Homework and extended learning

The purpose to homework is extending learning i.e., to build upon what a student has learned to develop a better understanding or practice skills that require time to develop. Podcasts like http://classictales.libsyn.com/ can help support students in English, on-line museums, science websites, all of these things can deepen a students understanding and spark a students interest much more than simply reading a chapter out of a book and answer the questions at the end of a chapter.
