This is due to the difference in expectations between high school and college. More importantly, college work and papers are due the day that was stated. In high school many teachers extend due dates and are lenient with handing in work late. While professors in college expect work due on the dates due no exceptions. Transitioning from high school to college English is tough for most students because of the expectations in college exceed these in high school.
To have a plan and goal in your schooling is a good way to start as well, and a system with your schedules and everything else will be also very helpful to maintain a good grade in college in all your classes. The first thing that is very important is attendance that is because if you do not show up for your classes it will hurt you in various ways. It can get you super behind on everything that is going on in class. And in college you are given points each day for showing up to class and if you’re not there those are class points you are losing for each of the days you do not come. Most teachers give you a couple days that you can be absent for and any more days you are absent after that points are taken off.
By not showing up to class you fall behind on your work because you failed to turn in the homework you should have that day. That means the next time you show up to class you must turn in your homework from the time you missed and the one that is due that day. You also don't get to learn the material needed properly. You are not able to learn the material properly because the examples given on the day you missed can longer be given. It is not the teachers fault you miss school so she should not have to go back and show you what she showed everyone else that showed up that day.
So giving them extra time to do their homework in school would increase the advantages of having their homework done. Another thing is that if students replace their PE class with a tutorial and you have to leave early for a game, then you would still be able to get your homework done in school if you PE class would come before you leave for games. Second is that student athletes can end up getting injured in PE class and not be able to play in sports for certain amount of time. The chance of a student athlete being injured in a PE activity that they are unfamiliar with is more likely than in their daily practices. So they are less likely to have an injury at practice since their sport becomes second nature.
Even when they came to school and they left in the middle of the day teachers could call them to know if they’re on campus. Principals, teachers, and school staff think that Texting other people in class to cheat is always going to be a problem, but if we try to put cell phones faced up on our desk during tests so teachers can monitor communications as teachers walk each row to check on each pupils work. Every advantage also has disadvantages, so you must work to make these devices be the servants they were meant to be. Any student who receives text messages or calls with another student during a test should get their phone taken away for the balance of the day. Cell phones, like all devices, are servants, not inherently evil unless
Schools should lower the amount of homework given to students to help improve overall grades, help students participant in more extracurricular activities, and more time to get a better night of sleep. After seven hours of non-stop classes, the last thing a student wants to do is sit at a desk for another couple of hours to do more schoolwork. Homework does help students to comprehend and understand what they are learning in school, yet the average school kid can tell you there is nothing exciting about the countless hours of hard work they have to put it. In lowering the amount of homework students will be able to get more sleep and have more time to participate in extracurricular activities. If students don’t understand the material in class what makes you think going home to do more work is going to help.
How Much Homework Is Too Much Homework? Terri Carroll English 102 Professor Hamlin October 23, 2011 How Much Homework Is Too Much Homework? Author Jonathan Rauch is proposing that students are not really “learning” in school, which they are practically being allowed to “slide” into the next grade. Essentially stating that American students are lazy in their learning and if teachers would assign more homework, the student would excel more in school. If more homework was to be assigned to students, would they necessarily achieve more?
Julia Hall February 15, 2011 Group D In this essay there is a debate on a longer school day or homework. I believe students should have a longer school day instead of homework. The main topics in this essay is what the students can do during the day without homework, what the parents can do and what the teachers in the school building can do if their wasnt any homework. Ever want to know what the feeling is like to not think about homework when you get home? One reason i think a longer school day is better than having homework is because students can work harder on trying to do their work and not rush through it to get it over with so they won't have to do it for homework.
They can’t figure out what to wear, wasting their time standing in front of a mirror, and may even be late for class. These are the realities for many students across the board. But what side of the fence would you rather experience; a morning full of stress, and confusion, or a morning full of ease with one less thing for you to worry about? If your answer was the second option, then you should continue reading about why school uniforms should be instilled into schools, and the great benefits they bring to the learning environment. To get things started, when the topic of uniforms in schools arise, you hear the typical, "uniforms are boring!
I strongly believe that you have to do your homework to get good grades. Most of the time you do your work in class and then you get home and already forgotten so it is a good review. I also think that if you review what you did in class for like ten minutes it will help you remember the information when the time comes to take a test. Now a days, teenagers think that studying is a waste of time but it really is not it helps you remember a lot and everytime you study even if its only for a few minutes it really benefits you. Lastly, do not use your phone in class.
