Your teachers have given you lots of homework, how can you deal with the homework?
Do you spend time cursing and swearing, and hope your dog tears up all the worksheets? Do you prefer to watch TV, and pray that your parents do not discover homework? Do you write nonsense for essays, and write the answers for all the multiple choices without knowing what the questions want? Do you pray that God will help you do the homework? Do you pray that your teachers will call in sick tomorrow, so that you do not need to hand in your homework? Do you want to copy all the answers from your friends?
These stupid ideas will not help you. You are only wasting time to think about skipping homework. You are cheating yourself, your teachers, and your parents by not doing homework properly.
When you need to do lots of homework, you should use the following methods to do the homework:
Firstly, you have to sort the homework by subjects. When you need to do homework from two similar subjects, such as mathematics and science, you should not try to do the in one sitting. You should slot essay writing in between the science and mathematics homework.
Now you should re-arrange the homework by level of difficulty. You should always do the most difficult homework, and leave the easiest homework to the last. The advantage is that you have more energy when you start to do homework. This is the time when you should tackle the most difficult homework. By the time you are tired from doing so much homework, you feel happier that the rest of the homework is easier to do.
Secondly, you should start to do the homework right after your meal. You should not switch on the TV or start to play computer game. Once you do that, you are unlikely to do your homework. It is very difficult to switch off the TV or switch off the computer to do the homework. You will feel guilty for procrastination, and you still do not have the mood to start your homework.
You can arrange for a break after thirty minutes of doing homework. You can eat your favorite dessert. You can make a glass of ice lemonade. You can play or run for a few minutes before doing your homework. However, do not stretch the break. The short break should last only ten to fifteen minutes, do not stretch it to an hour.
Thirdly, when you do not know how to do some questions, you can bookmark the questions, and carry on with your homework. You can return to the questions later. You can also call your friends for help.
You should check your homework, right after you finish every page. Make sure you have not made any careless mistake. You want to make it a habit to do it right the first time, so that you do not have to waste time on corrections.
You want to finish the homework, check all the homework, and put the finished homework in your school bag, out of sight, out of mind. You will feel happier seeing the pile of homework getting lower and lower.
The last tip is, you can your friends to discuss those questions you do not know how ot do, and to check on their progress. If you have done more homework than your friends, you can make some sarcastic remarks. You can boast about your ability to do more homework, and feel proud of yourself.
That will motivate you and your friends to finish all the homework. You can make it into a race to see who finish all the homework first. When you are the first to finish the homework, you can call your friends to make the announcement. You will feel happier and relaxed when you have all the homework out of your sight, and out of your mind. You can turn your attention to the TV, and imagine your friends still struggling with the homework.
Whenever you have lots of homework, please remember that you are not the only one who needs to deal with lots of homework. Your classmates have at least the same volume of homework.
You will feel comforted to know that students in many Asian countries have more homework that you do. Some of them have to do homework until the middle of the night. The result is that they are better in Science and Mathematics than you or your friends.
Be thankful that your teachers give more homework, to help you improve your grades. You can treat doing lots of homework as savings for your future. The more homework you do, the better your foundation, and the brighter your future.
