Now add on three or more hours of homework a night and you have instant stress, not only for students but also for their families.
I have known my peers to stay up until midnight trying to finish their homework on top of everything else they have to do in their busy lives.
Students who have no help at home, therefore, are at a total disadvantage and their grades might falter because of this lack of assistance.
If teachers use homework as additional or extended practice, we should be able to do homework with few, if any, difficulties. I often get calls from my friends asking me how to complete assignments, and I think about how lucky I am to have parents who can actually help me with my homework. Maybe they copy because they simply didn’t take the time to do the work—or maybe they didn’t understand how to complete the work in the first place.
If teachers take the time to assign homework we can actually do within a reasonable amount of time, we will enjoy the experience much more, be less stressed, and have more time to spend with our families each evening.
In 2014, Stanford University showed the pitfalls of too much homework. Thanks to the research conducted by Stanford University, it was found that spending more than 2 hours on learning after school has a negative impact on student’s health. The famous song has these lines: “Too much is never enough!
Worse yet, I think, it puts a great deal of stress on our parents. Our parents have to figure out how to do the assignment and then teach it to us.
Many of the projects and activities are too difficult to be done without our parents' help.
Think about how much time you are spending on your homework assignments after you return home. According to the research conducted by a Stanford researcher/educational scholar Denis Pope, it is not okay if the amount of your homework exceeds two hours in a time equivalent.
Extra requirements like formatting (e.g., APA writing style) are part of the final grade.
