Teaching method

The methodology uses lectures and theoretical-practical. The first part is based on the exposition by the teacher, based on literature given to students in advance of the main concepts and theories, seeking to promote critical thinking by students, by raising issues and raising their participation in guided discussions.
In practical classes, which refer mainly to the parts of the syllabus for the social vocabulary and social groups, students are called to animate the sessions from the presentation of texts and
documents, which should lead to discussions extended to all the class.

Evaluation method

The assessment consists of four factors: a) participation in general class discussions (20%) b) animation of a discussion session (25%), c) participation in a group work (glossary;
collection of documents) (15%) d) a critical essay (40%).
