Statement : The aim of education is cultivating good habits , learning to solve our problems and understanding our environment . I don’t think home helps the students in achieving these goals .Therefore the practice of homework should be done away . It should be replaced by more useful and sensible activities which are more meaningful and children would enjoy doing them .

You can ask them to precede it with their thoughts or add something or alter the whole thing and complete the paragraph . This exercise will enable them to think and write .

Tell them to summit the assignment after correcting it in peer groups .



Give them some more topics on similar lines . Such as - Say no to fast food .
Why are humans superior to other living beings ?
What would happen if we only mugged up the given answers without thinking or understanding them ?
When faced with a real problem in life what skill will help you ?
a . The information acquired so far .
b . Ability to think and take decision .
c . Analyzing a situation and take decision .
Give reasons why ?
Knowledgeable, Methodical, Coordinated, Organized, Well crafted/ articulated
There were changes in the pattern of questions based on the answers given by students since the answers don't always go on expected line . So the teacher should be flexible enough to adapt .
They can discuss the problem with students . Put down the points on board . After the brainstorming they can sequence the flow of ideas in a logical manner and ask the students to write the paragraph in their own words .
