Interview with Herbert Puchta
Just the beginning and some interesting people have been interviewed at the Conference, as I said it was just the starter for a great weekend and some more days next week. I arrived home and just looked for the beginning of the Conference and tomorrow I will be following many more.
Just a short interview- the first one for me today- and what I liked were the key words used by Puchta:
- Engagement with adult learners
- Teachers as a model
- Teaching values
We are responsible for building activities which have to do with values : I like the ideas because what I have done so far is also trying to build and establish values. Love for the environment, resperct for other people, talking about the past and its importance for the present. In my school we have a project which has to do with MEMORY, it is the memory of our past, NEVER FORGET WHAT HAPPENED IN EUROPE IN THE YEARS OF THE HOLOCAUST. Today we have more people who are suffering, so why not trying to do something that links our sad past with the PRESENT? I am teaching languages but I am also a teacher and I like the idea of talking about such issues and topics with students and getting them more INVOLVED.
