Most Overused Types of Assignments Teachers Give Out in School
Most of these people are 12 years olds who do poorly in school so they blame the school itself.
Get this, it's actually you.
I do all my work, try my best, and make good grades.
School is fair, and if you don't do well it's because of you.
Even if a teacher sucks, you could learn the material online.
Homework is how you practice what you're learning. Tests see how well you're doing and help the teacher. These things are neccesary. And some people can't even get a good education, be grateful! Knowledge is power! Stop blaming everyone and everything around you and realize that you just need to try harder at school. - SheWolfCloud
Wow agreed. People in general should be more thankful that they can go to school and have an education. - DarkBoi-X
Well duh. Literally 100% of people should think this unless a teacher gives out too much tests or stuff, but its usually homework.
Teachers don't particularly enjoy having to grade it, either
I used to get homework every day for writing out my spelling words 5 times and reading for 20 mins - trains45
Ahh! I have an essay due tomorrow and I'm surfing the internet. Odd.
My biggest problem with these is they give you a weird topic and expect two pages when the topic could be answered in like 3 paragraphs - Randomator
Even though I'm actually kinda good at most of these, I hate these only because they usually include a topic I don't care about, especially in English class. - Jasmine21064
How about the fact you have to make like a 2 page essay over something that can be explained in a paragraph or two. - Stalin
Ok, this I can agree with. I'd say we should give them at the end of each semester. - DarkBoi-X
It doesn't even help you with your learning. Nope. It's an inaccurate assessment for teachers to have a broad vision of how well you are doing in a topic. That's it. Oh and it torments students when they get a bad grade.
Gosh I hate tests waste your youth studying on a crappy topic you are gonna forget in a week. I hate tests so much, stress builds up especially when u get a bad grade. This is especially worst in high school when kids start to get jobs or do an extracurricular activity. Also the worst part about tests is when they are on Monday geez waste of a relaxing weekend just studying
The stress you already had from homework has been MULTIPLIED!
Same thing can apply out of school in a good ol' round of Mario Party, lost a minigame because I won the practice round - Maddox121
More like waste your brain power before the lesson starts so you get a bad grade - Yoshidude
More like "Waste all your energy before the actual assignment starts; so you get a bad grade."
These are stupid as hell - christangrant
This says a lot about our society
GAMERS RISE UP!
Easy - Yoshidude
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
What easier than other assimgent - Yoshidude
See Crossword Puzzles - christangrant
They stress me out - DumbWays2DieFan
These were hard sometimes - trains45
I suck at these - Yoshidude
What assignments are about:
Testing what you've learned.
Projects? Yeah no. They test what you've learned, but the grade is mostly on being high quality. I once made a map of Asia, and even though I got everything right, I had to redo it because it was low quality. - Jawsome274
The only projects I liked were the ones that involve the following:
1. Drawing (specifically on paper with pencils and coloring pencils)
2. Writing your own story from scratch (especially when I'm not given a specific prompt. And excluding poetry)
3. Basically any subject that really interests me (which, unfortunately, is rare...)
Any project not including these two usually bore/annoy me. - Jasmine21064
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.
Poem analysis sucks just if the teacher only accepts his/her own opinion. Otherwise you can show your personality. - Alkadikce
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
So dumb. You won't use them in real life.
I spit 'em though. - RobertWisdom
I had film studies in grade 10 and the teacher would pause it and ask questions or explain a part, it got annoying sometimes - trains45
I hate this so much. I always miss like 2-3 questions. Like seriously just let me enjoy the damn movie - Randomator
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
Yep. Typical. - shiftaltkey
Actually kind of hard because on tests and for questions you don't know what to say. I always turn mine into long answers
Refer to my comment on the projects section about dirt projects - DumbWays2DieFan
Actually kill me - Amaimon
I had to do a summer holiday bingo game on my 2nd day of high school and had to ask people what they did and people had to ask me what I did - trains45
These are great! If there's one good way to learn about different subjects, it's about making connections with things you enjoy! - Jawsome274
I personally don't get these assignments. The teacher instead just ask us about our break and only a few gets chosen to tell the whole class about what happened. I'm never one of those students, and I glad about that mainly because I personally don't believe that my class would even care about what I did even if something really cool happened, unless it's about my birthday. - Jasmine21064
Also, these assignments seem pretty much pointless if you ask me. I mean, the teacher is basically forcing the whole class to tell him/her about their break in the form of writing. Whoever does this needs to stop with the assignments and instead just ask the whole class about it and choose a few of them. - Jasmine21064
Ugh. I hate these assignments so much. The worst one, in my opinion, is Summer reading assignments because I'm usually forced to make an essay about a book/article I will most likely not care about and/or get bored from. The worst part is that, if I do terrible, my English grade will drop during the beginning of the year, though only by a little. - Jasmine21064
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
This is stupid. How can they give these out when you won't even be in the same class? - RobertWisdom
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
I want to be a music critic when I grow up!
Teacher: Why that choose a real job - oneshot
I don’t even know what I want to be.
They said you can be anything, so I guess I want to be a plant in the future...? - Misfire
I personally am fine with this. I have no problem telling my teacher(s) what I want to be when I grow up. - Jasmine21064
This gets more stressful as you get older because you have less time to decide - Randomator
Sleep, eat, play video games, and well more sleep. But I can't write an essay on that so I guess I'll have to make something up.
I remember doing a game or asking questions from students on my 2nd day of high school - trains45
I wrote nothing but sat around and got fat on this assignment once lol. - RobertWisdom
Teacher: What did you do over the summer break?
Me: Two words. NUN'YA BUSINESS. - HelloWhyImHere2
Just awful. Especially when they make us do those stupid science boards. - RobertWisdom
I love science fairs because I get to explore different concepts and test them out. - Kwaysar
I made a fake volcano in elementary school
:O Wow! You guys are so lucky! - kittygirl2
I used to stress over this. I wouldn't have finished my assignments because I don't understand it and I was scared because I knew I was gonna struggle. So I tried my best to sneak out without the teacher realizing. - 0w0uwu
This is one of the main reasons why my English and World History grades are barely as good as I want them to be. - Jasmine21064
When you have to answer a question to an assignment before the teacher allows you to be dismissed
Just let me leave in peace.
This is one of those things I wish we had learned how to do more of. - shiftaltkey
I love these, especially when I'm not given a specific prompt, meaning that I can fully use my imagination. I also have tens of story ideas because of this. - Jasmine21064
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
I liked writing these though. - shiftaltkey
This is... really fun actually. - Juni
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!
I may sound like a crazy person but...
WHAT IF THE TEACHER IS A KIDNAPPER AND GETS YOUR PERSONAL INFO?!
Okay, that COULD happen RARELY.
Don't worry. The teacher is who you can trust. Ask if anyone will read those and it will be the principal. You can also trust the principal.SO YEAH
This shouldn't be happening in the first place. I just doesn't sound safe at all. - Jasmine21064
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
Yup. IB goals. - shiftaltkey
The fact that this assignment is now over. - Juni
Curious George gummy snacks - 0w0uwu
I never had to in my special ed class in high school, at least, but I remember doing one in grade 2 and 3 math class when I had to color a castle photo, by numbers by a certain color, like green for 1, blue for 2, red for 3, etc, I can't remember what the numbers color's were, I remember the first time I went too fast and colored the water green lol, 1 year later, I did it again, and I colored the water blue the right color - trains45
@trains45-I had to do something like that in special ed, but it's the mystery picture color by grid type.
My high school special ed teacher did this.
WE ARE IN HIGH SCHOOL NOT PRESCHOOL
Greek mythology is cool and awesome. Others are boring.
I love mythology! - Jasmine21064
@Juni-yes I have. I just like Greek mythology more.
I remember we went to The John Hancock building in the 5th grade and did a powerpoint presentation. It was awesome! They had a great lunch for us afterward too. - RobertWisdom
I like these - thunderclanrocks
I acall like making powerpoints - Chloe21
Depends...if you love maths like I do, then you will enjoy doing them.
I got way to much reading that gets in the way of my memory work, which also we have a lot of!
Just depends what your reading one time it sucked when I had to read a book I hated, - trains45
The teacher gives us way to many and he decides if your point make sense or if "yo gave to little information". Is 2 paragraphs on one question too little for you?!
I hate these so much
What does (insert any random object in story here) symbolize?
In elementary/middle school, I made these out of shoeboxes, clay, paint, and toys. Then after presenting them and displaying them in the classroom, they fell apart a few days later and I had to throw them away.
I am in elementary regina howell ashy is that u chloe this is kiera
I am in elementary school regina howell let me know if u guys r.
I had to do a tale of despereaux diorama.
so I got some clay to make bones for the dungeon.
then painted the dungeon black
then for outside I got a castle and painted it grey
then a cat toy for despereaux
I hate these things. - RobertWisdom
Ugh my SE teacher 👩🏫 game this assignment to all of my special needs classmates eve mwa
I remember my dad forcing me to do this just because I told a lie. It was obvious that it didn't work because, even thought I don't lie as much as I did years ago, I still lie to this day. - Jasmine21064
@Alkadikce-my 6th/7th grade math teacher made the whole class did this once.
I thought this was used by parents (not mine), not teachers. - Alkadikce
Ex. write "I will not go to the bathroom during class" 200+ times
Question: What do people suck?
Kid’s answer: Balls
Real answer: suckers
Teacher’s reply: ENOUGH IS ENOUGH JUDY! that's AN F - XxSEVEREDHUMANITYxX
I used to be good at these in elementary. But then they added complex algebra and then I sucked at math. - 0w0uwu
AKA the worksheets with 100 math problems that you have to do in a minute. Very common in elementary school
Lame - RobertWisdom
Ex. holidays in elementary school
Ugh, we just did one today. - ShopkinsLover
