同学的反馈与总结

 

Day 1 : Teaching was actually a new experience for me, and the first day was actually not that bad. But the second half was very bad. After lunch at the middle, I went to the other school to teach. What I didn’t know was that I had to teach solo. I wasn’t prepared so I embarrassed myself greatly.

Day 2 : Prepared and Confident, I now headed to the same high school to teach. I was still nervous, but I did a far better job than before. I went to classes, taught vocabulary, and played games with them.    -- Jason Huang

I really liked debate activities because it provided many opportunities for us to communicate in small groups, and to teach them and discuss things about the debate. Also, listening to the debates were very interesting. Something I didn’t like about was the lack of variety. If different topics were provided, I think the students would have more opportunities to think of ideas and evidence. Also, we would be able to help them think of other things, not just Girl vs. Boy, which is very vague. 

Today was a very good teaching experience, because I got the chance to work with a small group of 4 students to help them understand a single English work. It was successful because they could easily translate the book after the lesson, and we also had fun afterwards when we played some games. The performances today were also interesting. I saw that students in China are extremely talented. The only complaint I have about today is that the internet only worked for 10 minutes, and the power shut down in half of the outlets.   --  Julia Hu

Monday: Arrived at every stop at around the exact time planned,Although the long bus ride was not mentioned(but it was okay). The overall feel of the dorms were pretty decent and the assigning of partners were suited for everyone.

Tuesday: First day of teaching was pretty stressed and never-racking due to the fact that we did now know how well they were developed with English. After group 1 and group 2 combined, there was more excitement for both the teachers and the students. We taught a lot about basic English grammar and numerous amounts of game. The students gave out a more positive feedback through their facial expressions and participation rate

 Thursday: The preparation Debate seminar was an absolute success. I felt as though the students were a lot more involved and eager to learn about the different strategies. During the debate, many of the Dujiangyan students were actually extremely well prepared for the topic and they all had really good ideas and arguments. I had an extremely good time listening to the debate.

 Today was our last day teaching these students and I have enjoyed every single minute we had with them. Even though there was some difficulty with the understanding of some concepts, we were still able to work together and solve every bit of difficulty the students had both in groups and as individuals. The semi-rally that was held  today was absolutely astonishing.  All of the performances were just all extremely well orientated and prepared.      I have enjoyed every second of their performances and farewell proposes.   -          They will be missed by all!   -- Charles Wei

Our first evening and night here were good. Personally, I liked that we did not do introductions and icebreakers because it gave us the chance to naturally get to know each other.

The vocational school was amazing. It ranks among the best experience of my life. Even though I was in a classroom by myself, the students were the most welcoming, warm, and respectful people ever. I felt like I truly taught them about America culture. 

It was a great idea to teach in pairs, because if I couldn’t explain something, my partner Jason could try explaining it. Te vocational students emailed me that night, thanking me and wishing that we could become good friends. I know that in some ways they let me change a part of their lives. I will keep them in my hearts forever. Personally, I liked the vocational school so much better than Dujiangyan Senior School.   --- Jessica Gao

做义工越多越好吗?

随着美国名校在录取学生时对学生关爱社会或社区服务元素的强调,华人孩子做义工的趋势持续高涨,有些孩子甚至每年做义工达400~500小时。但这有助于名校录取吗?

社区服务即义工的定义是干对他人有益的事而不要求报酬;做对社区有益的事,没有报酬,而且必须是非盈利的领域。
