The study of the childhood´s development lets us understand it better. Every childhood is singular, It is the first chapter of a new biography in the world. “The teaching of English Language in Primary Level I” Workshop - course is designed for the teachers of secondary education with English specialty, where you will know the 2009 Primary Program with its purposes and its specific aims, offering necessary academic resources to accomplish the formative purposes that are planned, besides knowing the challenges of the primary education and the development of the children, their universal characteristics, and their psychomotor, physical, emotional and social steps.
The main purpose of this workshop - course is to transmit the normal students an initial and systematic knowledge of transmitting the functions and intellectual capacities of children, of the tools that let them know and understand progressively their personal and familiar environment, the physical objects and the natural phenomena which children, are surrounded, the shapes and the symbols of the culture which they belong. As a summary, it talks about analyzing the main processes of the development of the child´s thought, that is located in the comprehended step between the six and twelve years old, with more emphasis in the correspondent ages of primary education, besides guiding and motivating the students to acquire an integrated vision of children´s development, as a consequence, it implicates to assume, in every person the processes of growth and psychomotor growth up, the linked ones with the development of the cognitive functions and the emotional and affective change are encouraged between each other permanently.
Analyze the 2009 Primary Education Study Plan, its purposes, bases, competences for
life and the thematic edges of the Spanish, Mathematics and Science subjects.
Comprehend the development of children through different pedagogic theories, for
the understanding of the emotional, physical and psychomotor processes of the primary school children.
Explain the processes of physical, psychomotor, and cognitive development, of the
language and affective of children from six to twelve years old, with the purpose of comprehending the characteristics of the children who attend to primary education.
ORGANIZATION OF CONTENTS
For practical reasons; it is necessary that the basic topics are separated and analyzed continuously. In this workshop - course the thematic fields are organized in three blocks: Block I “Knowledge of 2009 Primary Education Study Plan”, Block II “Steps of Development for Children in Primary Education”, and finally Block III “Physical and Psychomotor Development and the factors that interfere”.
In the first Block “Knowledge of 2009 Primary Education Study Plan”, they will be analyzed all the competences for life and the profile of graduating from Primary Education, besides learning the general objectives of this level.
The course begins with a general explanation of the characteristics of the profile of graduating from Primary Education, the challenges that are presented in Primary Education, and the curricular articulation with the other Education levels.
We expect that the students learn the characteristics of the Plan, the purposes, and the focuses of the Spanish, Mathematics and Science subjects.
The study of the topics of Block II, “Steps of Development for Children in Primary Education”, concentrates in the knowledge of the cognitive mechanisms of the attention and the memory, such as the development of superior processes like formation of concepts, the advancement of the abstract comprehending and the consolidation of the language.
This block also includes elements which guide the student according to the influence that the cultural and familiar contexts execute on the cognitive development of the children. This topic contributes to recognize the link between two ambits of children´s development. Different factors of the immediate social development – the early stimulation, the type and variety of the linguistic exchanges, the appreciation or the indifference through the learning of the children – modify, in specific limits, their intellectual development.
Block III, “Physical and Psychomotor Development and the factors that interfere”, includes relative basic contents to the physical and psychomotor development of the children from six to twelve years old.
The course begins in the process of growth and the development of the motive skills. In this way, the students have a referral of the conditions that they will probably find in their work space.
It´s important for the students to comprehend that the processes of physical and psychomotor development have important variations in each child, in his rhythm and in his intensity, they are involved with genetic and nutritional factors..
The study of the patterns of growth allows to warn the students how an adequate or deficient feeding harms the children´s physical development, in the vulnerability face to the diseases and, in general, in the stamina of the children at school.
GENERAL TEACHING GUIDELINES
The General teaching guidelines seek to offer the teachers and students different options to organize the work and take advantage of the materials that support it, in addition they are proposed some orientations of the workshop - course:
The checking of the theoretical elements that are part of this workshop - course which
has as a priority to encourage the students to learn using them like tools to analyze the reality, to contrast and appreciate different focuses and to make critical judgement. This vision is different in comparison with the other one which establishes the study of the theory itself, in order to accumulate information.
It is important to consider the previous ideas of the students as a resource in different moments of the course. However, we need to take into account that these ones must improve through the elaboration of concepts and the comprehension of the processes that are subject of this workshop - course. To investigate the previous conceptions it is not enough to plan questions to the group at the beginning of a topic, it is necessary to seek different strategies like, the use of a questionnaire, the elaboration of schemes, and others, that can be instruments to appreciate the obtained advancements.
The compressive reading, the interpretation of information and the justified discussion
are intellectual abilities that are accomplished only if it is done in previous individual work.
For this reason, it is necessary to foment in permanent way the reading of texts, the elaboration of synthesis, brief essays and different registers of information, with these kind of activities, the students will express their ideas, points of view and conclusions, that work as a support for the collective work.
The teamwork results productive, if the tasks are organized with a common referral
which allows to offer elements for the analysis and the discussion. For example, if it is about obtaining information about the growth in children of different ages, each team can investigate in a range of age, present to the group the obtained information, comment it and contrast it with the corresponding tables and with the support of the texts, make explanations of the found differences and the consequences that have in the scholastic yield.
It is necessary to emphasize that the teamwork is just formative if it is supported in the individual effort of each one of their members.
It is important to consult the web pages to know the different disciplinary focuses
about the development of the child. In this way, it begins the comparison, contrast and integration of points of view that the authors offer. This exercise lets the students elaborate own explanations about the processes of development. In order to accomplish that, it is necessary to emphasize the aspects that the reading must focus, with guides, main questions or problems that represent intellectual challenges to interpret the information.
It is recommended to guide the formative evaluation process, supported on the purposes of the workshop - course, the thematic content, paying attention to the continuity, systematic, and flexibility principles. The teacher will be the person who decides the critic moments, instruments and appropriate activities for its elaboration.
Coming up, they are proposed some suggestions that can guide the evaluation process during the course:
Elaboration of own explanations about the concepts that are analyzed, from the studied
Organization of the ideas to present them in an ordered way when they are written,
exposed in a topic or when the information is registered in the observations that were already made.
Elaboration of arguments about the factors that are involved in the physic, psychomotor,
and emotional development that is conformed as an integral process, based in the different types of information that are checked and obtained.
Organization of the information to ask, plan problems and identify the challenges that
