The dissertation describes the development of teaching by research in the field of natural sciences and toxicology. In the theoretical part the concept of toxicology is described along with its origin, its subject matter and why it is important for students to be familiarised with this topic. In addition to toxicology, science subjects such as natural sciences, biology and home economics are described.
Another topic covered in the theoretical part is a project PROFILES, which is carried out in several European countries and encourages schools to excite an interest in science subjects by research activities.
In the empirical part the syllabi and textbooks for science subjects are schematically analysed along with a description how the toxicology could be integrated into the syllabi of such subjects. The textbooks analysis will be carried out according to the parameters of Devetak and Vogrinc. In the conclusion a teaching module PROFILES is enclosed. It enables a lesson to be delivered by research in the field of natural sciences in toxicology.
