Should schools give extra recesses?
Debate Rounds (3)
I believe in quality over quantity. according to the American Academy of Paediatrics policy statement on "The Crucial Role of Recess in School." The results are the same whether the recess is held indoors or out. Directed attention, such as that used in academics, has its limits. Taking an unstructured break avoids attention fatigue, regardless of the age of the child. While the time spent at recess is shorter in middle school, the periodic breaks have the same optimizing effects on the brain.
You said: Recess "deprives children of learning"
This is incorrect it allows them to have more meaningful work time and therefore doesn't deprive children from learning, it does quite the opposite it allows children to focus and learn better making learning more meaningful
I look forward to your response.
although there is slightly less time to work. students due to recess will be able to focus more by utilizing a break they can focus and produce higher quality work.
if you would like an elaboration on this idea. Refer to my previous argument.
Your children are right to love reccess it is beneficial and allows them to accomplish more work and focus better for an elaboration on this idea refer to my previous argument.
