When a girl loses the class pet (and her homework), her excuses become increasingly silly and far-fetched, and her efforts to find the ferret are giggle-inducing. Fans of Guinea Dog will love this hilarious Jennings story.
Homework has always been a controversial issue since the beginning of education. Teachers have always considered it as one of the major educational tools; homework has been used in various forms. Doing homework has always been difficult for students. They have always suffered from doing homework especially in the initial years of their education. Even they sometimes ask their parents to do it for them. Gradually, they will face more problems. Homework has been given various names. Some call it the factor of activity, practice, internalization, and educational creativity; some others call it as disaster; a group consider it as the factor for instability of the family and the dispute between parents; some extremists call it an educational monster that ruins learners’ talents, tendencies and motivations in the era of the third wave; they consider it as a psychological torture for students.

Most of the research conducted about homework is based on adults' perspectives. This case study explored the perspectives of 5th and 6th grade students in comparison with 10 teachers' perceptions about homework. The author administered questionnaires and conducted in depth interviews using a stratified purposive sample and extreme case sampling; which educed the participants' perceptions and practices about homework. The students' represented 4 distinct groups: English Language Learners, general education, gifted and talented and special education. The teachers' instruct 5th and 6th grade. The results of the study indicate that students do not complete their homework because they find it too hard, boring, or they do not understand it. Interestingly, students think that worksheets are hard and boring. However, they are not against homework! This book should benefit teachers, parents, school administrators and staff developers. It would also help develop homework practices that would increase homework completion and student learning. This book brings out the voices of the students to the forefront. After all, they are the ones doing the homework. Listen to them!
Mass transit projects are developing everywhere, and specifically Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) systems are taking place in many countries. Funding such projects is a big issue for public entities. Value capture is an option. It is the process by which a portion or all increments in land value attributed to “community efforts” are recouped by the public sector. A research of several value capture mechanisms for funding transit projects is carried out throughout this report. More than 20 tools are described. These instruments can be divided in three groups: i) value capture from the developers, ii) value capture from the community and iii) value capture from “within”. Using the case of Colombian first BRT project (held in Bogota) I suggest value capture instruments and mechanisms to be implemented in the city as a way to help funding the infrastructure of the system. Lessons can be learned to find new sources of funding mass transit projects around the globe.
