Many people may have heard their parents telling them that, when they are doing homework they must go into a quiet environment to study. This is a discussion stating negative and positive attributes towards the topic ‘is it ok to watch television while doing homework’. Most people find it much easier to watch Television while doing homework because their minds work better by multitasking. It has been scientifically shown that emotional needs where satisfied the most by those who multitask. Even know, people have knowledge on that by multitasking it actually hurts the performance but they do it anyway for personal benefits.
Imagine a world where teens get more time to do homework, have less stress, and have higher grades. That is what it would be like if teens didn't multitask. All over the world teens think they can effectively multitask, but reality is they can not. Multitasking for teens is texting or listening to music while studying. Teens cannot effectively multitask because it takes them way more time to do their homework when they multitask, teenagers get lower grades due to sending dozen texts messages while studying, and their brains can’t fully focus on one task and/or they are not aware of their surroundings.
Homework stress out students. Sometimes students may have a big workload, or they have a hard time understanding it. Some students have more work to complete so there is a greater likelihood for them to have more stress . Those things can cause stress for students. In an article I read it says “Not surprisingly, the workload of college is significantly more involved than the high school workload, and it comes with less hand-holding from parents and teachers” (Scott 1).
Sometimes at work I will take some assignments that I need to complete or a book that I need to read but will get interrupted when a call light goes off. Everyone in this world multitasks whether they know it or not. We could not live in a world without it. Some people have different preferences when it comes to multitasking and know their own limits. Then some people believe that multitasking is not effective and just ends up distracting someone from what they are trying to get done.
“The voices of these students reflect a primary challenge faced by many in our study: if students have several hours of homework per night, how can they find time for other endeavors in their lives (including extracurricular activities, leisure, and social time)?” Another quote that shows this is from Journal of Experimental Education. “One questioned, ‘Most people have no social life because of all the homework they do; how is that helping them in the real world?” Teachers don’t seem to teach students that there’s more to life than hours of homework a night. This is not healthy nor is it going to help them when they need to live on their own if they have no time to interact with people outside of school. Another student described her homework load as “plenty manageable… If I never try to do anything else!” These students are not meeting their development needs or cultivating other critical life skills. While it is true that, “three to four hours of homework a night is giving kids achievements in science, and math classes,” students should also be trying to maintain their identity, soul, and sanity!
Does your kid come home and complain about how they have too much homework? Do they always insist there should be less? Many people that think that the amount of homework that kids get is a problem and that they should get less. There are many complaints that homework stresses kids out and takes up all of their time, when in fact homework is essential to students because it gives students the opportunity to deepen their understanding of a topic, allows more new material to be introduced each year, and readies students for the future. During school many students tend to stop paying attention to the lesson being taught.
THE URGE TO KEEP TURNING THE PAGE: A Narratological Analysis of how Suspense is Constructed in Robin Hobb’s The Liveship Traders Trilogy Encouraging young people to read has been a constant struggle through the years and in recent years, when society has evolved to contain easy access to technology, meaning that anyone easily can switch between one momentary distraction and the next, the quest to make more young people read has become more difficult. All people, not only the young, are less willing to spend a long time on any one task, and at the same time, that is not the whole truth. Online, people complain about Netflix shaming them by asking if they are still watching when episode after episode has played without any interaction. TV-series are able to keep the audience hooked and watching hour after hour. So called cliff-hangers are part of the successful concept that keeps people engaged.
I still struggle everyday trying to be able to do my math homework and English homework together, but I'm not able to without becoming confused by the assignments directions. It is a hard way to live especially with no help, and to be called lazy or told I’m not trying hard enough, really lowers self-esteem. I've learned a lot about dyslexia that I didn't know when I first learned I
Ever wonder why most kids get distracted so quickly in class? Their are many reasons as to why students get distracted in their classes, for example a student may loose interest quickly, or they just get bored really easily. But the number one reason why students loose focus quickly, is that some students use their phones during instructional time. The majority of teachers, parents, and some students think that a phone is the number one thing that distracts from learning. the effect a cellphone can distract the student, have a very bad impact in theirs grades, and they fall behind from thir
I wake up and look at my phone, the last thing I do before going to bed is watch YouTube, and the rest of my day consist of various uses of communications and entertainment via these technological outlets. That being said, I feel I have little time left over to actually read a book and the speed at which I read seems to have decreased. Throughout my day I found myself drawn to technology when I was alone. When not eating or socializing with friends I found myself needing to fill this void of time. This both scared me and allowed me to see just how much I am controlled by my phone and laptop, to the point that I found myself reaching for my pocket when I had spare time and then, when not finding it, having a moment of panic followed by a realization again of the assignment I was doing.
