Your school day is seven hours long, yet many teachers require homework. Does homework help you to learn better? Think about the advantages and disadvantages of homework. Decide whether you think homework should be required or not. (Allow an opportunity for discussion.)
Directions for Writing
State your opinion about whether or not homework should be required. Your goal is to convince your reader that your opinion is “right.” Be sure to include the effects homework has or does not have on your learning, as well as other arguments to support or prove your opinion. Look at the opposing opinion and include some answers for possible arguments from the reader.
