Host: Sherry (東山高中 陳昭伶老師)
Welcome to Sherry's board game wonderland! How many games can you use in a period of class but be kept for maybe more than 10 years? Which game is such a magic that can motivate low- achieve learners so much?
In Sherry's class, all she wants to teach is not only English, but also the spirit of cooperation and collaboration. No matter it is a 5- minute board game, or a 10- minute one, Sherry always tries to set up an English class which can enable learners to play, learn, and work together. A flash card is no longer a specific card for teaching once only, it can be used like porker for low- achievement learners, or a writing or story telling resource for high- achievement ones. Her teaching aids are not disposable, but multi-functional. When a teacher combines her interests with what she teaches and how she teaches English, Sherry has become one of the best example of fun teaching and learning.

Ms. Wu designed a worksheet which included simple drawing and understanding of people's personal information. Students had to draw images based on what they had in the worksheet (one for themselves and the other one for a missing partner). Once they finished drawing, they had to design questions to find out who is their missing partners; therefore, they have to speak!

Who is going to teach English? Your answer? No, not the teacher, but the students. When a teacher- centered class turns into a learner- centered class, teachers have more time to observe what students are doing and if they are doing well. In the class of Ms. Li and Ms. Liu , they activate teaching and learning, practice multi-evaluation, and inspire students' ability as a whole. From the creation of teaching aids to teaching a lesson, all the students are encouraged to express themselves in their own way.

In the class of Ms. Zeng, students had to cooperate and collaborate to create a famous person from other countries; therefore, they needed to go check the information about the country they chose no matter through the Internet or any other resources. Every group had to hold an international interview to introduce this famous person in each group at the end. Maybe you would doubt the participation of every group member. Ms. Zeng already assigned the roles in each group, and all they had to do was to find out who played certain role to have the interview been proceeded.

To motivate learners doesn't mean to create a lot of games or design many fantastic teaching aids. In this class, being simple is attractive and fun. Culturally disadvantage children can't be left behind.

Mr. Chen provided several interesting ways to promote students' reading, speaking, and writing. It's better to take a look at the process and result in the videos.
