Homework is not new. Since the mid-nineteenth century it has been used to supplement the school curriculul, moving in and out of fashion according to th political climate. Pupils do not enjoy doing homework, but they believe that is important in helping them do well at school. What is the evidence for the effectiveness of homework?
Susan Hallam's extensive review of the literature on homework starts with a brief overview of the history, nature and purpose of homework and then reviews research on its effect on pupils'attainment. She then describes the findings of studies that compare homework, and international and UK studies looking at the relationship between time spent on homework and attainment. Further chapters explore different types of homework and their effects and teachers', pupils' and parents' perspectives on homework. The final chapter considers the future of homework, but schools must take the lead in redefining the homework agenda and putting student learning at it centre.
Susan Hallam is Reader in Education in the School of Lifelong Education and International Development, Institute of Education, University of London.
