Too Much Homework is Bad for Kids - To much homework may cause more harm than good. In my sophomore year being a student-athlete was a huge challenge. I would drown in homework every single night after getting home from basketball practice at 5. I would stay up until 1 a.m doing all my homework, when I would get tired I would plead with my sister to help me finish my homework I had left to do. I became stressed with 7 hours of school and then 2 hours of basketball practice and then spending all night working on my assignments. I would go to school exhausted and in fear of how much homework I would receive that day....   [tags: Excessive Homework]

Teachers Assign Too Much Homework - ... “Homework makes it so I can’t spend time with my kids and family and I resent it” (qtd. in Students Should Get). Most parents just have to accept homework but “parents consistently report that it intrudes on family life.” For some students, it’s not just the children that have to work on the after-school problems, the mom and dad end up having to be “homework monitors.” Fathers and mothers often feel bad when they have to push their children every night to do homework (TEACHERS). “You end up ruining the relationship that you have with your kid” (qtd....   [tags: Homework Essays]

A Misinformed Society Must Look Closer at Homework - ... Remarkably, the scores then declined for those who did forty-five minutes, then declined again for those who did an hour or more!... In twelfth grade, the scores were about the same regardless of whether students did only fifteen minutes or more than an hour. Results on the reading test, too, provided no compelling evidence that homework helped” (“The Homework Myth” 41). People must be wondering what is wrong with this homework that students are doing if it doesn’t help. At its core, there’s no getting around the fact that most homework that is assigned is “empty work.” Natalie Wolchover writes for the Huffington Post, "...According to Gerald LeTendre of Pennsylvania State University, he...   [tags: educatioin system, students, homework substitute]

Should Homework be Abolished? - Homework is a topic that almost everyone fights about, from educators to students to parents. According to Marzano, during the first couple decades of the twentieth century, teachers believed that homework helped students become more disciplined, but by 1940 homework was thought to interfere with the home life of students (Marzano, 2007, p.74). That trend goes back and forth until the 1980s when people started to have varying opinions (Marzano, 2007, p.74). The definition of homework is activities or assignments that a teacher gives a student that should be completed at home (Landing-Corretjer, 2009, p.14)....   [tags: Educators, Students, Parents, Education]

The Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders - Agoraphobia is derived from the Greek words agora, meaning “gathering place” or “assembly” which was used to describe a city’s marketplace, and phobia meaning “fear.” It literally means "fear of the marketplace." Carl Westphal first coined the term “agoraphobia” in 1871 to describe people who were afraid of large open spaces. Since then, the definition of agoraphobia has been modified and continues to develop as more research is done.
