Flatland and student's perception of the fourth dimension
Bouchalová, Kateřina ; Zamboj, Michal (advisor) ; Kvasz, Ladislav (referee)
This diploma thesis deals with the connection between mathematics and literature, two disciplines that may seem distant from each other. The aim of this work is to analyze whether selected students are able to improve their perception of the fourth dimension with the help of the analogy introduced in an excerpt from Edwin Abbott Abbott's book called Flatland. This thesis begins by introducing firstly, the history of the fourth dimension and the way it is conceptualized, and secondly, the author and the book Flatland. The theoretical part continues by providing a description of the occurrence of analogy, literature, and the fourth dimension in the Framework Education Programme for Secondary General Education as well as other sources focused on teaching mathematics. Next, the theory of the general models introduced by Hejný is summarized, followed by the van Hiele model of geometric thinking. The theoretical part of the thesis ends with a description of our limitations regarding the representations of the fourth dimension. This first part of the work stands as the basis for the practical part of the thesis that introduces a quantitative case study which was realized in the following way. Two tests were given a week apart to the fifth-year students of a sixth-year grammar school. The aim was to...
Motivation to read books for first-year high school students
Reichmannová, Nikola ; Komberec, Filip (advisor) ; Starý, Karel (referee)
The diploma thesis focuses on reading, its support, and development among 1st-grade students in secondary schools, taking into account the requirements placed on students in relation to the final exam. Its goal is to outline some possibilities for appropriately motivating students to read in order to develop a positive attitude towards reading, and to provide inspiration for future graduates to engage with the relatively demanding ancient and medieval texts that are typically part of the curriculum at the beginning of their studies. The introductory chapters map the centrally set educational content of literary communication in secondary education as part of the Czech Language and Literature educational field, the position of reading and reading literacy in curricular documents, comparative research on reading, and professional opinions on literature education in Czech secondary schools. This is followed by a section dedicated to selected motivational means and methods that can be used within literature education to strengthen students' motivation for reading books and texts. The thesis concludes with examples of teaching lessons prepared on the topics of the oldest literature and their subsequent reflection after actual implementation in the educational process. These examples demonstrate that...
The Use of Stories in the Language Teaching at the Primary School
Benešová, Marie ; Doležalová, Eliška (advisor) ; Hájková, Eva (referee)
The diploma thesis is focused on the use of stories in language teaching in primary school, especially the Czech language. The theoretical part contains basic information about the method of telling stories, storytelling, its possible use in the Czech language and experience with this method in teaching the English language. To work with stories in Czech language classes, the storytelling method is included in the Framework Educational Program for basic education, both in terms of student outcomes and competencies that could be developed in classes using storytelling. The work is devoted to the process of selecting and creating a story, its placement in children's literature and the criteria that should be met for the story to be accepted by pupils. The space is dedicated to the application itself in the teaching unit and to the offer of specific methods and exercises enabling the inclusion of storytelling in teaching. The work deals with the very process of creating a story based on the listed words for the 4th grade, describing the progress of the teaching unit as well as the reaction of the pupils in the lesson, and the preparation of the control test and evaluation. Due to the limited resources regarding the use of storytelling in the teaching of the Czech language, this work could in the...
A Split Character in Literature and Film
This bachelor's work investigates the concept of dichotomous characters in both literature and film adaptations. The focus lies on specific portrayals of character dichotomy within narratives, examining how the presence of such characters impacts the perception of the fictional world they inhabit. Additionally, the work delves into the broader issue of the distinctions between the language used in literature and film, exploring the scope and limitations of narrative translation between these two mediums. A central aspect of this exploration will be the function and split nature of characters within literary and cinematic narratives, demonstrating how these elements can significantly influence the interpretation of a given work.
The Transformation of the Literary Review in the Age of Social Networks
Kryštofová, Vendula ; Čeňková, Jana (advisor) ; Maňák, Vratislav (referee)
Literary reviews have changed considerably in the current fluid era and are still changing. This is due to new media, and especially social networks, where anyone can become a reviewer and professionalism and knowledge of literary scholarship is no longer needed as it used to be. Therefore, this thesis discusses the transformation of literary reviewing in the age of social media by examining the form, congruence and differences of professional reviews in cultural and social periodicals and instagram posts containing book reviews. The aim of this thesis was to find out what similarities or differences there are between reviews written by literary critics and book reviews posted on Instagram by ordinary users. The evaluation was carried out by analysing several professional reviews and several book posts on Instagram on three selected titles, namely Ostrov by Bianca Bell, Mezipřistání by Matej Hořava and Probudím se na Šibuji by Anna Cima, and then comparing these findings. The research section shows how literary critics and Instagram users express themselves in their reviews, what they consider important to convey, what form of review they write, and whether there is a difference in their final rating. Finally, the final findings of the practical section are formulated, including a description of...
Everything I ever wanted to write but was afraid to draw
Polák, Tadeáš ; Havlík, Vladimír (referee) ; Vlková, Veronika (advisor)
The bachelor's thesis takes the form of an author's book called Pesůňova cesta and is a colourfully illustrated story of a five-day journey of a fictional animal, half dog and half horse - pesůň. In the twenty-seven short chapters of the book he discovers the world and himself. The book oscillates between genres and collage-like changes of form, and it is impossible to say clearly what age group of readers it is aimed at, in the words of the writer Kurt Vonnegut, so perhaps "anyone who might be interested". The work is the result of the author's long-standing interest in the written word, drawing and illustration, and self-publishing books and zines.
