Homeroom Teachers ‘ Ideas about Teenage Classes

The article discusses the problem of the influence of the school class on personality development. The study of the school class as a factor in the development of the pupil's personality can be deployed in various ways and in various aspects. This article presents the results of a study devoted to one of the aspects of the analysis of a school class as a factor of the pupil's personality development: the study of ideas homeroom teachers have about their classes. The study was conducted by means of a questionnaire, which was completed by homeroom teachers of various localities of the country. The result of analysis of the ideas homeroom teachers have about teenage classes shows that the pupils are not autonomic enough because they rarely run activities on their own, according to the homeroom teachers. Teachers also note that the pupils do not always take part in joint activities in full occupancy. The teenage classes appear to have inner conflicts and problems in interpersonal relationships. Although students in these classes participate in activities of social benefit, they do not offer such activities themselves. Interesting creative ideas are often offered by children when conducting joint activities rather than when planning them, according to the teachers. Almost every class has its own group chat in the social network, but it is not used during the preparation of joint activities. Overall, the homeroom teachers describe their classes with positive qualities. A study was conducted for the first time in classroom leaders about their teenage classes. The listed and briefly analyzed results require further detailed consideration to identify their causes and possible ways to minimize their consequences.
