My daughter was tasked with writing an essay of her choosing to present an argument for her 4th grade literacy homework. Given the fact that she got home a late from Chess club and still had to have dinner, shower, do math homework, general knowledge homework and said four-plus paragraph essay, her topic became clear.
“We Need Less Homework!!!”
She included in her argument the side of the parent (me) who has multiples, the teacher who need to consider their own personal time and the tired student. She said, “there needs to be a happy medium.” I made sure she presented her argument to me and that she knew what “median” meant. She did. The image above is the first draft, I edited and she made the changes. Who knows, maybe tonight she will have less homework.
