Teaching methodologies (including evalution)

Each program´s component will contemplate theoretical classes, mainly descriptive in nature, that constitute the origin of the theoretical-practical classes used as a space for analysis, the commentary of support texts, the correction of worksheets, and the presentation and discussion of group-works. Also foreseen are classes with a laboratorial character that will solve and correct exercises and experiments by handling linguistic data, under the teacher´s guidance, with the goal of developing relevant competences. The learning evaluation in this discipline will be ruled by the arranged in Rules for the Evaluation of the Higher School of Education of Paula Frassinetti. The continuous evaluation will consider, besides the aspects of formative evaluation, the following elements of the summative one: - 2 written tests (70%: 35%+35%) - 1 group-work (30%)
