The amount of homework we do wastes time, money, paper, and trees because it’s practically the exact same thing we did in class that day. Homework causes kid’s and teen’s frustration, tiredness, little time for other activities and possibly even a loss of interest in their education. It also keeps everyone up; it has kids and teens staying up until they finish it, the parents trying to help them and the teachers grading it. So, I think that homework is a waste and kids and teens should choose whether they want to do their homework for extra credit and practice or not. Homework dates back to at least the time of 50 BC or so.
Homework "The amount of homework is and has been just ridiculous, my child can't have a real life," one parent complained in a school district survey. "There have been nights where we have been up until 12 or 1am because my child is still working on some school assignment." Homework is stressful and has no positive outcomes: it never raises your grade, it has little educational worth, and it ties up teachers’ time is marking it down taking time away from more effective lessons. Homework should not be allowed in schools being that it is pointless, stresses students and has little educational value. Many students in the United States believe that homework is a waste of their time and does not positively affect their test grades.
In Elementary School when I was learning how to read and write I experience what felt like the worst days of my childhood. I will never forget those days because I felt worthless and didn’t believe that I would make it through school. My first grade teacher at Fultondale Elementary School started noticing that it was difficult for me to read and write, so she pulled me aside from all the other students to see what I was doing wrong. As this continued I felt more and more like an outcast to my classmates. I remember the teacher calling my parents one day to set up a conference about what strategies they could use at school and home to help me grasp the contents of both reading and writing.
How many of you as children thought homework was a waste of time? How about now as adults with your own children? I remember being a kid and wanting to get off school go home and relax, only to find out at the end of the day that my teacher was assigning two hours’ worth of homework after being in school for eight! First of all I felt completely devastated, second I felt very upset. I always thought it was completely unfair to have homework, I mean when will you get to be a kid right?
“Homework is dumb. Homework takes too much time. What’s the point of all of this homework?” This is the thought of many students today whenever it comes to doing homework. Many of them complain that they have jobs that may interfere with homework. Some of them use sports as a reason to get out of doing their homework, but several teachers offer time in class, and early morning tutoring for those students who are struggling or may not have time to do assignments away from school.
Zero self-control with medication will lead to consequences depending on the person’s thought process. Modern authors describe those with mental illness and challenges to an impossible recovery and the viewpoint of those without mental conditions. Therefore, the pressure mental illness does in a school environment. Many kids who develop a mental illness are misunderstood. The particular student who always turns in their homework on time begins to stop; according to one student, “my parents asked me why I had failed to produce any homework despite having sat at my desk for several hours” (Shields 43).
“I couldn’t make a bad impression if don’t talk to anyone,” I thought and so found a seat and quietly sat there till class started. With these already heart shattering experiences lodged in the back of my head, class abruptly started. “Hello class, my name is Mr.C and I will be your teacher!” said the tall, scary looking teacher who had just startled me.“Since today is the first day of school, and many of you are new we are going to do a name activity.” “I hate these,” I whispered under my breath, to scared to tell anyone. The game was boring and that is it. As the day progressed, I became accustomed to these painfully boring activities which happened in every single class, and worst of all I still couldn’t remember anyone's name.
The privileges of a private school are a lot different from an inner city school. When I began to volunteer at Baker I was shocked to discover that the students were not allowed to take books home to finish their school work. When it came time to read a book the teacher would distribute the books to the students, but then recollect them afterwards. At Denver Academy, the teachers purchase and distribute the books to the class and the students get to keep the books forever. I was about to find out how hard it is for these students to be motivated to attend school everyday when these kids are lacking a stable environment.
no excitement. regardless of what the teacher says, this is not a new challenge"(158). Rose shows how he felt abut his early high school as his teacher were supposed to be teaching exciting subject, but ruin subject by just reading out from the book. making it harder for any to really pay attention in class. " No wonder how so many student finally attribute their difficulties to something inborn, organic: That part of my brain just doesn 't work"(158).
