The often contentious debate about the efficacy of homework persists today.
Kohn further contended that time devoted to homework could be better spent engaging in activities that truly interest students without exacerbating the achievement gap observed between students who have a lot of parental support versus those who do not (Kohn, 2006).

The Fitness Portfolio, maintained throughout the year, keeps record of fitness assessments in the mile run.
Students are required to maintain a 1” 3-ring folder and a clipboard.
These fitness homeworks are meant for the students to take home and complete.
These assignments are designed to ensure the students are exercising outside of school.
