    The Power to Visualize,让阅读更生动

    On the afternoon of March 6, GEP staff had the fifth workshop on Reading Power ------ The Power to Visualize.

    36日下午,大英语中心全体老师进行了第五场关于“阅读力”的集体教研。本次教研探讨和交流的是“阅读力”之“形象化”能力。

    ESL coordinator Maria designed a booklet of “Maple Leaf ESL Support for Teaching Reading Comprehension Strategies” for all teachers to review the Powers we have talked about through singing. The talented ladies composed melodies for Connecting, Questioning and Inferring. We had so much fun singing the songs together!

    为了让老师们对阅读力有一个更结构性的认识,ESL外教协调人Maria老师特别制作了《阅读策略指导手册》,和大家温故了阅读力的相关知识,并通过三首老师们自弹自唱改编的歌曲,带大家回顾了之前学习的三种能力——联想力、提问力和推测力。

    As the leader of Reader Rafting Program, Maria recommended several good books for teachers to teach reading power. What’s more, she prepared a mini exhibition to show students’ reading posters, reading journals, reading logs and other achievements of teachers’ reading classes from last semester.

    作为Reader Rafting阅读项目负责人,Maria不仅推荐了一些帮助老师们更好地教授阅读力的英文读物,还设计了一个小型成果展,展示了上学期Reader Rafting阅读项目的学生海报、阅读日志以及老师们在阅读课上的其他成果。

    The Reading Power strategies are important not only in English reading but also in the general sense of reading. Where visualizing fits into CS, the concept of visualizing, and the 6-step method to teach Reading Power lesson etc. were well illustrated in GEP Director Vicki’s presentation. Teachers also realized that the proper content is important to teach students how to visualize. In addition to picture words, sensory words are good choices to help students visualize when they are reading.

    随后,大英语中心Vicki主任以“形象化”能力在《枫叶ESL分级课程表中》中的体现、“形象化”能力的概念及六步教学法等方面向大家进行了详细的讲解和演示。在讲解中穿插的几个阅读活动,让老师们意识到内容的选择对教授学生“形象化”能力尤为重要。在阅读时,学生们除了要重点关注那些能够“形象化”的图片词语,还可以借助感官词语来锻炼形象化能力。

    Combining the power to connect and question, we had a reading activity of visualizing. Listening to a story without images, everyone drew and exchanged their own pictures about the same story. Vicki emphasized that teachers can do a lot of things with even one book, not limited to one competence.

    结合“联想力”和“提问力”,老师们也进行了一次“形象化力”的演练。通过听故事,大家画出脑海里的故事画面,并进行交流。Vicki强调在教授阅读时,老师们可不局限于一种能力的培养,而应根据阅读材料和学生能力进行适当的延展。

    Afterwards, Elementary School ESL Director Amy organized a writing activity with teachers based on visualizing. With the topic of writing a color poem, she explained how to make use of imagination and other senses to visualize. Additionally, a variety of resources and graphic organizers were shared to help students visualize.

    最后Amy主任围绕如何在写作时运用“形象化”能力和老师们进行了互动。以颜色诗歌为例,Amy补充说明了如何指导学生借助想象力和其他感官进行形象化写作,并和大家分享了教材中几篇适合练习形象化写作以及一些有用的图像式组织图引导学生发散思维,开展形象化写作。

    “Books are much more than a bunch of words. They are keys that unlock the imagination.” The Power to Visualize makes reading more vivid.

    “书籍不仅仅是一堆文字。它们更是开启想象的钥匙。”学会“形象化”能力,让阅读更生动!
