Never Overload Yourself With Academic Homeworkby Andy Wilson Assignment Helpers Australia
It’s very often when I see students struggling with loads of homework. They get frustrated and eventually end up with able to do nothing. This happens a lot when the student moves to higher classes and the workload multiplies as now there are many teachers. They all want their respective homework to be done on time and ignores the fact that students also have the same amount of assigned work from other teachers. These tasks and papers play with the sleep cycle and diminish the focus ability of a student. In turn, the student isn’t able to perform better in tests.
Few Essential Tips to Minimize Overload
Here I am providing you with some tips to follow and let students have a better learning experience. These steps are majorly focused on teachers, however, parents can also follow and be a helping hand.
Don’t assign large assignments
When students are new in a higher class, they aren’t familiar with large assignments. When they see a big topic and the due date is not so far away, they find themselves in the spot where their ability to focus is just lost. This can also be understood as students get nervous to divide a big topic into subtopics.
Teachers can assign the sub-topics and it will be easy for the students. You can also assign a reasonable amount of topic on a per-day basis. I should point out that these daily deadlines will take away a lot of stress and students can focus better on their academics.
You can also add a clause of providing an extended deadline or the second chance once in a while. Students may not be able to complete a topic within the given time and it will increase their mental pressure. When they know that they can complete it even after the deadline, they will be able to focus more and prepare a better research paper or any other assignment they have been working on.
Understand your students
I think it is very important to know and understand your students on a personal level. There are many students that have hyperactivity disorder in which they aren’t able to focus easily, teachers should know about it. The assignment should be given in an environment that has minimal distractions. You can also provide these students with lecture notes so they can tally from their notes in case they have missed something.
Few tips for students
Here are some tips for students so they can easily deal with all the assignments.
I know how big social media can be a distraction. Try to set time limits and don’t allow yourself to go even anywhere near to your phone. This will help a lot and you can reward yourself with a 15-minute break after completing a topic.
You can also give yourself a full day in a week where you can meet friends, go to parties, and just chill.
You should also try to pick an interest of yours and perfect is as much as possible. Building a productive hobby such as photography, dancing, etc. will provide a good relaxing time rather than investing your time to learn multiple things.
In an exam, you should uninstall all the social media distractions. This can help in getting better results.
On an ending note…
Burdening a student with piles of homework is never a way to provide him/her with a good learning experience. These tips that I compiled may be a great way to estimate the student’s capabilities. Eventually, it will help the teacher to get better results out of it. Teachers must also understand the overall burden rather than just focusing on their own subjects.
