Should Teachers Assign Homework Essay Writing

  • Of course homework should be given!

    Giving homework to children enhances their capacity to understand the subject better....Even if at school they are unable to comprehend something they can re read that chapter again and ask questions....Another principal cause for giving schoolwork is making students be much more aware of their learning. Learners are answerable for their study thoroughly so they oblige to put a great deal of effort into theor apprehension. Therefore, the accomplishment of prep is not only a responsibility for students to try their best but also a motivation to strengthen the cognition. Moreover, finishing homework helps learners becomes much more active to attain knowledge. It is easier for them to grasp the information in next lessons. By degrees, students might raise the sense of initiative in learning and others which is extremely favorable to handle unexpected situation

  • Yes, schools should give homework.

    Schools should be allowed to give homework. Homework is a vital tool to teach students time management skills, which is very important to have when you are in a professional work place. If you take homework out of schools you are doing a disservice to the students and are not doing everything possible to help prepare them for the real world.

  • Schools should give homework.

    I believe that homework is beneficial to a student because it gives them more practice in the subject matter, which further enhances their education. Also, homework gives the student a chance to identify areas that they are confused in so they can ask the teacher about them the next day. There isn’t enough time in a class for education to be personalized, so homework is the student’s effort into bettering their education.

  • Yes to learn more be smart and pass our grade

    To be smart and pass our grade to be smart.To not be lazy or just do nothing because some kids they don't want to do it teachers care about them. Teachers love us but sometimes they or happy or mad teachers are helping us to not to lose . Teachers love us and teachers are helping us they are there for us.

  • Yes yes!

    Children should definitely have homework. It helps them increase their skills in the subject they are learning. If they are having trouble with the topic this is a way for them to get extra help. Just having a lesson in class does not make it about the child. Homework is a way to let the teacher know if the child is struggling with the topic, or if s/he is doing just fine. Teachers should not stop giving homework, they should just give a little less.

  • Yes, schools should give homework and resources to complete the homework.

    Homework is important in order for students to understand what they're learning in a more personal way. Teachers and other administrators of education need to be aware of what is required to complete a homework assignment, and that not all students will have access to the resources required to do so. Schools must be able to provide these resources or assign homework that does not require resources that cannot be guaranteed in all homes.

  • Yes homework should be given

    Homework should be given to students so that they at least revise whats done in the class today as most of them do not remember.And homework days should be there like Monday for maths, Tuesday for science etc. Or can be given a lot on weekends. Homework has one solid benefit — mainly, if it is used as a tool to develop a love of reading.The point of education is to turn children into independent, critical thinkers that are responsible, happy people

  • Schools should give homework.

    Schools should give homework. Teachers give us homework so we have something to do instead of watching TV. Homework over the holidays is okay but I disagree with bombarding students with homework packages that take away family time. If you plan correctly then you can spend time with family and your homework.

  • Absolutely they should

    Practice with skills is necessary for learning how to adapt to different situations. However, teachers need to assign it and NOT check it, unless it's for marks. Quizzes will let you know if the students are getting it or not. Students, follow your own judgement. If you understand a topic, review the assigned questions, try the challenging ones. Don't understand, do some more. Someone said in the against giving homework section that students will ask for the help that they need if they need it, that teachers don't trust you to ask and that's why we assign so much homework. One of the hardest things to do is to admit that you don't understand something and to ask for help with it. Most students won't, even if they are struggling. Also, how do students know if they're struggling if they haven't actually tried to apply what was taught. Not teaching students good work habits in lower grades only does them a disservice when they attempt any post-secondary studies. Homework serves to reinforce the specific skills from the lesson but also teaches time management and study skills that students will need when they have less guidance for their learning in post-secondary.

  • Yes! There must be homework. Why not.

    Lots of students like me prefer to learn on their own rather than having a teacher lecture them. And homework does this. Homework lets students work on their own and helps them develop skills that they will need in their later life. Practice makes perfect as the saying goes. The only way to get good at something is to practice.

    Should teachers assign homework to students every day?

    This conversation happened all the time when I was a little kid. “Mum, I want to watch TV when I arrive home.” “No, honey,” my mother always answered very softly but firmly, “You have to finish your homework first.” “But,” I would usually got a bit upset at the response. “I do not like homework. Why must I do it every day?” Why must we do homework every day? Why must teachers assign it every day? Nearly every student ask these two question thousands of times when caught in the middle of school assignments. Though I still do not like homework tremendously, I think teachers are right to assign daily homework, for there are many benefits to homework.

    In the first place, homework provides opportunities for reinforcement of work learned during school time. It is commonly acknowledged that a timely review of what one has learned is crucial when it comes to his/her mastery of the knowledge. The assignments given to students are usually carefully designed by the teachers so that they can best help the students memorize and digest the knowledge. In fact, daily homework help me to possess a clearer view of what I have learned in classes and bare the points that I may have misunderstood during the lectures, so that I can get a better grasp of the knowledge.

    Besides, everyday homework enhances students’ ability to manage their time. Frequently, students find themselves in an awkward situations where their hearts go with the football while their heads are in their homework. Thus, students must learn to measure out their limited time and balance their leisure and work. Also, they learn to weigh the priorities, sometimes forcing themselves to postpone some enjoyment in order to accomplish the assignments expected of them on deadline. This prepares them for life after school when excuses and tardy work are usually frowned upon.

    Furthermore, for teachers, homework provides additional instruction in practice. The quality of student’s homework gives teachers a chance to reflect on the effectiveness their lectures, thus helping them to improve. For example, if homework was generally poorly done, the teacher might consider his or her teaching method over a certain subject: was the lecture too abstract for students? Or maybe he/she should have backed up a little bit at the beginning of the lecture. Thus, the teacher could try to avoid such cases for a second time, which, no doubt, can enhance students’ studying efficiency.

    Considering all the merits of homework mentioned above, maybe to assign homework or not is actually not a question. While tons of assignments are certainly great burdens for those who finish it as well as those who correct it, moderate daily homework is of great benefits to both groups of people.

    Thank you, Luschen! Your advice and corrections are awesome!

    Hi Luckyxuan, another fantastic essay. I could find a few minor errors, but your content is excellent and your flow seems better in this one.

In fact, daily homework help[s ]{"homework" is non-countable singular} me to possess a clearer view of what I have learned in classes and bare{maybe "and lays bare the points", but "exposes the points" or "illuminates the points"} seems better in this context} the points that I may have misunderstood during the lectures, so that I can get a better grasp of the knowledge.

    Besides, everyday homework enhances students’ ability to manage their time. Frequently, students find themselves in an awkward situations{singular/plural mismatch} where their hearts go with the football while their heads are in their homework. {I guess I understand what you are saying, but "go with the football" maybe more clear to say "their hearts are in following their favorite football team"} Thus, students must learn to measure out their limited time and balance their leisure and work. Also, they learn to weigh the priorities, sometimes forcing themselves to postpone some enjoyment in order to accomplish the assignments expected of them on deadline. This prepares them for life after school[,] when excuses and tardy work are usually frowned upon.

    Furthermore, for teachers, homework provides additional instruction in practice.{this "in practice" is a little unclear to me - are you meaning by extra practice, or in reality?} The quality of student’s homework gives teachers a chance to reflect on the effectiveness [of] their lectures, thus helping them to improve. For example, if homework was generally poorly done, the teacher might consider his or her teaching method [of] a certain subject: was the lecture too abstract for students?

    Considering all the merits of homework mentioned above, maybe {I would add "whether" here, I suppose Shakespeare didn't say "whether to be or not to be", but maybe it would have made his sentence more clear :) } to assign homework or not is actually not a {"the" - it is a question, but not "the correct" question} question. While tons of assignments are certainly great burdens for those who finish it {plural/singular mismatch} as well as those who correct it, moderate daily homework is of great benefits to both groups of people.

    Hi Luschen, thank you for your correction first. You are always so careful and patient with my mistakes!
    Actually, about this sentence in my essay "Furthermore, for teachers, homework provides additional instruction in practice", I was not very sure of what it meant when I wrote it. I wanted to say that the quality of students' work could help teachers and something like that. But I had no idea how to write it more specifically. Then I viewed some websites and I thought this sentence had expressed it clearly...:(
    Anyway, do you mind giving me some tips on how to summarize that forth para? I am still struggling with the topic sentence of this para.
    Thank you!
