The impact of structured interactive homework activities on attitudes toward homework

This thesis examines the impact that structured interactive homework activities
 have on attitudes toward homework. “Gator bags,” a form of literacy bags, were used
 as the structured interactive homework. Students took turns taking home a gator bag to
 experience with their families. The students had two opportunities each to take home a
 gator bag. The forms of data that were collected during this study include homework
 samples, student interviews, student attitude feedback, and additional feedback forms
 from both the parents and students. Each form of data collection was distributed twice
 during this project, once at the beginning of the year (prior to the initiation of the gator
 bag project), and once at the end, after students and families had experienced the gator
 bags. In each of the gator bags there were feedback forms for students and their families
 to fill out after they completed each gator bag. Grounded theory was used to analyze the
 data from which the conclusions of this research were drawn. The attitude of the students
