Topic: How does Ms. Tseng (曾靜榕老師) try to help her students to move on in class?
Ms. Tseng (曾靜榕老師) has been teaching for thirty-five years. Today, she shared with English teachers in Chung Ping Junior High School(中平國中) about how she has been trying to help her students to move on in class.
First, as for teaching vocabulary, phonics rules are introduced in her class to help students pronounce words. With some interesting activities such as spelling games, word puzzles, or board games, students can stay wild awake in class. Second, collaborative learning brings students working in groups, feeling safe and learning together.
Third, focusing on one concept at a time because is helpful for students to create successful learning experiences. Besides, a stage for students to express themselves is significant. When students have to stand in front of others and speak English, even though just to read a short dialogue, they will practice all day long in order to get well-prepared. Additionally, having students play English board games in class not only maintains students’ learning interests but makes them practice what they have learned in different ways.
