#68. Many teachers assign homework to students every day. Do you think that daily homework is necessary for students? Use specific reasons and details to support your answer.
I do not think that daily homework is necessary for students. On the contrary, daily homework will make students bored, occupy their free time, and limit their creative thinking.
First, in general, students stay at school for five or six hours per day. After classes they should take some other physical activities to rest their brain and exercise their bodies. In other words, sports can help them refresh their mind and they can have more energy to learn new lessons effectively. However, daily homework sticks them in learning. Students can easily get tied and bored. Without interest, they are forced to finish their “burdens” in order to avoid criticizing from their parents as well as teachers. So, the result can be imagined, vain.
Second, daily homework uses up their free time ruthlessly. After whole day classes, students should have rights to arrange their free time at home. They can read whatever books they like, watch television, or play games. If they are free to enjoy their enthusiastic activities, they are willing to love their lives much better than they have to bring their “work” even back home. Unfortunately, homework makes them have less or even no time to do want they enjoy. More worse, heavy assignments make them live more like learning machines than human beings.
Third, daily homework limits their thinking. If students have more time to read some other extracurricular books, they can broaden their mind to have more novel ideas. The comprehensive knowledge can help them better understand their subjects. Furthermore, they may have more innovative ideas to improve or even create something. However, homework has much less such effect. It forces students to pay more and more attention to their books and reduce their curiosity about other fields.
In conclusion, daily homework is not only necessary for students but also consume their precious free time and hinder them to develop more completely at both mental and physical aspects.
