i'm doing a persuasive writing essay on why homework is bad for students.i know this is a battle that cannot be won, but we had to chose from like 5 topics and this was my favorite so... yeah..

anyway, i'm going to the pit in search of any statistics, quotations, interesting facts, ect., to support my argument.

please answer seriously..knowing the pit, however, i do not expect you to

Over 9000 students died doing homework last year. It's a convincing argument

Yes, you'll find great quotes here:
"Rape"
"Circle jerk"
"Epic fail"

..you pick

and for statistics just say about 90% of the people in the pit are virgins
Her friends are gazing on her,
And on her gaudy bier,
And weep!-oh! to dishonor
Dead beauty with a tear!
They loved her for her wealth-
And they hated her for her pride-
But she grew in feeble health,
And they love her-that she died.

You're not going to find any studies or statistics even indicating at this conclusion.

Good luck with it anyway.

I have almost perfect test grades in my classes because I retain information very well, yet my overall grades are terrible because I never do my homework.

I mean, homework is for practice, right? If I don't need any practice to ace the tests, why the hell should I waste my time on it?

So yeah, that's how homework is boning me in the ass right now. Hope it helps.

Students are in school, sitting down, not exercising for almost the whole day. Homework stops students from getting outside to get fresh air or get exercise at all.

My school started putting up posters on the walls. "101 Ways to Get High Without Drugs", one of them is "Do Your Homework".

Use this

"Philosopher and psycologist Andrew Barrie beleives homework can damage the nervous system of young students, because of the lack of sex lives they will have being stuck inside doing quadratic formulae and essays all weekend. Could you go without sex for 4 years and still be sane?"

Its even using a rhetorical device at the end, which teachers seem to love for essays. Your f*cking welcome

Because kids will never have to do homework later in life; it doesn't teach anything extra/studying works better; and it wastez mah time.

2. Open C:
3. Click on WINDOWS.
4. Open the folder "Media."
5. Click on the file "onestop."
6. Listen.

Just tell them it makes peoples grades reflect them being more or less intelligant because they didn't do the homework, and some people don't need the extra work, so it's just un-needed stress.

Homework is practice

Practcie for those who don't learn enough in class

Therefore, I don't do homework becaus eI pay enough attention in class to elarn the material and ace the tests

why should I do homework?
why should I be burdened with extra work if I alreayd know the material?

Just don't do it. Then when the teacher asks say "I didn't because doing homework is bad. And to do something bad is, as you can guess, a bad thing. Therefore, **** you and your homework. That shit's bad"

See what happens

Thank you.

This is precisely the reason I have a 98% test average in Honors History, yet an 84% overall grade in Honors History.

Because it takes away from our time that we could be using to interact socially and prepare ourselves for what we really need to be prepared for later on.
#34
Well, honestly, I think that homework is bad because most people have enough to do already. Why can't school end when the bell rings, like its supposed to? I know someone who does all her homework. She has no life because she's too busy doing work! She's a cool person and all, but she seriously needs time to LIVE. And the teachers give us homework because it teaches us about responsibility. Plus you pretty much fail if you don't do it. Go figure. I want to get out of school so badly right now... *cries in corner*

Well for all you who say well I retain very well so i have high tests scores but low grades. You are obviously to stupid to understand how to get good grades, retention isn't everything.

Yeah, actually, retention IS everything in high school.

To be completely honest, I don't give a shit about good grades.

However, I would like to be graded on what I know and not what I do. You have to see things from my point of view. I have great test scores, I pay attention and participate in class and I'm very retentive. Homework is for practice; however, I don't need practice. Why should I waste my time doing it? There are dozens of more constructive things I could be doing besides homework that won't teach me jack shit.

Besides, how is knowing who wrote the Bill of Rights (George Mason) or knowing who was head of the Western theater of war in WWII (Dwight Eisenhower) supposed to help me in my future career as a biology teacher?

It isn't.
