Is homework necessary? : A study of junior-level teacher view on homework (English)

Abstract

Homework is often debated in the media today. The question is about the meaning of homework and whether the students benefit from it or if homework is just a remain from an old educational system.

The research made on the subject disagrees on what positive/negative effects the homework has on the students.

For my essay I chose to find out what attitude junior-level teachers have towards homework. Why give students homework? How do you work with home assignments?

My research is based on interviews with six junior-level teachers that either have or do teach in the lower grades (1-3).

The result I reached was the all of the teachers used homework in their education.

The purpose of the home assignments is partly to give the students the possibility to rehearse and fortify their knowledge, especially when it comes to learning how to read.

Another purpose of the homework is that it helps to maintain a good connection between the home and school. It is also a good way for the parents to get an insight and be a part of their children’s work.

The conclusion of the research that I made is that if homework should exist in the educational system they ought to be well prepared by the responsible teacher.
