I think homework has a point it's to keep you going to make you work hard even out of school hours.
You think homework is hard or useless well once your out of school life my bite you in the butt.
Think if you go to college you will have a lot to do in your own time i feel homework is to have you always ready for working at home, i used to enjoy homework i liek doing things in my own time rather than in school no distractions.

Dreams91 has a great point. I am in 8th grade and trust me; English homework is a PAIN! I see it as this: If you don't do your work now, when in your life will you do it? It's getting you ready for the real workplace.

All right,schoolwork are useful..they can be used/referred as notes thus helping the student who doesn't understand a topic.
Saying a schoolwork useless is rather rude..please try to use more subtle words

Wait, what?

I think SOME homework is completely necessary. I mean... it'd make more sense if it were more selective...

But, honestly, I think homework is great practice for learning the material in the class being taught. Without homework, I'm sure I would've flunked Japanese and French. But... to have homework for something like Home Economics? Where I had to research, make, and bring in some food that I've never had before to be graded? That was a little... unnecessary, at least for me.

Then, you have to take into account that teachers are also "graded" on how well they've taught. So, they HAVE to assign papers to be written, and the like, to prove that they taught material in a way that the students understand. Their assessments reflect this every year and homework also prepares students so the teacher looks good, too.

Besides, doing a little assignment later at night helps you remember the material better. Some of that stuff really is quite useful in the real world.

Home work CAN be usefull, but not when its an incredably simple subject..
I think they really should be more selective when giving homework, its REALY annoying getting homework on something so simple it should already be known by a 3rd grader. what i REALLY hate is homeowork that can be done in a matter of seconds, because that means that all of those seconds were wasted, and the paper was a waste of trees and the writing it was a waste of graphite from my pencil or a waste of ink from my pen.
Its twice as annoying when teachers dont give homework on a subject that they dont spend ANY time in class on and expect us to know for a test. yet whatever a teacher does in class they pile up the homework on it, but when its important they never give HW on it and i end up having to probe deep into my long term memory just to answer a Lv 1 question that should just be a simple recall.
It just so happens that the teachers spends 3 days on pretty much the same thing that has about 1 or 2 questions on the 50 question quiz, but then all the other subjects get less than 10 mins of class time, and guess what ALL the homework is? you guessed it, its ALL about the subject we already spent days on.
It gets really aggrivating sometimes, when we also spend days on one basic subject, then later on the teacher whines about not having enough time for anything. Tbh, i really missed good teachers who actually gave homework on subjects that actually were worth reinforcing, if it is really worth reinforcing, i think the homework might actually help, but if its not, then why even waste the time, money, and effort on it?

Hi.



Homework can be useful or useless depending on the subject and class setup. It can also be both; in other words, a homework assignment can have some parts that are completely unnecessary and some that are helpful.

I think, in general, homework is most useful in math and foreign language classes and least useful in certain electives. Like I said earlier, though, the setup of the class is also a major factor.

Basically I agree with what everyone else said about homework being necessary, but I want to add that it is good preparation for if you go into further education (depending on what exactly) a LOT of work you do will be done independently. And I guess the same could be applied to a lot of jobs, a fair amount of them don't stop just because it's 3 o'clock. Eg. Teachers (who actually DO have "homework") have to mark students work/write assesments/plan lessons etc.

I think it depends on how much you struggle during class or how high the difficulty of the class is. For example, I think homework for a second language is absolutely mandatory, since it takes several tries before remembering the words by heart. It really depends on the person and the class.

Useless. Going to school every day for 7 hours each day should be enough to get through the tests.

I think homework is not completely useless, but it leaves us less free time to read or study for tests or relax, but it can help us to memorize things.

It depends on the student and their learning style.
For me, personally, even though I hate doing work when I get home, homework helps me a lot.
Sometimes I won't understand something in class, but when I go home and try to figure it out for myself with homework I'll understand. If I never had that homework, it wouldn't force me to try and learn it for myself.

I myself hate homework*, but that's still no reason for it to be pointless. I find it to be a useful, if not sometimes unreliable, way to make students get their homework done. Especially when the teacher adds some sort of motivation, such as "I'll give anyone who gets their homework done on time a candy" or something of that kind.


*That might just be because I never get it, and I'm always irritated when I actually get it.

Personally, I believe that homework is useful to a point. Some teachers overdo it by not giving you enough time to finish it. (For example, reading thirty pages in one night. That is working someone too hard, especially considering that they have had to slave over the same material during the school day.)

But if used in moderation, homework can be a helpful tool, especially if you need practice on the material.

I think homework has usefulness, but it is very stressful, and if you don't complete you get extra work or detention :/, if it was easy homework or something i enjoyed then i would do it but it would still be a bit stressful....

Friends



I feel like homework is often necessary to properly learn all that you need to learn for a class. From what my teachers have said, it seems like teachers struggle a lot with fitting the entire curriculum for their class in one semester, so homework lets us get work done that we didn't have enough time for in the allotted class time.

Homework also prepares you a lot for college, and even beyond that. From my experience with my college classes so far (I'm still in high school, so I'm only taking a couple), a lot of the work done, as well as reading from the textbook, is done outside of class, while class time is spent listening to lectures.

i had a high school biology teacher who got mad because we hadn't scored well on a pop quiz, so for the rest of the week we had to copy a chapter a day from the text in longhand. Most of us did it in front of the TV, just copying the words without paying any attention. And a math teacher's homework was predictable: Day 1 we did the even numbered problems, Day 2 he took grades, asked if there were any questions, and assigned the odd numbered problems. If all these grades were low on Day 3, he worked a few problems and assigned the review problems at the end of the chapter; otherwise he worked a few problems from the next chapter and we went on to the even numbered problems of that chapter. And like this article states, some kids may not be even interested in such predictable assignments.

The thing about homework I hated most was that we always had assignments made specifically to be done over holiday breaks or a very extensive summer reading list. Sometimes I would even thinking of using some homework help so that my time wouldn't be spend only on homework. That's why I was thrilled when I got to college and discovered how much easier Christmas was when you didn't have to finishing cleaning up after the visiting relatives and then go study and how much fun it was to go on a vacation without dragging alone textbooks and studying each night after a day of sightseeing.
