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.
