Top Ten Worst School Assignments


The Top Ten

1 Five Paragraph Essay

Highschool is all about the essays! :)
Last year we had to do an essay on William Shakespeare, and Elizabeth Barrett Browning (A famous poet during the 1800s, if you didn't know :) ), she was known for her love poems to her husband, she was compared to William Shakespeare, which is obviously a very high honor. - CloudofMercury

Was assigned one in science and it was ridiculously repetitive about buoyancy and Newton's 3rd law or something. I felt so condescending repeating the same concept in different wording so many times... - keycha1n

I hate these especially when we have to finish the essay for homework. - cosmo

Ugh I hate this! - Pony

2 Science Fair

It's quite easy, as I did an award winning lava lamp for 1st and 2nd grade. During 5th, I was ripped off by some girls, but the award winner was some sort of machine. - Captaincrunch2015

4 Summer Reading

This year we are going to do Harry potter for summer reading - Ihateschool

I never do summer reading but I still pass

I read over the summer anyways, so I don't really see a problem! - music-is-life

Last summer, I read The Great Gatsby, 1984, Fahrenheit 451, Rebecca, Animal Farm, Lord of the Flies, and The Grapes of Wrath. None of which were assigned. - PetSounds

5 Read a Whole Book In a Week

Though to my own credit, I'm a very speedy reader, anything that involves reading is really quite an awesome assignment to me! Unless it's boring or repetitive, no offense to Oliver Twist or anything, I'm sure the story is really good, but Dicken's can be very redundant. I imagine the book could be half as long if all of the "extra" words were taken out! - keycha1n

I can do that, I just skip the words like "The wind blew on the footpath" or whatever. But there mustn't be much homework in that week. - Animefan12

I don't mind this at all. This is easy, since I love to read. - Minecraftcrazy530

I like books though. - Pony

6 Dissection

I had to do this to a squid and a rat once. It was pretty weird. - Onalitie

Think of all the frogs we could've saved.

You think frogs are bad and gross? I had to disect something an owl regurgitated. It was disgusting, it had bones in it. - ToptenPizza

8 Making Models
9 Bring Your Pet to School

My dog would bite, so I would have to keep him in a cage. - Captaincrunch2015

That would be awesome. - Pony

This would rock - Ihateschool

10 Copywriting

The Contenders

11 Presentation

Presentation is just plain horrible. My writing teacher makes us do it for our daily 1 paragraph journals. For the friday journals with 2 paragraphs she actually grades everyone's journals. - Captaincrunch2015
