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.

103學年度臺中市國中國際沙龍活動(二)

   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.
