of laying this book out and explaining, in detail, how each section works. It could not be clearer. If it isn't yet, it should be on the 'best seller' list.
