Learning activities and teaching methods
Dialogic (discussion, interview, brainstorming)
Learning outcomes
Methodical analysis basic phenomena and particular physics textbooks at basic scools, soving physics problems, comparing different ways of physisics teaching, evaluation, relation of physics subject matter to other school subjects, teaching of gifted students, classrooms equipped to teach physics, using IT and other technologies to teach physics. During the study, the student conducts a portfolio of his / her didactical materials (presentations, papers, projects, thought maps, preparations for teaching, photo and video documentation of experiments, video sequences from teaching lessons, aids and experiments database, overview of visits during his / her teaching and pedagogical outcomes at school, overview of all promotional events popularizing the disciplines). This portfolio will be used during didactic analysis during the final state exam.
Didactic analysis of Physics for primary schools, preparatio and evaluation of the lesson, teaching methods, auxiliary tools.
Prerequisites
Basic terminology and rules of teaching Physics, comparison of different teaching systems, documenting.

Assessment methods and criteria
Combined exam

Preparation of study material (basic terminology and didactic transformation thereof, analyzing exercises and their application in practice.)
