    • Dear Alba,
      I am intrigued by your post because It showed that unlike me some people don’t see homework as a useful form of reviewing that days classwork but more as a form of torture that teachers inflict upon students. 
        One thing you said that stands out for me is: But I think homework is actually pointless.” I think this is interesting because many people argue that homework helps students study and understand the concept taught in class more because the sooner you practice something the better you remember it, hence the homework.
        Your post reminds me of something that happened to me. One time in my old school I took your side of the argument as well and decided to pass on doing my homework Friday and wait to Sunday and see how well I could do it. I thought I did pretty well because it only took me about 1 hour but I got to school and everyone was saying how it only took them about 20 minutes. that’s when I realized I was wrong and changed my opinion to stand here today facing down yours.
        Thanks for your project. I look forward to seeing what you write next, because it sure looks as though you did your research and it will be fun to see what else you have strong opinions about… Have a nice day! 🙂

    • Dear Alba:

      I am content with your post, “Should Homework be Illegal?”, because it is a topic that is constantly discussed amongst students. Also homework is something that takes up a lot of time in my life.

      One sentence you wrote that stands out for me is: “They say that since the students don’t have to stress out and actually get to have fun once they get home, they will learn to appreciate school without doing schoolwork 24/7″. I think this is amazing because it shows how school is literally what we do all the time so obviously too much of something is never good.

      Another sentence that I liked was: “Finland is one of the countries with the best education levels in the world, and in that country it is illegal to give students any homework or standardized tests” .This stood out for me because personally I hate tests and think they are the worst way to see what you know since you are under a pressured environment.

      Your post reminds me of something that happened to me. One time me and my friends were complaining about the amount of homework we had. It was taking us forever and our teachers didn’t acknowledge that we have a life outside of school. The homework given seemed like busy work.

      Thanks for your writing. I look forward to seeing what you write next because it proves a point many students agree with. Hopefully it will be illegal to give homework.
