Клековкина Е., Манн
Comment on the following statement:
| Most schoolteachers give their students homework. However, some teenagers today believe that they are being given too much homework and that they don't have the time to do it all properly. |
What is your opinion? Do you agree with this statement?
Some teenagers think that they are being overloaded with work and they do not have the time to do it all properly, whereas others do not agree. They consider the amount of assigned homework perfect.
I think that there should be definitely a limit on how much homework students should get. First of all, those pupils who get so much homework spend all their free time doing it and sometimes even that is not enough. As a result, they have to do it hastily and it comes out sloppy. Secondly, such school boys and girls go to bed late, wake up the following morning and feel horrible due to their lack of sufficient sleep. They go to school in a tired condition and have a really low efficiency of studying. School is their whole life and I believe it should not be like that.
At the same time there are people who believe that the more homework students get, the more they will learn. It will improve their discipline and teach them to work hard. They will have better chances to get into good universities after they finish school.
I cannot agree with the opinion mentioned above for a particular reason. Discipline and hard work are important, however, I do not believe that overloading students with homework is a good way to teach them these qualities. School boys and girls learn much better when they like what they do, not when pupils are sick and tired of it. Teenagers are humans too, and they, like everybody else need free time to mentally recuperate.
In conclusion, I would like to say that even though homework is an essential part of any learning process, it is only effective if it does not take up all the students' time. There has to be a healthy balance between study time and rest. Schools should not forget it. Thus, limited rather than immense homework will be better to revise one's studying.
In conclusion, I would like to say that there are opposing views on this issue. At first sight huge amount of homework might seem absolutely necessary but in actual fact it is only effective if it does not take up all students’ time. Thus, I strongly believe that limited rather than immense homework will be better to revise one's studying.
