More English lessons, despite the teacher shortage? Education Senator Sandra Scheeres (SPD) want the seemingly impossible to reach, in order to improve the performance of the students in Berlin. How to do that and what else is planned, in order to increase the quality of the schools, she said on Wednesday.
In the centre of their extensive quality package, which includes 39 points and four pages filled, read the key skills of literacy, Numeracy. Approximately one third of the elementary students revealed the case of a mandatory nationwide test deficits, which can hardly be balanced by the end of primary school. For this reason, Scheeres wants to prescribe from the summer of 2019 in classes 1 and 2 as an hour per week more English. A year later, the same thing should apply for the classes 3 and 4. So far, Berlin is one of lights the number of hours per Week in the elementary school to the end.
Scheeres calculating that you will need to provide approximately 200 teachers. The teachers were there, because at the same time, more and more of the staff-intensive would be welcome resolved classes. It is also more accurate than before, how the English teaching should expire. Part of this is that it is three times per week, a 15-minute reading training and a daily five - to ten-minute "writing fluid training" as well as "rights talks".
The learning level is to be set annually to be determined
to know more precisely than in the past, whether the teaching objectives are achieved, there should be levels at the beginning of class 2, 4, 5 and 6, binding the Individual learning level analysis (ILeA). In class 3 there is already the comparison work. Overall, Berlin is in Brandenburg, and Hamburg. These analyses will be for mathematics, because the weak - mathematical skills are also in focus. As already announced, is to be in the nursery more important that the children develop a basic understanding of mathematics. In addition, various programs and training series, "" the German center for teacher education in mathematics to be extended. To what extent Berlin will follow the Hamburg experts report on the improvement of mathematics skills, is still open.
In schools where there is often Trouble with violence and discrimination, should be a Tandem of the social educators was established, which deals exclusively with these problems.
another heavy weight will put Scheeres, on the control of the schools. "We need to find a balance between self-managing school and a binding structured to Act," announced the Senator. Because it turns out that schools ignore some of the rules. The use of the self-evaluation portal, with the teacher's assessment, your students should hear about.
schools to ignore the regulation for self-evaluation
Although this is already since 2011, mandatory, and even in a regulation was written, it is hardly. Not want to accept Scheeres: "institutional contracts", which the head teacher to close by the end of 2019 with the school councils, to include such compliance in the future. In addition, principals, school boards and the management staff of education management to evaluate
Also, this target is brand new, but was also ignored for years. In the quality package of the many call was received that all schools should be obliged to newcomers. The goal is that the professional novices bales less at the focal point of schools.
At the end of the paper a little Surprise: Scheeres, the school inspectors of the order, "to weights, learning outcomes, stronger". The happened – to General astonishment – so far, which has helped about the successful peace Auer, Friedrich-Bergius-fell school through the inspection. Scheeres’ announcement to the inspectors should your be a consequence of the much-acclaimed Causa Bergius.
parents ' Board welcomes the strengthening of the English teaching
The country of the parents Committee welcomed in particular the additional English teaching and teacher training in mathematics. Now, the training would have to arrive but also in the school practice, which will not be given the "already difficult market situation" easy to implement. As many of the suggestions for improvement concerned only the primary schools, would have to be taken in a next step, the top schools in the focus, called the country of parents spokesman Norman Heise.
associations Berlin - Brandenburg welcomed in view of the shortcomings in the key skills, "the education Senator wants to improve the school quality and learning outcomes". Hildegard Bentele from the CDU, asked, "how long Scheeres at the expense of the Berlin student is allowed to improvise ?" Paul Fresdorf, the education policy spokesman of the FDP parliamentary group, called for the extension of the compulsory school to the last school year. The Scheeres steps announced were "partly true, as the increase of the English hours", but it's too late".
the green coalition partner spoke up: "Given the poor learning of the Berlin children and young people we support the quality strategy of Senator Scheeres," said education politician Marianne Burkert-Eulitz. Clearly, however, "that these are all long-term measures to be implemented only step by step to the school system“.
task division between teachers and newcomers?
Berlin's best-known educator, urged 2013 with the German teacher award, Robert Rough, that teaching should be differentiated to primary schools "in terms of the teaching staff". The teaching of core skills reading, Writing, and Arithmetic should be taken up by fully-trained, skilled teachers; the Exercises and the applications of newcomers,. Among his published on Tuesday "the Berlin education offensive" in addition, the proposal to relieve teachers of the bureaucratic tasks, "so that you can focus on the core business of teaching,". Not only the school, but each classroom teacher should receive "an Administrative assistant, who need not have a teaching qualification," to the side, holds the light, Berger, English, politics and history teacher for.More about
