Epcacan, Cahit
Educational Research and Reviews, v8 n8 p405-417 Apr 2013
The main objective of this study is to collect the opinions of Turkish Language and Literature teachers at secondary schools about the Curriculum of the Turkish Literature Course based on the constructivist learning theory. To this end, the descriptive method was employed to collect teacher opinions. Structured interview was used as a data collection tool. Since the majority of teachers were not willing to express their opinions verbally, they answered the interview questions in written form. The study population was comprised of Turkish language and literature teachers who worked at Siirt Provincial Directorate of National Education. Although best efforts were devoted to reach all teachers, only 25 out of the 60 teachers working at the secondary schools located in central Siirt shared their opinions about the curriculum of the Turkish Literature Course in writing. Data derived from teacher opinions were examined using the descriptive analysis method and teacher opinions about the program were demonstrated to reflect a sample of Siirt province.
