I have just finished the article Homework: Too little or Too much? It depends. There are three main ideas to this article. Here they are.
Last Night's Homework
“The 2012 NAEP survey asked students how much time they had spent on homework yesterday.In all three age groups questioned, more than a fifth had no homework at all.” I would love to go to one of those schools in Pittsburgh because we wouldn’t have as much homework as we currently have now. But it would also affect your learning negatively. That could affect you when you're moving on to middle school or high school. it can affect you because what if you go to middle school and you don’t know what to do because you didn’t have a lot of homework. If you don’t have a lot of homework it can also affect your education in a bad way.
Friends, Sports, And Work
"...homework not only came in behind socializing. It also trailed exercise or sports and working for pay."I think that Loveless needs to do more investigating then just three surveys. He should also survey other students in pittsburgh.Loveless should also survey middle schoolers, or you can survey kids that just graduated and ask them about this homework issue. Loveless could also ask the teachers and staff at the schools that don’t get a lot of homework.
Differs From School To School
“The amount of homework can differ widely from school to school, though.“I feel like we should have homework in every class,” she said. That would allow for “more learning" and "a better chance to understand things.” I disagree with this girl, because what if you have a baby to take care of. Or what if you have sport activities to do after school. Then you wouldn’t have time to do all of this homework. Especially if your english teacher gives you a 5 paragraph essay. But you can try to work around those things. Like you can take your homework with you to basketball or soccer practice.
