2020 Chinaway English Teaching Outline (网课支教大纲)

2020 Chinaway 网课支教大纲

Task Description
Teaching lesson:  "Speaking English is fun" or ”Happy to Speak English”
 
Goal: Have the Chinese children enjoy learning and speaking English.
Students in Sichuan2nd to 6th grade.
Virtual Classrooms: Dujiangyan (都江堰) and Ya'an (雅安) 
What you'll do: Curriculum prep; virtual classroom management; English teaching online attractively and joyfully; Chinese culture learning; and volunteer team collaborating.
Volunteers Hours Logging: https://forms.gle/qED4p8UfepQuTLL1A
Project Notes: Keep tracking the Current Status
 
The class lessons will be held in the Chinese community centers. We hope that the class is fun and kids can enjoy the class. Ultimately, the kids will be able to speak simple English. Since the class is online, we cannot play games physically with the kids. Therefore, the most challenging  part of teaching would be interacting with the kids to learn and to speak English, while including fun-filled activities. 
 
We hope that students can practice listening and speaking English in each class through a game. For example, Hide and Seek, which can teach Chinese children about directions, rooms, and buildings through interaction and connection what kids have learned. 
 
Telling stories (or showing short cartoons/English films) : it helps develop the Chinese children's listening skills and their expressive ability; We also can teach songs (similar to the cup song)/ jingle.
 
We encourage you to write (finding) scripts and teach Chinese children to play roles. For example, writing a shopping scenario,  would help the children to practice asking about prices, saying “I like ...”, in color, size, and all other possible aspects. (stationery, clothes...) Also, you can talk about "going to a restaurant": to practice speaking about different kinds of foods and social etiquette.
 
The links below are the English textbooks of the Chinese schools from grades 3 to 6. Please read through the textbook and become familiar with the contents, to know well what English words and sentences that they have already learned. Let them practice speaking English by the words and sentences. The simple repetition is the key to reinforce them. You can also add more content in terms of simple English sentence structures to teach Chinese kids.
 
In short , you should prepare one or two weeks worth of teaching plans. You can write the teaching plan independently or in groups. After it is finished, we will review all the materials and plans and select the best teaching plan for all to use. Students who create/edit the teaching materials and plans will earn volunteer hours.
 
 

主要课程介绍:教“快乐说英语”课程。
 
原则:在欢乐中让中国孩子开口说英语。学生主要是2年级到6年级。
 
课程都是在中国的社区举行,他们希望课程有趣,孩子愿意听,最终孩子能开口说英语。但因为是网上教学,没法与同学一起玩游戏,如何才能让课堂有趣,这是这个工作的困难部分。
 
所以我们希望:每节课都通过一个游戏练习听说英语,比如:Hide and seek,将中国孩子学到的,方向,房子,建筑等串联起来。
 
讲故事(可以放短的动画片):锻炼中国孩子的听力与表达能力;可以教歌曲,短诗歌,如cup song 那样的可唱可表演。
 
鼓励写短剧本(通过场景剧)让中国孩子表演:比如shopping 让孩子学会如何问价格,喜欢什么,颜色,大小,各种商品名,文具,衣物,等等。比如上餐馆:表演说各种食物,社交礼仪;
 
附件是中国小学的英语教材。熟悉课本的内容,了解他们学过什么单词,什么句子,你们就要反复用这些句子与孩子们对话,同时再增加一些句子结构教他们。
 
总之你们要准备一周或二周的课程,以后就是重复。可以独立写出教案,也可以小组讨论出教材内容,然后开学前我们汇总,选出优秀的教案供大家使用。编辑了教材的同学有义工小时。

2020 Chinaway Volunteer Program

This year our program is full, see you next year!

Chinaway is a summer volunteer program which established on 2008. Due to the current special situation, this year’s Chinaway Volunteer Program will change to online teaching. We welcome students who can comfortably talk/teach in front of the computer/phone/camera to join this teaching project. Students can choose whether to teach independently or team up by group.

The teaching course are mainly English conversation, reading Chinese students’ English textbooks, and simple Chinese/English translation. Participating Chinese students are between 1st and 6th grade. Since no teacher/adults help students during the teaching session, to ensure teaching going smooth, it is mandatory for students to prepare course ahead as required, including control time/ prepare materials to fulfill the whole classtime, to be familiar with the teaching contents, and to have teaching rehearsals.

Student volunteers will earn 3 volunteer hours for 1 hour of online teaching. For students whose hours meet the requirement of the President's Service Reward, we will apply for it and give students the certificate.

因为今年的特殊情况,chinaway 支教活动将由线下换到线上。我们欢迎可以独立面对镜头(网上平台)教英语的同学参加,同学可以自己独立讲课,也可以组成小组参与讲课。

教课内容主要是英语对话,领读中国英语课本,简单中英互译。参与的中国学生主要是1年级到六年的学生。 由于是独自讲解一定时间的课程,教课之前学生必须按要求备课,准备课堂内容,同时课前预讲,保证课堂上不留空挡。

每天的支教活动由每天的线授课离线备课讨论组成。义工小时也合并计算,比如,一小时在线授课和两小时的离线备课, 折合3小时志愿者服务时间。服务时数符合总统服务奖的,我们将为同学申报并发放证书。

Yuxian teaching program

6/7/2020 - 6/20/2020 河北蔚县支教项目

Yuxian County is located in Hebei province and 265 kilometers away from Beijing. Yuxian is an Ancient Town, rich in history and culture but economic underdeveloped. Yuxian county hope their students improve the English and can introduce the culture to Foreign friends. Our volunteer program mainly teaches English inNuanquan Central School. We will teach 5th Grade。

Students of Nuanquan Central School hope that through this cultural exchange between China and the United States, the children can broaden their horizons, increase their interest in English,improve their conversational English, and gain self-confidence. At the same time, the students should be able to express, understand and explain their own culture and the world.

For the American volunteers, objectives include understanding the Chinese cultural symbols of Yuxian County, then teaching it to the students in English. Another objective is working with the school's lesson " Nuanquan, a famous historical and cultural town in China", to assist the Chinese students in completing the Nuanquan Cultural Interpreter Project. The project includes the creation of a presentation in both Chinese and English, and organizing a presentation competition (the Chinese content will be provided by the Chinese side), help in making Chinese and English cultural performances, and develop the students’ ability to host foreign visitors and explain the town’s culture to them in English.

 河北省蔚县距离北京265公里,是中国历史文化名镇,现为国家AAA级旅游景区,但经济不发达。蔚县人们希望他们的孩子能提高英语表达能力,可以给外国朋友介绍他们的文化。我们的义工项目主要到蔚县暖泉镇中心校教授英语,我们教的学生是5年级。   

暖泉中心校学生,希望通过此次中美文化的交流活动,让孩子们开阔眼界,增强对英语的兴趣,加强英语口语能力,对自己文化的了解与讲解能力。了解世界文化语言,增强自我信心。

美国学生志愿者的具体工作:了解蔚县中国文化符号,翻译为西方人可以理解的语言。结合学校的校本课《中国历史文化名镇—暖泉》,协助中国孩子完成暖泉小小文化讲解员项目,包括讲解词的中英文编写,ppt的制作,组织孩子们进行讲解比赛(中文内容中方会提供),协助创作中英文文化表演,提高中国孩子的表达能力,接待外国人的能力。

Chinaway Program Multidimensional Think

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。
