Morgan and Gullett 3 Introduction How often does a student fail a class because of misunderstanding the homework assignment they’ve been given? Once a student fails the homework they will begin to stress about their grade in the class, test scores etc. When a student begins on the road of anxiety-filled and sleepless nights because of these exhausting assignments, they will begin to not do well during their classes or with other responsibilities they have throughout the day. The work should stay in the classroom, that way it keeps the student focused and the students can get the help they need so they won’t shut down while engaged in the important work that the teacher delegated them. For many reasons, graded homework should not have a presence in the school system such as that it should only be used in extreme circumstances, lessens stress and anxiety, and that the work should stay in the class. The hope is, with the help of the school administration, this issue can finally be resolved.

Morgan and Gullett 4 Use of Homework in Extreme Circumstances If homework was to be done away with, there would be the option for teachers and students for the students to take homework with them after class. When the students are in class, it can become very apparent to the teacher who is struggling and who is understanding the material. Once the teacher knows who does and does not understand the material they will know where to help the student achieve their goals. They can assign specialized homework to the student or students that are struggling and the homework is catered to the student’s educational needs so that they can become proficient in that lesson. Also, the students may ask for homework

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
