desea aprender busca todas las estrategias posibles para aprender, me quede sorprendida
con este alumno de 5to de secundaria al ver como apoyaba a su compañero para
que pueda entablar la conversación en Inglés. Se colocó el dialogo en la frente
para ayudar a su compañero a mantener el contacto visual en la conversación y utlizó la técnica del look up and say technique. Esta técnica no requiere memorizar el dialogo
solo basta leer las líneas de la conversación mentalmente y repetirlas mirando
a su compañero . Esta técnica es muy útil porque permite que los alumnos interactúen
al conversar en una forma real y natural. Esta es una de las características más
importantes de esta técnica ,especialmente cuando se aprende un idioma
extranjero porque permite que los alumnos desarrollen la fluidez del idioma. Como docente del area de Inglés estoy convencida que la técnica look up and say technique es muy buena para ayudar a
los estudiantes a desarrollar la habilidad de speaking en la enseñanza del
Monsignor Lorenzo Adorni Tuperti was born in Busetto , region of Parma - Italy on June 17 ,1920. He went to elementary school in Coltera town. He grew up in a catholic family that is why when he was 18 years old because of God’s call he entered the Missionary Institute of Penago - Italy. In 1934, he came to Peru to
continue with his ecclesiastic studies in "Saint Toribio" Seminar in Lima. He moved to Huancayo in 1945 and continued his studies in this city in “Saint Pio X seminar” where he received the title of Deacon and later on he would ordain as a priest. After that, he was transferred to Trujillo city and continued with his works.
Thus, on August
15, 1965 he founded Dante Alighieri School on the south part of Trujillo and
from which he would become the Principal for 33 years. During this time he was
very concerned about the integral education of children and teenagers ; next to
the school, he built up Saint Martin de Porres church with the help of many
generous Trujillian people.
He also worked hard with the Aguarunas y Huambitas
youngsters by giving them lodge, food and scholarships in technological
institutes like Senati y Sencico to study a profession that they would later use
in their communities. Likewise, he helped the Seminarists to prepare for the priesthood by giving them spiritual guide.
As a Religion teacher, he delivered the God’s word and
instilled values, good morals in students to nurture the qualities that would enhance their moral growth.
He worked as a Religion teacher in "Santa Isabel" G.U.E school in Huancayo, "José Faustino Sánchez Carrión" G.U.E school, San Jose Obrero school,” Juan Pablo II” Pedagogic Institute and Dante Alighieri school in Trujillo. In 1997.As a principal of Dante Alighieri School, he worked
closely with the students by giving them support and spiritual guide. He was Italian but he loved Peru, He was fascinated
by the Peruvian culture, customs and traditions that is why he was always
interested in diffusing the Peruvian culture throughthe art of dance.
In 1997, for his remarkable work in education Monsignor Lorenzo Adorni Tuperti was awarded
the "Palmas Magisteriales en Grado de Comemdador" by the Peruvian
Ministry of Education, recognition that marked his life as an educator. The award granted by the Republic of Peru, is recognized as one o f the most significant awards to citizen who have shown, in their academic and profesional lives, an oustanding contribution to education, science and culture of Peru.
After this, other authorities like the Mayor Jose Murgia Zanier, the archbishopric
and VII Region Director also congratulate and gave him recognition for this
after 33 years he decided to retire from the administration of the school
because he was tired and very sick . He
died on September 1st, 2003 at 8:06 pm at Víctor Lazarte Hospital-Trujillo when he was 83 years old.
After his death, he left a great emptiness among the people who loved and
admired him. He was mourned at Dante Alighieri School and at Basilica Mayor Cathedral.
During his funeral lots of people, teachers, students and the religious
community of Trujillo followed him to his final resting place. He has gotten many awards for his great work
as shepherd, teacher, and priest; however, none of these recognitions could
reach his great labor. Now, the people who have had the chance to meet this
great and generous man can only feel respect, esteem and admiration when remembering. READING ACTIVITY : http://www.slideshare.net/msh03/reading-activity-26219654
Once again it was held the ANNUAL SCHOOL OLIMPICS-2012 at Dante Alighieri School.
The purpose of this activity is to inspire students to participate in sports and adopt and live healthy lifestyles".
There is no doubt the importance of sports and games in school encompasses more than just the benefit of physical activity, it increases students’ self-esteem and mental alertness that is why it is necessary for every student to practice school sports .
So, students from primary and secondary levels put weeks of training and preparation to practice as they compete in track and field events against each class. According to Theodore Hesburgh, author of "The Importance of School Sports and Education," it is imperative for school students to have access to sports and games.
Not only does it empower youth and promote higher self-esteem, it also motivates students, enables them to earn better grades, maintain a healthy weight, preventing chronic diseases and learns the skills necessary to maintain a healthy lifestyle.
Finally, I want to thank my partner Arlette Uceda, my dear students and my classroom committee for their valuable cooperation during the Olympics’ week
