This paper examines ESL/EFL homework and homework design first through the exploration of two distinct approaches to homework and homework design and second through the presentation an explanation of the conclusions I reached regarding homework and homework design.
This paper is divided into five sections. The first section provides a working definition of homework and examines the different function of class time and homework time. In the second and third sections two approaches to ESL/EFL homework, traditional and non-traditional, are examined through the presentation and discussion of their constituent parts. The fourth section contains an elucidation of the conclusions I reached regarding homework and homework design. In the final section an example of the application of these concepts to an actual homework situation is presented.
