PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

“Homework: Overkill or Essential?” is an expository reading and writing unit developed for seventh grade and will take approximately two weeks of class time. Students will read and analyze claims made about the importance of homework in a variety of articles. After completing several pre-reading and reading strategies, the final writing assignment asks students to demonstrate understanding of the debate about homework, to take a position, and present it in the format of a persuasive letter to their school board. Although the unit is aligned to Common Core State Standards for 7th grade, this unit can be adapted for grades above or below grade seven. Supplemental video links are also available to support the teaching of this unit.
