Students Forget Valuable Information Over the Summer. When students are no longer in school for a month or so, they are no longer learning new information or being challenged to discover new things and learn what they ought to learn to maintain a healthy skillset and a well working intelligence. Summer homework helps students work on their own terms and pushes them to get things done with an approaching deadline, and helps them retain the important information they may otherwise forget a few short weeks after they have been released from school. I, for example, am going to be enrolling in an Advanced Literature course and have been assigned two books to read this summer, an essay to write, and several passes from the UPNISHAD to cover. This pushes me to find out more information about the subject matter , and also helps me remember some of what I learned in my last classes to make sure I don’t forget what is very vital.
Summer holiday homework provide a way to be connected to studies during the long time period. Students generally don’t like to study during the holidays, and don’t even sit to study. If this continues to happen, then the student will forget his past studies. And this should not happen. So the homework helps the students to be connected to his studies, beside enjoying his holidays.
