This paper provides arguments for the inclusion of project-type courses into the official programme of the pre-service training of mathematics teachers. These arguments are given in the form of 6 theses and are illustrated by using newspaper puzzles as modules for the course. A course schedule is suggested and main features are described. The task of assessing and evaluating is discussed. (orig.)
