здравствуйте , Алексей. Меня зовут Ирина, давно наблюдаю за вашими публикациями на сайте. просто в восторге от информации, которую вы дали к учебнику "Millennium" для 7 класса. а для 8 класса есть что-нибудь подобное?

спасибо огромное! хотя это слабо сказано...

Спасибо за добрые слова, всегда приятно осознавать, что то, что ты делаешь, кому-то поможет в работе. К Милленниуму для 8 класса информацию уже собрал, размещу на следующей неделе. Хочу еще раз прочитать ее внимательно и убедиться, что ничего важного не упустил. Да еще в последнюю минуту нашел интересные видеоролики, которыми можно дополнить уроки, так что и их там, где можно, тоже включу.

не ожидала так быстро получить ответ. очень рада, большое спасибо.

у меня тут созрел еще один вопрос. на следующий год администрация подталкивает меня подать заявление на высшую категорию. страшновато, конечно. живу в отдаленном районе, учителей ИЯ двое, школа средняя в самом широком смысле слова. короче, варюсь в собственном соку.

читая требования на высшую категорию, наткнулась на "публикации". наш директор сказал, что если вы участвуете в форумах, делитесь информацией, это и есть публикации и об этом можно упомянуть в заявлении. поясните, пожалуйста, эту ситуацию.

заранее спасибо.

Попробую ответить здесь, хотя, если честно, если задать этот же вопрос в соответствующей теме, то уверен, что будет много ответов опытных и квалифицированных учителей.

Если я правильно понимаю, в разных регионах требования к аттестующемуся учителю несколько разные. Я посмотрел Ваш профиль - вы хе из Иркутской области? Я был в Иркутске, проводил семинары в ИПК в сентябре, в ИПК работают очень грамотные специалисты. Мне кажется, что подробно требования к аттестации Вам лучше всего скажут в ИПК, так как они знают все местные требования. Что касается публикаций, то онлайн-публикации можно включать в список публикаций, для этого надо в библиографию скопировать адрес из адресной строки браузера и в скобках написать "по состоянию на... дата".

Если Вы хотите получить письменное подтверждение онлайн-публикации Вашей разработки, то можно поступить следующим образом: разместить на форуме свою разработку и указать что Вы хотели бы принять участие в голосовании на размещение Вашей разработки в разделе "Реферируемые статьи". Если за это проголосует достаточное количество участников форума, то Ваша разработка будет перемещена в раздел "Реферируемые статьи", а Вам по почте будет выслано благодарственное письмо за публикацию. Может быть, такой вариант Вам подойдет?

Ага, понятно... ну до публикаций мне далеко, это громко сказано. я указала в заявлении на аттестацию, что являюсь участником форума этого сайта, имею возможность общаться с ведущими методистами страны. думаю, это немаловажно. общение с вами может заменить курсы повышений квалификации.

:rolleyes: Не смогла удержаться, чтобы не присоединиться к восторгу, высказанному коллегой по цеху в Ваш, Алексей, адрес. Полностью согласна с Ириной. Уверена, что мое уважение к Вам, Алексей, разделяют сотни моих коллег, имеющих возможность пользоваться Вашей помощью, которой Вы так щедро и бескорыстно делитесь с нами!!!
