亲爱的讯得达家人们,


在与大家分享上周校园新鲜事前,就新调整的几点重要事项在此作以说明。


首先,经过与全体老师探讨商定,学术部决定原定9月10日发给家长的“学术预警信”将推迟发出。因为目前学生成绩单中只有个别测试分数,老师们认为这还不足以说明学生整体学习的好坏,仅以当前成绩作为判断依据对他们来说是不公平的。因此,如果家长登录 PowerSchool 看到一到两个低分,也不用过于紧张。对于我们的很多新生来说,美式教育是一个全新的世界,他们可能还处于适应期,日后会逐步提高,所以“学术预警信”将会在国庆节后10月10日发出。


其次,为促进学生学习,上周起教学部开始加强自习监管力度。白天没有排课的时间段,所有学生必须在指定区域由老师监管集中上自习。学校鼓励学生多阅读,因而自习期间除了做作业、阅读或准备考试,他们也可以去图书馆阅读书籍。


上周分享主要分享了老师多样的课堂活动。课堂活动多样性的目的是加强以学生为中心的学习氛围,提升学生的课堂参与度,课后能牢记课堂知识。而实现这一教学目标不会仅通过单一模式,下面我将与大家分享三个不同的课堂活动案例。

代数 II 的课堂上,任老师通过高科技手段帮助学生们更好地展示他们所学到的内容。

在同学们的热烈的掌声中,上台的学生由老师指导,在白板上写出问题的答案。这种方式非常有趣地扭转了传统数学课堂老师全程在白板前教学的模式,同时也有效地验证了学生是否真正理解课堂的重点内容。



体育课


体育课上,老师充分利用校园的运动器材。外教 Yurii 老师带领学生在篮球场绕着栏杆运球;在健身房进行有氧运动。他希望通过丰富的训练方式提升学生的健身兴趣,让他们加强锻炼、保持身体健康。



在上周的商务基础课上,学生们和夏老师“角色互换”,分成不同的小组轮流组织上课。他们正在学的章节--企业家,每一组分派不同任务,分别向大家说明本组要介绍的知名企业家的个人背景及成功之路,其他学生则要发现成功企业家需要具备的性格特点。


以上为上周全部分享内容。

Dear Sendelta Community,


Before I begin sharing some insights into what's been happening around campus this past week, I'd like to issue a few important updates.


First, after consulting with our faculty, the Academic Department determined that September 10th was too early to begin issuing the promised monthly Early Warning letters to parents. With only a few data points now entered into their grade books, our teachers believe it would be unfair at this point to judge a student as generally performing well or poorly. Parents that have logged into PowerSchool and seen one or two low marks should therefore not be too concerned at this point. Many of our new students, completely new to the world of American-styled education, might still be in an adjustment period and their performance will improve with time. Our first scheduled Early Warning letters will therefore be released following the National Day holiday on October 10th. 


Second, as part of the school's efforts to boost student academic performance, last week the Academic Department began enforcement of supervised self study. All students with scheduled free time during the day will now be monitored in assigned areas by members of our staff. Self study will be time dedicated exclusively to academic work under study conditions which includes quiet rooms, strict control of technology (no games), and a focus on completing homework, reading, or preparing for exams. Students will have access to the school library during these times and are encouraged to continue checking out as many books as they like.


The focus of my sharing last week will be on our teachers' efforts to integrate a variety of activities into their lessons. The goals of these methods are to foster a student-centered learning environment in order to keep students engaged and help them retain knowledge long after they leave the classroom. There is no uniform way to accomplish these goals so I'll share examples from three very different courses.


In Algebra II, Ms. Ren used technology to help encourage her students to demonstrate their mastery of course content. Volunteers went to the white board and solved problems with the cheerful support of their classmates and the guidance of Ms. Ren. This was a fun twist to the traditional learning model of math teachers doing all of the board work for students and a great way to verify whether students were actually understanding the key points or not.

 

In PE, our teachers are making full use of all the athletic facilities on campus. In Mr. Yurii's class, students were rotated between drills on the basketball court for how to dribble and cardio workouts in the fitness center. His hope is to foster an appreciation for physical fitness in his students by showing them a variety of methods to get exercise and stay healthy. 


Students in our Business Foundations course switched roles with Mr. Xia last week, with different groups taking turns leading the class. For their current chapter on entrepreneurship, each group was tasked with making a presentation explaining the personal background and business history of a well-known entrepreneur. Students identified the personal characteristics they believed helped that entrepreneur to succeed.


That's all for last week.
