To exemplify this, my friend Joe was assigned three hours worth of homework last week…and that was only math! Placing hours of homework upon the fragile and developing brains that will be the future of America would be a crime in itself. To shield the inner thoughts of our eminent future, it is imperative that you reduce the boatload that students call homework. Furthermore, when stressed out from overloaded studies, scholars tend to become inimical, which is hazardous to their learning community as corruption within their mind leads to physical altercations with classmates. Homework is like a tsunami; you can try hard but you cannot avoid it.
But the soda or coffee makes you crash later. Plus, when students get so stressed out trying to get good grades by doing homework, the stress can get them sick .And all of this could have been avoided m causing less stress if we only didn’t have the homework. And my last point is, homework takes up way too much time. My math assignments alone take at least an hour. And then I still have to work on any assignments I might have in English or science.
His exams, on the other hand, were essay question exams and were very difficult especially when someone didn’t study. After the first exam, I knew I had make sure next two were better grades but unfortunately I struggled in English, so essays questions were not my strengths compared to multiple choice. Professor Hammontree graded very strictly on grammar and counted off many points and ended up failing his class. He also required two book summaries and
The main difference in my sophomore year to my junior year is the degree of difficulty for the classes I took. People often say their junior year has the hardest work and that their sophomore year pales in comparison. The degree of difficulty is much higher due to the fact that most colleges look at your junior year for the best reference point. Even though my sophomore year was hard at that moment, I felt like my junior year has been much harder up to this point. The reason for this was that I was not used to the concept of getting homework every day.
My greatest accomplishment is I made it to high school. It wasn't easy for me because I never did very well in my classes, especially on tests. I was so afraid that I wasn't going to pass my End-Of-Grade tests to get out of elementary school, much more nervous about middle school, but somehow I did it. I remember when the test's started at the end of the year I was so stressed and worried that I wasn't going to pass. It all started in 6th grade when we had End-Of-Grade tests.
One story in particular that worried me was the legendary large workload for IB students. During all the IB/freshmen orientations I went to, there were always students that said things like, “Oh, the workload wasn’t that bad. Only about 10 hours of homework a night…” At first I thought they were joking, but I began to have my doubts. Although I didn’t quite believe there would be as much homework as they said there would be, I was concerned about the amount of sleep I was going to be able to get. I have also always had a really bad issue with procrastinating.
If they get tired and sleepy then children can not function properly in school and during other lessons, like piano or math. This gives children a lot of stress that they have to finish EVERYTHING by a certain date. Some smart students may have already learned the subjects that they are doing really well and they have to do it again needlessly. I think that is why a lot of homework is a complete burden. All in all, I think that too much homework is unnecessary and a torture to so many children.
Valerie Dr. Brister ENG 110 31 October 2011 Where is my #2 and composition book?! Since becoming a student at VCSU just a couple months ago I have seriously questioned not only my intelligence but, my communication skills as well. Numerous times my stress level from having to use the computer in ways I have never even heard of has been incredibly overwhelming. My facebook page has several comments posted by me about the technology these days, and wondering what happened to a number 2 pencil, a notebook, and books. The generation has been called the dumbest; I have been considering myself the dumb one.
You see, not everyone is college material. College is hard, demanding, exhausting, time-consuming and requires a lot of commitment--not everyone is capable of enduring all of that for the length of time it takes to graduate from college. I have also noticed in my counseling that teenagers who are forced to go to college right out of high school often don't take college seriously enough. Generally in that situation, the teenager treats college like it is just an extension of high school. I have seen students go to college because their parents forced them to, then cut classes, not study, do way too much partying, and get poor grades.
For all that money, we achieve outcomes: 42 percent of students who enter a four-year institution fail to leave that school with a degree within six years, and studies find that many students' improvement in thinking skills is insignificant or nonexistent. Graduates typically leave with mountains of debt and struggle to find work.In a trend that would have been unthinkable ten years ago, Americans are expressing skepticism about higher education—not just with their voices, but also with their pocketbooks and their time. At all but the most elite schools, application numbers are down, and students are increasingly choosing less-expensive schools, starting at community colleges, or otherwise seeking to control costs.Colleges are feeling the pinch. Specially college tuition has become a major issue for the middle class family. It was too high for them, but the education system of college is the same like it was 50 years ago.
