  7. Goals For the Semester教學目標 • Be able to communicate in a fluent manner. 能以英語流利溝通 • Be able to read and write and edit their own work.能閱讀、寫作並修正自己的文章 • As an English teacher writing skills are extremely important to me, writing exercises will be done as much as possible. 寫作技巧極其重要,因此會增加孩子的寫作機會。

  8. Journal小日誌 • Every day they are assigned a journal entry. They are given time at the beginning of the day, if they do not finish it is homework.每天都需寫小日誌。晨光時間發下後即可開始寫,若未能在校完成,再帶回家寫。 • This is NOT graded. We just want to get the students writing. They need to write at least five sentences. They can write more than that if they wish to do so. 此項作業不評分,目的是讓孩子養成寫作的習慣。 每篇至少要寫5句,也可寫超過5句。

  9. Journal 小日誌 • We will check to be sure they are doing the journal, but we will not read them. 老師不會詳讀日誌內容,但會不定期檢查孩子是 否有按時完成此項作業。

  10. Writing Assignments寫作作業 • Each week they will be assigned a writing assignment. This is usually assigned on Tuesdays and due either Friday or Monday, depending on assignment.每週都會有寫作功課,通常週二發下,週五或隔週一完成並繳交。 • Please ask to look over these writing assignments and have them read them to you, as this will help their verbal skills and maybe catch any mistakes they might have. 當孩子完成寫作後,請他們先自行檢查內容,並讀出給家長聽,如此可提升口說能力,也許亦可發現自己錯誤之處。

  11. Tests and Quizzes定期評量與小考 • We will still be giving the weekly assessments (for every theme) on Fridays. 每週五配合單元教學,舉行週考。 • We will also be giving the weekly spelling test on Fridays.

  12. Tests and Quizzes定期評量與小考 • Please remember that the purpose of these tests and quizzes is NOTfor scores. 評量與小考的目的,並非為了分數。 • These are all tools to allow us to assess our students’ progress and help them succeed! 目的在了解學生是否已經學會、學習困難在何處。 • And a score of 80% or higher is a good score! 80分或80分以上,都算是很好的成績。

  14. Grading評分方式 • Here is a breakdown of what will be graded and how it will be used to determine a student’s final score: 各項所佔總成績比率: • Quizzes (weekly theme & spelling) 小考(每週單元考試及拼字小考)– 20% • Projects (Weekly Writing) 每週寫作– 10% • Homework & Assignments回家功課及作業– 15% • Participation上課參與– 15% • Tests定期評量– 40%

  15. Math Class數學課 • The English Math curriculum will be based on the Chinese Math curriculum.課程以中文的數學課本為主。 • We are doing this, so that students can learn the vocabulary in English and Chinese but still learn the Chinese method of working problems out. 以雙語學習課程,但仍以中式方法解決問題。
