This is a persuasive text, also known as an exposition written by me! My sister helped me with some of the wording but I did most of it myself. Once you have read this, please comment and advise me of the things I need to improve (negatives) and the things that I did quite well (positives)…Children must, undoubtedly, receive homework and complete it. Doing this will enable the child to consolidate their school work at home. It can also let the parents know what their child is doing at school. Homework allows the child to think individually, with only their parents to help at home. Firstly, children should receive homework, so they can practise their school work at home. A child will probably not have enough time at school to absorb what he/she was taught, so completing tasks at home will ensure the child understood what he/she was told in the classroom. At home, the child has more time to be taught individually. If a child is given homework, it is almost like home education, which can be better for learning experiences because the child has more time to think about it. Furthermore, if children bring homework back from school, the parents/guardians get a more up-to-date and accurate view of the kind of work their children have done during the day at school. They also can see what their attitude towards work is. This is much better than the semester school report which gives results based on tests but it may not be an accurate reflection of the child’s understanding of his/her work. Finally, homework allows individualism. At school, you could simply plagiarise work from other students and although this method may guarantee top marks, it does not help you or your knowledge in anything at all. When you complete tasks at home, there is no one to copy from; only your parents to help you. Overall, it is very beneficial for children to receive homework, so they can learn at home as well as at school.
I hope you like this text very much!
