解读ESL教材,强化英语读写技能

In order to enhance students’ reading and writing skills, touring training and workshops have been arranged recently to help teachers fully understand and utilize the new textbooks. The lecturers, Mr. Nicolas Mayfield from Cambridge University Press and Ms. Lynn Mallory from Oxford University Press, came to Wuhan Maple Leaf respectively on 16th and 17th of October.

为了强化学生英语阅读和写作技能,提高英语课堂效率和教学质量,枫叶集团特邀请了剑桥大学出版社高级培训师Mr. Nicolas Mayfield和牛津大学出版社职业发展经理Ms. Lynn Mallory在枫叶各校区进行巡回培训。两位培训师分别于1016日和17日来到武汉校区,围绕批判性思维及如何教授跨学科英文阅读和写作,与武汉、荆州大英语中心的老师们进行了探讨。

“Critical thinking” is one of the learning goals for Academic Competence of Maple Leaf ESL Curriculum Standard. Prism takes a fresh approach to English for Academic Purpose (EAP), by focusing strongly on critical thinking, Bloom’s taxonomy, skills for on-campus academic life, and research. Mr. Mayfield illuminated how to provoke students’ innovative and critical thinking by synthesizing video clips, dictation and scaffolding approaches.

Mr. Mayfield通过解析教材中批判性思维、布鲁姆分类法、大学学术技能与研究性教学四大特色,运用视频、听写、脚手架等方法,将学术英语课程(EAP)教学方法、批判性思维训练和听说读写技能提升相结合,向老师们展示了如何在英语课堂中引发学生批判性、创新性地思考,帮助学生发展高阶思维技能。头脑风暴和小组讨论贯穿整场培训,特别是以“再生能源”为例的发散性思考和世界语新闻的听写,为老师们训练学生批判性思维注入了新鲜见解。

In the reading session of OD workshop, Ms. Mallory led in the shallow end and deep end learning, and drew forth the journey reading after pre-teach the weather and landform vocabulary. Teachers benefited a lot from her dissection in structuring a reading lesson and vocabulary worksheets. In the writing session, motivating students to write, using effective scaffolding in writing, and writing activities were the major subjects. Ms. Mallory expounded the product and process approaches, and shared some fun writing practice tasks with us.

在阅读培训中,Ms. Mallory由泳池深水区和浅水区导入深度学习和浅层学习的方法,利用天气和地貌词汇的练习引出教学内容,剖析阅读课程安排,并设计了“家庭词汇”活动,指导老师们有效地开展跨学科的阅读课。在写作培训中,Ms. Mallory将重点放在了写作兴趣、写作框架和写作活动三个方面,比较结果教学法和过程教学法在写作教学中的应用,并分享了一些有趣的写作练习,为老师们的写作教学提供了丰富的素材。

Teachers’ cross-curriculum knowledge and research ability are of equal importance for guiding students to learn actively and efficiently. What’s more, teachers’ teaching concepts and methods should keep pace with the times. Maple Leaf emphasizes teachers’ professional development and lifelong learning. Let’s take advantage of every chance to improve ourselves and serve as an impetus for students to be international elites.

学生的学习积极性和有效性离不开老师自身精湛的英语专业技能,更需要老师跨学科方面的知识和教学行为研究的能力。不仅如此,老师的教学观念和教学水平也必须与时俱进。枫叶注重教师的职业发展和终身学习,希望老师们能通过每次教研和培训,不断创新、改进和提升,携手助力枫叶学子成为国际化精英人才。
