Even though a lot of students at Dobie have already gotten the hang of school homework, there is more than enough people who still don’t like doing it. Sports and after school activities also get in the way of kids study time and homework time too. It just comes down to one question, is homework really worth it?

Many kids at Dobie would love to agree that homework is a big waste of time, but one student with the name of Madelyn Pickett has neutral feelings about it and states, “Homework helps us remember things we learned in class.” Pickett also agrees that it can be a little too much at the same time and says, “Sometimes teachers excessively overload us with homework, like they want us to study for the S.A.T’s.” Both of her opinions are very hard to disagree with because they show great, valid points.

After getting to know someone who has an undecided opinion on whether or not homework is useful or not, Jocelynn Klein does not think it is a waste of time, as much as, that some people get too much of it. “Some kids are up all night doing homework and they don’t get enough sleep,” Klein says. Kleins statement does give a great point, homework is helpful but some students may get too much to handle at once.

Although there are many reasons to believe that homework is not good, it can still be beneficial to a lot of students and help them in the near future. It can help with tests and it “shockingly” can bring your grades up. It really is just your opinion, deciding whether or not to do the homework teachers give out.

    I feel that your title does not go to much with the article although yo interviewed people with very good points that leave you thinking in between if homework is good or not.

    I think having 3 sheets of homework every single night, studying for tests and notecards is really tough.

    I think that it’s okay to have a little bit of homework, but I think that we get to much.

  4. Kristen Howard on December 14th, 2017 1:15 pm

    I think we shouldn’t have homework

    I like getting homework for math because it helps me review the lesson, but homework for every class is overdoing it.

    I agree with your views, but I still manage to keep up with my homework.

    I think algebra should have about 10 problems every night except game days.

  17. Jin Seo on February 1st, 2018 12:51 pm

    I like the article because it is showing the 2 different opinion and talks about it.

  18. Leilah Gomez on February 1st, 2018 12:55 pm

    I think having homework every other night or so is ok, but with pre ap math every night, notcards, roadmaps, and having science homework is a lot.

  19. Angel Pham on February 1st, 2018 2:01 pm

    I agree with your reasons too Nice work!!

  20. Keiahna on February 1st, 2018 2:57 pm

    I have mixed feelings about the subject. While yes homework does help us understand a subject better, I feel that the amount given is quite a bit extra.

  21. Tyler cabe on March 26th, 2018 12:20 pm

    In my opinion we get to much homework. for example my uncles wedding was yesterday. And i didn’t ever have time to do anything

  22. Tyler cabe on March 26th, 2018 12:22 pm

    we should be able to have fun instead of being trapped with all this homework. We have lives just like the teachers but sometimes i feel like they forget that

    I agree that homework is a huge waste of my time, in having to go home just to do more work.
