    What's your opinion on the Stamp Act of 1765? Extra marks for making references to the American Revolution.

    What is your attitude to homeworks in general? do you think they are a good method to get a better understanding or to improve the skills or are they a waste of time, especially there are students who have no problems with the current the teaching material in school? In other words: does it makes sense for you or is it senseless? If you want to give a reply, don't forget to reason.

    I think that, although it was only in use for under year, it was an important part of British history. The act was obviously very unpopular among the colonies, as well as British manufacturers and merchants, whose exports were threatened by boycotts. I think that the episode that followed the assent of the act played a major role in defining the grievances that were clearly stated in declaration of independence and that it enabled the organised colonial resistance that led to the american revolution in 1775.

    I think for much younger children, below say, GCSE age, they can be extra and unnecessary pressure and we should relieve some of that by limiting the amount of homework that children under the age of 13/14 get. At GCSE and a-level, they can be essential in expanding knowledge outside of the classroom, testing skills that may not be put into practice in taught lessons. If homework is not limited for under GCSE level children, punishments should be a lot more lenient rather than giving out detentions and making kids terrified if they forget homework.

    In primary school children, homework should be no more than one piece a week, if that, kids that age need to enjoy being a child rather than having to go home and do more work.

    Another question: do you think that homeworks should be free in a certain degree? say for being an extra excercise for students who have problems with understanding or got a picture for the teaching (calculations in physics and mathematics for instance)?

    Not exactly. I wonder whether it makes sense for students to make (the given) homeworks, if they have no problems to cope with them. In other words: should it be allowed for students not to do homeworks, if it is obviously they are good enough to skip them? just to save time? to reduce the stress andthe pressure?

    ah okay that makes more sense - perhaps, but thats a risky business as some children may skip the homework even if they don't understand it, or if some students are allowed to skip it and others not, that would make the class a bit unequal and potentially cause divisions.
    I think it makes more sense if students are not given homework at all unless absolutely essential. Like if you give students homework to finish of work they started in class, thats definitely not absolutely essential and doesn't really benefit their in-class learning
