    3. 3. Homework <ul><li>“ An y homework? You need to do your homework before you can go to Jamie’s.” </li></ul><ul><li>These are familiar words for any middle grade student. For as long as there has been school, homework has been an issue for most kids and parents. In most cases, parents do the nagging and kids do the work. In addition, there is little evidence to support the thought that homework increases student achievement. In fact, most students will tell you it is boring. Why do we continue to put students and parents through this painful process? </li></ul>
    4. 4. The body states evidence to support the point of view. <ul><li>It is interesting to note that homework results in little improvement in student achievement. </li></ul>
    5. 5. The body states evidence to support the point of view. <ul><li>Studies show that good attendance, high motivation and self confidence have more of an impact on academic growth. </li></ul>
    6. 6. The body states evidence to support the point of view. <ul><li>Yet it seems like little attention is paid to motivating students to learn and homework continues to be assigned. </li></ul>
    7. 7. My paragraph now reads <ul><li>It is interesting to note that homework results in little improvment in student achevement. Studies show that good attendance, high moetivation and self confidence have more of an impact on acidemic growth yet it seems like little attention is paid to motivating students to learn and homework continues to be assigned. </li></ul>
    8. 8. Second paragraph <ul><li>Homework assignments consist of redoing ideas presented during the lesson. For many students this is boring and repetitive. </li></ul>
    9. 9. Second Paragraph Continued <ul><li>For example, my son constantly complains, “ Bu t mom, I already know how to do this and I got a good mark on the test. ” </li></ul>
    10. 10. Second Paragraph <ul><li>Does he have a point here? Why spend time doing 25 questions if you master the concept in three? </li></ul>
    11. 11. Second Paragraph <ul><li>Homework assignments consist of redoing ideas presented during the lesson. For many students this is boring and repetitive. For example, my son constantly complains, “ Bu t mom, I already know how to do this and I got a good mark on the test. ” Does he have a point here? Why spend time doing 25 questions if you master the concept in three? </li></ul>
    12. 12. Conclusion <ul><li>Homework definitely causes stress for families and boringness for kids. Additionally research points out there is little improvement in student achievement. </li></ul>
    13. 13. Conclusion <ul><li>Let’s relieve the stress on both students and families. </li></ul>
    14. 14. Conclusion <ul><li>It is time to let our school board know that homework should be abolished. </li></ul>
    15. 15. Conclusion <ul><li>Homework definitely causes stress for families and boringness for kids.
