Course Aim
To give the students
- practical knowledge and experience of teaching in physics and chemistry.
- knowledge of how to connect the theory education to the classroom.

The student shall take responsibly for plans and to realise an education part in physics and/or chemistry. The students shall observe there pupils, discuss physical education with other teachers and make a report about physics and/or chemistry education in school.

That together with his/her supervisor and the staff the school discuss didactic and other questions to get an knowledge of different tasks concerning the work in a school how to teach pupils..

For the examination the basis will be
