Teaching Methodologies and Assessment Criteria The teaching methodology is essentially tutorial in order to develop students' autonomy and decision-making ability. Thus, classes are used for the study, assisted by the teacher, of the subjects of the syllabus. In this regard, the teacher provides students with the material they must study. Three individual tests will be carried out to assess students' learning. Additionally, students can dedicate the period of the lesson to the preparation of the synthesis / practical work, counting on the support of the teacher. In the synthesis work, students develop and deepen a specific theme of the subjects of the syllabus.
Language Portuguese. Tutorial support is available in English.
