JohnMaynardKeynes

Pro

I am Pro, so I will be argue in favor of this resolution. Unfortunately I only have about 600 characters.

In defense of homework:

1. It gives students a chance to practice what they have learned in class to reinforce their knowledge.
2. It gives teachers the chance to ensure that students understand the materials before they move on.
3. It teaches children time-management skills.
4. It improves critical thinking and memory skills.
5. It teaches children how to take responsibility and work independently.
6. It allows children to apply concepts they learned in the classroom and discover new concepts and ideas.
7. It helps children to develop good skills--time management, study habits, etc.--that will benefit them later in their live
