I've made some suggestions in CAPITAL letters:
|Some students don't like doing homework everyday, while others prefer doing daily homework since the homework helpS them a lot. Different students may have different |
preferenceS. In my opinion, the students should have (the )daily homework, but not too much. I hold this opinion for several important reasons as follows.
First of all, homework, which is part of A lecture, can help students review the lecture after class, and understand further about the subject. By doing homework, students could/CAN figure out those areas of lecture which they misunderstand in class. Then they can recall the lecture and try to understand those subjects. Even though after trying, they still feel confused, they can mark those areas and
ask for help from teachers. In turn, teachers can get the information from students. By reviewing the assignment collected from students, teachers could/CAN know/GET some
information about the quality of their lectures, such as which area of the subjects should be
given more details to demonstrate and IN which function students should need more practice(s). In this sense, homework not only helps students, but also provides teachers WITH an instant feedback of the quality of lectures. Homework seems like a bridge between students and teachers.
On the other hand, too much homework may ruin students' lives. Overload assignment makes students exhausted, and thus results in the opposite of our initial purpose.
If we can imagine, students need to take 3 hours or more to finish their daily assignments after 5-hour school in the daytime, they don't have time to develop their hobbies which are very important for/THEIR FUTURE LIVES (life that one could have). For instance, with/BY studying all day, students have no time to practice playing sports, drawing cartoon/PICTURES or playing
chess by/IN which WAY they CAN refresh their mind after school. At their young age, they work as hard as adults do. Moreover, (the) tired students have no spirits/ENTHUSIASM in class any more. For these aspects/REASONS, teachers should not assign too much homework to students every day.
In short, I believe that teachers should assign (the daily) homework EVERY DAY to students, but should not assign too much to them. Because on the one side/HAND, homework helps students to master (the) subjects, and also helps teachers to adjust their lecture and improve the quality of classes; but on the other side/HAND, overloadINGhomework ruins students' lives, who, like adults, have their own lives TO LEAD
