Perceptions of Learning: Interviews with First and Second Graders in a Hungarian Primary School
Habók, Anita; Babarczy, Anna
Early Childhood Education Journal, v46 n1 p61-71 Jan 2018
The paper discusses children' attitudes towards school and learning soon after entering primary school in Hungary. First and second grade primary school students (N = 33) were interviewed. The interviews explored the following questions: What are the teachers' and the children's roles in the classroom? What is learning? Where do children learn? What kind of learning strategies do students use in arithmetic and reading? How are students evaluated in the school? What do students like best about school? The data suggest that the children quickly adapt to the school environment and, on the whole, have a positive attitude towards school and learning but--with a few exceptions--their views on the role of schooling in life reflect traditional, school subject centred goals and values and little awareness of the learning process.
