Syllabus

MODULE 1 PROGRAM: SCHOOL AND EDUCATION THEORIES
The program is divided into five themes, each of which represents an attempt to answer as many questions:
1. What it means to become a teacher.
2. What is the “didactic” task of a teacher.
3. What does the "educational" task of a teacher consist of.
4.. What is the “formative” task of a teacher.
5. What the thinking paradigm of the teaching profession can consist of.

PROGRAM OF MODULE 2: GENERAL EDUCATION
The program refers to the "Introduction" to the National Indications for the curriculum, which indicate the educational directions that make up the structure of the teaching process. Therefore, each teacher is called to know and to act in planning within these directions: cognitive, affective, ethical, aesthetic, spiritual, political, in the sense of "democratic citizenship".
