Učební styl žáka a jeho role v procesu osvojování slovní zásoby v cizím jazyce u žáků mladšího školního věku Kateřina Smolíková ABSTRACT The thesis deals with learning styles and their role in the process of vocabulary acquisition. The theoretical part characterizes the basic concepts associated with learning styles, their typology and the history of their research, their diagnostics and pedagogical application. Furthermore, some previous research concerning the effectiveness of respecting the student's learning styles in teaching is mapped here. The practical part describes a research survey, which aims to identify students' learning styles and compare the level of acquired vocabulary depending on the way in which the new vocabulary was presented to students. The comparison of the level of acquired vocabulary took place in three groups, whose learning style preferences differed from each other. It was a visual-verbal and kinesthetic-aural group and a group of students without a preference for learning style. At the same time, the practical part also analyzes the percentage composition of the preferences of learning styles of individual respondents and compares their results with their preferences.

The influence of early English language learning on the development of selected language competencies of elementary school students
Michalová, Šárka ; Špačková, Klára (advisor) ; Kacafírková, Petra (referee)
The question of the asset of early foreign language learning is a frequently discussed topic. Following prevailing opinion in society, that ‚the sooner, the better ', the beginning of compulsory foreign language learning is continually shifting in lower grades at primary school. A lot of children have already started with foreign language learning in kindergarten. Researches, which support the benefits of the approach, focus on a very narrow aspect of foreign language acquisition (pronunciation) or survey these facts with a specific group of inhabitants (immigrants). As experts point out, there is no significant benefit of early instructions ascertained in the Czech Republic. However, the research focused only on adults. We do not have any further evidence of the advantages of starting to learn a foreign language early. Therefore, the author focused on comparing the level of foreign language competences of two groups of pupils after their two-year compulsory instructions of English at primary school. The aim was to compare the level of their language competence in English and the learners' potential difficulties by the learners with early learning experience and by the learners without previous experience of foreign language learning before the beginning of compulsory learning at primary school....

Švarcbachová, Zuzana ; Špačková, Klára (advisor) ; Valentová, Hana (referee)
The diploma thesis focused on the issue of coping with separation from the family. Specifically, it focused on so-called homesickness in children of younger school age when participating in a several-day stay at school in nature. The aim of the work was to map the risk factors contributing to a worse experience of separation child from the family and to compile basic recommendations for teachers on what measures they should take together with the family to make it as easy as possible for the child to stay outside the family. Based on a study of the literature and research reports, a questionnaire for parents was first prepared and then submitted, which could help teachers find children at risk, but also draw attention to parents' risky behavior, which could exacerbate difficulties in coping. Records of risk factors were compared with records of children's experience and behavior during school stays in nature. These were obtained through a pupil questionnaire survey and a structured questionnaire for accompanying teachers. The diploma thesis managed to determine the positive activities that parents should choose before the child leaves for school in nature. The results of the research confirmed a significant connection between longing and the factor of previous experience with staying away from...

Čanigová, Gabriela ; Špačková, Klára (advisor) ; Sotáková, Hana (referee)
Gabriela Čanigová Teaching focused on the development of foreigners` language skills - benefits and disadvantages at work with class in Science in 2nd grade ABSTRACT The work will deal with the development of language skills of pupils with different mother tongue and evaluation of the possible benefits of including such focused activities in teaching the whole class. As many research surveys show, weakened language skills in the mother tongue are not only for pupils with a different mother tongue. Adjusting teaching to pupils with different foreigners language could enrich other pupils as well. On the other hand, it is possible that these activities will be too simple for most pupils, which could lead to a loss of interest. Another possible risk appears to be time consuming, which could lead to the need to reduce the scope and possibly the content of education. The research will be carried out in two research groups in the form of experimental teaching of selected topics of the subject Prvouka. In the experimental group the teaching (explanation, work with text, etc.) will be adapted to the language skills of pupils with different foreigners language. Such oriented education will emphasize an increased level of graphic visualization of the content of teaching and creation of space for communication and...

The presented rigorous thesis is based on my diploma thesis that aimed to map the levels of comprehension of the narrative text for students of the fourth grade of elementary school. The thesis deals with the comprehension of the text in terms of listening and oral reading. The rigorous thesis is traditionally divided into a theoretical and empirical part. The first part of the thesis presents the theoretical background of research issues of understanding the read and listened text with a focus on comparing these skills from the perspective of Czech and foreign studies. Attention is also focused on the text properties affecting reading comprehension, as well as the diagnostics of reading and assumptions that are reflected in the reader's understanding. The focus of this thesis is its empirical part, which compares the conclusions of its own research with the results of the three-year research project GAČR - Reading comprehension - typical development and its risk. The rigorous work responds to the conclusions of the above-mentioned research project, which came to different conclusions than international research studies. The main goal of the presented thesis is to clarify the cause of this difference. One of the considered factors is the different level of the comprehension texts. The research...
