  • Students would rather get told off or copy
    Homework is seen as a punishment or irrelevant
    Homework is too mechanical making it easy to copy
    Homework is seen as boring / difficult / too easy
    Leftovers = undesirable bits and pieces not finished in class
    Students see English as ‘work’ and don’t want it encroaching on their free time!
    Many times homework assesses nothing but organizational behavior.
