Expanding the Vocabulary of Roma Pupils in the Second Level of Primary School
Kráčmarová, Drahoslava ; Šebesta, Karel (advisor) ; Janovec, Ladislav (referee) ; Chejnová, Pavla (referee)
The work deals with the acquisition of vocabulary in the period of advanced language development in second-level primary school pupils from different socio-economic and socio- cultural backgrounds. The theoretical section summarises the basic findings as well as the existing empirical research, focusing in particular on the influence of the family environment of the individual on his/her linguistic development. It provides a complex picture of the education of Roma children in the Czech Republic at this point in time. The investigative section presents independent research into the vocabulary of pupils, with regard to selected word groups in the acquisition corpus SKRIPT2015. The texts of pupils attending schools in socially-deprived areas, or in areas under threat of social deprivation and with a strong Roma presence, are compared with the texts of pupils attending average schools. On the basis of this comparison, a picture emerges of the impact of different socio-economic and socio-cultural environments on the written language of pupils, as well as the effectiveness (or lack thereof) of the existing support mechanisms provided by educational institutions. KEYWORDS acquisition of language, advanced language development, expansion of vocabulary, education of Roma children, acquisition corpus, SKRIPT2015
Teaching rhetorics on secondary school. Present state and future perspectives
Potůčková, Marie ; Chejnová, Pavla (advisor) ; Vlčková, Jana (referee)
This thesis deals with various approaches of secondary school teachers and students to the rhetoric and the teaching of communication. The main purpose of the thesis is to map how students see the quality of their own communicative skills and the quaility of communication classes and the attitude of teachers to including communication in their classes. Attention is also paid to the development of communication teaching methods. The survey was carried out at seven Prague secondary schools mainly by using questionnaires. Data were also collected during interviews and when attending classes. The survey suggests that both students and teachers consider the teaching of communication a necessary part of Czech language and literature lessons and have a responsible attitude to it. Students are more critical to their own speech than their teachers. They have quite a good knowledge of the theoretical basis of rhetoric and communication but they have problems applying the theory in practise. Teachers prefer professional, clear and attractive textbooks of communication. As for the future of the subject teachers are of the opinion that it should become an inseparable part of all subjects, i. e. of comprehensive education. KEY WORDS rhetoric, teaching of communication, communicative skills, speech, discussion

Slowik, Miroslav ; Čermák, Petr (advisor) ; Pešková, Jana (referee) ; Chejnová, Pavla (referee)
The thesis is concerned with the definition of the speech politeness as a unique pragmatic system which is specific for each language community and which creates in speakers a pragmatic habitus or an abstract model for culturally speech behavior, manifested as a polite speech norm in geographically and time-limited context of a linguistic market. In the practical part, the thesis deals with the comparison of the language devices used by Czech and Spanish speakers to maintain the safe relationship with the addressee in order to achieve a successful socio-economic exchange.

Media Education in Textbooks and Teaching Materials for Primary School
Pokrupová, Kateřina ; Chejnová, Pavla (advisor) ; Holanová, Radka (referee)
The central theme of the diploma thesis is incorporation of media education at the first stage of primary school. The theoretical part of the thesis briefly defines the basic concepts related to media education, offers an insight into historcal background and gradual integration of media education into the Czech educational system and, last but not least, introduces current state of this cross-curricular topic at Czech schools. The practical part is devoted to a research survey aimed at finding out which didactic topics of media education are mostly reflected in educational materials intended for the first stage of primary school and at the same time at ascertaining how the pupils are mostly involved in media education in terms of task assignments contained in teaching materials. The results of the research show that the most frequently reflected topics of media education that appear in educational materials are advertising, its regulation and influence and characteristics and function of traditional media. In case of the method of pupils involvement in media education, the research findings show that pupils are mostly called upon to receptive activities. To obtain the results of the research survey, qualitative content analysis of selected teaching materials was used.

Dvořáková, Jana ; Chejnová, Pavla (advisor) ; Hájková, Eva (referee)
The thesis examines the issue of gender in textbooks. The aim of the thesis is to analyse three sets of Czech language secondary school textbooks and ascertain, whether these textbooks contribute to the propagation of gender stereotypes in the society or whether they do not. The thesis is divided into a theoretical section and an empirical section. The theoretical section firstly explicates the fundamental concepts of gender, secondly focuses on the discrimination of women via language and on other topics from the field of gender linguistics. The last chapter of the theoretical section focuses on how gender stereotypes influence schooling. The empirical section encompasses the aforementioned analysis of the selected Czech language textbook sets. The analysis further investigates the manner in which men and women are represented in the curriculum, how men and women are portrayed in the illustrations, if the linguistic means are gender-balanced, and also whether the textbooks include any gender linguistics topics. The results of the analysis show that in all textbook sets, men are the dominant gender in illustrations, as well as among significant figures and authors of literary excerpts.
