As part of her investigation of the Fairness Ideal, Tamara used the Tug of War routine to explore the topic of homework. Is it fair for students to have homework? Why or why not? Students described their reasons and identified other questions about the fairness of homework. After student thinking was revealed through this routine, Tamara decided to adjust the homework policy in the classroom to make it more in in line with the issues of fairness discussed with her students.
