Tens of thousands of villages that once a school in two classes, have only a class with five to ten students. And as the class dies, pedagogy also died there. Meanwhile – accept that it is a natural movement – New regions are populated and overpopulate, of H.L.M. are built, and as school buildings are always late, population, besides moving, makes work impossible for a long while. And even where there is no large concentration of people, the needs of the democratization of education grow intercommunal or cantonal creation of multi-grade schools, with CC and collection of students Small schools have lived. 3 °. – And in the meantime, it is The time when teachers settled for ten, twenty years or their entire lives in a village where they continued their educational task in almost ideal conditions. These teachers are now drawn to the vile and replaced somehow by beginners who have no reason nor economic or educational or human extend beyond their compulsory time stay in the villages. They will obviously are not active and dynamic educators, except a few happy exceptions, we know. We are Modern School. We say your need not to linger to the sound of bells missing carts This is an evolution, it does not depend on us to change or stop, which presents us with new problems, minor once, we can do more evade. Much attention should be made to the modernization of our work in the coming year, so in the educator, in our newsletters and on our courses. We launched the idea of ??teaching units working in teams in schools in many classes, with only four or five educators. Some experiments may perhaps be tempted, He will show us those of our techniques that can enter the cities of school, free texts, limographes, interscholastic correspondence with albums and school newspaper as soon as possible; conferences, painting, files and auto-fixes booklets etc … What users of these schools start to cooperative work, they bring here each the result of their experience, which will only make it more active and more effective campaign we will conduct parallel to the modernization of the conditions this teaching. ¦ SCIENCE EDUCATION We should worry especially during the New Year, we now resume will have again a few opportunities, editing work boxes, and continue B.T S.B.T. Science, the existing brochures to date are often used in our classes but still cover a small part of the interests of children and teachers in this discipline. But it might be good to hear from us ourselves first. The Commission of Science stalled, despite the dedication and hard work of the team who is responsible. I think it is trampling the result of a misunderstanding that we should apply ourselves to dissipate in The Educator, and your homework
also in Life Skills because it is the very foundations of science education. The problem may be in amount so raised in our classes: can science education and should it be in our classrooms by trial and error, or he will sacrifice the so-called scientific method? There are indeed among us comrades – they are mostly in small classes – who strive to let children experiment with and let them discover by trial and error, major scientific laws, they will never know that formally s they have acquired in-depth, integrated into their lives through their own experience. We always mention the name of Delbasty when discussing this aspect, at least very original science education. I add immediately that this approach to teaching is well in line with our psychology and our teaching and we have failed to convince the mass of our members who remain convinced that such an experiment at the base n is a messy craft which earned us a useless waste of time. And advocate in short the conventional process: What do we want to convey to our children? Why Boats Float for example. For us teachers to prepare in a desired order, with the necessary equipment, experience that will allow our students to have a fair scientific conception of this event. I have in my files a number of letters and articles about this: a letter Barrier (Calvados), a butchery (Lot-et-Garonne); letters of Bertrand and Delbasty; an article Lucienne Baiesse (Popular Education of 15 April 1960) on the formation of a scientific mind; the series of articles given by Bernardin and this year we continue the publication. Bernardin was experimentally the path of the scholastic method in trial and error. We will resume this discussion, both in the educator in Life Skills. And now you can send your articles. GRAMMAR IS USELESS? I have already repeatedly demonstrated. But I know that there are still many comrades who are not convinced at all. Belperron published this year in The Emancipated School a real course “for a living teaching grammar, rational and educational”: functional grammar (Charvet) method. The article in this week is about the functions of subordinate clauses connective … Nothing has ever seemed more daunting than grammar lessons even alive. The names and definitions have changed often elsewhere during my career. But Belperron is deluded. With over children may know grammar, but iI do not have to automatically assume that they know best and write faultless … Question to review METHOD Cuisenaire It is in The Emancipated School although H. Bernard publishes a course in numeracy by the color numbers (Cuisenaire method). And I read many books and articles about it, and of course those who are based, published by Delachaux and Niestlie. I am even less convinced that we have revived there over twenty years Camescasse that the benefits of Cuisenaire material with other qualities, in addition, since it is 1 cm cubes of edge with which reconstitutes well geometry data. Yet our method of calculating living eclipsed the Camescasse. We even tried our class to use Cuisenaire equipment. Our students have not bitten any more than Camescasse, because both are still of school materials, which may be recommended in class still largely subject to the duties and exercises but overwhelmed by the living calculation, through other channels reached to otherwise profound and definitive results. However I noted here, question also study during the next year. SURVEY “LIFE SKILLS” ON THE ATTENTION OF CHILDREN. The comrades were skeptical about the scope of this investigation. She has earned us many answers that Mr Combet is studying, and to which we will devote at least part of our July issue of the journal. Remember – that Life Skills review is essential for the efficient practice of our teaching; – we need very many comrades exposing their problems, their results and difficulties, our friends or secondary Inspectors will help us study. Our friend J?gly currently primary inspector in Briey launched any investigation in his district to identify the extent to which elements of life and physiology influence in our classrooms on ?students’ attention. Further investigations will follow. * THREE CONFERENCE FOCUSED ON OUR EDUCATIONAL AND PSYCHOLOGICAL PREOCCUPATIONG 1. – In Paris will be held from July 18 to 27, organized by the schools Matching Center (110 Avenue Mozart, Paris XVI) an international conference of educators with the overall theme – Child adaptation to the modern world . We would be pleased that some of us can participate. 2 °. – Fifth International Congress of Workers for Maladjusted (Rome from 17 to 21 June 1960) This conference will discuss the theme “youth educator and inadequate mental hygiene” It’s pretty much the theme of our Congress Avignon The mental health of children and teachers.
