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.
I think that there should be definitely a limit on how much homework students should get. I have friends who get so much homework they 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. Then they go to bed, wake up the following morning, go to school, come home and repeat this unpleasant activity. School is their whole life and I think 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.
In my opinion these people have a point. Discipline and hard work are important. At the same time, I do not think that overloading students with homework is a good way to teach them these qualities. We learn much better when we like what we do, not when we are sick and tired of it. Teenagers are humans too, and they, like everybody else need their free time.
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 our time. There has to be a balance between study time and rest, and schools should not forget it.
