Why homework? : A study regarding senior-level teachers view of homework (English)

Abstract

In the research made on the subject, homework, there are a lot of differences in the opinions regarding the meaning of homework/home assignments in the educational system today. Do they fill a purpose or do they only create social rifts and injustice.

For my essay I chose to find out what attitude senior-level teachers have towards homework and what meaning it is considered to have on the students learning ability.

My research is based on interviews with six senior-level teachers who all teach different subjects.

The results showed that all of the interviewed teachers used some kind of home assignments in their teaching.

Ultimately, the conclusion I reached is that the homework should be well prepared and given a lot of thought. The homework should also be interesting and meaningful to the students to promote the learning process.
