The school-to-home transmission model
Adina Pescaru
Universitatea Petrol-Gaze din Ploiesti, Bdul Bucuresti, nr.39, Ploiesti
e-mail: aprilie6@yahoo.com


Schools reflect and perpetuate the dominant values and beliefs of the society they serve. Schools also
offer the opportunity for those who have not been traditionally successful to “make it”, generally by
learning the rules and succeeding in the areas dictated by the dominant culture. These are principles that
are reflected in the model presented. Educators who are using this approach have many choices to make
about what information they should transmit and to whom. Those choices strongly influence the degree to
which all the children can be successful.

Key words: culture of power, dominant culture, privileged society

Religion and reason in preschool education
Simona Popescu
Grup Scolar Servicii „Sfântul Apostol Andrei”, Str. Deditel nr. 4, Ploiesti
E-mail: monamicu@yahoo.com


The present study develops the concepts of “reason”, “wish” ,”magic”, “faith” and “religion”, as key
words used by children in various situations .Our study proves that very early in their life, at pre-school
age, being rational creatures, children are capable not only of thinking, but also of praying (as a means
of contacting Divinity). Therefore, they believe in action and based on specific wishes they communicate
with God. Similar to other ages, pre-school children use the acquired information in their everyday
experience to build up their own world, called “magic world, in which the basic elements are “magic
thinking” and “magic beliefs”.

Key words: magic beliefs, magic thinking ,prayer, wish, religion, preschool child.

New methodological orientations in the physical education activity

e-mail: lupu_lln@yahoo.com


We are often faced with the lack of bench-marks for the evaluation of the non-sportsmen groups. In order
to evaluate the progress that has been made by the students we believe necessary drawing up and carrying
into effect a series of trials fated for the evaluation of the driving qualities and new sport games which
should stimulate involvement in the lesson, kind of a „outdoor”, ”loisir”, that should not have a high cost,
to establish inter-cultural bonds even at an international level, to stimulate competition, to be able to
practice it no matter the age, and the examples could go on. For the beginning we directed our attention to

The carrying out of the physical education lesson where the strategies of action, communication and information are predominant
Marcel Deacu
Universitatea Petrol-Gaze din Ploiesti, Bd. Bucuresti 39, Ploiesti
e-mail: marceldeacu@yahoo.com


In the contemporary society, education must re-orientate its habits, content, institutional system and
technology it uses because of the "informational explosion" that involves improved methods of storage
and documentation, causes which radically alter the essence and the functions of the educational system
by no longer emphasizing memorization, but the formation of an individual by requesting a qualitative
leap. The synchronization of the social offer with the school product which is imposed by the actual
demands and by the perspectives of the society will facilitate the rapid integration of the youth in the
production activity and will prepare students for life.
Key words: action, communication, lesson, information instruction, model, strategy.





Teachers’ views of the purpose of education
Mariana Bradac
Universitatea Petrol-Gaze din Ploiesti, Bd. Bucuresti, 39, Ploiesti
e-mail: mbradac@upg-ploiesti.ro


The growth of the Science for All and Science-Technology-Society movements and the changing nature of
students in those countries with increased school retention rates, make considerations of the purpose of
physics teaching much more complex. When school physics was seen solely as the beginning of a
sequence with the end point of post-graduate university research students, things were simple. Both the
content of school physics courses and the pedagogy used in classrooms could be seen solely in terms of
the requirements of university physics departments, and the purpose of physics teaching to be as selection
into those departments. While these requirements remain, the physics teachers of many countries today
also are faced with competing purposes such as scientific literacy in which physics is a component of
general education.

Key words: teacher, physics, science, technology, education

Sport competition management
Marin Finichiu

e-mail: finichiu1@yahoo.com


Through the social-cultural dimensions, sport and sport competitions offer an unique occasion to meet other
people, to communicate with them, to take different roles, to gather certain moral attitudes (like tolerance,
respect for the other, etc.), to accept attitudes, connected with the living activity of certain feelings hardly felt in
other areas of the life, to accept certain positive elements of the life style, to adapt to the proposed objective and
to become socially active throughout other’s performances. By its forms of participation, sport and sport
competitions help to the child socialize by learning different roles in games, contests; on the other side, elder
people have in mind, among other things, to re-establish the contact with the social world; persons with special
needs through sport activity manage to surpass their limits by social recognition, while for performance athletes
the recipe for success is a mixture between social affiliation with competition elements in different degrees and
forms, in an environment proper for learning, relaxing time with outgoing that strengthened the team spirit and
with an added “fun”.

Gifted children and their teachers – training in the field
Teodora Draghicioiu
Centrul Judetean de Asistenta Psihopedagogica Prahova, str. Bobâlna, nr.26, Ploiesti
e-mail: t_draghicioiu@yahoo.com


The studies regarding the teachers specialized in the field of the differentiated training are less numerous,
in comparison with the students with a high IQ although the importance of the teachers’s behaviour is
emphasized by many researchers. For example, in 1975-1991, only 3% of the published works are
dedicated the training of the teacher of the students with high IQ. The additional training of the teachers
for differentiated teaching of the students is fully motivated from the psychological, pedagogical and
philosophical point of view, if we take into account the existence of several types of high IQ intelligence,
the complexity of the content of the curriculum and the aspect of the psychic development. According to
the “Law about education of the gifted young men, capable of high performances”, adopted by the
Romania`s Parliament in 8 January 2007, in our country, it is stipulated that the “National Centre for
Differentiated Teaching” will be founded, and the fourth chapter there are clear settlements about “The
Training of the Authorized Personnel”.

Key words: high ability, teachers` training, differentiated teaching.

Any man from the desk teacher has a vision over the world where he lives and which he anticipates.
Depending on it he acts and behaves in comparison with the students, seeking to help them and to
understand the world he comes into, with its advantages and disadvantages, with its opportunities and
dangers, with its happiness and anxieties .One of the books which offers the opportunity to the teachers of
seeing better the world where we form the young generation is “Paradoxicall Happiness. An Essay of The
Hyperconsuming Society”, written by the French sociologist Gilles Lipovetsk, to which I made a review
and which showed up to Polirom Publishing House from Iasi, in 2007.
