PNIEB… no more?

Last week, a friend of mine (Monica, lots of love) posted  in Facebook this picture with the question: Does PNIEB change the name?

I love that movie!

I love that movie!

From collegues comments, apparently it is so. Thanks, for the late notice. Like usual, burocracy always gets in the middle of important things.

According to the Diario Oficial de la Federacion in Acuerdo 706, it is so. In this “new” document (since January 2014), there is a new program which, we could say, absorbs PNIEB. It is called Programa de Fortalecimiento de la Calidad en Educacion Basica (link right here) and we are part of it now.

From reading the document (not really carefully), I got a couple of things. CORRECT ME if I’m wrong.

  1. This program has 4 different components: materials for math and literacy, supporting curriculum design, English in Public Basic School (us) and get the money to do so.
  2. We are still part of the newest syllabus (2011)… ufff! (Happy sigh)
  3. We are still EXTERNAL ADVISERS (no members of the faculty), at least in Preschool and Elementary (nothing new)
  4. Almost 65% of  all the whole budget goes to us in terms of paychecks, teacher training (courses, certifications, etc) and teaching materials.

Reflexions after a secondary reunion... the diet theory

Reflexions (Don’t really pay attention to the upper image. I’m being sarcastic):

  • I hate to be a pessimist but I don’t think we are getting tenure (is that the correct word?) or plaza anymore, unless you live in DF or BC.
  • We lost part of the importance or power we had before.
  • What does this mean? Actually nothing really important in the short run, we are still working and getting paid. On the long run, I have no clue.

Schoology VS Edmodo, part 2

Extra note: Since officially, there is no PNIEB as it was called before. I will have to change the domain, or what? WHAT A BOOMER!

Any ideas please send me a comment. XOXO

    Well, here in Tamaulipas (Matamoros) We are working at the CIEB (Coordinación de Inglés en Educación Basica) thanks for the information – nothing have changed since 2008, no tenure, tons of work but still have a paycheck!!! The “new” notice is that we are now in the CTE as regular members of the school. So far so good!

    No tengo idea como trabajar con el libro Teens Club, en primero y segundo de secundaria. Los de segundo medio tienen conocimiento del idioma; los de primero hay niños que no se saben mi el alfabeto, nunca han tenido inglés. Como trabajar con un libro que supera el nivel básico?? y mas aún, un libro que incluye temas de poco o nulo interés para los alumnos. en caso de segundo grado, con lecturas de casi TRES hojas con vocabulario que no les sirve de nada a los alumnos!! Si alguien tiene idea o ya ha trabajado con este libro le agradecería su ayuda…
