We met today with a neighbor on the porch, and since we were sitting together in the same line, we talked (when else). Her daughter is 4 years older than my Kinder, she already goes to the 2nd grade, so I decided to ask her about the current school education.
Leo Tolstoy in his year did not write this.
From the first class children have dictation. Let a little, let a few sentences, but dictation! I remember that in our time we took only hooks and sticks, taught the letters, and here we had dictation.
They do their homework together. The whole family. And half the internet. Because the Russian language program is like a linguist at the institute. Because textbooks are a problem book with exercises, and the whole theory is omitted. You need to buy all the books yourself, which are with theory, reference books, etc.
The library issues only problem books. Everything else – buy it yourself. Or you search on the Internet. Just yesterday, for example, they were sitting together-pumping materials for a lesson on the environment from the Internet (in our time, it was natural science like).
The program is such that by grade 11 there should be at least a bachelor’s degree! What is now being taught at the institute then?
Whether still will be oh-oh-oh.
From the first class they were immediately told that they needed to buy a photocopier in the classroom. As I understand it, there are few textbooks and from one book it is reproduced by everyone. Classes are equipped with projectors, the teacher has a laptop on the table. A neighbor says that her friend has a seventh-grader daughter, so they were obliged to buy small laptops for children to study. They are now not in notebooks, but in computers.
It turns out that our school has its own website and electronic journals are kept there, i.e. the parent at any time can go and see the performance of their child. Estimates are put on a ten-point scale. The teacher warns: If you see the top five, do not rejoice that you have a child who is an excellent student.
Children are not allowed out of school (building) until the end of the lesson. From the territory, of course, too. From the fifth grade, there is bandwidth per object. Primary school does not have this for some reason. Although there are passes in the gardens.
From the second grade, children study on Saturday. And specifically, on Saturday they have 2 lessons – physical education and music. Scattering on other days can not be, for it is necessary to study on Saturday.
In school form. Primary school has a burgundy color, middle classes have a green color, and high school students generally have a business style. There is no single form, there is color, so everyone walks in different shades of burgundy and green.
A neighbor says that the daughter walks with joy. I would like this joy to not fade away. She also said that her friend spends about 20 thousand rubles on tutors in the 7th grade, because she is in all subjects at once.
An English tutor (another friend) says that high school students are under such stress that it is scary to look at them. Because the exam is not all pass. And who did not pass – the certificate does not receive, respectively.
It is hard to believe that this is the same school that I once attended.
