Homework? Top 3; Pros and Cons
Do your homework!
If only it were that simple
First and foremost, we often ask ourselves, is homework beneficial for our kids? What would other educational strategies help them learn classroom material if homework were banned? Is learning digitally enough for them?
Historically, homework has been helping students for generations. We were taught since elementary school to organize and prioritize homework activities, collect study materials, note-taking, and follow directions. It helps reinforce classroom learning and develop good study habits. The independent concept is the main reason for students to well understand the curriculum.
“Everybody is a genius. A genius is a talented person who does his homework” -Thomas Edison-
What about the quality of the homework? Quality homework is engaging and relevant to students’ lives. In some subjects, like math, worksheets can be very helpful. It has to do with the value of practicing over and over. However, it has been such a hassle to do it every day despite the tight schedules. What are the benefits of never-ending school work?
Studies have shown that homework does help increase students’ achievement. About 69% of students in classes that were assigned homework outperformed compared to those who does not. A majority of studies have a high impact on take-home assignments. With these statistics, how can it be harmful? This is because, high-achieving high school students said too much homework leads to sleep deprivation and other health problems such as headaches, exhaustion, weight loss, and stomach problems Excessive homework can also lead to cheating.
