...1 Introduction Programming/Planning —together with diagnosing, conducting lessons and evaluating— constitutes one of the four basic tasks that teaching entails. This is so because teaching necessitates some kind of organization. The need to plan lies on the high degree of complexity of teaching and on the manifold nature of those variables that affect the different elements upon which it is built up, such as physical spaces, timetables, teachers, pupils… According to De Pablo (1992), planning is a decision-taking process by teachers in terms of anticipating their teaching practice. Gimeno & Pérez (1992) consider planning as an intermediate stage between theory and practice in which teachers draw up their educational interventions from a purely theoretical point of view. The main features of this model of planning/programming within the frame of our present educational system are: Based on the teaching-learning process. Its aim is the development of our students’ capacities. Contents make reference to three different but complementary spheres: concepts, procedures and attitudes. Special attention is paid to activities, resources and the organization of the FL setting (space, time, groupings). Each and every of its components (objectives, contents, basic competences, activities, resources, evaluation…) are intimately interwoven. Offers a flexible model open to continuous suggestions and corrections. 2 Contextualization Our present-day curricular...

Estate Planning for Same Sex Couples

...Estate Planning for Same Sex Couples I. Introduction The benefits of marriage are unavailable to same-sex couples. Moreover, outdated intestacy statutes fail to recognize the close family bond between same-sex partners. Moreover, most intestacy laws discriminate against same-sex couples in that gay or lesbian relationships are generally considered invalid for the purposes of distributing the estate of a deceased partner who dies without a will. Accordingly, in order to reap inheritance and tax benefits that are automatically afforded to traditional married couples, these same-sex couples must rely on extensive and creative legal planning. There are several tools that provide solutions to this issue. Contract based estate planning techniques are the most commonly used tools for distributing a decedent’s property at death. Though the following planning mechanisms provide certain advantages, they are also accompanied by various disadvantages. II. Wills A will is an instrument by which a person directs dispositions of property to take effect upon death. It is the only document that allows a decedent’s probate assets to pass testate to persons of his or her choosing as opposed to passing via the strict laws of intestacy, under which the surviving partner would receive nothing. Even in the presence of strategies used to avoid probate such as intervivos trusts, wills are an essential precautionary measure to demonstrate the intent to pass property outside of probate...

INTRODUCTION TO PLANNING [pic] Planning is the most fundamental of all the management functions. Before a manager can tackle any management functions he/she must devise a plan. A plan binds all the functions together and makes them work in synchronism. A plan is a blueprint for goal achievement that specifies the necessary resource allocations, schedules, tasks, and other actions. A goal is a desired future state that the organization attempts to realize. Goals are important because an organization exists for a purpose, and goals define and state that purpose. Goals specify future ends; plans specify today’s means. The word planning incorporates both ideas: It means determining the organization’s goals and defining the means for achieving them. Planning allows managers the opportunity...

Family Owned Estate Planning

...Family Owned Business Estate Planning In this case study, as John’s financial advisor, I have been tasked with reducing, or eliminating the potential estate tax burden of John’s estate. Additionally, I am tasked with maximizing the amount of wealth transferred to John’s heirs. John, age 61, is married to Jane, age 60. He owns Victory Company, a family business professionally valued at $5.6 million. He and Jane have three children and seven grandchildren. One son, Paul, manages Victory Company and will someday own it. John's overall wealth is about $15 million.
