Diploma thesis - Cyril Štěpán Abstract In the theoretical part of my thesis, I first aim to outline the particular language problems of children brought up in a socially disadvantaged background. I attempt to describe what actually is "social disadvantage" and what are its specifics. Moreover, I deal with the particularity of development of children in such background and with the imapact on communication skills of these children when they enter nursery or elementary school. In the second chapter of my thesis, I write about langugage and communication barriers of children with different mother tongue. I describe and explain the term "different mother tongue". Then I pursue the statistics on pupils foreigners in czech schools and their categorisation to discover the most represented foreign languages in czech schools. I furthermore describe these languages (Slavic language group and Vietnamese) and I point out those linguistic differences of these languages when compared to the czech language that are the most crucial ones in the process of learning czech. In the last chapter of the theoretical part of my thesis, I write about school inclusion of these pupils. I first try to define the term inclusion only to later come up with concrete strategies and possibilities of inclusion of these pupils in czech...

The diploma thesis deals with needs of hospitalized school-age children, attitudes towards rearing of these children and education in a hospital school. Attention is paid mainly to social and educational needs of hospitalized children. The aim of the diploma thesis is to collect expertise related to the aspects of long-term hospitalization of a child and evaluate the reality of the education in the hospital school where the research took place. Firstly, the theoretical part defines the characteristics of physical and mental development of a school-age child. Furthermore, the theoretical part deals with various aspects of hospitalization of a child, especially in relation to his family and school life. In the empirical part, the qualitative research through interviews and observation is applied. It concentrates on how hospitalized children assess education in hospital schools, how the hospital schooling is organized and how the hospital school communicates with the school where a patient goes to. The research has shown that the respondents have a very positive attitude towards education in the hospital school, especially due to the individual approach of hospital teachers. On the other hand, they lack a collective from the school they normally go to. Moreover, a hospital teacher must be flexible in...
Education of pupils of primary school how not to be consumers
Wanková, Natálie ; Krčmářová, Tereza (advisor) ; Stará, Jana (referee)
The theoretical part of the presented diploma thesis aims to suggest a way to encourage non- consumer way of life in today's pupils at lower level in primary school (first school). Promotion of non-consumerism is based on the aims and principles stated in current Czech official curricular documents. The issues connected to consumerism, its formation and consequences are explained. Furthermore, general ways to avoid consumer way of life are suggested. A deeper insight is provided using pedagogical constructivism, with focus on the evocation phase, part of the "E-U-R model". This phase helps to motivate pupils and to discover what conceptions children have of consumerism. For this reason, the theoretical part also provides a closer look at children's conceptions. Considering the fact that consumer way of life is influenced by personal moral values, a section of the theoretical part deals with moral development of a child, focusing on a crucial age of 9-10, when the conception of moral realism changes. The practical part of the diploma thesis suggests a lesson whose main part is a questionnaire, which serves as a tool to determine children's conceptions of consumerism. The lesson is reflected upon and, based on the reflection, ideas for further education are suggested. The results stated in the...

Dimelisová, Kristina ; Poche Kargerová, Jana (advisor) ; Stará, Jana (referee)
The diploma thesis deals in detail with inclusive education in the Step by Step programme, especially with the intention to find out what means and arrangements the Step by Step programme uses to promote inclusive education. The theoretical background is focused on defining the key features of inclusive education, describing developments abroad and in the Czech Republic and showing the Finish education system as a good example of practice. Furthermore, the thesis deals with the brief characteristics of the Step by Step programme and compares its main principles with inclusive principles. For a deeper insight into inclusive education much of the work is devoted to analyse the main aspects of current legislation to support inclusive education, which includes evaluation of support arrangements based on literature. In connection with this, the support arrangements became the focus of the research section. For this reason a research was conducted in the practical part with the aim of mapping a system of support arrangements at a selected primary school with the Step by Step programme and to set out some recommendations for introducing functional inclusive education to other schools. For this research, semi-structured interviews and student case studies were chosen as concrete examples of successful...

The established hypothesis assumes that the pupils who are assessed formatively would have a better attitude towards the subject,...
