Homework 1Hour

Slide07 An hour or more for homework.  Does anyone remember teachers announcing that if there wasn’t any homework, to make some up by re-reading the chapter, or to run through the times table, or just open your book and study. Now grown up, it didn’t go away. If you have children of your own, you still have to make this time to stay on them to get it done AND be available for homework help.  Then of course you’ll run into something you barely remember and will have to research it before you can teach it. OR, if you bring work home with you, your still carving this time out for homework …and wouldn’t matter if you have children or not. Even still, this isn’t about the typical homework we are all familiar with.  Recently the collective is laying it on thick with making time for reading, puzzles, brain teasers maintain brain health. How long does it take you to do a crossword puzzle?  20 minutes?  How long does it take you to do a crossword by a different author? Then also, how tempting is the word Jumble and Sudoku right next to the crossword? Does it take you an hour to do all the puzzles in the daily paper?  When I started doing crossword puzzles, it’d take me all day.  (I’d put it down and go back to it.)  It didn’t take long before I could finish some puzzles inside an hour. If all this doesn’t matter to you in the grand scheme of things, it’s one more thing to think about when the collective brings it up and nags about another thing to do and that “nagging feeling” is what we are talking about here.  So for this exercise it’s an hour no matter what you’ve got going on. (if you caught it, I got turned around, so, yes, pink/travel time is missing here and mint/homework suddenly appeared in the last installment.  As of this posting we are at 17 out of 24. I view homework as more important than travel time, but travel time is one of those that happen because it is going to happen such as sleep, or eat, or getting ready, and as for cleaning … eventually you’ll get thirsty and have to clean a glass, or wash a shirt for something to wear.  Homework although more important is something that you have to remember and make the time to do it.  Hence the unintentional flip-flop. In the end when it is all stacked up, one way or another it doesn’t matter.  Follow this blog to find out why.  As of this posting we are at 17 out 24 hours.)
