Assignments are a part of school works for all of students around the world, and no one can really aviod it. Should the teachers assign homework to students? It becomes a great questions that people argue about. In my option, giving homework to students, especially for children, have both aspects of good side and bad side.
First of all, homework is a good for children to have after school. For example, homework can help the students to practice and review what they have learned from the teachers. As everyone knows, practice makes it perfect! Additionally, aissgnments is a way to check if the children understand the lessons. Therefore, refreshing the knowledge after school can make the student undertand better. Last but not the least, homework has a important role of making students to think deeper on the lectures. The children should create a good study spirit in their young age.
Since all things have both sides, homework have the nagative effect too. For instance, children can be overwhelmed by doing assignments at home. Considering the school starts at 8:30am and finishes at 3:30pm, the students already spend farily amount of hours in learning at school, so they should not put more time on studying after school. Moreover, the children need to have a balanced life. Therefore, they should do other activities, such as sports or arts, instead of homework.
In summary, pros and cons both exist in homework. A better way to solve this matter may be making the optional assignments for students. The best decision can be made only if the teachers well consider the load of children from all aspects.
