A very good morning to our beloved lecturer: sir sellodeyan and my

fellow friends. My name is Siti nor ain and i as a proponent side. We
are debating about the title Homework helps students to improve in
thier studies. However do we really know whether does homework is
beneficially? I strongly agree that homework very helpful to students
in their studies because of the three reasons which are encourage
student independent, improve thinking skills and allow student to
learn information.
Firstly my point is, Homework encourages students to work more
independently as they will have to at college and in their jobs.
Everyone needs to develop responsibility and skills in personal
organization, working to deadlines, being able to research, etc. If
students are always spoon-fed topics at school they will never
develop study skills and self-discipline for the future. A gradual
increase in homework responsibilities over the years allows these
skills to develop.
Secondly my point is improve thinking skill. Having homework also
allows students to really fix in their heads work they have done in
school. Doing tasks linked to recent lessons helps students
strengthen their understanding and become more confident in using
new knowledge and skills. For younger children this could be
practising reading or multiplication tables. For older ones it might be
writing up an experiment, revising for a test and reading in
preparation for the next topic. Professor Cooper of Duke University,
has found that there is evidence that in elementary school students
do better on tests when they do short homework assignments
related to the test 1. Thus, does homework help Students gain
confidence from such practise, and that shows when they sit the
Another reason, is allow student to learn information. There are only
a few hours in each school day its not enough time to cover properly
all the subjects children need to study. Setting homework extends
study beyond school hours, allowing a wider and deeper education.
It also makes the best use of teachers, who can spend lesson time
teaching rather than just supervising individual work that could be
done at home. Homework allows this to happen, encouraging
students to go above and beyond what they do in school. Reading is
the best example, students learn how to read at school, but in order
to get better, they need to practise and that is best done at home,
with the support of parents and at the right pace for the student.
My name is Nur Dianna Bt Che Sharif, as an opponent side. I do not
agree with miss AIN said that homework help students their study.
For me homework give more trouble to student because homework
does little to develop good study skills and students does not ensure
their thought right or wrong.


My first point is Setting homework does little to develop good study

skills. It is hard to check whether the homework students produce is
really their own. Some students have always copied off others or got
their parents to help them. But today there is so much material
available on the internet that teachers can never be sure. It would
be better to have a mixture of activities in the classroom which help
students to develop a whole range of skills, including independent
learning. Furthermore, if teachers want to develop independence in
their students, students should be given a choice in the matter of
homework. Otherwise, theyre not using their judgement and
therefore they arent being independent at all.
My second point is Homework does not ensure that students
practise what they are taught at school. To practise what a student
has been taught requires the presence of a teacher or tutor who can
guide the student if they get something wrong. Homework, done by
the student on their own, offers little support and is only a source of
stress. If confused, the student may only come to dislike the topic or
subject, which will only further reduce their ability to remember
what they were taught.
SORRY to interrupt, I think you have your own opinion to said
homework does little to develop good study skills and you also said
the students does not ensure their thought right or wrong. I received
your own opinion about that. However I totally disagree with all
these views. I think does the homework is not make the trouble for
student, as students, we've all had to do itself and must be honest
to do the homework And students must be confident with answer
they does. They dont need scare with wrong answer because its is
process learning.
In conclusion, homework is helpful than trouble because homework
is a encourage student independent, improve thinking skills and
allow student to learn information. Therefore we should not negative
views towards homework because homework is a one way to
student improve their studies. What is important students need to
know their responsibility as a students. Having presented my
arguments, I once again totally agree on the statement homework is
helpful than trouble.
