Areas, cycles and basic knowledge: Glossary so as not to get lost with the terminology of the primary curriculum

In the school that will bring the Celaá law students no longer learn only the contents in a memorabate way. Now they develop their "competences" and "basic knowledge" to manage their "exit profile" by finishing compulsory education. In class they do not attend to the teacher's lesson and perform tasks, but work in "projects" and resolve "learning situations". The subjects have been replaced by "field areas" and academic years, for "cycles". It returns the knowledge of José Luis Rodríguez Zapatero, popularly known as cone. There will be no education for citizenship but civic values. A lot of terminology comes from the 2006 Loe and the 1990 Logse, but the pedagogues of the Ministry of Education have also created denominations expressly for Lomloe. For example, the "socio-emotional sense" that mathematics will have.

It becomes the primary division that was in the Logse and the LEE with the cycles (of two academic years each) because it is considered that at this stage the students mature at different ages and what is not learned a year is assimilated the next. Therefore, they say, it can only be repeated in the pair courses and the promotion is "automatic" in the odds. The curriculum is better structured than that of the PP Lomce because it details what each cycle enters, while the Wert law gave some content without saying what course they had to learn.

It can be studied by areas of knowledge, a method where there is no language at 9.00, social at 10 and English at 11, but all the subjects come together and are taught "globalized". The work can be for projects that work the communicative, social, scientific and multilingual skills by doing a teamwork, for example, on fires in Greece. The Ministry says that "reinforce self-esteem, autonomy, reflection and responsibility."

It makes knowledge of the natural, social and cultural environment. The new curriculum allows to provide separate nature science and social sciences, as the PP defends, or giving them together, as the PSOE wants and was before Lomce. In practice, there are communities that ignored wert and have kept them together. Teachers supporters to study by areas and projects also bet on gathering them although then before the inspection they make the 'trap' and put the disaggregated notes.

Civic and ethical values will be taught in «any of the courses of the third cycle»; That is, only between 10 and 12 years old. With the PP there was the subject of social and civic values and was given in each and every one of the courses for students who did not chose religion. With the Celaá law there is no alternative to religion and this no longer counts for the note. The name of the qualifications, by the way, is maintained as now: insufficient, well, remarkable and outstanding. Also in this there is debate. In the Logse there were no suspense but "needs to improve".

This is now called the contents that the student will learn. They are complemented by the competitions (a term that refers rather to the skills) and with the evaluation criteria.

"Set of indispensable competences for the student to reach their personal development, resolve in an ethical, critical and sustainable way situations and problems in the different areas of life, seek and take advantage of improvement opportunities, develop their socialization, continue their training itinerary and participate Actively in society ». Lighter: what the student has to know when finishing basic education.

They are practices that favor the acquisition of competences. They propose a situation or a contextualized problem and of a certain complexity for the student to be resolved "in a creative and effective way they involve the start-up, in an integrated manner, of a whole series of resources and knowledge".

There will be a test that will have to do all students at 4th of primary school (in the LOMCE is set at 3º). It will have "informative, training and counselor". It will not be counted for the note or it will be used to compare between CCAA. Surprisingly does not appear in the curriculum, the 6th primary test, which does name the Lomloe. Why? Sources of the Ministry explain that the State marks "minimum criteria" and the CCAA apply them, while the 6th must be agreed between the Ministry and the CCAA and will be subject to a subsequent regulation.
