    The Power of Inferring,让学生“慧读”英语

    The Reader Rafting reading program is in full swing. While students are reading enjoyably, teachers are working hard as well on the reading strategies. In our December workshop, all GEP staff got to discuss “The Power to Infer” of “Reading Power”.

    Reader Rafting阅读项目正在我校如火如荼地进行着,学生们认真阅读的同时,老师们自然也不能落后。为了更好地教授学生阅读技巧,在大英语中心12月的集体教研中,全体英语老师以“阅读力”之“推测力”为主题进行了学习和交流。

    Inferring is an important competence and strategy not only required by Maple Leaf ESL Curriculum Standard but also in daily life and reading activities. Where inferring fits into CS, how to introduce the concept to students, some graphic organizers, and the 6-step method to teach Reading Power lesson etc. were included in GEP Director Vicki’s presentation. Teachers realized that our positive and proper guidance is essential to teach students how to infer. Additionally, a variety of visual graphic organizers were shared with teachers when talking about inferring from very little text, clues and illustrations, enabling students to infer more thoroughly and logically.

    “推测力”不仅是《枫叶ESL分级课程标准》对学生语言能力和学习策略的要求,更是一个广泛应用于学生阅读活动、日常学习中的重要能力。首先,大英语中心Vicki主任以“推测力”在《枫叶ESL分级课程标准》中的体现、针对不同级别学生教授“推测力”的方法及阅读力六步教学法等方面向大家进行了讲解和演示。结合推测力相关的单词和句型,通过一个游戏老师们意识到,推测力的学习离不开老师积极、适当的引导。在演示如何从绘本、线索、插图三个方面进行推测时,Vicki和大家分享了许多有用的图像式组织图,从而让学生们在推测时思维更可视化、更严谨、更有逻辑性。

    Afterwards, Elementary School ESL Director Amy organized a writing activity with teachers based on inferring with the topic of “emotions” which made teachers understand that “less inking means more thinking” in a practical way.

    随后,Amy主任围绕如何在写作时运用推测力和老师们进行了探讨。以“情绪”为题,老师们做了一个写作练习,体验如何用更少的笔墨传达思想,达到读者通过线索进行推测的目的。

    At last, ESL teacher Kevin showed us the application of inferring strategies with methods such as using pictures, comics, riddles, questioning, and graphic organizers, etc. Therewith, leveled teaching groups brainstormed and presented their plans in incorporating inference to Maple Leaf textbooks.

    最后,外教Kevin老师和大家分享了如何在阅读时运用图片、漫画、谜语、提问力、图像式组织图等指导学生进行推测。之后,老师们结合本次教研的内容,分组讨论并展示如何有效地将“推测力”融入到枫叶教材中,帮助学生掌握“推测力”。

    Besides, we also watched a video demo class on inferring so as to have a visual and precise concept of how to involve it to reading class.

    此外,为了对“推测力”的学习有一个更直观的认识,全体老师还观摩了一节展示课,从教学实践中学习如何落实“推测力”。

    Mark Twain once said, “A successful book is not made of what is in it, but of what is left out of it.” When students are studying the Power to Infer of Reading Power, what they are going to master is not just a significant reading skill, more importantly, the logical thinking and analytical abilities.

    马克·吐温说过,“一本好书不是由它写了什么而决定,而是由它为读者留下了什么而决定。”学生们学习“阅读力”之“推测力”,掌握不仅仅是一项阅读技能,更是逻辑思维和分析的能力。
