I strongly disagree with the previous statement. It’s normal that studentsprocrastinate, but it is also important to take into account the amount of homework the kids get. The amount of things they have to do academically speaking added to their extracurricular activities reduces thetime they have to work. Of course it’s possible to not work in other classes, but the thing here is the sacrifices the student has to make in order to be able to do this.
I consider myself a prettygood student. I’m certainly not the best one, but I do my work in time and prefer to do it at home than at school. If I try to do my homework during the class hours, the result will be mediocre, butthat’s just me. The amount of daily work I have made me quit some activities I really enjoyed doing in the afternoon.
I do procrastinate, but not as much as I used to. I believe that if students areprohibited from doing homework in the classroom they’ll find a way to do so without being caught. So the solution isn’t banning doing homework during class hours.
I personally believe that sometimeshomework isn’t the best learning method whatsoever. So what’s the point on giving the students work that will not be in any way helpful? None, I believe. The solution is in the content of the homework.If the contents (and not the form) are what the homework is based in, then, the learning is more successful and useful; the homework that’s based in the length and structure of the homework, and notthe knowledge and experience the student can get from it is a complete failure.
So not, I don’t believe that procrastinating and doing homework at school are problems, I believe that the homeworkper se is the problem. The system of homework designed by some teachers is prehistoric and it’s based on repetition. I’m not a teacher and I don’t underestimate their admirable job and knowledge, but...
