  • 2. A new school year; new challenges, and another number of our Newsletter. It isnearly a miracle that this third number has been published. Had a few teachers and agroup of students not worked so hard, we would have given up. Last year we were surewe would be able to publish three numbers during 2010-11. However, schools arecomplex microcosms and what sometimes looks like perfectly possible can becomesuddenly really difficult to achieve, especially when teachers take part in so many differentactivities at the same time. The very nature of the Newsletter is increasing the level of difficulty: if it‟s going tobe used as an instrument to trigger cooperative, cross-curricular work, rather than as ameans of showing students‟ best achievements, there‟s no point in publishing things whichdo not meet these requirements. The projects shown in the Newsletter prove how hard people work. Let‟s take the„Create a Logo‟ activity as an example: one of the silliest ideas people have, concerningeducation, is that Art teachers can do anything at any time. As you can check here,designing a logo properly requires a lot of time and knowledge. Of course everybody canproduce a poster; a logo or a sign, but that shouldn‟t be called a project at all...Ourstudents have a great word for that: „un trabajín‟... In September we were lucky enough to get a new colleague into the Programme,Marcos Álvarez, who is currently teaching History in 4º ESO. Also, a new Technologyteacher, Gerardo Domeneq, is working hard to join the Stream next year. This will partiallyhelp to solve the problem which will appear when other teachers move to another school inSeptember, but that‟s another story… This school year we have got 40 students in the Bilingual Programme in 1º ESO:this is the first time in the 7 years of implementation of the bilingual sections project thatwe have more pupils in the bilingual stream than in the ordinary stream: good news for theprogramme, but a really serious challenge for the future as well. Someone somewhereshould face the fact that the survival of these studies requires inmediate action! As usual, the best of all, are our students: we have incorporated a new section„Former students, Current friends‟ to show how life has changed for those who left schoolafter going through the six years bilingual experience: nobody can imagine how proud wefeel of them! We have had great times during this semester: two of our students in 1º BACH,Sergio Álvarez and Estela Menéndez, were chosen to take part in the EuropeanParliament Model in Oviedo. Our new English colleague, María Cao, managed to convincethem to do some research in just a few days: well done, indeed! Also, 32 pupils from 3º ESO have just arrived from a trip to London where they hadthe chance to visit the bilingual school Cañada Blanch, and share some time with thestudents there. The second term is being really long, and everybody is a bit anxious feeling that thethird one will be too short and we will run out of time to finish all the activities which havebeen designed. Let‟s hope everything goes right and we manage to publish a new numberby June... Fernando Zapico Teijeiro Bilingual Section Coordinator 2

  • 12. Esteban López López (4º ESO B)Although the term "concentration camp" is often used as a term for all Nazicamps, there were in fact several types of camps in the Nazi system, of whichthe “concentration camp” wasjust one.As the war progressed, thedistinction betweenconcentration camps andlabor camps became blurred,as hard labor was alsoperformed in theconcentration camps. Chronologically talking, the use of concentration camps can be divided into three distinct periods: From 1933 to 1936. From 1936 to 1942. And from 1942 to 1944/1945.The standard of living conditions in theNazi concentration camps, variedaccording to the period and camp.From 1933 to 1936, the work, food,and housing were bearable, and 12
  • 13. most prisoners were detained for approximately a year.The camp I‟m going to talk about is Stutthof; this camp was the first one theNazis built out of Germany, it was located in the environs of the city of Danzig(in Poland) and it was also the last camp to be set free in May 1945.The first prisoners arrived in the camp on September 2nd. 1939: 250 Polish citizens. Two weeks later, on September 15th 1939, there were 6,000 prisoners in the camp: prisoners of war, scientists, etc… Most of them were executed by the SS. The commander of the camp was SS officer Max Pauli. After the war, Max Pauli was tried by an Allied tribunal and sentenced to death. The security officer of the camp was SS Captain Werner Hoppe. Despite the evidence of his participation in hundreds of murders, the court sentenced Werner Hoppe to nine years in prison. The camp was composed of 8 barracks for the inmates and a huge building (the "kommandantur") for the SS. It was called "the old camp". In 1942, the SS began to build a "new" camp: 30 barracks were added. In 1943, the Nazis added a crematory and a gas chamber. The gas chamber had a maximum capacity of 150 people at one time. When the SS had too many people to execute, they also used wagons as gas chambers. Between September 2nd1939 and May 10th 1945, 127,000 prisoners were registered upon their arrivalin the camp. The lowest estimation of the number of victims is 85,000. The realnumber is certainly much higher: the inmates who were selected for immediateexecution at their arrival were not registered.One of the worst crimes committed by the Nazis has been in Stutthof. ProfessorRudolf Spanner, an SS officer and "scientist", was owner of a small soapfactory located in Danzig. In 1940, he invented a process to produce soapfrom human fat. This "product" was called R.J.S. - "Reines Judische Fett" -which means "Pure Jewish Fat".Hundreds of inmates were executed for the"production" of soap. Rudolf Spanner wasvery proud of his invention. Followingtestimonies of some survivors, he used to 13
  • 14. spend hours and hours just to admire his "invention". At the liberation, the Alliesdiscovered chambers full of corpses used for the production of soap. After thewar, Rudolf Spanner was not arrested and continued his "researches"...There was no sanitary system, although the barracks were in awfulcondition.They were mostly Jews in this camp, but also were some politicalprisoners, and they were treated the same way as the others.It was placed in here: Testimony by Marian Kampinski“Transports with new arrivals came into camp daily. The new arrivals were mostly Hungarians.” “I never thought that such conditions like those I experienced first in the ghetto, then at Auschwitz, then at Stutthof, could exist or that they could get progressively worse. We went from one state of inhuman conditions to a further state of inhuman conditions. It was like going from one level of hell to a deeper level of hell. The stench, the crowding, the disease, the hunger, the cold was unbearable, but I kept the challenge of survival foremost in my mind and did my best to endure.” “People started dying more frequently;the death toll went up daily. Every night we lay shoulder-to-shoulder with thedead and dying.” I took this testimony from her book “Remember Me” 14
  • 15. Coordinated by Máximo Martín THE NAME OF THE ROSE Rodrigo Aguirre del Pino (2º BTC) PHILOSOFICAL ELEMENTS IN THE NOVELThe philosophy of Saint Thomas Aquinus was the marvel of the Middle Ages and thecrown jewel of Catholic scholarship. Yet, Aquino‟s philosophy was in many ways theculmination of 1,600 years of Greek philosophy. In fact, Aristotle gave Saint Thomas thetools he needed to prove the reasonableness and rationality of the Catholic faith. Thisunique blend of pagan wisdom (Aristotle) and revealed one (the Scriptures and teachingsof the church) was called Scholastic philosophy.Nominalism, whose most important figure was William of Ockam, is a philosophical streamwhich claims that faith and reason are impossible to combine. Theology takes care of faithand philosophy is in charge of the rational point of view, a rational explanation of Nature. THE BACKGROUND: MEDIEVAL SOCIETY THE THREAD: THE DISPUTE: FAITH MONKS‟ CRIMES VERSUS REASON Jorge of Burgos claims that knowledge doesn‟t change. I mean, the truth is permanent (the Bible says so) and it cannot be changed. They dodge (hiding or destroying) any other alternative answer. It seems that religion is based in mere fear; they dread the eternal pain or whatever. So, if laugh kills fear, why is religion needed? The Church would become unnecessary because people wouldn‟t be afraid. As seen before, Aristotle was the man of the moment: his ideas were fascinating; they charmed the monks. Whatever he said, it became true. If he supported laugh and laughed destroys the Church, this would be a real danger. Thus, God‟s will had to be enacted. 15
  • 16. CREATIVE WRITING INVENTIONS (I): IPOD WATCH WITH WIRELES SYSTEMA new ipod model has been created: the ipod watch. It mixes the old ipod touchand a new elastic belt in a range of colours.It can perform very useful functions, such as surfing the internet, listening tomusic and even making phone calls. However, that is not all: it also includes anew way of listening to our music: the wireless head phones. You will be able tolisten to your favourite songs without any wires.Besides, its bluetooth helps you to update your files easily.INSTRUCTIONS: They are extremely simple. You just have to press the on/offbutton in order to switch on your watch. Later, you will be able to explore all thedifferent applications of your watch thanks to the touch screen with its differentmenus.INVENTIONS (II): NUCLEAR SHARPENER Martín García González (4º ESO B)If you don‟t like spending your time sharpening your pencils; if you hate whenyour pencils are easiily broken, if you need to buy a new sharpener everyweek...

  • 17. Emilio Álvarez Rodríguez (2º BTCH)Located in the west part of Switzerland, and in the eastern part of France, theLHC (Large Hadron Collider ) is the most expensive and biggest experiment ofthe human being.It is the worlds largest and highest-energy particleaccelerator. It is in Ginebra, in the CERN (Conseil Européen pour la RechercheNucléaire ) and it was created to verify some experiments related with theatoms. It tries to verify the laws of nature related with the mass and the matery.The LHC lies in a tunnel 27 km in circumference and it consists in a very hugeparticle accelerator which increase the energy of some ions and makes animpact between them trying to understand the first times of the universe like theBig Bang. It started to work in 2008 but there was some problem with an heliumtank so it has to be fixed and it wasn‟t until 2009 when it was produced the firstimpact.More than 2000 physics has worked on this proyect and more than 34 countrieshas given money to its construction.It has costed more than 2500 million ofeuros.In only two years, physics have been able to verify some important laws,the most famous one: the Einstein formula: E mc 2Nowadays, they are working in the most important experiment that they havetried until now, they are searching an atom particle called the Higgs Boson andif it exists, physics would been able to demostrate why everything has mass.But, everything related with the LHC isn‟t good, for example, it was reported bya man to the Hawaii courts because of many reasons like the possiblity ofdestroying the world if something worng happens in the LHC but the scientificcommunity repel that idea because it hasn‟t any scientific demostration.Another thing, was that when the LHC was founded, an Indian girl killed herselfthrowing throuhg a window because she thought that the world was going todissapear.Recently, Sthephen Hawking has said that most of the experiments which areinvestigated in the LHC are irrelevant and the most important ones are thediscovery of new dimensions or the possibility of travelling to the future.Nobody knows what will happen with LHC but anyway it will help to understandbetter where we come from and why life exists. 17
  • 18. Diego Tascón (4º ESO B)Rock music is a genre of popular music that entered the mainstream in the1960s. It has its roots in 1940s and 1950s rock and roll, rhythm and blues,country music and also drew on folk music, jazz and classical music. The soundof rock often revolves around the electric guitar, bass guitar, drums, andkeyboard instruments such as hammond organ, piano, or, since the late 60s,synthesizers.A group of musicians specializing in rock music is called a rock band or rockgroup. Many rock groups consist of an electric guitarist, lead singer, bassguitarist, and a drummer, forming a quartet.ELECTRIC DRUMS MICROPHONE BASSGUITARSUBGENERES:The Rock has a lot of subgeneres such as Alternative Rock, Emo, Grunge,Hard Rock, Heavy Metal, Indie Rock, Progressive Rock, Punk Rock and muchmore.FUSION GENRES:This Rock has also fusion genres, that are a mix between rock and other styles,there are a lot of fusion genres such as Blues Rock, Country Rock, Folk Rock,Industrial Rock, Pop Rock, Rap Rock and morePersonally my favourite subgeneres of Rock are Grunge, Hard Rock, HeavyMetal and Punk RockMy favourits gruops from theese subgeneres : Grunge – Nirvana – Smells like teen spirit Hard Rock – ACDC - Rock and Roll train Heavy Metal – Metallica – Master of puppets Punk Rock – Sum 41 – The Hell SongOne of my favourites kind of Rock is the fusion genre Rap Rock wich hassugeneres too as Rapcore or Rap MetalMy favourite groups from Rap Rock : Rapcore - Zebrahead - Anthem Rap Metal – Linkin Park – Faint 18
  • 19. Lidia Díaz Fidalgo and Claudia González Corrales (4º ESO B)1. Marcos, do you like being a teacher?I really love this job despite the nervous breakdown I suffer when I mark someof your exams. I‟ve always loved it. This profession provides me with thechance of helping my students not only with the learning of History but also, asa class teacher, to clarify and define their future personalities in many domains;punctuality, accountability, discipline, respect and self-respect, teamwork,proactivity… in short, some values I firmly believe in, that will help to makeeasier their (your) adult life.Nevertheless, it‟s true: Sometimes I feel like preaching in the desert...2. When did you decide to become a teacher?I guess that I did when as a student I came across with a fantastic teacher androle model: my Maths teacher Mr. Geijo. Mathematics was not the mostimportant subject I learnt with him but the vocation of being a good example. Ihave always thought ever since that the best way of teaching values is being agood example to follow.3. How old were you when you started to work?I was 25 years old when I passed my state exam and started working as ateacher in Comunidad Valenciana.4. Why did you choose history?History was my favorite subject at school along with some other humanisticdisciplines. Ive been surrounded by History, Art, and Music books even before Ican remember so when the time came for me to choose a degree in University Idecided to attend to the Faculty of Geography and History in Oviedo.5. Is it very difficult to teach students of our age?Maybe the hardest side of teaching 4th ESO is to make the students understandthis is a turning point in their academic life. This grade is the end of thecompulsory education and as you should understand so far, the level ofcontents you have to learn is increasing proportionally, just as much as theeffort required.6. Do you prefer to teach in English or in Spanish?I feel comfortable in both languages but teaching in English is a new andthrilling experience. Since this is my first year in the CLIL bilingual project I haveto fix my methodology with the trial and error method, so I‟m learning so much.I‟m so excited with the drafting of the notes and the preparation of some othermaterials for my lessons. The Bilingual learning is a fantastic and useful option Iwish I had had available when in school. You kids should feel lucky andthankful! 19
  • 20. 7. In wich language are the results betterBelieve it or not the results are better for those students using English as a toollanguage in their exams.8. Have you ever taught History in other high schools?Ive taught before in Comunidad Valenciana. The Bilingual education there isapproached in a slightly different way.9. Have you ever traveled with the students?Certainly, in the past I used to go with my students of 1º BAT every two years. Ijoined to several study trips in Grenade-Cordova-Seville and also in Italy. SinceI have new personal responsibilities I have to say no to such projects but I liketo get involved in closer and shorter day trips.10. What is your favorite topic in History?There are many fascinating passages in History. The best thing of readingHistory books is that you can always recognize in the present similar events,anecdotes, biographies, conflicts etcetera that happened long ago. They sayHistory repeats itself once and again. The knowledge of the past helps you tounderstand the present and shows you how to be on your guard before thefuture.11. Can you recommend us a History TV program?You can find fantastic TV programs on history in the Internet. Its quite easy."Memoria de España" is an ambitious project that collects the whole Spanishhistory. The chapters regarding the 19th and 20th century are very useful forsome of the contents of 4oESO.The British are also very keen on history- if you type "BBC documentary" in theyoutube you‟ll surely find interesting stuff, no matter the period of history.12. Do you think that the films related with history helps us to study?Yes, Definitely. It helps you to empathize with the cosmogony of every age ofHistory. Its useful not only for the contents but also to learn how the people ofthe past talked, dressed, thought and suffered. The problem is that the moreyou learn about history the more demanding you turn about the plot, costumeand the historical characters depicted in the film. Unfortunately not all theproductions you can find are historically accurate.13. To finish the interview, who is your favorite historical character?There‟re plenty of them. Now Im reading a biography on Talleyrand, the FrenchForeign affairs minister in the times of Napoleon. This diplomat is the perfectexample of survivor. He managed to rise as a leading figure of the AncienRégime, the French Revolution, the Napoleonic Empire, and the Restoration.As you know those regimes were antithetical so Talleyrand was a little foxyturncoat, able to row in favour and against the stream. You have to be quitesmart to remain afloat after a hundred storms in the sea. 20
  • 21. Robert G Moore It is great to be teaching here in Mieres. First I would like to say that Ihave really enjoyed getting to know the students and teachers of IES SanchezLastra. I was really happy to find out that many students are interested inlearning English! I can‟t wait to teach you interesting things about the UnitedStates and I hope that you will tell me more about Mieres and the rest ofAsturias. Teaching in Spain is much different than teaching in the United States. Inoticed that you have your lockers in the classrooms. In the United States ourlockers are located in the hall. Could someone tell me why I have to walk to thestudent‟s classroom? In the U.S.A. students change from classroom toclassroom and the teachers get their own classroom. You are very lucky tohave your own classroom! I have to say that I have really enjoyed hearing some of your stories inclass. Some of the jokes I heard were great while others were so silly that theywere actually funny. The other day a student walked into the classroom and Iasked him: Why are you late? He said: There was a man that lost a hundredEuro bill. I said: That‟s nice. Were you helping him look for it? The studentsaid: No. I was standing on it. I asked the students what they had learned inclass that day. The students said to me: don‟t be late to class and don‟t loseyour money in this class.Live, love, learn and laugh and enjoy your school year! OUR STUDENTS’ OPINIONWell, I want to explain who Robert is. Robert is the new Americanteacher of English at my school.He is very fun. We have our lesson with him on Fridays. He alwayscomes to class with fun exercises.The most interesting thing is that in our classes we speak a lot ofEnglish, and this is very important to find a good job in the future.For example, the other day we played a special bingo. First heexplained how to play and then we asked a lot of questions and itwas really fun. He is very patient with all the students. 21
  • 22. He is our teacher/helper of English. He comes from Ohio, USA.He is about 1.79 cm tall, with blond hair and blue eyes.In my opinion, he is a very interesting person, honest and affable. Heteaches so well and he doesn’t have any problems with anybody.When he is angry, he never shouts like Spanish teachers. He is quiet and myclassmates shut up. Awesome! Pelayo Martinez – 2º BWe have a new teacher from the USA. His name is Robert.He is tall with blue eyes and very good-looking. He is nice, kind andalways happy. He speaks English very well, of course, and theactivities we do in his class are very interesting. He is the perfectteacher! Coordinated by Pilar González “In the firts term, we did our own “San Silvestre” race. We ran about sixlaps around the court. It was a competition between 1ºB and 1ºA.in my opinion,we did it very well. 1ºB won, and in our class the first were Álvaro and PaulaRubio, and in 1º A Claudia and Hinault won. After the race, some of us werevery tired. In Mieres there was a “San Silvestre”, too. It was on the 3º of December.I didn´t run because I was sick, but I would like to go. My mum saw it and told me that my class mate won the race and he wasÁlvaro. Cristina was the third, Aitor was the second, Omar the fifth, Miguel theseventh and Enol the eigth. I hope that next year I could run the race.” Paula Martos Fernández (1ºB) “Our San Silvestre´s race was fantastic. Both classes tried to do our best.We ran only six laps but at the end we were very tired. Any people run betterthan us but we tried to do the better possible. I ran the San Silvestre´s race inthe Town Hall Garden. I was the seventh but the race was very funny. Enol, meand Armando (our friend) arrived at the same time and he recieved a big prize.Aitor was the second and recieved a premium too. Cristina was the third. Afterthe race a man asked Álvaro if he played football or running and he said yes.The man asked Álvaro if he wanted to be in the running team and he said no.” Miguel Serrano Rodríguez (1ºB) 22
  • 23. Amanda Trigo porrón and Ylenia Marqués Álvarez (2º ESO B)Normally, our P.E. lessons are at school: we have them in the sports centre orplay in the yard if it is not raining, but on 14th October, the students of 2nd ESOfrom IES Sanchez Lastra went for a long walk. It was a special PE lesson thatwe enjoyed a lot. We went to Cenera, a valley not very far from Mieres.We left school at twenty past nine in the morning. Our route was Mieres, Seana,Paxio, Valdecuna and Cenera.We walked about three hours and then we stopped to have a snack and a rest.We needed it.After that we went on walking. When we arrived to „El Molin‟, a very popularrestaurant, it was almost one o‟clock.We had lunch there and then we played football, took pictures and had fun.Then we came back to school, of course walking, but this part was easierbecause we didn‟t hike.We stopped to drink some water from a font on our way back, and we playedwith it. In fact, I finished soaked.We arrived to school at two o‟clock. All of us were exhausted but it was a greatday. We think that it is very good to have these activities: we do physical activityand have fun. 23
  • 24. I expected big changes when Istarted University, and there havebeen many, but not as many as Ithought. As teachers don‟t take careabout their students, they onlyexplain their lessons and we have tomanage to take notes fromwherever we can.That means that marks are not asgood as we would like, but everyonesays you cannot expect to pass all I live in a flat with two other girls andyour exams at the first try. With lab I‟ve made some good friends inpractices in the morning and lessons here. The only problem is thatduring the afternoon, life has got almost every people are from placesreally busy, so there‟s no time to near Santiago, and they go to theirstudy at home during the week. homes at weekend. So the onlyStress has increased in the last ones who stay here are the peoplemonths, but I guess we were born to who came from other regions likeget stressed, so the only way to me. We spend weekends studyingsurvive is taking it easy. and we go partying on Wednesday and Thursday night, when youngReferring to living in a different people are at the town.place, I thought it would be worsethan it really is as I have to do To sum up, in my opinion studying ineverything on my own.
