Thousands of candles can be lighted from a single candle, and the life of the candle will not be shortened. Happiness never decreases by being SHARED.


A great teacher has left us and in a way we are all a little bit poorer today because he is not among us any longer. A beloved and respected teacher died last week : George Lewis.  He was no doubt a great lecturer, simple and unconceited, but most of all he was the kind of "teacher" and "human being" most of us would like to be remembered as.
He was a man deeply committed to the profession and as a helmsman for FAAPI, he managed to take the ship to safe harbour in one of the darkest hours of the Federation, but most of all, he did that humbly and unpretentiously.
Many things could be said about him now but we are sure he would not, as the true and ultimate gentleman he was. like to hear that much. As a tribute to him and to all the true teachers like him, we wanted to dedicate these simple lines to his
loving memory.

Our dear friend and SHARER, Annie Altamirano ,, from
Punta Alta, Province of Buenos Aires sends us this story :  
The teacher gave her fifth-grade class an assignment: Get their parents to tell them a story with a moral in it.
Next day, Kathy said, "My father's a farmer, and we have a lot of egg-laying hens. One time we were taking eggs to market in a box on the front seat of the truck, when we hit a bump and a lot of them broke and made a mess."
"So, what's the moral of the story," asked the teacher.
"Don't put all your eggs in one basket."
Another child, Lucy, told her story. "Our family are farmers too. But we raise chickens for the meat market. We had 16 eggs one time, but when they hatched, we only got 10 live chicks.
And the moral to this story is: "don't count your chickens until they hatch."
"That was fine," said the teacher.
"Now, Johnny, do you have a story too?"
"Yes, ma'am. My daddy told me about my Aunt Karen. She was a flight engineer in Desert Storm in Iraq and her plane got hit. She had to bail out over enemy territory. All she had was a bottle of whiskey, a machine gun and a machete. She drank the whiskey on the way down so it wouldn't break.
Then she landed in the middle of 100 enemy troops. She killed 70 with the machine gun until she ran out of bullets. She hacked 20 more with the machete until the blade broke. And she killed the last 10 with her bare hands."
"Good heavens!" exclaimed the horrified teacher. "What kind of moral did your daddy tell you was in this terrible story?"
"Never get near Aunt Karen when she's been drinking."

Our dear SHARER from Las Palmas, Córdoba, Christian Duarte Varela sends
us a most romantic message with love quotes taken from the movies.
Thank Chris for your contribution !

"I guarantee it won't be easy.
I guarantee that at one point or another
one of us is going to want to leave.
But I also guarantee that if I don't ask you to be mine
I am going to regret it for the rest of my life.
Because I know in my heart
You are the only one for me. "  
The Runaway Bride

"The only wrong thing would be
To deny what your heart truly feels." 
The Mask of Zorro

" How come we don't always know when love begins,
But we always know when it ends ? " 
L.A. Story

"The only feeling of real loss
Is when you love someone
More than you love yourself."     
Goodwill Hunting

"You cannot find true love where it does not truly exist
And you cannot hide it where it truly does." 
Kissing a Fool

"When you realise you want to spend
The rest of you life with somebody,
You want the rest of your life
To start as soon as possible."   
When Harry met Sally

"You will see a lot of things, but they will mean nothing to you
If you lose sight of the thing you love."      
At First Sight

"When you love someone,
And you love them with your heart,
It never disappears
When you're apart.
And when you love someone
And you've done all you can do,
You set them free,
And if that love was true ....
When you love someone
It will all come back to you."       
Forget Paris

"Will you love me for the rest of my life ?
I'll love you for the rest of mine."      

I would rather have had one breath of her hair,
One kiss from her mouth,
One touch of her hand,
Than eternity without it. One !!     
City of Angels

I love you without knowing how, why ....
Or even from where ....

The following is a quote from an article published in "La Nación"  of September 8th 2000. We thought it would be of interest to all SHARERS in Argentina : 
El Gobierno anunció que  pondrá  en  marcha  un  plan  para que los institutos  de formación docente pasen  a  tener  una  organización similar a la de las universidades.
Eso  implicara,  a  partir  del  consenso  con  las  jurisdicciones provinciales  y  los  propios  institutos, la creación  de  un  sistema  de cogobierno,  con  la  participación  de  profesores  y  estudiantes. La propuesta,  prevé  desarrollar  un  proceso  de autonomía en la  gestión  y selección de los planes de estudios.

"Los  institutos    docentes    fueron    siempre  una  especie  de
laboratorios, en los  que  se ponían a prueba experiencias pedagógicas y se
renovaba la educación.   Eso,  lamentablemente, se perdió y es lo que ahora
intentamos  recuperar",  explico Edith Litwin,  coordinadora  del  Programa
Nacional  de Formación Docente, quien procura  rescatar  lo  mejor  de  las
tradiciones pedagógicas argentinas, surgidas en la etapa de la organización
del país con la creación de la primera escuela normal, fundada en Paraná en
En  la  Argentina  hay  actualmente  1102  institutos  de formación docente, a los que se suman 112 de formación artística. De los primeros, 581  son  estatales  y 521 privados.  Entre todos reúnen una  matricula  de 239.814  alumnos  (228.217 en los institutos de educación común y 11.597 en los de  enseñanza  artística),  de  los  cuales  el  70%  cursa  en  los establecimientos estatales.
La propuesta  se  complementa  con  un  proyecto de ley remitido al Congreso, por el  cual  se  permitirá  a  los  egresados  de los institutos docentes  acreditar sus estudios  en  las  universidades  para  que  puedan incorporarse a las carreras de grado y de Posgrado.
El subsecretario de Educación Básica, Gustavo Iaies advirtió que la nueva  organización de la formación docente  permitirá  orientar  mejor  la matricula,  dado  que  hoy el 60% de  los  estudiantes  del  magisterio  se inscribe  en  la  educación inicial y en los  dos  primeros  ciclos  de  la Educación  General  Básica  (de primero a sexto grado), "donde  el  sistema menos los necesita".

Se  impulsara, por ello, la formación de nuevos profesores para  el secundario.  "Actualmente, el 10% de los docentes que dictan clases  en  la enseñanza  media no posee el titulo de profesor", comento Iaies al sostener la necesidad de fortalecer la capacitación.  
A dear and active SHARER from Zárate, Mónica Mourrut de Beauverger, sends us this article published in the "Buenos Aires Herald" on August 29th 2000, which we reproduce verbatim : 
"In a recent interview the Minister of Education, Juan José LLach told The Herald that those teachers who are studying a Licenciatura ( an articulation degree which promises to upgrade teachers´tertiary degrees) were losing their time, because the law which he submitted to Congress- that entails the reform of
Article 39- will as he says "eventually be passed" .
Aricle 39 of the Higher Education Law was passed on July 21st, 1995 (Law nunber 24,521). Ever since that day, graduates from Teaching Training Colleges
have been struggling to obtain the reform of this law that states : "To have access to poastgraduate training a University degree is required". This law - which Llach referred to as one that "segregated teachers" - also ceased to eanable tertiary graduates toteach beyond what used to be the third year of the old secondary system unless they also have a University degree.
Although we can´t back the concept that any time spent on studying is "lost time", we know that the majority of EFL teachers are undergoing their studies for merely bureaucratic purposes, Silvina Gvirtz, Head of the Escuela de Educación of the Universidad de San Andrés, believes that many private universities took advantange of an unfortunate situation for teachers. " 
The article then goes on to explain the scheme that Universidad de San Andrés is currently offering to teachers, as they say " while they wait for Llach´s law to pass Congress". It basically consists of an intermediate post-graduate degree programme at university level ( that all 4 year tertiary degree holders can join) of nine subjects and only one integrated exam, after which teachers can go on to
attend five more subjects and write their thesis to obtain the Masters degree.

The following is an excerpt of the article published in the Spanish journal "Visión Educativa" Issue 7 by Beatriz Candelero López :

 "A fines de los años 50, los educadores europeos acuñaron el termino "Androgogía" , derivado de la palabra griega Anere=Adulto y Agrocus= Conductor de la enseñanza, para determinar el estudio y aplicación de la educación de los adultos, diferenciándose de la "Pedagogía", derivado del griego Paidos=Niños y Agein=Guiar, que se concibe como el arte de educar a los niños.

Teniendo como fundamento lo anterior, es necesario tomar en cuenta al diseñar programas de aprendizaje destinados para adultos, sus necesidades y
expectativas, en virtud de que no podemos educar al adulto usando las mismas técnicas que utilizamos con los niños.
El primer lugar, es importante reconocer que los adultos poseen experiencias (como punto de partida para la incorporación de nuevos conocimientos), información, habilidades y valores que han venido adquiriendo y desarrollando en su vida cotidiana. Aunado a lo anterior, es imprescindible conducir el proceso educativo, a través de una Metodología predominantemente activa y colectiva, el la cual prevalezcan momentos de discusión sobre problemas generados a partir de la interacción del adulto con objetos, hechos y personas.
Una de las ultimas metodologías aplicadas en Educación para Adultos bajo este enfoque y desarrollada a través de las asesorías, consiste en aplicar tres etapas interrelacionadas una de otras.
Descubrimiento, esta etapa se desarrolla al inicio de la sesión, consiste en hacer que los adultos reflexionen y rescaten las experiencias y los conocimientos que tienen sobre el tema de estudio a tratar en la sesión de asesoría.
Aprendizaje, es la segunda etapa del proceso, consiste en que los adultos se remitan al libro de texto y en particular al tema. 
Aplicación, es la última etapa y su desarrollo permite reiniciar nuevamente el proceso, tratar de dar una aplicación práctica a todo lo aprendido, en la vida diaria de los adultos.
Ahora bien, siendo el propósito en el aprendizaje de los adultos la pertinencia de los contenidos educativos; la destreza con que éstos se desarrollen o se apliquen deben estar en razón directa con el tipo de actividades que el adulto realiza y con las experiencias directas de su contexto familiar, social, cultural y laboral; esto permite delinear situaciones y secuencias didácticas significativas para los adultos; por lo que en la enseñanza de éstos no existe un camino único y lineal para que los sujetos aprendan, los caminos pueden no ser los mismos entre los
diferentes grupos de adultos según su contexto.
Por otro lado, es primordial que el educador de los adultos conozca al sujeto que asesora, comprendiendo el conjunto de variables que en situaciones concretas inciden en el aprendizaje; por ejemplo: problemas de índole familiar, desconfianza de su capacidad cognoscitiva, limitaciones socioculturales, temor al ridículo, ritmo de aprendizaje lento, entre otros. 
En síntesis: los asesores deben tomar en cuenta la vinculación entre intereses, experiencias concretas y producción de saberes por parte del adulto, para planear las actividades educativas considerando que cada adulto-educando tiene su propia historia.

we would like to say goodbye with a short but moving message our dear friend and
SHARER, Mechy Miguel sent to us :
Dear Omar and Marina,

I really enjoy reading SHARE. I felt for  a while, like in classroom again, I feel the dust of the lovely chalk in my hand, I see faces, waiting for my next word, I hear the bell, I walk again through those paths.

While a read SHARE, I just travel in time, back to my clasrroom, back to that world which not even the best writer, without a few days in a class, feeling the class, smelling the class, could ever describe.

Thanks for SHARE.
