September 16 to 22, 2013 Programs – hiccups or adjustments?

September 16 to 22, 2013 Programs – hiccups or adjustments? – My class, my house – Meditate – The Notepad week is a little upset … Sorry for those that it will annoy. Topics of irritations are numerous: the consultation on primary programs, the debate "pedagogues" vs "Republican" reform school rhythms … Fortunately for calm, one can indulge in meditation. Programs: true or false quarrels? For Marie-Estelle Pech, Figaro, "Peillon back on the war program" (although I know that titles are not chosen by journalists). The coming period is indeed marked by consultation of primary teachers school programs. But it will be too soon the establishment of programs of the Supreme Council. it will consist of three members, three senators, two members of the economic Council, social and environmental and ten experts appointed by Vincent Peillon. "A subject such programs can put people on the street," reportedly said Vincent Peillon its rectors during re-entry meeting. And the journalist Figaro trump considering that this could rekindle the "old feuds between the "pedagogists" and "Republicans". "First nervousness. Dear Marie-Estelle Pech, if you want to annoy unnecessarily (and disappointing) taught the ants like me who read you finding that you have measured a notice in a newspaper that is not always, continue to use the term "pedagogist" …. This term, with connotations, was used until the rope by some polemicists who are no more (and no less) than Republicans supposed "camp" opposing. The ending in "ist", it smells sectarian, fundamentalist … and this is obviously derogatory. To overcome strife, should perhaps begin already by not disqualify and caricaturing the positions. This is not the interview with Jean-Remi Girard will fix things. The President of SNALC interviewed by Le Figaro declared title "The idea that the student" built his own knowledge "is absurd" (we will do, too, assuming that it is not responsible for the title ). But after the interview leaves no doubts about the analysis of this union who declares "apolitical": "We believe that Darcos programs implemented in primary school in 2008, are quality, simple and legible, even if they are a bit optimistic. In this line, we expect a refocusing on fundamentals, learning reading, writing and arithmetic, conditions for successful schooling. "And he rebels against what he calls the" madness of skills. " He continues "More generally, we support the concept of building knowledge orderly, progressivity in the teachings and chronology in everything. In secondary education, they are accused "Republicans" to be the supporters of a lecture leaving no room for interaction. This is not the case. We just think that the teacher’s role is to transmit knowledge, not to let students fend face "complex tasks," while "set activities," according to pedagogist vocabulary. "Second nervousness lorssque caricature can lead, if we are not careful, dishonesty. Where have we seen or read that we must let the students "get along"? Where has there been that students built their knowledge in a kind of naive spontaneity and a "laissez-faire" idiot? Constructivist pedagogy that is exactly the opposite! We learn best when actor is not passive. Making the student actor in their learning does not mean to be left alone, quite the contrary. This is to frame it and much more support than in the so-called traditional pedagogy where seems to care very little of receipt by the knowledge that students pour their teachers. It is rather surprising that one calls "explicit teaching," these new clothes from traditional education by suggesting that work competency would be based on the implicit. This is the opposite as it is to identify as clearly as possible what is expected of the student. There is something that escapes me … One can also get excited against that worn threadbare phrase "fundamental". There would be unavoidable knowledge and others who would be secondary and invented by fools teachers to waste time and to intentionally lower the "level"? Of course, reading, writing and arithmetic are essential, but we also know that what engages in learning is when it makes sense and there is a project. For example, we know that one learns best when reading understands that it is necessary to write and communicate. It is not enough to learn by heart so that it is inclusive, sustainable and efficient … As we mentioned above if Le Figaro produced a whole file on the programs it is because the subject will be the order of date with the appointment of members of the Superior Council of Programs .. Hopefully the appointment of its members will not succumb to the temptation of the media and politicization, and that the designation criterion will be the first jurisdiction before the media fame. Furthermore, starts Monday a consultation with school teachers on an evolution of the primary programs. In his column on France Info on 17 December, Emmanuel Davidenkoff reminds us that it would be the third reform in ten years. It also tells us the method: this is a first consultation with transmission synthesis future Supreme Council Program (CSP). Then second visit, this time on the basis of proposals of this Council, for application from the re-entry 2014. Other nervousness reason: we see bloom here and there protests among some teachers. This would be a "false consultation" where the games are already made and which would be discussed in a vacuum and where teachers would be the "turkey" stuffing. What would we hear if we had to discuss on the basis of a text? And do we hear such protests (except those of "desobeisseurs" who themselves were consistent) when the 2008 programs developed really sly were imposed on teachers? Not a "gurgling" of protest … "hiccups" or adjustments? Several recent articles were also devoted to the reform of the rhythms and the (re) establishment of the week of 4.5 days. An article in the Gazette as common on the "First" hiccups "for new school timetables." In Liberation, is also trying to review three weeks after school starts. Another article in 20 minutes reflects the receipt of the reform by the second federation of parents. According to a survey by the Federation of PEEP parents that responded 6,479 members, two-thirds of parents surveyed (68%) do not think that reform rhythms will help students do better in school. All these criticisms so quick and so these final judgments provoke another jittery pattern. Are these "hiccups" or adjustments? In other words, are we able in France to design the "work in progress"? Can we accommodate our French culture in a situation where everything is not perfect when setting up a device? Can we also assume that the republican egalitarianism is not immediate and that if this implementation causes of inequality, it can also generate competition among municipalities through the comparison made by the citizens-voters? If we expect everything to be perfect and equal for all to decide to do, we accumulate such prior it is similar in the end to a form of collective procrastination … and we do nothing … "My" class my house In Release 20 September, we can not homework service
read an article if anecdotal than that. The reporter noted that with the reform of school time, some teachers are forced to leave their room for activities periscolaires.Dans cramped schools indeed the town has "requisitioned" classrooms. Teachers are then asked to give their personal class of the city is the time of midday or the afternoon. And this is not so obvious. She noted that the school teachers sometimes make a slip of the tongue: speaking of their classroom, they say "my room", as they have a special attachment to this place which is much more than office. In this report, three teachers tell the special bond they have with their classroom. a very strong attachment we read and an almost intimate relationship with the place where we spend so much time. So much that it is hard to encourage the return of those "outside". One can wonder about this business experienced a mode if "intimate" and whether individual. And see it as an obstacle to teamwork, co-operation, and ultimately to the evolution of the education system. This is also linked to the fact that very often in this business where we start as in "I" we come to confuse his personality and professional actions. And then comes to consider any willingness to reform as a challenge to his own work and critical of himself. What limits, it must be admitted, the ability to have a critical analysis of the education system. But it must be repeated, we can very well do his best job possible in a system that is dysfunctional … Oooooom … .. But do not get upset us more … It is bad for health. In an interview with the Huffington Post, the Buddhist monk close to the Dalai Lama, Matthieu Ricard advocates of meditation. "Should be taught meditation, under another name, in kindergarten and totally secular manner and completely remove the label Buddhist. Meditation is really a technique. For 30 years, the doctor John Kabat Zinn teaches stress reduction through mindfulness meditation in 300 hospitals in the United States. It came from Buddhism, is now totally secular. ". And he said: "In ten weeks, with three sessions of 30 minutes of meditation a week, we managed to stimulate pro-social and altruistic behavior in children. The results are amazing. ". Breathe deeply … and fulfill our altruism. Even against anti-pedagos and conservatives of all stripes … … Oooommmmm. Good reading….
