What is a syllabus and what is it useful for?

Syllabus is the thought process of teaching and serves to outline the curriculum in a given subject, in our case always for the six-month school period. The syllabus is filled with topics that are to be covered in the subject during the given six months. Among the optional assignments, there is always "student's choice", where the student's creativity can be exercised and where the student can, after consultation with the professor, work on almost any topic in any form. The assignments therefore form a progressive column in the syllabus. Next to this column, you will find the forms of assessment of specific topics (e.g. independent work, quarterly work, etc.) Below the syllabus table are additional tables with information on course progress in the subject (green table), evaluation for a certain task (first blue table) and evaluation on report card (last table). You can read about the types of evaluation on the MARKING SYSTEM tab. 

Thus, the syllabus introduces us to the structured topics that await us in the given semester, offers mandatory optional papers for self-development and describes the possibilities of achieving assessment levels. At the beginning of the year, the teacher presents each syllabus in an individual subject and consults with the students.

The Assignments

Compulsory assignments that we can't change much about usually include tests, exams, case studies, and other similar types of work that confirm that we've learned something and can move on to the next topic.

Optional assignments, of which the number varies depending on the subject, include, for example, presentations, brochures, essays, posters and other more creative and entertaining forms of work.

If you are interested in other forms in which assignments can be completed, or if you want to see specific examples of assignments that students have created, take a look at the PROJECTS INSPIRATION tab.
