Recently, the G6 students just finished a unit of English study. Today we invited their English teacher Catherine Chen to review the wonderful moments in the learning process. Let's take a look at the children's classroom performance!
In order to cultivate students' language receptive ability and output ability, we also studied Coraline, a fantasy novel by British author Neil Gaiman. In the process of analyzing the storyline of the novel, the students improved the English listening, speaking, reading and writing skills.
In the process of reading Coraline, I arranged three tasks for students:
1) Draw the cover of the novel;
2) List the rhetorical language used in the novel and apply what they have learned;
3) Give examples, demonstrations and analysis of a certain plot of the novel, and mark them with silver pens of different colors: point, evidence, and explanation.
The process of creating a new play is also a process for students to exercise their English listening, speaking, reading and writing abilities: if you want to create a new story based on a novel, you must first study and understand the original novel carefully; the creation process During the course, brainstorming and communicating with each other are indispensable. Students must not only understand the opinions of their peers, but also express their ideas clearly. Finally, they must complete the writing of the script with fluent writing, which improves their English level subtly.
In teamwork, they can perform their own duties and learn to cooperate with each other, At the same time, their communication and organization skills have also been exercised.
This is not only the result of this unit study. In the teaching process of each new unit, we will try our best to provide a platform for the students, so that they can get exercise in different aspects while giving full play to their talents and talents.
At Dehong, our teachers will encourage students to discover problems, ask questions, and share their opinions. Through inquiry-based learning, students will be more active and effective in their learning process, so as to become lifelong learners and have the ability to develop continuously.
At the secondary level, our curriculum will focus more on improving students' academic English and inquiry-based learning abilities, laying a solid foundation for English learning in higher grades.
