The article deals with the opportunities presented by pedagogical constructivism in teaching the Czech language. The author briefly outlines the implicit links between traditions in Czech pedagogy and the rationality of pedagogic constructivism. The benefits of a professional approach to children’s pre-concepts are documented through two specific topics: the curriculum on sentences and the curriculum on verb tenses. In the conclusion she defines the conditions which are a necessary prerequisite for the professional work of a constructivist-oriented pedagogue teaching the Czech language.
