Some people believe that school children should not be given homework by their teachers, whereas others argue that homework plays an important role in the education of children. Discuss both of these views and give your own option
Some individuals are of the opinion that teachers should not assign homework to students. However, others think that homework is of paramount importance to educate children. Personally, despite many benefits of two mentioned thoughts, I believe homework should be eliminated.
On the one hand, there are some opnions that teacher should stop assigning homework as it takes away the time for students’ self-development. In fact, students have to spend much time at school, around 6 hours per day. Therefore, after-school time should be spent for students own hobbies such as playing sports , practicing instruments,…and other outdoors activities to develop their soft skills. However, assignment requires students to allocate time and mental capability to complete that prevents children from many benefitcal activities. Consequently, it is suggested that teacher should not give their students homework.
On the other hand, assignment is advised to be given to students as it help students confirm their knowledge effectively. There are some studies show that the best way to remember a piece of knowledge is practicing with it multiple times. Therefore, doing homework may support children in acquiring the information without teachers spending time repeating it. Moreover, assignment, which would be some simple experiments relating to their lessons ,help students learn how to apply their learned knowledge to the real life. As a result, students are encouraged to do homework.
In conclusion, despite many controversial opinions about whether teacher should give their students homework or not, I endorse the idea that assignment should not given to students as students do not have enough time for other hobbies, outdoors activities which helps them gain useful soft skills.
