English Homework

I am not sure if this is fortunate or unfortunate, but it really seems that this semester I will get a lot of work for English class.

My teacher gives (unmarked) homework almost every day, and if I were to put an honest effort into these homework, I'll need to spend about 30-60 minutes per day doing them. I also need to have two journal entries every week, and depending on the topic, I will need to spend perhaps two to three hours on each entry. That's a minimum of 6.5 hours per week!

And, of course, when the essays, presentations, and speeches come, the amount of hours spent on English class will just sky- rocket.

This amount of work is definitely higher than that of last year. In grade ten, I don't remember having to spend any time on English except when the assignments were almost due. Even though I did spent a lot of time thinking about what I was going to write for English, I definitely didn't have to spend a lot of time on the actual writings.

So, with this huge increase in the workload, I'll certainly have to manage my time a lot better.
