I am on a teacher chat network, and most of the time the articles presented there are interesting if not actually helpful to teachers.

But today, one of them is about giving suggestions for homework for any age child.

Please look at this page.  There you will see how "learning" has morphed into what can only be termed as something ridiculous.

What a waste of time for students (of any age!)...

The suggestion to have students create a "wanted poster" for historical figures to help them remember who they are is simply ludicrous and disrespectful of the historical figure, in my opinion.
