Class management by Self learning

All the students and teachers felt a little tired to the lecture style class teaching way after 2 months work time,I would like to get a new way to make students learning Mandarin by Ipad system-Discovering Chinese Pro.After 2 weeks preparing for equipment setting work,all the students could use their Ipad to finish homework and use DCP app for class test.

For grade 8 students I gave them 10 minutes introduction about core of new knowledge,left 10 minutes for them to learn by Ipad,after that direct individue to practice writing Characters or reading workbook before dictation.Left 5 minutes to play Chinese game or watch a video about Chinese Culture if they could concentrate to finish this class on time.

learning by ipad may a practical  way to spur the students and a nice supplementary too.

133f735f4cca04a715792caf63a35a8e 经过两个月的常规教学之后,师生都有点厌倦了固有的教学模式,经过和校长谈话之后,我学习到Better Chinese 网络教学的使用方法。经过2周的更新程序和检查设备维护,多数学生们能够用自己的平板电脑开始自学、完成家庭作业和测试。

8年级中文课,我尽量 在10分钟内讲清楚语言难点,剩下的时间给学生联系发音、阅读和完成课堂练习。我在根据不同学生进度进行有针对的指导,如果学生完成情况较好,我也会留5分钟给他们做游戏或者看中文视频。

经过1个月的实践和摸索,学生利用网络自学的模式成熟起来,激励学生自学同时,对于传统教学模式也是一种良好的补充。

上周五下午1点10分我们比平时略早结束工作,所有职工和学生都聚集在室内篮球场参加老兵纪念日的活动。首先,主持人宣布开始并简单介绍老兵日的意义,开场白之后学生乐队演奏美国国歌,所有老师都庄重地站直。四个手持长笛的学生演奏英国国歌《上帝保佑女王》,熟悉的旋律把我带回四年前的岁月。音乐让人对这一退役士兵纪念日格外有意义。

大屏幕上出现第二次世界大战的老照片,整人岁月带给年轻人的是一种教育,对老年人来说则是对历史的缅怀。活动最后是学生最喜欢的抽奖环节,许多学生得到礼物,一个具有教育意义的一天就在欢乐的氛围里结束了。

Question Wall!问题墙

After the conference of language department 2 weeks ago, I know I need try to find a new way to attract students attention as well as answering their interesting field in Chinese studying I would like using Question wall in my classroom.The setting a wall behind a basket,students could put their question notes into it afterclass.I will answer their question at next Chinese class.

All the students felt exciting to ask me questions both about myself and China.I picked most representative questions to stick on the wall,so every students could see them once they forget how to pronounce that Hot word in Mandarin,such as “oh,my god”or”Space and Universe”.

Some questions were too private to be shared with all teenagers,I will make a judgement and give them a hazy answer.Anyhow,this is a new beginning for us to become better.

 

两周前的会议,语言组培训关于如何让课堂更有效率的方法时,我选择“问题墙”作为新的交流方式。学生可以利用提问题的方法把问题纸条留给我,我也乐于回答他们关心的与中文课和中国文化有关的问题。具体把一个竹篮放在一面墙下面,学生下课后把问题投入篮子,我第二天给他们解答并选出有代表性的问题贴在墙上,谓之“问题墙”

我把这一个想法告诉他们,所有学生都觉得这是一个很刺激很酷的交流方式,他们可以有机会看见自己提出的问题附带我的回答贴在墙上。当他们忘记而又需要知道怎么用中文发出哪些诸如“奥,我的天”和“宇宙空间”等关心的问题时,只需抬头看看墙就可以了。

有些问题因过于涉及我的个人隐私而不便当着全班回答,我会根据提问涉及隐私程度对提问人作出一定模糊的回答。无论效果如何,我觉得这都是中文课堂有效交流的新的开始。

Halloween Day !万圣节

15C537413C06C8F80A57E773469EC84B.jpg

 

Today is the Halloween day, most students dressed up as a cartoon heros,especially in Main campus.The tertians played game together and did practice as usual did,except they can not help to look at each other’s cloth.I felt funny in this atmosphere.

At lunch time,I rode back to Headwater campus,there is an other picture,not as many as lower school,some students dressed as beautiful as actors in film.The challenge is also coming,it is hard to make them quiet,although I put a Halloween top in Chinese,they can not stop to talking.I made a new game to make them play together,if they could not concentrate their attention to stop as everyone did,they have to answer question in Chinese about Halloween.Generally ,them fellowed class and learned several new Characters.

今天是美国传统的万圣节,多数主校区的学生穿上各式卡通英雄人物形象的服装。三年级学生像平常一样玩游戏、做练习,偶尔也会去注意其他小朋友的衣服。我觉得氛围轻松又有趣。

午餐时间,我骑车回到高水校区,初中部的奇装异服的学生不如主校区多,不过也有很多人把自己打扮成各类电影中的角色,让人眼前一亮。挑战随之出现,很多人难以集中注意力,不断讲话,很难有片刻安静。我准备好的万圣节题材中文课对他们没有丝毫吸引力。我当机立断,通过上节课讲过的:“木头人”游戏,介绍完游戏,学生都希望参加,所以大家都开始听我重复游戏规则,如果没有按时停下来,会回答一个关于万圣节的问题。最终在一节欢乐吵闹的中文课后学生还是记住一些与节日相关的中文词汇。
