Project based education, its realization and influence on pupil's learning
Škarková, Barbora ; Rajsiglová, Jiřina (advisor) ; Blažová, Kateřina (referee)
The goal of the diploma thesis was to find out how teachers realize project based education with the main focus on grammar school and biology teaching and also explore the influence of project based education on pupil's learning. Data were obtained by the method of semi -structured interviews, which were conducted with twelve teachers and fifty pupils at six grammar schools in three regions of the Czech Republic. The grounded theory method was used for data processing. Teacher's realization of project based education and the influence of project based education on pupil's learning are influenced by various aspects discussed in the thesis. Part of the diploma thesis is an analysis of selected Czech literary and internet sources of information dealing with project based education. Key words: project based education, realization of project based education, grounded theory, grammar school, biology
From North to South: A picture guide to the forest habitats of Atlantic Europe
Valtrová, Žofie ; Šizling, Arnošt Leoš (advisor) ; Hanel, Lubomír (referee)
In this diploma thesis I tried to show in a way understandable to high school students, how the landscape of Atlantic Europe changes from north to south. I have created a handbook, that can be used in lessons, called: From North to South: A Picture Guide to the forest habitats of Atlantic Europe. In that handbook, we can follow the landscape change on the profile pictures made in 50 kilometres distances. The pictures are complemented by a textbook on Europe's biomes with a climatic specification, characteristic plants and animals and their relationships to the given environment, and the role of a man in these biomes. The main text is supplemented by an interesting information given separately in boxes. In the second part of the thesis I focused on using my handbook in teaching. I have proposed several ideas that can serve as an inspiration for teachers. This guide tries to make an interdisciplinary link between biology and geography lessons, that will enable students to realize the continual changes among particular biomes in Europe. KEYWORDS biomes, landscape, Atlantic Europe, natural habitats, biology, geography
Studijní materiály pro badatelsky orientované vyučování k tématu sinic a řas na středních školách
Introduction of the thesis deals with inquiry-based science learning - from the level of research to its evaluation. The following practical advice summarize information about the possibilities of obtaining natural material for teaching, creating permanent diatom preparations and examples of suitable determination literature for teachers. The main part of this work presents 12 elaborated study materials for research teaching method divided into five phycologically oriented topics: (1) cyanobacterial and algal physiology, (2) biodiversity of standing waters, (3) algae defense mechanisms, (4) cyanobacteria and algae like bioindicators, (5) substances in cyanobacteria and algae and their importance for humans. Individual study materials contain information on the level of research, methodological guidance for teachers with a theoretical basis and introductory questions to motivate students, as well as a recording sheet for students and, in conclusion, own proposed solution for teachers. Another part of this thesis is a comparison of inquiry-based science learning with frontal education, which is done by didactic test.

High School Students' Attitude Towards Biology
Tichá, Natálie ; Janštová, Vanda (advisor) ; Kuba, Radim (referee)
Understanding of students' attitudes is important in supporting their interest toward a particular subject. Students' attitudes toward science have been extensively studied and it has been showed that their interest decrease with age. In the Czech Republic, there are studies concerning pupils' attitudes towards biology at primary school, but high school students' attitudes towards biology are less known. Thus, the aim of this study focuses on high school students' attitudes toward biology and variables (such as gender, age, the most favourite subject and out-of-school activities) which affect them. In addition, the thesis focuses on the students' view of the particular biology fields taught at high schools, from the point of view of usefulness for life, difficulty and the level of attention given to them by teacher during the biology classes. The research was done using a questionnaire survey at high schools in the Czech Republic and the total number of 192 students took part in the survey. The results of the diploma thesis show that the attitudes of students towards biology are neutral. A more positive attitude towards biology was found in girls and younger students. Furthermore, the influence of the most popular subject and out-of-school activities on students' attitudes towards biology was...
Prague Grammar School Teacher's Approach to their Student's Preparation for Biology Admission Exams to Chosen Universities
Hajžmanová, Tereza ; Pavlasová, Lenka (advisor) ; Skýbová, Jana (referee)
Title: Prague grammar school teacher's approach to their student's preparation for biology admission exams to chosen universities Author: Bc. Tereza Hajžmanová Department: Department of Biology and Enviromental studies Supervisor: RNDr. Lenka Pavlasová Ph.D. Abstract: Students' preparation for biology and science studies on the university level is highly influenced by their biology teachers. Therefore it is very important to know the facts about this preparation: for example, how often it takes place, in which ways, which methods teachers consider successful, if they tailor the content of their lessons to the requirements of certain universities etc. By compiling a list of universities providing biology centred programs and by determining the level of applicants' success in these fields, I identified the most popular biology programs. Subsequently, the requirements of admission tests of these programs were analysed in order to maximize the success of the applicants. From these data, educators can learn how to prepare their students. The practical part of this thesis contains a research: I approached 186 biology teachers at Prague grammar schools with a questionnaire survey. Using these questionnaires I came up with the data showing how and under what conditions they prepare their students for admission...

Use of Primate Expositions in Education at Elementary School
Vilímová, Tereza ; Vančata, Václav (advisor) ; Hlaváčová, Lucie (referee)
This thesis proposes a possibility of using the exposition of primates in the Prague zoo during the school excursion for pupils of the 7th or 8th grade of elementary school. The thesis is divided into individual parts that theoretically analyse the importance of excursions for education and subsequently it is practically focused on facilitating the smooth course of the excursion and other activities that precede the excursion or follow it freely. In the thesis there is the general sorting of primates into individual species described in detail and there is provided basic information about primates that are bred in the Prague zoo. Further, possible excursion trail including individual expositions where the particular animals can be seen is described in detail. The main objective was to provide teachers with detailed instructions on how to make the excursion so it is successful. The purpose of the work was also to create materials which help to actively memorize the information provided and to raise children's interest in such an interesting animal species as the primates. With regard to the fact that most primates are currently threatened by extinction in their natural habitat, the theme of the excursion is closely linked to environmental issues and a responsible approach to the use of natural...
Digestion as an interdisciplinary topic in science education
Šarboch, David ; Teplá, Milada (advisor) ; Martínek, Václav (referee)
The diploma thesis focuses on creating educational materials (educational text and educational animation) for secondary schools emerging topic of digestion in human body. The thesis consists of theoretical and practical part. In the theoretical part the following terms are defined: interdisciplinarity, visualization and animation. Moreover, the presence of the topic in the RVP G and analysis of accesible videos and animations, made in relation with the topic, are investigated. Results of both form a base to create educational materials within the practical part. Finally, a chapter about quantitative research method - questionnaire is incorporated. In the practical part of the diploma thesis, the results of realised questionnaire research are disscused. This questionnaire investigated the state of teaching of digestion in human body at secondary schools.

The educational text is devoted to teachers at the first place and consists of basic as well as wider information gathering chemical and biological knowledge, which are related to the topic of the educational animation. The animation itself is put as the attachement on CD-ROM. Both of the...
CLIL method and its application in Biology
Habdasová, Alexandra ; Čížková, Věra (referee) ; Hanel, Lubomír (referee)
CLIL (Content and Language Integrated Learning) is a modern form of interdisciplinary teaching linking teaching subject and language teaching. The work builds on the thesis, in which I created and Science worksheets in English language. The aim of the thesis was to create, publish and verify in practice a complex CD with interactive materials for teaching zoology and supplementary materials for teachers introducing CLIL into the classroom. The teaching materials include a lot of pictures, games and interactive exercises that can enrich teaching biology in primary and secondary schools. This work summarizes the possibilities of introducing CLIL into biology, analyzes each part of the tutorial CD and evaluates the effectiveness by primary and secondary schools teachers. The obtained data were evaluated using a questionnaire survey, which shows that CLIL method in the Moravian - Silesian region is only marginally extended, the main limiting factor for introducing CLIL method into practice is an inadequate methodological support. KEYWORDS biology, science, zoology, CLIL (Content and Language Integrated Learning), motivation, tutorial CD
