教学 Teaching and Learning
校方全面推动的 “我爱阅读” 是要提高学生的阅读风气。从2018年开始推出的主题书展，旨在通过展出的书籍、物品等让学生对所设定的主题有进一步的了解及体验，从而鼓励学生多阅读。每个星期有三天的早课，通过生动有趣的教学内容来提高学生对学习华文的兴趣，同时也通过此平台灌输正确的传统价值观。除了重视素养的培训，我校也按照学生的学习特性，设计了口试、阅读、历史课等校本课程。”华语怎么说” 课程也为学生提供了认识不同区域的语言使用习惯的机会。
To develop general competencies (cognitive, self-directedness in learning, socio-emotional learning, media technological literacy and cross-cultural communication), the Chinese Department adopts “flip” teaching as the main pedagogical approach, with the aim to develop the students to learn independently, think and express themselves clearly and fluently.
iRead Programme is introduced as a school-wide programme to cultivate students’ reading habits. To further encourage students to read, a thematic book fair has been annually organised since 2018 to facilitate students’ understanding and experience of the various educational themes through the books and articles on display. Thrice a week, the pre-assembly programmes are conducted to facilitate the learning of the Chinese Language and culture in engaging ways as well as to instil traditional values. School-based Learning Packages (e.g. Oral Skills, Reading skills and History lessons) are developed based on the learning needs of the students. “Speaking in Mandarin” programme provides the students with the opportunity to appreciate the language usage in different regions.
Students are assessed holistically through the formative and summative assessments. The latter is the continual or semestral examinations that the students go through on a termly basis. Formative Assessments are implemented in the different levels to assess students’ language skills over a period of time under the teachers’ guidance. The types of Formative Assessment could be in the form of task-based assignments or the assessment of language components (oral, listening, reading and writing skills).
