美眉學校的英文考試有ReadingSpellingGrammarComprehensionWriting等幾個大項,這次期中考的英文作文需寫下對Homework看法的短文,她的用詞不深,不過在這麼短的時間內可以掰出這麼多理由,算她厲害啦~

升上高年級後,不論是中文還是英文課程都要開始寫論說文,也會安排一些辯論的訓練。學校提供不少機會讓孩子學習正反思辯,像是討論小學生該不該上網、釣魚台屬於哪個國家之類的議題,正反兩方事前都必須找很多相關的資訊來佐證。美眉對這樣的課程非常感興趣,上次學校舉辦的辯論比賽個人成積還拿到第五名。

她曾提到班上深藍或深綠的同學很多,這點實在讓人感到很憂心,才國小就已經染上顏色,長大還有機會超越黨派嗎?再看到前一陣子的服貿議題,不少大人因為立場不同吵得天翻地覆,朋友親人之間的關係甚至惡化到絕交、搞封鎖,我們這一代藍綠對峙已經這麼嚴重,要是不改善,到他們那一代恐怕國家已經分裂了吧!我不斷的思考要如何改變這種狀況,從學校教育著手其實是最好的方式,像是安排服貿的議題來討論,尤其要讓原本贊成的變反方、原本反對的變正方,正反交辯,當他們去掉身上的顏色,也看不到對方的顏色時,自然就不會被立場所綁架。

思辨的訓練不是以輸贏為目的,而是學習從不同的角度去思考,最終的目的是解決問題。訓練孩子站在不同的立場去思考,他們才能理解這些爭議的議題背後往往沒有一定的是非對錯,想得更多、看得更廣,才能找出問題的解決方式。只可惜啊~只要是跟政治扯上關係的思辨練習,在台灣的教育系統是不太可能實踐的,頂多只能聊聊對Homework的看法而已啦~

Homework or Not?

60X Axxx Lee

 I’m for the idea that writing homework is a waste of time. First of all, I have to say that students aren’t robots, we are children, and we need some relaxation during one school day, we study at school for 9 hours and 15 minutes! Can’t students just have some time after school for doing their own things?

Furthermore, homework make students feel unhappy and under pressure. To us, “homework” has the same meaning as “JAIL”. If we don’t finish our homework, we can’t go anywhere, but usually, our homework is like a little mountain, and students have to waste hours to do the homework.

Thirdly, does homework really have any meaning? I think that it doesn’t. It is only making students having less sleep and becoming tired. Because of homework, we want to sleep in class, and because of homework, we aren’t paying attention to what the teacher is talking about.

In conclusion, doing homework is a waste of time and it doesn’t make any sense. This is why students don’t like it, and it has the same meaning as “JAIL”. Please keep us out of jail!
