Handouts[edit source]

Handouts for pupils have to be conveniently printable. The course should not assume that the pupils have access to computer terminals during the course. Optional material can make use of interactivity. Handouts should use {{Page-break}} for page formatting.

Didactic approach[edit source]

Deduce-it-yourself strategy[edit source]

The course allows the pupils to develop their own ideas before a concept is used in the course in a more inflexible context. This can take the form that participants are asked to develop a concept in relation to their own peers before a concept is used in relation to the assistant teacher program. At the end of the course the pupils are invited to write their own book about their assistant teacher effort, which again requires them to reflect on their goals and to be creative with respect to their understanding of the assistant teacher office. One could see this as the (initially unintended) attempt to apply constructivist didactics to the creation of an assistant teacher effort by allowing the pupils to invent their own procedures and didactic methods for the effort. One of the goals of constructivist didactics is that pupils learn how to learn by giving them the training to take initiative for their own learning experiences.
