ACT Writing Prompts — ACT Practice 22

Many teachers are reconsidering how they score homework. They believe that if homework is meant as practice for students, then it should not be graded. This, teachers say, will allow students to practice and learn freely without the pressure of getting graded down for making mistakes on knowledge they have hardly had a chance to learn. Students would still receive feedback, but not grades. Other teachers, however, have commented that homework is a responsibility of students, and that grades on it help make sure students do it; plus their scores can be compared to track their progress. In your opinion, should teachers stop grading homework?
