Studies have shown that homework for elementary – high school should not have homework but work on some special project or reading at home after school for only a satin amount of time depending on what grade the student is in like forty minutes to two hours a day after school. Studies also show that homework can be more harmful then help full to students as they grow up. Studies show that students going to school all morning and afternoon doing work then coming home to do even more work will make them very over worked and make them lazy and they would not wont
R. Brian Rivas Canisius High School, Junior November 6, 2010 Dear Ms. Austin-Seymore My name is R. Brian Rivas and I want the chance to work at Buffalo Prep in the High School Prep program for eighth graders to help Dr. Acker in the Saturday math classes. I would like to work at prep because I think I am capable of helping the children understanding further the information from a kids stand point from. I want to work here because I know that if I had help from kids that were older then I was and with more experience then I would be an even better student then I am now. I never took any Buffalo Prep classes and I joined this program as of November of 2009 for tutorials. However, I have a lot of experience in math classes.
In the survey that we have conducted it shows that 7 out of 10 students says that homework given on fridays doesn't affect their health and social life but even prepares them for the future. Homework on fridays also allows us to add or write more information on our projects because we have the time to research properly. Homework on fridays also helps us refresh our memories on our current topic.If we were given homework only on weekdays our homework will just keep piling and pilling up and more homework results to students to sleep at a late hour because they only have one night to answer all their homework and study for their tests scheduled the next day and not sleeping in a reasonable hour will damage the students health while if we were given homework on fridays we still have time to answer our homework and chitchat with our friends because one homework does not take 48 hours to answer and we get to sleep at a reasonable time. As our slogan says "Homework on fridays less work on weekdays".This says that if we have homework on fridays we will have lighter load of work and will have the time to study well for our quizzes. As you have hear in these facts that we have stated it shows that homework on fridays clearly has no negative effect on the student`s health and social life but may even have a positive effect.
How My Education Has Affected My Life My Education from kindergarten to the twelfth grade was good for some of it but I also have some bad times. When I was younger and as I have gotten older I have always loved school from kindergarten all the way to twelfth grade and now college. School was a place I felt safe and secure at and also loved by my teachers although I have had some bad days in class. I can relate to Sherman Alexie in many ways of how school was the same for us. I was picked on but It didn’t happen to me until I was in middle school.
Most students can agree that uniforms are the most exciting component about school, however governments and schools are reconsidering removing the school uniform policy, but what they really are removing is an important childhood memory and breaking a tradition. School uniforms help transform students to obtain a neat and smart appearance and as a matter of fact, help prepare them for adulthood for many reasons. A majority of school uniforms are designed to give a formal approach, which develops a neat, presentable and professional appearance for all students. Many public schools don’t require a uniform policy, including the public school I went to back in my primary years. The way I remember how most students dressed when attending this school would give the appearance that they were going to a night club, it was disappointing to see numerous amounts of young students dress this inappropriately.
August 16, 2012 ‘On Homework’ One of the most difficult challenges that teachers and parents face is getting teenagers to do their homework. A common complaint with high school students is the fact that they do not have enough time to do their homework. Since the year 2000, American students are holding down more jobs, taking on more household responsibilities, and participating in a greater amount of extracurricular activities than any other generation of American students. As more and more distractions are made available to the American teenager, it is imperative that today's students are aware of the importance of doing their homework. Homework is a necessary component of every successful student's education.
Students are no longer looking to a teacher for all of the information. Most of what I hear about education in my community is negative. We start children in school at a very young age due to fears that they may “fall behind” or “not be on target” in relation to their peers. We require them to site in a classroom that follows the same format as a classroom from the 1800’s. This includes, 4 walls, desks, a teacher facilitating the lesson, and little ears and eyes tuning in and out.
When I eventually transferred to public schools, the issues that everyone overlooked because they were not an obvious problem for me really came back to haunt me when I was assigned any sort of extensive writing assignment. I continued to take reading classes in public school. Fortunately, I managed to get through my English classes and graduate high school never expecting to have to write any sort of paper again. While I thought that to be true for the first two years out of high school, that proved to be a poor mindset to have. June
Homework can be considered as the out of class tasks that a student is assigned as an extension of classroom work. Well, in the 21st century, increasing amount of the homework seems so common in every school. Many students claim that it is not really work for improving their studies by doing homework but some do. So here is the question, does homework give us advantages or disadvantages? First of all, homework will diminish the amount of time that a child can spend on the other activities such as sports, family time and leisure that can make them feel free and relaxed from school.
Most students see homework as a burden VIII. 7hrs of learning at school is enough extra time spend doing homework after school hours where students should be relaxing and rewinding, builds on stress. IX. Homework prevents students to have a balanced and well rounded lifestyle not just a pure academic life X. The amount of stress homework causes kids is ridiculous, especially when they're already under so much pressure to get into a good college and do well in school, along with making friends and staying active.
