发布时间:2019-09-10 09:55:10 点击:194

提到教师,我们脑海中常常浮现中教的身影。而作为一所拥有26年IB教学经验的国际学校,外教同样是汇佳一道亮丽的风景线。





据数据统计,外教在汇佳的占比为24.1%,来自全球20多个国家。他们的存在,不仅为学生创造了纯正的英语交流环境,更将独具特色的文化背景和教育教学方法融入于课堂中,为培养具有探究能力和国际情怀的学生打下基础。










值此教师节之际,我们走访了一些外教,希望与大家分享他们对于汇佳、对于学生、对于IB教学等方面一些独特的看法和见解,也借此机会让大家对这个群体有更为多元和丰富的认知。




问题1 对汇佳学生有怎样的期待?

What is your expectation for Huijia students?

4a116147f6659f9c0b5b61b7c643eb5c.png

I see Huijia as a school with tons of opportunities. In Huijia, students have infinite choices to define themselves and their education. Everything from an IB curriculum, multiple languages, mathematics, science, history, arts, music, and nearly every sport, Huijia gives the opportunity for students to find their true talents. Their true love. I have extremely high expectations for Huijia students. I believe they have the chance to achieve any goal they set for themselves. A flight to the stratosphere is right around the corner for students in Huijia. 


我认为汇佳是一所提供非常多机会的学校。在汇佳,学生可以有无限的选择来定义自己、定义教育。无论是IB课程、双语教学、数学、科学、历史、艺术、音乐,还是多个运动项目,汇佳都为学生提供了发现真正才能、真正爱好的机会。我对汇佳的学生们期望非常高。我相信他们有机会实现他们为自己设定的任何目标。对于汇佳的学生来说,飞往平流层的航班就在身边。





问题2 在小学阶段,最注重培养学生的何种素质?

In the primary school stage, what qualities do you focus on in developing students?

It is important to help them develop into further caring students, willing to work together with others, while showing care for classmates, teachers, and the Huijia community at large. I believe that in helping them to develop strong communication skills, it will help them be better inquirers, thinkers, and more knowledgeable individuals. Being strong communicators will allow them to develop the confidence necessary for them to one day take the next step in becoming open minded and independent risk takers. Confidence allows them to build on their intellect, while they reflect on the world around them.


我最注重的是,帮助他们发展成为更有爱心的学生,愿意与他人一起协作,同时关怀同学、老师和整个汇佳大家庭。我相信,帮助他们培养起良好的沟通技巧,将有助于他们成为更好的探究者、思想家和富有学识的人。成为强有力的沟通者,有助于他们建立必要的自信,以便有朝一日,他们能有开放的思想,能够独自承担风险。自信可以让他们在聪慧的基础上,更好地观察周围的世界。





问题3 对汇佳学生有怎样的感受?

How do you feel about Huijia students?

7f5441c674df213b063364a6bea59b18.png

Each student that comes into my classroom is unique. Their individual talents never cease to amaze me. These students are indeed smart, open-minded, curious and full of energy. I have taught Huijia Preschool for two years and it has truly been a blessing to watch these young beings try their utmost best to learn new things in a way that best suits them. When challenges arise, they do not give up and that is what truly stands out for me in the Huijia students. They are trained to be independent and responsible from a young age. Through independence these children get to enhance their skills, learn right and wrong, develop their personality, and make decisions. I have grown to love every student that I have crossed paths with at Huijia. Because of their love for learning, they have inspired me to become an ever-better teacher day by day.


每个进入教室的学生都是独一无二的。他们的个人才能永远不会让我惊讶。这些学生确实聪明,思想开放、充满好奇、精力充沛。在汇佳PK年级的两年里,看着孩子们用最适合他们的方式、尽最大努力学习新事物,我感到很荣幸。当挑战出现时,汇佳的学生们从不轻易放弃,这是我眼里孩子们最大的优点。他们从小就被培养要有独立性和责任感, 通过这样的培养,孩子们可以提高技能、发展个性、学习价值观、学习做决定。我喜爱接触过的每一位汇佳学生。他们对学习的热爱,每天也激励着我成为更好的老师。





问题4 如何用学母语的方式习得英文?

How to learn English like natives?

0874143715ac9c9868d810c7af58f740.png

First and foremost, students need to be motivated. I usually ask students why they want to learn English and allow them to have those goals in mind to stay motivated from within and give a lot of praise and encouragement through positive feedback.


Secondly, we need to consider the learning environment. I get students to complete the student survey I created at the start of the year, so that I can better understand their interests, strengths, areas they want to practice and activities they enjoy. I then plan engaging student-centered classes with all of their needs and interests in mind.


Lastly, we need to build their vocabulary by introducing new words in a meaningful way. When they form the links between new words and their lives, they become relatable, used more often and in context. I do this by giving many varied vocabulary activities, so students have to use the words to complete a series of tasks.


首先,学生需要从内到外有动力去学习。我会让学生去思考为什么想学英文,并在课堂上给予很多的正面鼓励,来激发他们的内因和外因。


其次,需要创造一个纯正的语言环境。学期开始我都会了解学生的兴趣、爱好、期待提高的领域,从而在课堂上围绕这些开展活动。


最后,需要让词汇与生活关联起来。每次练习都要在一定的情境中发生,他们才会更懂得如何运用词汇和语句。课堂上我会开展各种相关活动,来提升他们对于词汇的敏感度。





问题5 人文学科对学生有什么帮助?

In which ways will Humanities help students?

9e35d61f576a0770fc089aa4ca9cdeeb.png

In the Humanities department at Huijia we teach a broad subject that encompasses a range of different disciplines. Knowledge of these allows us to better understand the world that we currently live in, whilst encouraging us to question the ways in which societies function and interact.


By exploring these big questions, students learn and refine an important skill set, such as investigation, research and an ability to handle often imperfect and subjective evidence with skepticism, in order to come to the most valid conclusions.


Besides that, it fosters empathy. As we begin to understand different cultures, learn about their histories and their struggles, recognize the similarities and appreciate the differences with our own, we become more understanding and tolerant human beings, something which I believe is paramount to ensuring the progress of civilization.


汇佳的人文是多学科的综合。它让学生可以更好去了解我们当下生活的世界,并不断去思考社会是如何运转和交互的。在探讨这些话题的过程中,学生会学习探究、调研的能力和批判性思维,从而成为一个独立的学习者。


而人文最宝贵的地方在于,它可以培育一个人的同理心,去了解不同文化、不同历史,认同和欣赏与自己有差异的地方,从而成为一个更加包容的人,而这正是人类文明持续进步的关键所在。





问题6 商管课程最希望培养学生什么品质?

What quality matters most in Business Management?

e34988d495fca20325ee687cb3ca3a0f.png


I want them to develop an ENTREPRENEURIAL MINDSET. Become risk-takers and thinkers according to the IB Profile. We have a lot of problems in the world that require attention. I want them to tackle these problems like how the best entrepreneurs would do it.


Hit 4 birds with one stone while they are at it: have social, economic, and ecological sustainability while providing their solutions to the world and keep score of the fun.


我希望培养他们的企业家精神,敢于冒险,敢于创新。现在的世界有太多需要解决的问题了,我希望他们可以和创业者一样去面对和处理它们。


在汇佳的商管课上,我希望学生能够学习到社会、经济、可持续生态的知识,同时将其运用于真实问题的解决当中。





问题7 汇佳的IBDP艺术课程有何与众不同之处?

What is the uniqueness of IBDP art courses in Huijia?

dd5eef7695fb08dc3e9b23fd7175a41c.png


During IBDP art courses, we analyze great artists, absorb inspirations, but never stop then. All the analyses are solid foundation for students to create work of their own, with independent ideas, expression, etc.


We strongly encourage students to see more, practice more, keep up with latest art form, but not just imitation. Art derives from true life, and everybody has their own ideas to say. That’s the point.


汇佳的IBDP艺术课会做很多分析、探究,但并不止步于此。我们希望学生运用灵感后自行创作,表达自己的态度和观点。


艺术源于生活,每个人都有自己的想法。开阔视野之后,最重要的是独立思考,将之转化为自己的语言,这才是关键。




问题8 IB教育最大的特点是?

What is the biggest feature of the IB education?

59c8f084d37bc533065de4db5ad42a29.png


I was an IB student in high school back in 1975, so I can tell you that there are two main treasures that you keep from IB for a lifetime. One is called: “learning how to learn,” and most of us know it as the Approaches to Learning (ATL). This is something that makes you a lifelong learner. The other one is called: “knowing about knowing,” and it refers to the critical thinking approach that we learn from the Theory of Knowledge (TOK).


Research demonstrates that IB students are very successful, and our success is not limited to getting good grades in school or making money. We have the power of perseverance to accomplish goals and a positive attitude to face difficulty. We choose our university(ies) and graduation is not the end, but just another benchmark on our lifetime map.


Far beyond graduation, we become valuable contributors to our communities ANYWHERE in the world – and as your Director of Curriculum, I will make sure that for those who choose space-related careers, this idea will be valid out of this planet, too. I’m committed to that!


回到1975年,我在中学时也曾是一名IB学生。因此我可以说,IB模式有两个最重要的宝藏,你可以受用终身。一个是“学习如何学习”,我们多数人都知道它被称为学习方法(ATL),会让你成为终身的学习者。另一个是“了解如何求知”,它是指从知识理论(TOK)中学到的批判性思维方法。


研究表明,IB学生非常成功,这种成功不仅限于在学校取得好成绩或在工作中赚钱。我们有坚持不懈的力量去实现目标,积极向上的态度来迎接困难。选择大学和毕业并非终点,只是我们生命地图上的又一个标注。


远在毕业之后,在地球上的任何角落,我们都会为自己的社区作出有价值的贡献——作为汇佳的课程主任,对于一些选择从事太空相关职业的学生们,我会确保这个想法在地球外也是可行的。我将致力于此!







每一个汇佳的外教都有自己的特点。他们或被学生亲切称为“蓝眼睛大胡子叔叔”,或因别出心裁的课堂活动而深受喜爱。


他们用自己的故事和对教学的理解,为学生打开一扇窗,看到更为广阔的世界;同时亦践行着“双语双文化”的内涵,为汇佳注入新的生命力。


可爱的外教们,谢谢你们的存在,祝教师节快乐!

Thank you for being with us. 

Happy Teachers’ Day!
