Seminar on Content Language Integrated Learning (CLIL)

 


About the Instructor

1. Bachelor in Chemistry, University of Manchester

2. In-service International Teacher at Donshang Senior High school



 

It is our pleasure to invite Ian Garner, the head coordinator of Taichung FET program, talking about CLIL curriculum design today. His presentation is informative and vivid, which is so useful for TESOL practitioners who want to create their own CLIL curriculum. I would like to summarize a few key points in the following section.


First of all, we English teachers should not be confined by textbooks since they are not authentic at all. Try to implement something authentic in the alternative curriculum (彈性課程). In Taiwan, we are so used to teaching the materials in the textbooks, which is easy and time-saving. However, we fail to recognize that English is taken for communication instead of language tests. 


Second of all, try to be good friends with the General Guidelines provided by MOE in order to get to know more about the beliefs and goals of it. General Guidelines are so important when we want to make the lesson plans because they could help us pinpoint what to teach (from the perspective of teachers) and what to learn (from the perspective of students).


Last of all, work with your colleagues to design CLIL curriculum. Also, when encountering some difficulties, refer to the guidelines in inner circle of English would help.


It takes a lot of time to create CLIL curriculum. But if you finish one, you will feel that you become a super teacher in the field of English teaching because you teach not only English but also other subjects.

A Seminar on Incorporating Picture Books into TESOL

 


About the Instructor:

1. Master of Foreign Languages and Literature, National Taiwan University

2. In-service English teacher at Kaohsiung Municipal Houjing Junior High School


















It is our honor to invite Kitty Lee, an expert on English picture book-assisted language teaching, sharing her ideas on how to incorporate into English classroom. 


At the beginning of the the seminar, Kitty read the picture book entitled The Wonder Walkers for us participants. Personally speaking, picture books have the following benefits. Firstly, compared to English novels, the vocabulary and sentence patterns in picture books are relatively fixed. Secondly, picture books help boost social-emotional learning. Also, we TESOL practitioners can integrate social issues into English teaching. Lastly, we English teachers can develop CLIL curriculum with art teachers since the illustrations in picture books are so delicate and beautiful. 


Besides, Kitty mentions the reason for her to promote English picture books is that they help guard  the authenticity of the language. We readers can get to know more about the importance of language use (Pragmatics) in different contexts.


In the process of attending the seminar, I could understand how enthusiastic Kitty feels for picture books. She has read thousands of picture books and has classified these books into different themes. Therefore, we English teachers can save a lot of time scavenging suitable picture books.

Workshop on Digital Technology in Language Teaching

 


 







About the instructor:

1. Researcher at English Center located in New Taipei City

2. Bachelor degree in literature at National Chung Hsing University


Research Interest:
1. Storybooks in the classroom
2. Computer-Assisted Language Teaching, CALL
3.English Writing
4. Board Game Designing


It's our honor to invite Bunny Hsieh, researcher at English Center in  New Taipei City, talking about digital technology in language classroom today. The term digital technology refers to technology relying on computer chips--to distinguish it from more standard forms of educational technology, such as overhead projectors or even chalkboards. It is critical to recognize that, when we talk about classroom technology, we are no longer limited to thinking only about computers but an assortment of devices ranging from the smallest programmable smartpen to the desktop tower computer.

Take ClassDojo, a beautiful, safe, simple communication app for teachers, parents, and students, for example, she states that it is so useful for English teachers for improving behaviors, sharing data, and saving time.










Also, interactive storybooks help to boost students' reading comprehension on the story line. Storybooks are usually written in rhyme and rhythm. They help students develop auditory discrimination, listening skills, and phonemic awareness.


At last, Bunny mentioned that Padlet is a powerful tool for us English teachers to use. Padlet is a great tool for tracking class updates. By using it in the classroom, we can track current and upcoming class assignment's topics and their due dates. In addition, we can design and place greeting cards with personal messages.

We are all TESOL practitioners. By applying digital technology in our language classes, we could make our English classes much more interesting and vivid. Let's give it a try!

2022.03.22 素養導向命題與實作回流共備工作坊

 


林淑媛老師

講師簡介

臺北市興雅國中教師

師大資訊教育研究所博士候選人

全國中小學教師研習資深講師

林淑媛老師的網站https://cherelin.cc/

今天非常高興中英團再次邀請到教學經驗相當豐富的林淑媛老師利用線上研習的方式,讓更多英語教師能參與這場研習。

在去年的研習之後,今天主要是讓老師能透過實際命題與實作,提升老師的命題能力。講師分享在出題的過程中,是需要校內的英語老師有共識,寧可在正式考試之前,透過不斷對話與溝通,確保試題的品質,測出學生真實學習到的能力。

 

講師提到現在老師命題可以不用孤軍奮戰,而是透過校內英語領域教師或是跨校、甚至跨縣市的共備社群,有一群人可議互相分享試題,共備、共修試題,可以達到事半功倍的效果。

 

過程中也介紹許多實用的工具讓老師在命題時,能有更多的素材可以參考。包括可讀性統計,了解文章的可讀性,可以讓老師針對試題的難易度更容易掌握,避免文章生字過多、造成學生閱讀困難,而無法測出命題老師的想測出的能力。
  
    
今天透過實作的練習,讓我們學到如何在線上共同編修試題,不會因時間、地點的限制,講師也提到一份優良的試題是需要不斷的檢視、修正,才有可能產出,透過領域教師集思廣益、通力合作,透過不斷修正、調整,教師的命題能力會更加提升。

講師簡報:議題關注E起來




我們為什麼需要議題教育,因為許多知識和素養都是跨領域的,學生必須透過這些學習才能因應未來的變遷及挑戰。



講師介紹幾種議題融入教學的事例:分別是海洋、環境、人權與性別平等議題。


我們應該如何將議題融入教學,有以下幾種方式:領綱融入、教科書融入、校定課程融入與教學議題融入。



講師分享許多與議題相關且相當實用的網站給大家:

THE WORLD’S LARGEST LESSON

wordwall



目前各家書商教科書都有依據領綱編寫,也融入許多相關議題。




透過議題融入說明手冊可以更明確了解各議題的學習目標、學習主題老師在教學上也更容易上手。




希望透過這次的議題探究共備工作坊,讓英語教師對於如何將議題融入教學有更深的了解,也希望老師能善用今天所學到的網站及教學工具,實際應用於教學現場,相信我們的學生必定會學到更多的內容。
