  • The teacher trainees develop questions in order to capture the complex situation at their school.
  • In addition to their own questions they receive a more elaborate questionnaire.
  • The teacher trainees explore their school and prepare a presentation of the results.
  • The teacher trainees show their presentation to their colleagues. This way they get a reader with different concepts.
