International Education at Kuang Ming




I have been doing lots of sharing at workshops and teaching demonstrations at different schools. However, today it was the first time that I shared and displayed some achievements in front of all the ninth graders in the very auditorium of my own school. Based on my perspective of how they responded, I think I did a good job today.

Fun with English: Self-introduction and A Little Happiness


This tenth teaching demonstration of mine was performed at Mingjian Junior High School on May 21. By the request of the event planner, the main idea was to create opportunities for students to USE English and to showcase how activities can be set up also using the language as well. In other words, it was more like an English camp, which I was given total freedom to decide on what to teach and enjoyed watching students busy applying what they've learned from textbooks. Teaching procedures are stated as bold and highlighted:

Cultural Exchange: Malaysian food, tourist spots and costumes

Self-introduction

The goal of this class is very simple: to have the students use the language and get to know more about other cultures. Thanks to Professor Meei-ling Liaw and her assistant, Jessica, I got to invite three international students of  NTCU, Jacklyn, Joyce, and Rachel,  to come to my class and do cultural exchange about Malaysian food, tourist attractions, and traditional costumes. The agenda is stated as follows:

受彰化縣輔導團邀請,就評量標準的發展、精神及實施的必要性做了一點分享,以期改變現職教師對評量有不一樣的看法。

國中英語補救教學示例教案_大道國中曾靜榕


"由補救教學的「基本學習內容」可知, 補救教學並不是重複普通班上課的內容,再教他們一次, 因為對於這些學習有困難的孩子,事實就是上完四節課都無法學好的,怎麼有可能藉由短短的一兩節課祛除他們學習上的障礙,而達到學習目標? 因此在課程設計時「鎖定目標、減量、淺化」是很重要的原則, 否則不但對學生的能力提升有限,更可能造成另一重傷害。

語言的學習必須建立在大量的練習, 對補救教學的學生而言更是如此, 從個人以往的教學經驗中深深體會教學應聚焦在學習者身上,盡量「少解說、多練習」,藉由漸進反覆的練習而培養語感,尤其是適時提供學習鷹架而增加學習者成功的學習機會,逐步完成「基本學習內容」的學習。"
