In: The Educator CEL For teachers review teaching techniques> class organization> work plan in December 1957, the Group of the Upper Rhine is likely responsible for organizing the Congress of Modern School 1959. This means that activists of this department will, during the coming months to prepare and take certain positions that it is essential that we are well agree.
That’s why I think it necessary to make these few developed to an important letter from our friend Chatton: “I have to speak, he writes some articles in the Educator; I know that above all a question of “youth” in the movement, and that although they often speak with passion and enthusiasm. They are delighted to see the new atmosphere in the classroom and they see life in pink. In their enthusiasm, they write reports that all is well, when everything is fine, still fine.
I think we should warn against excessive optimism, since they may induce other “youth” in error. We must have the honesty to recognize our weaknesses. The educator must be a working body, a magazine where we exchange ideas to better do our job. So I do not think the article Nadeau.
The experience proved to me that it is impossible for a child to study; A subject of History, – science – geography in the week, for a simple reason: the time allotted to them by the member is insufficient, a child is not working at the pace of an adult, and then there are all the occupations which I will call accessories; Text work, gymnastics, outings. I tried many years, el that is why we changed the work plan.
Only students in FE 1 and 2 working on full sheets came to study three subjects in the same week. I’m not the only one doing that finding. “Until Nadeau informed, brings his explanations, I think it necessary to provide clarification on this issue Work Plans – which is not yet developed, and is far from over development that will certainly in the years ahead. The organization of the School on the basis of work plans is certainly great future solution. Some preliminary observations.
We have more for the development of our technology, the spirit of a number of our comrades on exaggerated wisdom of solutions that are fallback positions which we will always have time to use if necessary. It is the enthusiasm that is contagious, more than prudence and reason. It is necessary that newcomers experience this shock which spoke Chatton, they feel that this creates new life of the class that changes their behavior and that of their children.
The main thing is to give life to discover that life, to illuminate our pedagogy; This is the ray of sunshine, evening, lights suddenly a landscape that shade made anonymous. It was after, when we have felt that shock, that we will develop our techniques according to our possibilities, but without losing the treasure of life that we have discovered. We fear too that by taking the opposite path, we did not go out of the conservative scholastic method and discovered that we no longer life.
We never concealed any of our difficulties and our shortcomings. It is, indeed, an indispensable condition of our http://homeworkmarket.me/
progress. What we need to say most is that there are fortunately still in France a number of schools, especially in the countryside, where our comrades can operate under normal conditions, and they tell us a great satisfaction.
They leave their post to go to town, we hear then their tragic complaints we often are echoing. I can assure that Nadeau not exaggerating, and that all the comrades who are in his case could imitate safe. Nadeau can he realize the work plan exhibits?
Surely, otherwise he would not have done similar report. I think we are here in the presence of a misunderstanding I want to clear up. We never pretend to think that children can, on a one-hour or an hour and a half a day, process thoroughly, among other things, three subjects (history, science, geography). If it were so, it would be that, in the scholastic tradition, every child should study the entire chapter planned in the program.
But then we fall back into practice scholastic lessons to study. And we put our comrades on guard against a work plan that would, ultimately, a plan homework and study lessons. We are against any unnecessary work. We believe quite irrational that 10 students study each thoroughly the same problem.
This problem is the class that studied by sharing the work. If our program has historical moment today as Gaul, we will enter the table four or five additional subjects, provided elsewhere in our plans guide: How the Gauls dressed, sheltering, fought, ate, if governed. Each student (or group of students) chose the study of choice is already limited. Suffice it to provide reports that the master will synthesize this synthesis is as a lesson made retrospectively and not a priori.
The subject itself is not necessarily fully excavated. Who said worktop said work is to say, constructive activity of research and experience. It is totally canceled the child in his notebook copy some pages of books that absolutely does not understand.
I much prefer that simply make a model, or he does an experiment. This scale model and this experience will certainly a primer to the complex study; they will open the mind to understanding the experience of comrades and master additional details. I would add that a work plan could not be valid if the child could not normally meet them. Such a plan of work, as in business, would be a technical error.
We benefit, to the evolution of our modern school, to give up more and more at work plan at the expense of collective work. I think we can reach some kind of part-time school formula: the morning is devoted to especially group work: free text, printing, hunting words, grammar, living calculation; the afternoon with two hours on a map, in which the teacher helps and advises; and an hour of reports and conference proceedings.
To get to the new design of the school, we need to more thoroughly prepare our work tools, History, Science, Geography. Most of the time, children can not accomplish their plan because they do not have the technical ability and the verbiage would be their only recourse. We must make a special effort in science, to understand that for all these disciplines, it is practice makes perfect. But it is still necessary that we have a forge and blacksmith equipment.
The day when we have made possible the effective work of our students, as a real and workable plan, then the school will evolve as the accelerated development of technology make it a necessity. We will fight together against technical failure of educators who have been trained to discuss and reason, but not work there. This will not be the least difficult part of our task. http://www.icem-freinet.fr/archives/educ/57-58/7/3-5.pdf Author Freinet Print
