Learning methods and activities

Teaching practice is an arena of study, testing, and learning. Through teaching practice, the student will acquire in-depth knowledge of pupils’ learning and development, content, working methods, and organization at the primary school level, as well as gain insight into the teaching practice supervisor’s practical theory of teaching. Through observation, own teaching, mentoring, and reflection, the students will develop their teacher role within a learning community. The students’ teaching tasks include planning, teaching, and supplementary work within their subject of study, as well as participation in other subjects and activities within the full range of subjects.

Writing is an important tool for the students’ learning and communication processes during their practical training. The use of a variety of written documents must be used in the context of pre- and post-guidance sessions.

Working methods and learning activities:

The student should:

  • plan, execute and assess teaching sessions as part of a practice community.
  • test different resources and methods for teaching and assessment appropriate for the grade level.
  • use extensive lesson planning documents as a tool in planning and assessing teaching.
