Editorial Reviews

Review

Starr Sackstein and Connie Hamilton have assembled a book full of great answers to the question, "How can we make homework engaging and meaningful?"  The "hacks" they offer are practical and authentic, and resonate for teachers at every grade level. Theirs tep-by-step directions move readers from theory to action. Best of all, the advice in this book applies to in-school learning, too!
Dr. Doug Fisher and Dr. Nancy Frey, Professors at SDSU, Authors, and Researchers


Hacking Homework is a must read for teachers - and parents. It is not just another book advocating the elimination of homework -it is a book in which the authors describe ten hacks/fixes that provide alternatives to traditional homework that make homework about learning not compliance.  All of the hacks provide sensible and practical ways in which teachers - and parents - can support learning outside school hours. I hope this book finds its way into the professional library of every classroom teacher, and that is also read carefully by administrators,policy makers and parents.
Ken O'Connor,Educational Consultant and Author


A must read for all educators, Hacking Homework provides educators the insight they need to re-think the homework they are assigning. In addition, educators have applicable hacks to ensure they are moving their classrooms in the right direction. Educators have been having the homework debate for years, finally a book comes along that can move teachers in a direction of best practices that aligns with the research. 
Craig Vroom,Principal, Hilliard Weaver Middle School. Hilliard City School District. Ohio

Starr and Connie believe that shaking up our homework policy is one of the best decisions they have ever made for kids. I agree! Hacking Homework shows how teachers and parents can take the stress out of homework and focus on what really matters. They emphasize why family time is simply too precious to continue the homework policy of handing out mundane assignments. Hacking Homework provides multiple alternatives to"homework" that bridges the gap between play and learning.  
Barbara Bray, Author, Co-founder of Personalize Learning, LLC, and Owner/Founder of My eCoach and Rethinking Learning

Experienced educators Starr Sackstein and Connie Hamilton provide a wealth of practical ideas to help teachers reflect and improve how they think about, and implement, homework practices.  I can't think of a better resource out there dealing with this issue, and it's a challenging one for all of us in the classroom.
Larry Ferlazzo, HighSchool Teacher and Author

Sackstein and Hamilton provide a sound game plan to monumentally change learning cultures during and outside of the school day. Personal anecdotes from educators in the field provide a glimpse into the headaches of homework and how teachers can make learning relevant.This book will change your outlook on homework and improve your practice as an educator.
Brad Currie, Founding Partner of Evolving Educators
