What About the Studies?

A recent survey shows that formal daily home study with parents does result in significantly higher school performance. Of course, a recent

big study, touted in Newsweek, showed the opposite, at least among elementary-school students. Studies are analogous to standardized tests: They measure one set of criteria, but what about all they leave out?

Will a student enjoy when he or she do her homework? Most students will say no. When the student is given a homework to do, they usually will not learn a lot as they would be thinking of playing outside with their friends or some other things that distracts the mindset. Thus schools should abolish homework.

This article meets the requirements of a good article. This article has common sense because it uses real life examples.This article also has  good grammar in it. This article focuses on why homework should be removed using a debate format for the explanation.

Pro's and Con's of homework

I agree that the younger ages should not be exposed to that much homework because it causes stress if they don't get it and decrease their performance. I also agree that in the end it is preparing them for college but at what cost? Making them grow up and worry about things faster than they should be has many negative effects and one of them, robbing the children out of their childhood. I used to be really supportive of homework but for higher grades and for math only, maybe read whatever they want when they are younger because it's exciting for kids to read and I want to encourage that but not something assigned! Elementary school is when kids are supposed to want to explore their idea's so let them take a chance at that, don't make them copies of each other .

I chose this article because it showed two points of view. Also, it briefly described every reason in 1 or 2 sentences. Wrapping up, it was a very good article, with great information and excellent quotations.

I found this article beneficial to read because it pretty unbiasedly presented both the pros and cons of homework and kind of let the reader determine whether or not it was beneficial or detrimental on its own. It allowed the reader to make their own decision based on ALL the facts instead of presented one side strongly and condemning the other, making it more of a persuasive article. 

Jenee' Greenwood's curator insight, December 14, 2013 12:43 PM

This article clearly distinguishes what the author believes to be hinering and contributing to the students by completing homework assignments. It was interesting to read that the French President proposed  no homework for a year, while we are debating if it is an effective option or not.

This is the first of a series of videos being produced by ExtraCredit this month that explores why games can create changes in education. This one focuses on homework and how games allow you to fail and try again...and we know that students do try again...and again...and again. The second video in this series is called How Games Can Help People (by giving instantaneous feedback amongst other things). The link to that video is https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pzmdx7ZL8OM.

I think this video is a good resource because first it starts talking about homework cons, but then it starts giving solutions and ideas about overcoming the fear of doing homework.  Also it isn't long and it is not boring so people that see it will learn in a fun way.  Last but not least it will give you a lot of ideas and examples you can put in your persuasive essay.

Homework, Sleep, and the Student Brain

At some point, every parent wishes their high school aged student would go to bed earlier as well as find time to pursue their own passions -- or maybe even choose to relax. This thought reemerged as

 

Homework can be a powerful learning tool -- if designed and assigned correctly. I say "learning," because good homework should be an independent moment for each student or groups of students through virtual collaboration.

 

It should be challenging and engaging enough to allow for deliberate practice of essential content and skills, but not so hard that parents are asked to recall what they learned in high school. All that usually leads to is family stress.
