Course objectives
At the end of the course students should be alble to:
by own words explain the difference between form and method of teaching
by own words explain the difference between the clasification of teaching methods by Lerner and Maňák
characterize the individual methods of teaching according to Maňák
determine the teaching method
develop selected teaching methods for use in Natural History hour at elementary school
