This study is aiming to establish the training teachers get regarding homework and how/how much it is to be given, and ascertain their views on this subject. The study has been conducted with 56 classroom teachers who have newly graduated in the 2014-2015 academic year and were currently teaching. A questionnaire was designed in order to accumulate the teachers’ opinions on homework. The questionnaire was prepared with questions designed to keep the participants from veering away from the subject without constraining their views. These questions have been formed as “the teachers’ views on homework,” “the necessity of homework,” “the effectiveness/importance of homework,” “courses taken on homework,” “how the teachers learned how much/how homework should be given” and “what disturbed the teachers about the homework they were given as students.” At the end of the study it was seen that teachers were of the opinion that homework was necessary for students to repeat and reinforce their learnings, and to gain a sense a responsibility. Yet they have also pointed out that excessively and pointlessly given homework frustrates students, makes them feel unsuccessful, alienates them from school and even decreases their self-esteem. In addition it was found that they were not taught any lessons about how to give homework and how much of it, and that they have had to learn through their own experiences and observations.

Bu araştırma, öğretmenlerin ödevler ile ilgili ve ödevlerin nasıl / ne kadar verileceğine ilişkin aldıkları eğitimi belirlemeyi ve bu konudaki görüşlerini saptamayı amaçlayan bir çalışmadır. Araştırma, 2014-2015 eğitim-öğretim yılında, yeni mezun olmuş ve halen öğretmenlik yapan 56 sınıf öğretmeni ile gerçekleştirilmiştir. Gönüllülük esasına göre görüşlerine başvurulan öğretmenlerin 37’si kadın, 19’u ise erkektir. Öğretmenlerin ödevlere ilişkin görüşlerini toplamak amacıyla görüşme formu kullanılmıştır. Görüşme formu katılımcıların görüşlerini kısıtlamadan konunun dışına çıkmasını engellenmeye çalışan sorulardan oluşturulmuştur. Bu sorular; öğretmenlerin “ödev hakkındaki görüşleri”, “ödevin gerekliliği”, “ödevin etkililiği/önemi”, “ödevlerle ilgili aldığı dersleri”, “ne kadar/nasıl ödev verileceğini nereden öğrendiği” ve “öğrencilik yıllarında ona verilen ödevlerden en rahatsız eden şeyin ne olduğu” biçimindedir. Araştırmanın sonunda öğretmenler; ödevlerin öğrencilerin öğrendiklerini pekiştirdiği, tekrar etmesi açısından gerekli olduğu, öğrenciye sorumluluk duygusu kazandırdığı yönünde görüş belirtmişlerdir. Ancak sayfalarca ve amaçsız verilen ödevlerin öğrenciyi yıldırarak başarısızlık duygusu yaşamasına, okuldan soğumasına hatta kendisine saygısının azalmasına kadar götürebileceği görüşünde olduklarını belirtmişlerdir. Öğretmenler ödevlerin; bunaltıcı ve sıkıcı olmaması gerektiği, çocuğu yormayacak şekilde olması gerektiğini söylemişlerdir. Verilen ödevlerin veliler tarafından yapılmaması gerektiği de dile getirilenler arasındadır. Ev ödevinin gereksiz olduğu düşüncesi en az ifade edilenler arasında yer almaktadır. Bununla birlikte öğretmenlik eğitimleri boyunca ödevlerin nasıl ve ne kadar verileceği konusunda her hangi bir ders almadıkları,  kendi deneyimleri ve gözlemleri ile ödev vermeyi öğrendikleri sonucuna ulaşılmıştır.
