In schools, many teachers assign homework to mstuddents everyday. Some people maintain a positive attitude towards this phenomena, while others strongly disagree to it. As far as I am concerned, I choose to oppose the daily assignment for the students.
In the first place, I believe that daily homework is a burden to the students. After a long day in school, students want to get relaxed and enjoy doing something else at home, for example: watching interesting TV program, reading books they like, listening to popular music, or surfing on the internet etc. However, if the teacher assign homework everyday, they have little time for themselves. A case in point is the large amount of daily homework in the elementary and high schools in China. I remember that my comtemporaries and I usually stayed up late in order to finish all the homework assigned by different class teachers, thus we didn’t have any time to do anything else during the week days and nights.
In the second place, less homework will make teachers and students to increase the teaching and learning efficiency in class. For one thing, teachers can try to improve their teaching skill and find a non-traditional and inspiring method to catch students’ attention without necessarily assigning homework for them to go over the things learned in class. For another, students fascinated by the new teaching method, may become more interested in and attentative to what the teachers teach in class, thus all the things taught in class can be deeply imprinted in their mind.
Last but not the least, although I agree that study is the primary job of students, there are a lot of others things out of class and in the life for students to learn. These all take their time.
In conclusion, I believe that less homework is more advantageous not only because it can relieve the daily burden of students and offer them more time to learn other things out of class, but also because it will indirectly improve the teaching and learning efficiency of the class.
