Selecting the 'correct' method

previous  Top  next

In many cases the organisational structure of a school type determines which method (time limitation, lesson group, and term) should be used. Thus Bavarian vocational schools work with lesson groups while Austrian vocational schools work with terms. Many schools with lessons over the whole school year use a combination of all three methods.


One secondary school with a sixth-form has fortnightly lessons and a change in the timetable is necessary at the end of the semester as some teachers are not available in the second half of the year.





The following pages are intended to describe in detail how these three methods work and how they should be used.
