Your friends probably think you’re nuts when you say you hate English homework. That’s an understandable reaction—English homework is supposed to be easy. You can’t stand doing it. Maybe it’s because of the repetitive nature of the assignments (If you must underline one more gerund, you will flip a table, right?). Maybe it’s the infinitely boring assigned readings.
Whatever the case, English homeworks bug you and you would rather eat bath beads then do them. Well, here’s some ways to survive doing English homework.
Advice for Completing English Homework Without Much Effort
Get It Out of The Way.
There is nothing worse than procrastinating your entire evening away, then falling asleep only to realize at 11:27 pm that you forgot to do your English homework exercises. Depending on the difficulty, you could have knocked them out in under two hours after school and gotten on with your life without a care. Now you either will lose sleep to finish the homework, and poorly, or you will blow it off and try to do it in the morning or during other classes or lunch (and still poorly).
Keep electronics off or on vibrate until you have finished. You hate English homework, but prolonging it by allowing interruption after interruption occurs will make you hate it even more.
Read Instructions Thoroughly.
You want to finish these exercises as quickly and painlessly as possible, right? Well, you should take the time to read the instructions. This is an obvious tip, but you’d be surprised how much time is wasted, particularly for more difficult English assignments, when you just go right to work and keep referring to instructions.
Keep English Notes on Hand.
Are you correcting sentences? Rewriting paragraphs? Do you know how to correct the exercises, but not the “what” or “why”? Always have your notes nearby, because the names of different sentence parts or grammar rules are more than likely there.
So, frustrated student, keep all of this in mind as you try to knock out that annoying English work. Click the link for additional reading and homework tips.
