I have found some notes on good behaviour surfing on the internet. I was having a look at some texts written by Ronald R. Rodgers Ph.D., Associate Professor in Journalism, University of Florida (USA) when I discovered these lines about classroom rules.

“Spring 2017

Dr. Ronald R. Rodgers

Late assignments: No assignment can be late under any circumstances. Work turned in late will not be accepted unless you have a legitimate and documented excuse.

Common courtesy: For heaven’s sake, turn off your cell phone! Please also observe other rules of common courtesy, such as not speaking to your classmates (or yourself) when others are making a presentation, not falling asleep in class, not scrolling the Web, etc.

Be Good: And I have to say this as part of our contract: You need to conduct yourself in a courteous manner both in and out of class when it comes to dealing with fellow students or your instructor. That means any rude, obstructive or aggressive behavior will not be tolerated, and manifestations of same will mean your ouster from the class. I have a zero-tolerance policy on this.” (…)

Una columna periodística para leer en Galicia un día de lluvia

18 January 2011

A mi mejor amigo, José Antonio MC.

Aunque suene a broma encontrar una columna escrita en gallego en un blog que alterna la lengua inglesa con la española, este no es el caso. Xosé Carlos Caneiro es el autor de “Aznavour” que publicaba el día 28 de diciembre de 2010 “La Voz de Galicia”.

Uno no ha podido evitar emocionarse al leer el Día de los Santos Inocentes el texto en la contraportada del diario mientras esperaba a su mejor amigo en un café en su ciudad natal y llovía como es normal. Era invierno y tiempo de Navidad.

La Voz de Galicia –Martes 28 de diciembre de 2010

DE BAR EN BAR

Aznavour

Xosé Carlos Caneiro

Escoitaba a Aznavour mentres viñan sobre os ollos, chorándome, todas as palabras que repite a humanidade. Xa saben: feliz aninovo, olvidarás os malos momentos e vencerás, chegarán por fin as pombas ao teu balcón, a muller ou o home que non saben de metáforas entenderán talvez por qué tanto amabas, o individuo díscolo e hipócrita dirá que só ti importas, feliz aninovo outra vez, 2011 rima con alegría… Escoitaba todas as palabras que todos escoitamos mentres Aznavour cantaba que estaba Venecia triste sen ti. Choraba. As lágrimas son redentoras cando chega un novo ano; incluso parecen estúpidas cando un é capaz de escribilas un 28 de decembro. Qué triste está Venecia… cantaba Aznavour.

Eu quería que asubiases esa canción que todos coñecemos mentres escribo estas palabras. Estes «ques» que saen do meu corazón como unha oración que non sabe mentir. Que a felicidade escriba nos teus ollos toda a felicidade que os malos tempos roubaron. Que gañe a inocencia (este 28 de decembro) e que perda a experiencia, os tres pés do gato, o «desconfía e vencerás», o «máis vale paxaro en man que cento voando». Que mires a lúa e escribas poemas de mazá mentres todos escriben nada. Que ames, que te amen. Que 2011 veña cargado de sacos que ti vas romper cada noite, lúa por lúa, esperando o inesperado: o amor que chega cando non agardas por el. Que as nenas e nenos sigan soñando cos reis… que existen, aínda que xa non creas neles. Que non te entregues ao que non queres entregarte. Que pelexes polos teus principios (aínda que os teus principios non sexan rendibles nin comerciais). Que escribas cartas de amor, agora que só escribimos e-mails e facebooks e tuentis con sabor a superficie. Qué triste está Venecia. A 28 de decembro eu quero que musites esa canción mentres les esta columna da boa sorte. Que mires a lúa. Que cantes e cantes e cantes… Como Aznavour.”


Young journalists from ceceii isok in LAVERDAD

This is the first edition of a new project for schools. It has to do with journalism, so I got immediately  involved.

We were the first school team registered in” Primera Edición de miperiódico digital” a project of elaboration of a weekly digital newspaper supported by LA VERDAD GRUPO MULTIMEDIA and Consejería de Educación, Formación y Empleo from the Community of Murcia.

To tell the truth, the work is really easy to do and what´s more it is fascinating: going out to the town and ask people about anything, consulting the internet, making use of Wikipedia and reading lots of printed press such as 2ominutos, LAVERDAD, Público, ABC or ELPAÍS, that is, any kind of newspaper or digital press that could be useful to get ideas and to exploit the topic weekly proposed by the Council of Education of our Community and the newspaper LAVERDAD. Here the work of the coordinator, Fernando Castillo, is really helpful by keeping all tutors informed of any changes in mind as well as replying to any doubt we might have.

Thank to this experience the students work with the internet, learn and practise good writing, get worried about orthography and the relevance of school in life, in society.

The question who worried all teachers of  how to get their students motivated to get information or to make them read a lot has a reply here. This is the first edition and we think that it is a complete success. From a starting point for the first two weeks of 7 teams , the competition achieved a number of 336 teams in the Community of Murcia.

Our school presents 2 teams this year: “ceceii isok ” and “Dossier“. This latter is being coordinated by José Luis Rodriguez, teacher of Music at CEI and the first team is being coordinated by myself.

Our team-ceceii isok-has received the visit of canal6 television from LVGM and we had the chance to see the relevance of this work. (The cameramen Paco and Juan David can be seen on the document below, as well as Silvia, the journalist)

The young journalists at ceceii isok are Mariola Hernández, Marina López, Sara Pina and María Dolores Cánovas. This document below is the page of the newspaper in which we write about canal6 visit to our school.
