Homework is often controversial, especially in the lower grades. This paper begins by surveying research pertaining to homework in elementary school and identifying the goals and objectives of the homework process. The discussion of the literature covers: (1) views on homework through the 20th century; (2) a need for homework policies; (3) advantages of homework; (4) disadvantages of homework; (5) effects of homework at each grade level; (6) comparison of the United States to other countries; and (7) making homework work. The paper next presents ideas for teachers, parents, and students regarding homework, including a recommended homework policy, a parents' checklist for monitoring study, and sample letter to parents about homework. The paper then describes a survey about homework habits administered to 40 parents and 60 students in second grade. Findings indicated that 83 percent of parents like very much that their children get homework, and 78 percent of students also enjoy homework. Students indicated a belief that by doing homework, they will become smarter. (Contains 26 references.) (EV)
