Should we have homework?
Debate Rounds (5)
Homework actually helps students in other ways, not solely for studies, to help them learn what procrastination is a help them to have the ability to dedicate and fix their focus onto something knowing that there can be a consequence (although it not being necessary)
Students must know the importance of their studies and homework is just to assure that there were no doubts (hat have been concealed during class time) lingering in a students mind. Homework is literally just insurance that the students learnt a cr*p about what was said in the classroom.
So you (assuming you are a student) should either suck it up because its for your own benefit;
Or come up with a better argument than me "\_(- _-)_/" Your pick mate.
The time to relax is not on school nights.
This thing about homework being too much for students is nonsense, for students to feel that the homework is not as much is for them to know how to control their time and organize when to do what. It is all a state of mind that makes students think that the time spent on homework is unnecessary.
-Explains that there is about 3.5 hours of homework time spent inside a house. I don"t believe this is true as it is not necessary for a student to complete all the homework given to him , inside school, in one day as students are more likely to be given a couple of days or maybe even a week to complete the given task. So this article is not all that accurate.
My point is that no anxiety disorder will occur if a student has his/her things planned and organised the way they should be. If someone was to have an anxiety disorder it would would be because they were not prepared for the homework, the only way to not be prepared for homework is because of a lack of organisation and planning, meaning the student was procrastinating (https://en.wikipedia.org...)
A lack of such would mean procrastination, and by what you have said I think you mean that students should be given more time to do things they want, non-study related, away from the point of going to school, and procrastinate.
The school week should be for study, holidays and weekends are for relaxation. Therefore you can not argue on having time to yourself at night, during a school week. Even if you were to, like I said earlier " it is not necessary for a student to complete all the homework given to him , inside school, in one day " meaning that it takes less time, than you may think, to complete homework.
**I will take another reference "..when given excessive homework...". The debate topic is "Should we have homework?" and that reference has nothing to do with such. We are supposed to be talking about the reasons for homework, the use of homework but not about having TOO MUCH homework. We are not debating on the amount of homework, we are debating whether it is needed or not, despite the quantity.
*This is my final point before getting to the debate. Throughout the debate you have been stating reasons of why homework should not be needed. Yet still you have not responded to any of my arguments. I think that is a debating tip you should know, i would also prefer it so i could confirm that you are human and not taking theses arguments from a third-party.Please take these notes in consideration for round four.
Although i have no reason to believe your argument, i will debate against it anyway.
1. Teachers don"t care
You said that students would start to do homework together because they were too lazy to do it on their own. THAT IS A GOOD THING.
By writing down and reading whatever they are taking from their friends worksheet, they are also learning it. And teachers see this as a good thing, children are still getting their homework finished and on time. Like i said before "Homework is to help students dedicate and focus on what they should be doing"; if children have the time to copy from another student, it"s because they care about their grade and how well they do in school.
Before i even REMARK upon the rest of your SOMEWHAT of an argument, i must reference the beginning of your arguments story:
"Children might become hateful. "
You based your entire argument on a hypothesis, that is your mistake. Therefore i do not have to comment on the rest of your argument. Your argument is a simple list of Hypotheses;.
Ref."Homework can also induce"
Ref. "Children might become hateful."
Ref."Furthermore, too much homework can encourage cheating"
Ref." When the student is exhausted from doing their homework, they tend to cheat from a friend"
Ref." In addition, the student might get extremely frustrated"
Ref."they might break something"
Ref."Homework can cause very bad behavior.
The argument IS a Hypothesis. As the first sentence is one. So i cannot argument against it as "technically" it isn"t an argument in the first place.
Homework does not take up social time. The main place in which students socialize is "in the school premises!"
I don not want to debate you anyomore because you are cheating. BYE!!
