whos bernstein watch


    I have just taken a JEB exam in post secondery education a questions about motivation was linked to bernstrein .The gp is totally confused as we have never heard of him or her can anyone help

    Bernstein is a man who lives on a train and harasses travellers.

    your probably right !

    At least we are not the only ones who dont know

    There was a composer called Bernstien who composed West Side Story if that helps.

    ok i dont know what JEB is or what your talking about really, but the only Bernstein i know to do with education is the one who talked about Speech Patterns like Elaborated code and Restricted code. You prob have no idea what im talkin about so ill go now! x

    Yes, Basil Bernstein looked at Resticted and Elaborated Verbal Codes. Restricted Code being the code you use with people you know well, e.g. family with the ratio of non-verbal communication being greater than verbal communication. Elaborated code is the verbal code you use with people you don't know or if you are trying to teach a new subject to somone e.g. a Primary School Child. This code is more for informing that the restricted code; the restricted code is more for chats between two people for example.

    Hey, try this link:


    its about Bernstein (the composer).

    That's not very nice! (Anti-semitic)

    free speech.

    Bernstein specialised in Non Verbal Communication with regards to children and young people and their preogression through life ito adolescence
