Essay Study periods should not be eliminated from the senior student's schedule because it gives time to study and do homework. This essay will explain why it shouldn't be eliminated and what are the advantage of a study period.

First of all, some senior students don't have access to a computer and a library to do some research on a project or type their homework. So they have to do their work during the study period. Eliminating the study period would mean that fewer students would have their homework on time and also the quality of the work wouldn't be as good because of it appearance. Also it is way longer searching into books when you want to do a research than going on a search engine in the internet. Also because that searching into a book is longer the students loose interest fast and that is why the quality isn't as good.

Second of all, students are more likely to study better in a calmer atmosphere. Sometimes it's difficult to find a calm place at school. So in order to find a calmer place some students go study at their home or vice-versa. Although the library is most of the time a really calm place some students find it more comfortable to go home were they can do there homework or study in the calmness of their home plus there is less distraction at home so it's easier staying concentrated in what you are doing.

Third of all, the study period is time given to take a break from school. The students can enjoy the fact that there isn't any course and that the students don't have to think about school if they don't want to. It gives time to do something else than homework or study like doing some activities or go eat at the restaurant without the stress of school. Also the study period makes the school less long and it motivates students to perform better during their courses. Students who do not have any time to do their homework or study a test because they were busy the night before or because they didn't feel like doing it can do them in their study period and will not feel bad about not doing their homework or studying for a test.

Last of all, the study periods should be for senior students only. Junior students are not as responsible as the senior students and might cause some trouble because they aren't aware of the consequences that much and also they might use their study period for playing around and disturbing others while they are working. Senior students are more mature and know the consequences for their act if they cause some trouble. Plus the course are tougher in senior years and the senior students have more homework so they need there study period because they wouldn't have to do it all in one night especially those who are into sports.

Study periods is bonus time for home work and for studies. If it is eliminated it will take away that bonus time and then the students aren't wont be as motivated about school and this could cause more drop-outs. Also gives them some spare time to do whatever senior students feel like doing whether it is some homework or take advantage of the break from school.
