Make High School Great Again Most adults remember high school as the best years of their lives; however, this is not the reality for students today. The majority of teenagers would agree that high school is currently dreadful, mainly due to the outrageous bulk of homework they receive each night. Homework is now consuming students’ lives, leaving no free time to have fun, attend extracurricular events, sports games etc. Homework is becoming a popular public debate because of the adverse effects it has on America’s teens. In fact, many studies have proven that abolishing homework has a positive outcome.
The consistent completion of homework contributes significantly to a student’s ability to retain key concepts learned in class, leading to higher achievement in school overall. “In 2006, a Duke University research team led by psychologist and education head Harris Cooper reviewed more than sixty studies conducted between 1987 and 2003. The team found a positive correlation between homework and student achievement with few exceptions” (Cooper, Pondiscio). The fact that the distinguished researchers found such conclusive results in favor of homework exemplifies the argument against a homework ban. Personally, I have noticed a strong correlation between thoroughly and mindfully completing my homework assignments and improved grades in my classes.
Homework helps make sure students can understand the concept without the teacher having to lead them through the steps. In a previous meta-study in 1989 Duke university found that high schoolers have much to gain from doing their homework, and that those that do, do their homework outperform those that don 't by 69%. Andrea Townsend argues that she wouldn’t get through as much content in a year if she didn 't set it. She also states that hands on is the best way to learn, however, that means if she does hands on activities in class then
Now some people do it right when they get home but most kids like Prescott can 't do it right away because they have to relax because they “are tired” from the big day of school. School is like a bucket filled of work and stress being dumped onto you and you can 't do anything about it. On the other hand kids may have lots of activities like sports or something else to do with the family and it can get hard to fit all of the activities they have to do with school work. Lots of kids everywhere have homework and lot of people get stressed over it. The homework you have is a lot of times a grade and if you don 't get it done because of other activities you had to do you can be punished.
Is homework becoming too much? Every day students spend hours upon hours doing homework every night and stressing out if they aren't able to finish it. The first form of homework was given as a punishment to the kids that would act up in class. The teacher would give them extra school work to take home and do instead of being able to go home relax and have fun. Although homework can help increase understanding of new topics this kind of practice is not helping students because it can interfere with sleeping, stresses kids and teenagers out and can cause depression, and even make a kid give up on school altogether.
Homework at that time generally acted as a form of punishment for students. But what that teacher did not know as he had given student a punishment that would eventually help them in the long run. While some students still believe homework stands as a punishment, they do not know, they are actually stretching their brains. Everytime u learn anything new, brain neurons are forming new neurons. Those new neurons are the skills you have learned.
They are always doing homework their attention is focused on homework. It 's not acceptable, especially when they have 8 hours of school for five days and do a lot of work there. And they think practical practice is more useful at teaching them things how they make every think with themselves. on the other hand some people think homework is very necessiry and practice for kids about what they are learning at school and they believe that if it was banned we would see a rise in the number of students failing their tests.and it doesn’t take much time and help kids for organize their times and responsibility. peoples think that practical practice not useful as not all kids can do the practical test at the same level and it will different from children to children .
The more educated I am in my subjects of interest, the more successful I will be in my future career. I feel that homework impedes my ability to have greater success in the subjects that interest me. Homework has a negative effect on the sleep pattern of students. It isn’t uncommon for students to push homework off until the last minute. Who wants to feel like they are back at school the minute they get home?
The impact of homework has on students Homework is a major part of our school life. Teachers always tell you to hand in your homework on time or else you will face different consequences. After spending eight hours studying at school, all you want to do at home is relax, spending time with your family, hanging out with your friends, doing your chores, etc. With homework, you won’t have enough time to do any of those. Homework takes up a lot of your time, and some of us have to go to academy so we won’t even have enough time to do it.
“The beginnings are sometimes scary, endings are usually sad, but it’s the middle that counts most” That is true for a lot of things in everyday life, like starting school. Many young people see going to school as a chore and only go because they absolutely have to, while some will even skip school because they see it as boring and unnecessary. However, going to school is incredibly important for your career, future education, social and communication skills. When I first got to high school everything was strange, scary and new, for the first time there were new people to meet as well as new teachers. There was now also a lot more work and homework.
