Homework might be your least favorite task because it requires you to study off the school campus. You already spend half of your day at school and do not wish to engage in any such activities once the school bell goes off. However, sometimes it is inevitable to attempt your academic assignments outside of school because you have to score well and maintain your overall academic performance at school. If you tend to avoid writing your papers, you may get in a trouble or lose your overall academic performance.

Parents and educators question the value of setting assignments for students. But what does the neuroscience say? I teach both primary and secondary, and regularly find myself drawn into the argument on the reasoning behind it — parents, and sometimes colleagues, question its validity.

Although homework can help increase understanding of new topics this kind of practice is not helping students because it can interfere with sleeping, stresses kids and teenagers out and can cause depression, and even make a kid give up on school altogether. Some people believe that homework helps reinforce the skills taught to their students that day; however, if students are getting. According to Richard Walker, an educational psychologist at Sydney University, data has proven that in countries where more time is spent on homework, students score in tests lowering rapidly. I have experienced this effect and sometimes when I get homework on a test night it will give me less time to study so I might not get as good as a grade.
