学生的万圣节作业 The homework about Halloween

Apollo High School的沉浸式课堂共有8名学生,他们都是从幼儿园开始进入中文沉浸式学习项目的。从教他们一段时间后,我了解到他们的特点是听力、口语较好,阅读与书写能力稍弱。想要提高他们汉语学习的兴趣,常常需要老师另辟蹊径。

时近美国万圣节,于是我给了他们一个特别的家庭作业。介绍美国万圣节。我把学生们分成两组,一组准备美国感恩节由来、特色、习俗,另一组准备介绍万圣节的音乐、服装等等。我给他们的准备时间是两周。

两周之后,他们按时上交了万圣节作业。托马斯同学主讲,阿塞亚配合。他们查资料、做ppt,准备了内容丰富的讲解。不仅完成了我给的任务。还准备了万圣节音乐《thriller》。在课堂上,大家用介绍万圣节的方式使用中文,课堂气氛十分活跃。

相较于单纯的写作文,这样的作业形式对他们更有吸引力。

There are 8 students in the Language Art class of Apollo High School . They joined the Chinese Immersion program from the kindergarten age, they have learnt Chinese for about 10 years.  So they are all good at listening and speaking . But all of them don’t like the writing and reading . As a teacher , I prepared many kind of method to motivate them.

The Halloween is coming now , so I gave them a special homework to introduce the Halloween . I divided them into two groups , one prepare ,the story and the custom , the other group prepare the music and the special cloths of Halloween. I gave them 2 weeks to prepare.

Two weeks later , they gave their homework . To my  astonish , they did well . they check from books and the web , they used the powerpoint to show me their homework .  Tomas was the speaker and Isaiah coordinate with him .

It’s a successful homework , and I should say “good job”.
