If getting up early every day to go to school and having to stay there for hours is cruel, then bringing a bit of school home with you at the end of the day is just prolonging the torture! Unfortunately, homework is something we all have to suffer. Until someone comes up with this brilliant invention.
Whistle While We Homework. If such a machine did exist, then all that time normally lost to homework could be reclaimed. No longer would you have to endure the last-minute homework rush on Sunday nights, or valuable TV time being held to ransom by parents who insist that homework comes first. But how would it work?
You could invent a duplication machine and create a second ‘you’ to do the work. Although you might have a strike on your hands when the other ‘you’ realized the fun he/she was missing out on.
You could go for the more traditional method, and bribe a friend or sibling to do the work for you. (Warning: this could be rather expensive.)
Some teachers and politicians believe that a type of homework machine already exists: the internet. But even the internet can’t do everything you want it to, and it certainly can’t imitate your handwriting.
The main problem with the methods above is that you wouldn’t actually learn anything, which would become a problem in lessons and exams. A really clever machine would incorporate a Know-It-All Hat so that your brain wouldn’t miss out on the learning, just the hard work!
Web of deceit: The internet may be able to help you with your homework, but don’t rely on it too much. It is reported that only 90% of the information on the web is true, so you should always double-check your facts. Stick to websites designed for schools to be on the safe side.
It you add up all the hours you put into doing your homework, by the time you leave school you will have clocked up months! Now it’s your turn to set the homework. Write a quiz for your teacher too. Ask them the questions you think EVERYONE should know the answers to, and when they’ve completed it, grade them and set them another one for next week!
