Role Models, High School Management and Female Engagement in STEM: Evidence from the Czech Republic
Grosman, Jiří ; Zápal, Jan (advisor) ; Jann, Ole (referee)
Title: Role Models, High School Management and Female Engagement in STEM: Evidence from the Czech Republic Author: Jiří Grosman, BSc Institute: CERGE-EI Supervisor: PhDr. Jan Zapal, Ph.D., CERGE-EI Abstract: The fact that the gender wage gap remains at least in part driven by women's self-selection out of profitable career choices has been an established fact in the labour economics literature. What has been given comparatively less attention by economists, however, are the motivating factors of such self-selection. In this thesis, I design an empirical strategy aimed to assess the strength of a particular driver of differential gendered choices: high school management, and the associated policy intervention. Specifically, I examine the STEM preferences of high school students using population data on Czech university applicants between the years of 2007-2021. By employing both matching and a difference- in-differences estimation framework to facilitate causal interpretation, I argue that school mentoring programmes, and the way the school is being run, can significantly affect the choices made by a non-negligible number of female students - an inference corroborated by the data and my subsequent analysis.

Materials to support the teaching of informatics at high schools
Mazuch, Jakub ; Procházka, Josef (advisor) ; Černochová, Miroslava (referee)
1 The master thesis on Materials to Support the Teaching of Computer Science at High Schools focuses on the analysis of teaching materials for the educational content of Computer Science in terms of their educational aspects. The thesis is based on the hypothesis that teaching supported by didactic materials has a positive impact on the effectiveness of teaching. The main output of the thesis is the design of an original teaching material, including methodologies, which has been tested in practice at a secondary school. At the beginning, the thesis focuses on the theoretical description of school Computer Science in the current educational system relating to the content of Computer Science as a scientific field. The author also presents an overview of didactic resources, aids and their specifics for secondary schools. Considering the extensiveness of Computer Science, the thesis defines Mathematics in Computer Science as the topic which is analysed with regard to the availability of teaching materials. The analysis of the selected teaching materials includes an analysis of the didactic demand of their texts. Following the presented theoretical findings, the thesis contains a proposal of an original didactic material including methodology. The proposed educational material takes the form of a Moodle...
Classrooms with LGBT students: case studies
Vlková, Veronika ; Smetáčková, Irena (advisor) ; Frombergerová, Anna (referee)
AJ This diploma thesis deals with secondary school class groups, where are students with a minority sexual orientation/students from the LGBT+ community. In the class collectives, peer relationships and the functioning of this entire class collective is examined with the attitude towards the LGBT community. In this diploma thesis, the focus is on the entire class collectives, not only on students with a minority sexual orientation/from the LGBT+ community or, conversely, students with a heterosexual orientation/cisgender identity. The research was conducted in the form of 2 case studies, specifically, a questionnaire survey, semi-structured interviews with a few randomly selected students and semi-structured interviews with class teachers were used. The goal of the research was not only to describe the entire class group, but also to grasp the LGBT+ topic more comprehensively and understand the situation that is based on the presence of a student from the LGBT+ community in the class group - from the point of view of students from the LGBT+ community, as well as students with a majority sexual orientation/identity. The research shows that good or functional peer relationships do not necessarily mean a positive attitude towards the LGBT+ community and vice versa. Students in both class groups...
The Organization of Secondary School Skiing Training Course
Růžičková, Sára ; Dlouhý, Martin (advisor) ; Fořterová, Petra (referee)
This bachelor thesis deals with the organization of Ski course at high schools. In the theoretical part I deal with the characteristics of the ski course, the legislation of its organization and the overall organization from the initial planning through the arrival at the course and run of the activity. As part of the organization of the course I deal with topics such as staffing, accommodation and transport, equipment, or safety of pupils on a ski course. In the practical part I focused on state and private grammar schools and with a survey I compare their organization of ski courses. Here I compared whether grammar schools go to courses abroad, whether they accept external instructors, or what safety equipment they require from their pupils. The results of the research showed that private grammar schools are more likely to hold their ski training courses abroad and to recruit external trainers more often. On the other hand, state grammar schools have greater opportunities for renting ski equipment to pupils. A very positive finding was that all schools surveyed require safety equipment from pupils.

Žalud, Martin ; Řezníčková, Dana (advisor) ; Marada, Miroslav (referee)
The main aim of the thesis was to know and understand how pupils of grammar schools perceive the contribution of geography to their personal and future academic and professional life. This aim was concretised and fulfilled through 4 research questions. The research questions are: How do grammar school pupils perceive the usefulness of the different topics in the subject of geography and the skills developed in the subject of geography? How do grammar school pupils see the application of geographical knowledge and skills in their current and future academic and professional life, and how do they see the application of geographical knowledge in professional life in general? How do grammar school pupils perceive the contribution of geography to their future study and working life and how do they perceive the overall contribution compared to other subjects? What contribution do pupils who perceive the usefulness of the knowledge and skills from geography lessons in their future personal, academic and professional lives attribute to the subject of geography? The resulting findings correspond to the following questions. The source of quantitative and qualitative data was a questionnaire survey conducted among pupils in Czech grammar schools. Through the first research question (RQ1), the ranking of the...

MANOVÁ, Štěpánka
This bachelor's thesis focuses on the monitoring of knowledge of climate changes in geological history among high school students. The research was with the aim of mapping the knowledge of high school students. The assessment of knowledge was carried out by means of a questionnaire survey. The questionnaire was first created, then sent online and then evaluated. Data collection took place from January to March in 2022. This work has shown that the knowledge of climate changes in geological history is not very extensive among high school students due to lack of information in school and lack of interest in this topic.
How to work with film didactically in high school psychology teaching
This diploma thesis deals with the topic of how to do didactically work with films in the teaching of psychology at high schools. The thesis is divided into a theoretical part, which deals with the theoretical foundations of teaching psychology at high schools in the Czech Republic and abroad and it also deals with films as a didactic tool for teaching psychology and with selected mental disorders and mental illnesses. The goal of practical part was to create a specific methodology for teaching psychology at high schools using a film as a didactic tool on the topic of dissociative identity disorder, bipolar affective disorder and schizophrenia. One topic was taught in each lesson. To map what students already know about the topic, a questionnaire is designed to identify preconceptions in the field of psychology. In order to map what the students already know about the topic a questionnaire was created to find out preconceptions from the field of psychology. Students were given this questionnaire to fill in before and after class. The answers were then evaluated and compared. With the help of descriptive statistics, it was found out that all students (N=59) were better at answering questions of type "B" at the end of the lesson than they were with questions of type "A". For the "B" type of questions, there was an overall improvement in responses from 59,3 % (N=35) at the beginning of the lesson to 93,2 % (N=55) at the end of the lesson. In the case of question type "A", the success rate in the answers worsened from 74,6 % (N=44) before the lesson to 69,5 % (N=41) after the lesson. In the empirical part, an alteration of teaching is proposed after this finding.
