Subjectively described effects of Lesson Study on the professional development of teachers: qualitative research
Valínová, Veronika ; Laufková, Veronika (advisor) ; Starý, Karel (referee)
The thesis deals with a subjective description of the impact of the Lesson Study on teachers' professional development. The aim of the thesis is to introduce Lesson Study as a specific form of teacher training based on teachers' collaboration in improving the quality of teaching through planning, implementation and reflection of lessons. Lesson Study is based on the Japanese school environment, but in the Czech environment it is an unexplored form. The thesis is divided into two parts, theoretical and empirical. The theoretical part, based on the literature, describes the origins of Lesson Study, its gradual development, characteristics and also its implementation outside the Japanese environment. The empirical part then identifies, through its own qualitative research, the subjectively perceived positives and negatives of Lesson Study for the professional development of the teachers who were part of the research. Teachers cite collaboration, classroom interaction, and connectedness to direct student learning as the main benefits. The most common barrier to implementing Lesson Study is the perceived time- consuming nature of the cycle, which is detailed in the paper. The research was conducted in a second level primary school in Prague in the school year 2023/2024. The main research method was a...

It also examines the development of the fairy tale genre and its features, and the characteristics of Karel Čapek's authorial fairy tales. In the course of research of current reading books, it was determined how often Karel Čapek's fairy tales are included in the reading books (from the book Devatero pohádek a ještě jedna jako přívažek od Josefa Čapka). It turned out that the most frequently used fairy tale is O princezně solimánské. The latter was used in the practical part as a text for the use of cross- curricular relations. The implementation was carried out in the 4th grade with 24 pupils in the lessons of literary education, music education, Czech language and national history. Individual lessons were planned in detail, then implemented, then subjected to a critical analysis and self-evaluation. It turned out that the prepared lessons led to objectives that support cross-curricular relationships. The most successful was the linking of the text with the topic of proper noun in the Czech language lesson and the processing of the same text in music education using a specific excerpt from the film based on the fairy tale.

The diploma thesis focuses on the development of reading and writing skills among primary school students. The theoretical part of the thesis describes the specifics of reading and writing literacy and the possibilities for developing these literacies. Part of the development of these literacies involves the development of individual skills related to reading and writing. The aim of the practical part of the thesis is to describe the relationship between the development of reading and writing skills among selected six students from the fifth grade of elementary school. To conduct the research, six reading lessons were designed and implemented during Czech language and literature classes (Muddled Kingdom, Neverending Story, Limericks, Strado and Varius, Wind Mailman, Unfinished Fairy Tales). In these six reading lessons, reading and writing skills were deliberately interconnected and developed. Each of the six implemented reading lessons had a writing output. Through the research methods used (content analysis of student products, observation, unstructured interview), I found that the development of reading and writing skills is closely related. Students who have developed reading skills generally produce quality texts as well. Furthermore, I found that the development of reading and writing skills...
