Most Overused Types of Assignments Teachers Give Out in Schoolchristangrant
The Top Ten
I'd rather have math homework than others because unlike most, this type of homework helps me not get a bad grade in a test. For me, they serve as practice for the content I'll be tested on. Other than that, all of my homework serves no purpose. - Kwaysar
Shouldn't even be used at all - christangrant
Fun fact, homework was used for punishment back then. So...I guess they decided to punish all kids.
"The only schools that don't are Preschools"
My preschool gave out homework.
These are stupid as hell - christangrant
Warmups, I would like to crush with a crusher, roll with a sawblade, and then dump them in the Sun for them to "burn" forever. Get it, you cannot burn in space.
WE DON'T NEED WARM UPS!

The stress you already had from homework has been MULTIPLIED!
Way overdone - blackflower
Before test: happy and always comfortable 😊🌹🌹🌸🌼💐
After test: suddenly the world is on fire
There is absolutely nothing worse than having to type 3-5 pages on a topic that you don't even care about. (unless it tells you to tell about an experience with or an opinion on something)
In 9th grade, I had to write a 10 page book report... school sucked back then. Now they have computers... - KingSlayer93316
This is so annoying.
Basiclly I get to see a piece of paper in red ink in my teachers handwriting Telling me I suck at writing.
This says a lot about our society
GAMERS RISE UP!
Or basically what Teachers use when they run out of ideas - christangrant
I enjoy them as I usually do them at a faster rate than other students - Kwaysar
See Crossword Puzzles - christangrant
They stress me out - DumbWays2DieFan
We’re not in first grade...
Even though I get perfect scores on poem analysis assignments, it's a waste of time because I'm not even interested in having a career in the literary department. Heck, I will be in Honors English on my freshman year so yeah... - Kwaysar
Poem analysis sucks just if the teacher only accepts his/her own opinion. Otherwise you can show your personality. - Alkadikce
I hate analyzing them. It's so hard!
I always hated writing them. Whenever I did, I would get an F. And analyzing them sucked! - KingSlayer93316
Projects should be tailored to a student's preferences as they can be fun if it suits that student. - Kwaysar
All projects do are overworking your kid.
In middle school, we had these stupid "dirt" projects. dirt stood for directed independent reading time. I always hated them. they're like book reports, but we make them into something like a quilt on giant paper. they still sucked. one was writing a quilt on a mystery book, one was about an ancient culture, one was about math and science, etc. I wished I could stick my middle finger up the throat of whoever invented them. - DumbWays2DieFan
Very annoying. You come into class and your teacher is like we are going to watch a movie today and the class cheers then when it is finished I will ask some questions and/or give you a worksheet to complete. How annoying Might as well do normally class work. Hate this.
I hate this! You think you are going to watch a movie and do nothing in class and bam! The teacher hands out worksheets. It's way worst if it's a pop quiz about the movie after its over. Because most of the time I don't pay attention in educational movies if I do not think I have to because they're boring. Doing an actual assignment is not as boring to me.I always miss a few because some of the questions they barely mention. Sometimes I don't hear what they said and it's not like the teachers is going to rewind the movie when one person didon't hear correctly. - Chloe21
Well... I'd rather answer questions based on a movie that'll actually help me at a particular subject. But at least the majority of the movies I watch at school with a questions worksheet are educational. - Kwaysar
I hate this - BreakFastBeast2005V 5 Comments
Why do teachers need to know about our personal lives and why do they always give these assignments you don't learn anything from them, screw all types of these assignments. - christangrant
My family is boring. We don't do a lot of stuff over the holidays. So when we have to write this, I basically have nothing to say because we didn't even do anything fun or interesting.
Totally pointless, especially when you are like me and often don't do all that much. - Cyri
Especially annoying if someone went to Australia or something while all you did was play computer games - PiecloneV 2 Comments
Refer to my comment on the projects section about dirt projects - DumbWays2DieFan
Actually kill me - Amaimon
Why do you need to know? I don't know it could be several things I haven't decided. - christangrant
This gets more stressful as you get older because you have less time to decide - Randomator

When I grow up I'm going to be a doctor because my parents want me to do so. The end.
These are fun, when you actually get to use your imagination. It's the only time I ever made a school assignment over ten pages long. We had four days to do it, so it wasn't all that good, but it was what got me into writing. - Cyri
We had to read them THEN ANALYZE THEM!
I like these - Amaimon
I love science fairs because I get to explore different concepts and test them out. - Kwaysar
:O Wow! You guys are so lucky! - kittygirl2
These do nothing good for us. All they do is ruin our summer break. The point of summer break is so we can take a break from all the work that way we can spend time with our families and friends or go on a holiday. Homework was bad enough but summer homework is way worse. Not to mention this also causes arguments. Dear teachers, leave our summer breaks alone. We had enough work at school and we want a break. All your doing is causing arguments and taking away our opportunity to have fun. - HoldenFanatic
At the end of the school year in 8th grade (when I was in it), we were given 3 books to read over the summer. Then, when we went to 9th grade, we had to write separate book reports for ALL 3 books, and it had to be 10 PARAGRAPHS with at least 20-25 sentences EACH!
Also, "Teacher decides to be cruel by giving kids Summer Reading over the summer to come back to write an essay about the book that they probably didn't read" cliche - KingSlayer93316
Who has actually done one of these summer reading assignments? I’ve never done them 😂 - Amaimon
I hate these with a burning passion! Like seriously can you not leave me alone for 2 and a half months? Teachers assign this and then wonder why kids don’t like to read. Well for me it’s forcing books down my throat that turns me away from reading altogether! Look I like reading what I’m interested in! Not some 1600s or mythological stuff. And people wonder why kids don’t go outside as much anymore. - Randomator
2 words: NOTHING INTERESTING
See " What did you do over the [Insert Holiday Break Here] Assignments"
In special ed, they do this. They shouldn't even do this in the first place! Teachers don't need to know where their students live.
Also, if the worksheets fall in the wrong hands, it is very dangerous!
-every student in the school will know where the special ed students live and may come to rob their houses
-The other students may make threatening prank phone calls to the special ed kids' parents
-the other students may use the special ed kids' signatures to sign random things like papers, AKA identity theft
THIS TYPE OF WORKSHEET IS NOT SAFE TO USE IN SCHOOLS!
This kind of stuff is dangerous if it falls in the wrong hands, like oh I don't know, a kid that hates someone, who now knows where they live!
I got a prank call from a class mate after filling out one of these - thunderclanrocks
They shouldn't do this because everybody should at leat know a nights advance so they can study. Even the brightest student can improve their grades by studying. - Chloe21
Greek mythology is cool and awesome. Others are boring.
I though this was used by parents (not mine), not teachers. - Alkadikce
@Alkadikce-my 6th/7th grade math teacher made the whole class did this once.
Ex. write "I will not go to the bathroom during class" 200+ times
My high school special ed teacher did this.
WE ARE IN HIGH SCHOOL NOT PRESCHOOL
AKA the worksheets with 100 math problems that you have to do in a minute. Very common in elementary school
I like these - thunderclanrocks
I acall like making powerpoints - Chloe21
Ex. holidays in elementary school
Ugh, we just did one today. - ShopkinsLover
