Are assignments and projects for students or for the parents?Isn't the assignments which are given to students more than what they can understand and do? They have to seek the help of elders or tuition teachers to do it. A Ist Std student is asked to write an essay, a KG student is asked to make a Christmas Tree from cardboard, a 4th Std student is asked to explain the plays etc.
Shouldn't activities and assignments be given as per the ability of the child so that they can learn in the attempt of doing so?
I remember my school activities wherein we were asked to collect feathers, plant seeds, make your own first aid box etc. All these we did on our own and we enjoyed doing it, but these days I have seen and observed that kids are given assignment beyond their capability. In this process, they take the help of parents and are bound to lie when they go to school. Indirectly, we are teaching them to lie in the process.
What is your say in this? Do you remember your summer and winter assignments at the school? Did you do it on your own or your parents did it for you?
