First Negative’s (Leader of the Opposition)Constructive Speech
Thank you Mme/Mr. Speaker.The resolution before the house today is: 
“BE IT RESOLVED THAT HOMEWORK MUST BE ABOLISHED.”
We, the opposition, strongly feel that this resolution will fall.Before moving on to our points, I would first like to refute some of thepoints introduced by the Honorable Prime Minister 
LISTEN TO WHAT THEY SAY AND TAKE NOTES HERE:
1.Why it’s inaccurate, unbelievable, false, or that you’ll deal with it later in your speech.2.Why it’s inaccurate, unbelievable, false, or that you’ll deal with it later in your speech.
 
Now I would like to move on to some of the opposition’s points.We, the opposition, feel that this resolution should fall for these fundamentalreasons:
1.
First,
homework is a vital and valuable part of education.
2.
Second,
homework helps create independent life skills.
Now Mme/Mr. Speaker, allow me to expand on our first point.
1. Homework is a vital and valuable part of education! 
Homework extends study beyond the school day. Itreinforces what children learn in school and allows them topractice, review, reflect and make new meaning. In thisway, homework allows for deeper learning and a betteroverall education.
We have evidence showing that homework plays an importantrole in improving test scores and grades.
o
According to the Washington Post, 2008, “There wassome evidence that in grades 2 -5, students do better onunit tests when they did short HW assignments on basicskills.”
o
Harris Cooper PhD. did a study and wrote in the Denver Post (2000), “HS students who complete their assignedHW outperform students who don’t do their HW by 69 %on standardized tests.”
Some work is best done at home because students can focus onhomework without the distractions of other students.
 
And now Mme/Mr. Speaker, I will move into discussion of our second pointthat proves why the resolution before the house today must fall. 
2. Homework helps create independent life skills
Homework can also improve time management skills,organizational skills, study and research skills, self-discipline and concentration, create good habits includingreading for pleasure. These are all independent life skillsthat will help a student in every aspect of their lives for therest of their lives.
Also, in some cases, homework might be life changing. Itcan keep students out of trouble by giving them less time tomake bad choices such as even joining gangs or gettinginvolved with drugs or mischief.So Mme/Mr. Speaker for these reasons:That
Homework is a vital and valuable part of education
That,
Homework helps create independent life skills
 And the ones my partner will raise, the resolution before the house today“Be it resolved that
Homework should be abolished
MUST AND MOSTDEFINITELY WILL FALL!!!
