Ojos Claros, Roberto E. Bahruth Dec 2010

Ojos Claros, Roberto E. Bahruth

Roberto E. Bahruth

Seis noches seguidas doña Clara soñó agua, soñó cielo, soñó luz. Fue así como Pati anunció, no sólo su nacimiento sino el color de sus ojos y la claridad de su alma. Y fue así, que unos meses después Pati naciera con ojos azules y claros en un mundo lleno de ojos sin luz. Desde pequeña esta niña fue especial y mágica. A su lado las personas no podían evitar sentirse en paz. Muchos empezaron a visitar la casa de doña Clara sólo para verse reflejados en la claridad azul de la pequeña. Sus ojos nunca dejaban de sonreír ni ...


Mágico Encuentro, Roberto E. Bahruth Dec 2010

Mágico Encuentro, Roberto E. Bahruth

Roberto E. Bahruth

Cuando aprendemos a caminar detenidamente, sin apuro, la vida nos revela algunos de sus secretos, esos que siempre han estado frente a nosotros y que en nuestra prisa, no vemos o no queremos ver. En mi más reciente visita a Guatemala fui dispuesto a no deterner los días en mis manos, sino dejarlos fluir mientras me dejaba envolver por el ritmo y luz de este país y su gente . Y fue así, como por primera vez, me entregué a esa canción, tan familiar, del viento jugando con los árboles. Muy pronto descubrí cómo un sin fin de colibrís llegaban a ...

El Diseño De Cursos De Lenguas Basados En Tareas, Kerwin A. Livingstone Nov 2010

El Diseño De Cursos De Lenguas Basados En Tareas, Kerwin A. Livingstone

Kerwin A. Livingstone

Este presente trabajo pone énfasis en el diseño de cursos de lenguas basados en tareas respecto a la enseñanza del español como lengua extranjera (LE) o segunda lengua (L2). Se hace mención respecto de los orígenes del Enfoque por Tareas (Enseñanza-Aprendizaje de Lenguas Mediante Tareas) y su necesidad para que los aprendices logren la competencia comunicativa y lingüística en la lengua que están aprendiendo. Se discute sobre la justificación para un plan de estudios y cursos basados en tareas y las razones por las cuales se prefiere un plan de estudios basado en tareas en vez de un plan de ...


¿Pueden Los Computadores Corregir Errores De La Lengua?, Kerwin A. Livingstone Nov 2010

¿Pueden Los Computadores Corregir Errores De La Lengua?, Kerwin A. Livingstone

Kerwin A. Livingstone

Este artículo es un intento de contestar la pregunta si los computadores pueden corregir errores de la lengua, sobre todo aquellos cometidos por los alumnos de segundas lenguas (L2). Por esta razón se examinará el tratamiento de tales errores propuestos en la literatura de la adquisición de L2. Posteriormente se examinarán las tecnologías capaces de evaluar el input del estudiante y de identificar y corregir errores del hablante no nativo. Aunque se hará bastante claro que el ordenador no puede sustituir a un ser humano en el procesamiento total del lenguaje , se indicarán algunas fuerzas de la inteligencia artificial en ...


Teaching Language As A Political Act, Roberto E. Bahruth Nov 2010

Teaching Language As A Political Act, Roberto E. Bahruth

Roberto E. Bahruth

"The most powerful act in the world is to name something" Noam Chomsky "Any way of seeing the world is also a way of not seeing the world." Gregory Bateson An important dimension of critical pedagogy includes the questioning of traditional terminology used to explain reality. In the process of schooling people often learn language which supports the thinking of the dominant paradigm. Many become fluent in the language of impossibility as they are schooled. In response to this, I always try to keep in mind two central points as I teach languages: One is to undo the damage of ...

Spiritually Integrative Archetypal Energies And Glimpes Into Soul Consciousness, Carroy U. Ferguson Oct 2010

Spiritually Integrative Archetypal Energies And Glimpes Into Soul Consciousness, Carroy U. Ferguson

Carroy U "Cuf" Ferguson, Ph.D.

In other writings I have described Archetypal Energies as Higher Vibrational Energies that have their own transcendent value, purpose, quality, and “voice” unique to the individual that operate deep within our psyches, at both individual and collective levels. We tend to experience them as “creative urges” to move us toward our Highest Good or Optimal Realities. I use easily recognized terms to evoke a common sense of these Archetypal Energies (e.g., Love, Acceptance, Inclusion, Harmony, Peace). Here, I want to discuss Spiritually Integrative Archetypal Energies and how they can assist us in gaining glimpses into the nature of our ...


El "Pentagonismo": Idioma Del Neoliberalismo, Roberto E. Bahruth Oct 2010

El "Pentagonismo": Idioma Del Neoliberalismo, Roberto E. Bahruth

Roberto E. Bahruth

Las escuelas represenran instiruciones con un incuestionable potencial progresivo. Sin embargo, en los EUU los centros escolares del Estado están organizados para facilitar un alfabetismo superficial en los ciudadanos, de manera que no estén en condiciones de cuestionar la terminología de la educación, ni eI program a imperialista que se sustenta. Para quicnes, dentro de ese país, estamos comprometidos con una pedagogía crítica, capaz de frenar y revertir la enajenacíon de nuestro pueblo, se hace imprescindible en primer lugar retar Ia terminología tradicional y reemplazarla con un idioma realmenre critico. EI idioma demuestra mucho de las orientaciones ideológicas de los ...

Critical Literacy Vs. Reading Programs: Schooling As A Form Of Control, Roberto E. Bahruth Oct 2010

Critical Literacy Vs. Reading Programs: Schooling As A Form Of Control, Roberto E. Bahruth

Roberto E. Bahruth

In the United States, despite years of educational research demonstrating the ineffectiveness and harm caused by reading programs based upon a behaviorist paradigm, political mandates of state and federal programs insist upon their continued use. One might conclude that this insistence is born out of ignorance, however, it seems clear that the populations most harmed by these programs are the poor and minorities. Privileged class students are also harmed because of the "literalcy" (shallow "literacy") these programs produce. I discuss the politics of literacy and language programs in the United States and how they serve to oppress as they reproduce ...

Kerwin A. Livingstone

Este presente trabajo pone énfasis en los procesos metodológicos involucrados en la construcción de cursos de lenguas basados en tareas respecto a la enseñanza-aprendizaje de lenguas extranjeras (LE) y segundas lenguas (L2). La primera parte de este trabajo hace hincapié tanto en el diseño de la lección didáctica como en las distintas fases del diseño de tareas tales como la fase de pre-tarea, de la ejecución de la tarea, y la de post-tarea. Se va a prestar especial atención a las diferencias significativas entre la metodología de la enseñanza tradicional tanto como la metodología de la didáctica moderna. La segunda ...


Persistence Of Vision: Hegemony And Counterhegemony In The Everyday, Roberto E. Bahruth Sep 2010

Persistence Of Vision: Hegemony And Counterhegemony In The Everyday, Roberto E. Bahruth

Roberto E. Bahruth

A gathering of subjects of history, activists who are engaging in the struggle for humanization, provides the ideal circumstance for pedagogical explorations that are generative and organic. Contrary to state-sponsored schooling, where inductees are treated as objects, receptacles of what Gabbard3 refers to as "the secular gospel," participants in the International Institute of Peace Education (IIPE) 2008 held in Haifa, Israel demonstrated the power of critical pedagogical encounters to move people to act not only with clarity and determination in, but also if necessary, against the everyday. After years of cultural work in a variety of terrains of engagement, I ...


As Is The Sapling, So Grows The Tree: The Importance Of Early Care, Roberto E. Bahruth Sep 2010

As Is The Sapling, So Grows The Tree: The Importance Of Early Care, Roberto E. Bahruth

Roberto E. Bahruth

All education is political and the ways children are educated early in life has a strong influence on them throughout their adult experience. Examples of these influences are provided from past generations with an argument to address the speed-of-light living of the generation of the microchip world of today's modern society. Children growing up with electronics and with little tolerance for down time crave constant stimulation. They are living a fundamentally different childhood, disconnected from nature's metaphors. Reflective time, quiet time, time spent getting lost in a book are being replaced by microtexting, emails, instant messaging, and cell ...


Humanizing Education In An Age Of Apathy And Greed, Roberto E. Bahruth Sep 2010

Humanizing Education In An Age Of Apathy And Greed, Roberto E. Bahruth

Roberto E. Bahruth

I want to begin by recognizing that the ideas I will address here may not be recognizable to most, but they are critical to all. I am aware of a long history of people who were persecuted, murdered, dismissed, or ignored because their declarations were not convenient to the power' structures of their day. Galileo was put in jail because his ideas were threatening to the status quo. His integrity required that he be an honest scientist despite the consequences and he would not be silent. I don't claim to be a Galileo, but I would say that a ...


Changes And Challenges In Teaching The Word And The World For The Benefit Of All Of Humanity, Roberto E. Bahruth Sep 2010

Changes And Challenges In Teaching The Word And The World For The Benefit Of All Of Humanity, Roberto E. Bahruth

Roberto E. Bahruth

In this paper, I will address critical changes and challenges which all educators around the world will have to address if we are to develop a global village in which all humans are respected, allowed to live with dignity and without persecution. Teachers and teacher educators will need to consider the vital importance of helping learners in their moral development as they become competent communicators. Prepackaged, superimposed curricula which do not allow room for teachers and learners to negotiate their words and their worlds simultaneously will eventually come to be seen as counterproductive to the best interests of the societies ...

Learning How To Speak Human, Roberto E. Bahruth Sep 2010

Learning How To Speak Human, Roberto E. Bahruth

Roberto E. Bahruth

Pearl S. Buck suggested so many years ago, through her character Ling Tan, the possibility of mutual understanding between people who could not speak each other's language. This is the essence of speaking human. Spoken through actions louder than words, ways of being that represent kindness, gentleness, peacefulness, a smile, eye contact, all deeply human gestures toward the other, they convey meanings that need not be translated.

Η Παρακμή Του Κυπριακού Καθεστώτος Εξαίρεσης: Από Την Οργανική Κρίση Στην Υπέρβαση Του «Δόγματος Της Ανάγκης»;, Nicos Trimikliniotis Aug 2010

Η Παρακμή Του Κυπριακού Καθεστώτος Εξαίρεσης: Από Την Οργανική Κρίση Στην Υπέρβαση Του «Δόγματος Της Ανάγκης»;, Nicos Trimikliniotis

Nicos Trimikliniotis

Το κείμενο αυτό είναι μέρος μιας ευρύτερης προβληματικής η οποία θεωρεί ότι η συνολική Κυπριακή πολιτειακή εμπειρία αποτελείται από ένα σύστημα πολλαπλών, αντιφατικών και αλληλο-τεμνόμενων καθεστώτων εξαίρεσης, το οποίο βιώνει μια βαθειά ή καλύτερα οργανική κρίση. Από την μια μεριά τείνει να διαιωνίζει τους όρους ύπαρξης του μέσα από την σταδιακή κανονικοποίηση του, και από την άλλη μεριά όμως το ίδιο το σύστημα παρουσιάζει τέτοιες βαθύτατες δυσλειτουργίες που υπονομεύουν την ίδια ύπαρξη του. Βασική ιδέα είναι ότι βιώνουμε το εξής παράδοξο: καθώς το καθεστώς εξαίρεσης φαίνεται να διευρύνεται και να κανονικοποιείται σε παγκόσμιο επίπεδο, το πολλαπλό κυπριακό καθεστώς εξαίρεσης υπονομεύεται ...
