Recently, a Duke University professor, named Harris Cooper conducted a study about homework. His results showed that students who did homework did worse in school. The work caused low energy physically and mentally, and a negative perspective towards school itself. (Time) If homework is making children have an overload, they are not going to do good on the tests that matter. In addition, if kids do not like school, they will not try.
When I was little I never like school I didn’t like to read or anything that did with school. When I started school I was 9 years old in second grade when I first started to read. I took one year of Spanish because I didn’t know how to read in Spanish. My teacher that thought me to read was a good teacher because I learned to read less than a year he was really hard on me but I grateful that learned. I thought the worst about reading but after all it was something important because this is something that I am going to use in life.
So I always wait until the last minute to doing my homework and my homework quality is always very low and lead to bad grades. I made many attempts to avoid procrastination but the methods doesn’t seemed to work. So I turned to my teachers as well as my parents and friends for help and we discussed about several effective ways to avoid procrastination
In universities and high schools, students will study for hours only to know none of the material on the test. As a result, student 's blame their failing grades on teachers, their inability to comprehend, or badly written test questions. But, the real problem is that students are studying in a way that is ineffective and inefficient. "Simple but Not Easy" written by Charles Weaver "Ten Rules of Good and Bad Studying" by Barbara Oakley discuss the common mistakes students make when studying and how they can improve upon their studying. The articles "Simple but Not Easy" and "Ten Rules of Good and Bad Studying" are similar in the content and examples they give but contrasting in format.
English class made me feel empty-headed and lost. I never knew what was going on, and I also began not to care; However, when I was placed into Ms. Hightower 's class, everything changed! She gave me confidence in myself, my abilities, and helped me uncover intelligence I never knew I had. My freshman year of high school created my hate for English. My freshman class full of 15-year old 's were forced to read and write essays about the constitution and politics we knew and understood nothing about: It was the most tedious and doltish idea in the world.
The system neglected to provide the basic requirements to its learners, such as on time delivery of module material. According to Thorpe (as cited in Olivier, 2016) advances in technology in open distance learning institutions have resulted in move from traditional paper based correspondence, to correspondence in an online environment. Despites such advances students still face problems such a venue changes at last minute, tutorials sessions occurring after assignments were due, the cancellation contact session and lack of response from the universities’ administrative department regarding poor service delivery (Ogina & Mampane, 2013). Students who attended contact sessions also felt that the tutors did not adequately prepare for the session, and as a result repeated what was in the module material. Furthermore students felt that tutorials held were boring, did not help students to understand the module, and were considered to be of poor quality.
I think English is the most difficult thing in the world. Especially is grammar. My English teacher always said that the English grammar in my essay is totally wrong. I had tried to do some the exercise, but it is not work. I don’t know why my English is poor.
My performance on the listening test is very unstable, and similar things happened in previous EAP classes as well. I performed well in our first listening practice taken at the beginning of this semester. However, my performance of our midterm listening exam was unsatisfactory. Once I was under pressure, I felt distracted when I was listening. In the past midterm, I believed that I missed some important points at the beginning of the talk, which added me great difficulties to recognize the structure of the talk.
I also wondered why and finally I get my answer. I never forget when my students thought students from Sekolah Menengah Kebangsaan Gunung Rapat were arrogant and didn’t want to join us. My friends and I from different schools rejected and our teacher also bothered our studies. Besides that, I cannot pay attention for my studies and homework. Therefore, my STPM result is worst than my SPM result.
