Me and You < Mondadori Education Il concetto di didattica per competenze comincia ad affermarsi intorno alla metà degli anni ’90, nei documenti dell’Unione Europea, come il Libro bianco sull’istruzione e formazione1 a cura di Edith Cresson, allora Commissario Europeo con delega alla scienza, ricerca ed educazione, in cui si legge: «In tutti i paesi d’Europa si cercano di identificare le “competenze chiave” e di trovare i mezzi migliori di acquisirle, certificarle e valutarle. Viene proposto di mettere in atto un processo europeo che permetta di confrontare e diffondere queste definizioni, questi metodi e queste pratiche». L’idea di competenza deriva dall’ambito lavorativo, dove indica “il patrimonio complessivo di risorse di un individuo nel momento in cui affronta una prestazione lavorativa o il suo percorso professionale”.2 La dimensione della potenzialità e quella della natura integrata della competenza sono fondamentali, perché le ritroveremo anche nell’applicazione al mondo della scuola. 1. 2. 4. competenza digitale

Jane Austen, Feminist Icon 8 Truly Feminist Lessons From Jane Austen That Every 21st Century Woman Can Use | Bustle As she established herself as a serious writer, Jane Austen showed us all that her bread and butter were her women's stories. Her badass-ness manifested in proving that that novels written by women about women can uncover real truths, challenge, and unseat any reader — and, come on, is there any more feminist statement than women are (gasp!) human beings who are just as complex and interesting as men?

Controversial Subjects in the Classroom Overview: Invariably, issues are raised in classrooms that bring charged responses from students. How can educators set the stage for safe, respectful dialogue and learning? Three students in a college Shakespeare course I taught accused me of trying to make them say two female characters in A Midsummer Night's Dream were lesbians. Since my lesson plan involved Shakespearean diction and close reading, I didn't take them seriously. I laughed. My response made the students even angrier, and they stormed out of the room, one gliding defiantly out on roller blades. It turns out, after having discussed race in Othello and anti-Semitism in Merchant of Venice, these three theater majors decided I was there to promote my "politically correct" worldview and anticipated the introduction of another taboo topic, homosexuality.
