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.

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

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 it is also read carefully by administrators, policymakers and parents. -Ken O'Connor, Education Consultant and Author
