Brad Horn, Regional English Language Officer, y Marcela Hidalgo, Regional English Language Assistant, fueron los(as) dos representantes de la Embajada de Estados Unidos que la semana recién pasada visitaron la Región del Bío Bío, reuniéndose con el SEREMI de Educación, Benjamín Maureira; el Jefe de Gabinete, Carlos González; la Coordinadora Regional de Inglés, Valentina Lüer; el Encargado Regional de Inglés del Programa Inglés Abre Puertas (PIAP) en el Bío Bío, Abel Cisterna; y los(as) Coordinadores(as) de las Redes de Docentes de Inglés (RDI) de Chiguayante, Cabrero, Concepción, Talcahuano, Lota y Hualpén.

El objetivo de esta visita fue conocer el trabajo que se realiza para el desarrollo de la enseñanza y el aprendizaje del inglés a nivel regional y la labor que realizan los(as) profesores(as) pertenecientes a las Redes de Docentes de Inglés. En la jornada, se conversó acerca de los alcances del PIAP en la región y de sus iniciativas que se están llevando a cabo, como las capacitaciones del Recurso Educativo de Inglés Rural It’s my turn, el Proceso de Certificación Docente, y las competencias regionales de Public Speaking y Spelling Bee, destacando los beneficios que todas estas iniciativas han generado en docentes y estudiantes.

En esa oportunidad, los(as) profesores a cargo de las RDI de la zona contaron su experiencia en la coordinación de sus agrupaciones, y todas las actividades que realizan con sus docentes. Los(as) representantes de los programas de inglés de la Embajada, por su parte, también presentaron sus iniciativas y destacaron su intención de colaborar activamente con las RDI.

Brad Horn sostuvo que “es grandioso el trabajo que los docentes realizan para hacer cada vez mejor el proceso de enseñanza y aprendizaje de los estudiantes, y lo hemos podido ver en las visitas que hemos hecho a distintas regiones, donde también tuvimos oportunidad de participar en las competencias que organiza el Programa Inglés Abre Puertas. Nosotros queremos ofrecer todo nuestro apoyo para que los docentes sigan el mismo camino”.

How to Coach A Debate Team

How to Coach A Debate Team [Kindle Edition]

This book contains all you need to know to successfully coach a debate team. You may need to convince students that debate is a good idea, though. Here are six reasons:
1. Debating ability is a valuable skill.
2. Debate utilizes useful English.
3. It is a unique way to teach grammar.
4. It develops critical thinking skills.
5. It introduces global issues.
6. It develops research skills.

A more powerful reason to coach a debate team is given to us by Dr. Martin Luther King: ““Sooner or later all the people of the world will have to discover a way to live together in peace… If this is to be achieved, man must evolve for all human conflict a method which rejects revenge, aggression, and retaliation…” Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. – 1964 Nobel Peace Prize Acceptance Speech

The International Baccalaureate [Kindle Edition]

The International Baccalaureate [Paperback]

The global search for high-quality education, embedded in high-performing education systems, has taken on mythical proportions, almost resembling the alchemists’ quest to turn common metals into gold.

It is my hope that the present day search for global education, equitable and providing equality of opportunity for all, shall not cease until the “gold” we seek, has been found.

I therefore dedicate this book to all the educators, researchers, parents and students the world over, who strive to achieve this elusive goal,high-quality education for all the citizens of the world.

In this endeavour, it is my belief that the International Baccalaureate merits a closer look, based on their more than 40 year history of delivering consistently excellent results.

I add that all of the reflections and views in this book are mine alone, unless otherwise noted, and can not be attributed to my employer or any other organization I am affiliated with, past or present. For any errors or oversights, I bear the complete responsibility.
