I really need to do homework in high school?

So, you have been questioning the need to do your homework for school. Maybe it’s because you have been doing homework since kindergarten and you are ready for a break. Maybe it’s because you think that it is unnecessary. Maybe you understand the concepts that you are being taught. It doesn’t matter which of these reasons is causing you to doubt why you should be doing your homework. The fact is that there are strong reasons why you are asked to do your homework and none of them are because your teacher has no life and needs something to do after working an eight hour day at school but grade them.

  1. Your homework is designed to help you practice the concepts that you have learned in class. There are not enough hours in a day to work on all of the different concepts that you learn in school. To make sure that you get additional practice on these concepts, you are asked to do homework.
  2. Your homework reaffirms things that you have learned. By doing the problems over again at home and in repetition, you are building a long standing understanding of how to solve the problems. For example, when you are studying your math facts, you were asked them over and over again until you learned the answer.
  3. Doing the problems helps you learn. Hands-on experience is one of the easier ways to learn. By having to practice what you learned in class you are able to get the hands-on experience that you need.
  4. Everyone learns differently. That means that even though some people grasped the concept in class and whizzed through the homework, others needed different methods to learn the concepts.
  5. It gives your teacher an idea of how well she is doing. The homework is a communication tool between you and your teacher. It shows her how well she is teaching the subject to you and your other classmates. The results of homework help her gauge whether the class as a whole is ready for the next step.

However, the most important reason to do your homework is because it is part of your grade. Most teachers will fail you if you don’t turn in your homework. It is an integral part of the learning experience so teachers hold you responsible for handing it in on time. They also usually grade the homework to see how well you are doing.
