Project Report

I. Background 

  • Who are the learners?
There are about thirty eighth graders participating in this class as their extra curricular activity, and they come from different classes with mixed English levels. Before signing up for this class, they are supposed to read the terms of application that they are highly motivated to learn English and have at least an intermediate level of English listening comprehension. This class is conducted only ONCE a week, so they should have plenty of time to prepare for the tasks.

Building Teaching Skills Through The Interactive Web



As a member of the English Advisory Group here in Taiwan, I am usually required to do presentations about innovative teaching at workshops for teachers from junior high schools. That’s why I have to constantly expose myself to original ideas and put them into practice in my class before I can share them with other teachers.  I’m also the one who officially blogs for the city government about all the important events regarding English teaching in Taichung City, which is the third largest city in Taiwan (http://eng-j.guidance.tc.edu.tw/). Therefore, not only I’m highly motivated to polish myself in teaching but I have the influence to promote what I have learned from this course to many English teachers in Taichung.
