ABSTRACT
This article describes the ways in which homework in the subject of Spanish travels from classrooms to students’ homes in first and second grade. The research is based on an ethnographic perspective that can show how homework is an object of school culture, which is constructed and re-constructed by educational actors, leading to various appropriations of homework according to the social networks and relationships involved as it navigates between school and home. Therefore, homework can also be viewed as a series of cultural practices that simultaneously enable and impeded the links between school and family. The manner in which homework navigates will vary depending on school and family contexts. Family members responsible for picking up and supporting children are a major point of reference, as are the diverse cultural practices through which the teachers make explicit the homework and the supports used for its transit. This article is published in Spanish.
