台日空中共同備課



Akiko, BettieGuo-jhen視訊空中共同備課:
1. 交換第一次視訊交流之心得及共同檢討問題缺失
2. 決定第二次交流主題及進行的流程
3. 共同發展學習單以利提供學生必要英語用法之鷹架
4. 再度確認二校學生交流之目標
(This article was originally posted on 李國禎的英語教學.)
Ever since Akiko and I determined to make this Skype exchange happen regardless of all the hurdles ahead of us this September, we have been doing “collaborative lesson planning” through Skype many times. Besides our passion and dedication for this project, the idea is that we need to come up with workable lesson plans, worksheets and other materials to meet the goal of effective communication between both sides.

台日英語視訊交流




The purpose of learning a language is about not only how to get good grades on written tests but how to communicate with it in an authentic context. With the help of technology, now we can create such an environment for students to apply what they’ve learned from textbooks to communicating with their Japanese counterparts without leaving the country.

分組合作學習到校教學演示


(This article was originally posted on 李國禎的英語教學.)
Doing a teaching demonstration at a school located in a relatively remote area in Changhwa County, I devised some tasks targeting strategies like making predictions, wording meaning in context, making inferences and so on. All in all, the activities worked well to serve their purpose, which is to help students be a more active reader and comprehend a given text in group work.

Show and Tell and Hot Seat



Show and Tell has been one of my favorites because students get to introduce whatever they like in English, like their favorite comic books, novels and even video games. To do this right, students have to develop a draft for their oral presentation first, so writing skills are also involved. Next, during presentations, they need to pay attention in order to answer my questions about what just has been said. Thus, listening comprehension is incorporated as well. Prior to that, teacher’s demonstration is necessary because students will have a model to follow in terms of eye contact, volume, organization and so on. On top of that, I also showed my students how to use rubrics to examine each other’s performances so that they can do a better job next time.

A Tour to Morrison Academy Taichung


On behalf of the Education Bureau, Principal Syu, Daniel and I went to the Morrison Academy this afternoon to visit Mr. Myburgh, the Elementary/Middle School Principal, and discussed some future cooperation plans between both parties in cultural and English teaching exchange. After briefing him on how the English Advisory Group of Taichung City promotes English teachers’ professional development, he immediately recommended some of the teachers there based on their expertise to do teaching demonstrations, like cooperative learning, flipped classroom and so on, for our visit next time as the first step. Then, Judy kindly gave us a campus tour and introduced some teachers for us as well. As the main event organizer, I especially would like to tap into resources from this school for some potential workshops.

Board Game Workshop at Houli Junior High School


I love board games. I designed some board games which I used in my class, and which my students had fun with. I also played them with other teachers from Houli Junior High School this Tuesday afternoon. I felt happy to be invited and was pleased to share the board game ideas with these friendly, active, kind, and hardworking teachers. I was glad they thought my board games were useful and practical to use in classes. Please click this ppt file link to get some ideas of what I shared that day.

During the one-day visit, the Maoris taught students traditional Maori dance and the students show the Maoris Chinese martial arts. During the activity, students not only had the chance to speak English but learned how to introduce the beauty of Taichung to foreigners.

In this teaching activity, students get a chance to practice using comparative and superlative structures with their classmates by playing an interesting board game. This game helps to improve students’ listening comprehension and to motivate lower level students to speak.

   On April 27th, Chih Shan Junior High invited college students from foreign countries to the school to share their cultures and traveling experiences with the students. Stephanie from Ireland talked about the literature, music, sports, typically Irish things (like Claddagh ring and Celtic Crosses), food, drinks and some festivals (like St. Patrick’s Day) in Ireland. Pureum and Ms. Shin from Korea introduced Korean culture in Mandarin, which impressed students a lot. After the speech, the students hope that one day they have the chance to visit Ireland and Korea in person.

Microteaching with TBL and Cooperative Learning


This is the second time that I got invited and share Cooperative Learning here. Actually, it didn't go very well last time. The participants were comprised of a variety of subject teachers, which made it difficult for most of them to understand what I was talking about because the presentation was made in English. On top of that, I lectured throughout the entire workshop.

全英語教學工作坊



Using English to Teach English
When I have to introduce myself, I would usually say that I’m a crazy English learner. Indeed, I seldom allow my mind to go wander. When doing household chores, running on a treadmill or even taking a dump on the toilet, I must be listening to some English. On top of that, I’ll always have an English magazine with me, picking up useful expressions anytime and anywhere. Getting a lot of input intensively and extensively is how I maintain my level of English proficiency.
