PNIEB and CONALITEG, 2013 edition

25 Feb

Last year around these days, I posted about the fact that CONALITEG (Comision Nacional de Libros de Texto Gratuito) the government office in charge of free textbooks in Mexico didn’t have a choice with the new syllabus.

I was soooooo frustrated last year. Check post here.

This year, I am beyond frustation. I am so mad and angry. THERE ARE NO NEW TEXTBOOKS. Check the official page here.

Since last year, the supervisors, coordinadors and all chiefs are on us not requesting but demanding us to use the new syllabus.


Last year, I was the bigger person and I accepted the fact and have made my best effort using the new syllabus without a textbook as a guide. All this school year I have been working on it. I am doing it while the other more comfy teachers are using the old syllabus because they have the textbooks.

I have tried to convice other teachers, even showed plannings and activities to use the new syllabus with little good results.

I was hoping for the best for next school year but ain’t gonna happen. So, we are back at square 1 like last year.

Do I like it? Of course NO.

What can I and us do about it? I am working on it.

    We were working the half of school year using only our own concepts and ideas about the so called “new books”, and by the time they arrived the parents have been pressuring us to complet and end the books – on the other hand a group of teacher from the State of Coahuila “pour” the syllabus into excell sheet to make it more manageable. For me, that version is most easily to follow.

    I will share with you the “PNIEB lesson planning”, sending it at your email.

      hi, I´m really worry because it will be the first time to work plan 2011 in my school (in Baja California just few schools work the new one) but this year all the schools have to work with the new one. How you worked this program because in my city most of the students of junior school dont have 8 year of English. How did you divide the units, what kind of tales did you use in your classes. Thanks

        Well… all this school year, I have been posting some ideas about it. To be honest, that’s the main purpose of this blog.
