Abstract [en]

The aim in this essay is to investigate students’ attitudes to homework in grade six, and closerstudy the attitudes of the students who think homework is difficult and boring. I have chosento investigate and find out why homework is perceived as boring and cumbersome for somestudents in sixth grade. I hope to identify the aspects that contribute to the negativeconsequences that arise in connection with the homework. The following questions are usedto make the study: Do some students experience homework as boring and difficult? Do somestudents get any form of support at home, if so, how do students perceive the support fromhome? How do students feel that homework affects their leisure?What is the reason that the homework is perceived as difficult and boring according to thestudents? How should the shape of homework change according to the students who believethat homework is difficult and boring?

I have chosen to do the study with older students who have more experience with homework.I used both qualitative and quantitative methods, those are interviews and questionnaires. Ichose to focus only on those students who have a negative attitude to homework, which iswhat interested me most. The result was shown in both the questionnaires and interviews thatthe majority of students feel that homework is boring and difficult. It has been shown thatstudents in the interview have a very positive attitude to short and personalized homework.The students believe that other forms of homework, such as experimenting, cooking, solvingcrossword puzzles would be more fun to do. All students believe that they could managedifficult homework if they were more interesting and fun.
