However, the research found that in practice there are interdisciplinary homework goal deviation, difficult to choose the content, the form of a single and biased evaluation and other dilemmas, in order to better cultivate students' core literacy, we should grasp the goal of pointing to the core literacy, mastering the key points of content choice, enriching the form of homework and pay attention to the authenticity of the evaluation of the design, to give full play to the comprehensive function of cross-disciplinary homework nurturing, and to help realize the fundamental task of education to build morality and respect for the people.
