I think that teachers who assign difficult wordsearches as homework or class work should reevaluate their teaching styles. I am sure by now, they should realize that not all students excel at them. And really, they are a waste of time. For someone who has difficulties spelling words, the "near words" on the puzzle are confusing. And really, that is not way to learn a spelling word. The time it takes to do a large difficult puzzle...is a just taking time away from more productive endeavors. Furthermore, giving a grade for a wordsearch. is also ridiculous.
