Homework is important because it allows me to practice the things I am learning at school. It can sometimes help me get ready for the next few days at school. I learn to use resources, such as libraries, reference materials and encyclopaedias. I can explore subjects more fully than time permits in the classroom. Homework teaches me to work independently, encourages self-discipline, responsibility and a love of learning. Homework can also bring my parents and teachers closer together as my parents learn more about my education and my school. Homework teaches me to manage my time and to do things on time. Homework teaches use my mind, so I may be prepared for further learning at school and in the workplace. Homework teaches me to read and listen to instructions carefully and to keep track of time and not spend too much time on any one question when not necessary.
Handing homework in on time is important because homework is given for a reason and what ever the reasons, guidelines and respect for the person who gave the homework should be shown.
Time is important to us all and the misuse of it can sometimes be a burden to us in the long term. Using out time wisely and understanding deadlines of time is important in life and the younger we learn this the better we will become and the more organised we will be. We should also understand that to be given a task to perform by a certain time and not to do it can create a wide range of issues for all people involved.
It is possible the person giving the task could become concerned that they are not being respected or listened to.
It is also possible the person doing the task needs reorganise theirs and others normal activities, which can be very stressing to all involved.
