在社会科学类课程中,学生需要为他们的笔记本制作一个封面。考虑到学生的学术水平和英语能力,通过这样的方式,学生能在课程开始之前展示对世界历史或美国历史的个人理解, 区别于简单的书写,这样的方式更直观、让人印象深刻。


In our Socials department at Xiangxian High, all of our students are required to make a cover for their notebooks. Given the academic level and English proficiency of English Language Learners (ELLs) in general, the very act of illustrating their personal understanding of World History or American History at the beginning of the course gives them the opportunity to express that understanding outside simply writing.

使老师能够更深入地了解学生可能感兴趣的一些个人话题,并考虑能否将一些合适的话题加入到课程内容中去。此外,为笔记本制作封面的学习任务会让同学们产生一种投资增值的既视感受,从而激励他们更好地保存这些笔记


It allows for me, the teacher, to gain insight on some personal topics that the students may be interested in and I can see if those topics can be implemented into the course throughout the semester/ year. The task of creating a cover for their notebook also gives them an immediate sense of investment in their notebooks and adds value, which serves as an incentive for them to take better care of these notebooks.

教学方式




学生还要为课程的每个单元预留一个空白的首页(title page),要求他们在完成该单元的所有笔记后填充内容。制作单元首页是让学生进行自我思考的一种方式,学生自己选择要在单元首页强调哪些历史事件。对学生来说,复习巩固是极其重要的,这项活动为他们提供了一种简洁而有效的方法,以视觉呈现的形式将每个单元的重要历史事件和历史事实概括在一页纸上。


The students are also required to create a title page for each unit they have within the course. This is a page that the students are instructed to keep blank until they have almost finished or completely finished the notes for that unit. This is an act of self-reflection on which events they choose to highlight for that unit. It is extremely important for students to reflect back on their resources and this activity provides them a concise yet effective method for determining the important events or facts from that unit onto one page in the form of a visual representation.

Learning Tips 

学习小贴士


要学好这门课,同学们需要认真听讲、做好笔记、完成作业并好好准备考试,这样同学们才能跟上节奏,为新单元的学习打下坚实基础。


To master World History, students need to pay the closest attention to the teacher in class, take all the notes, do all the homework, and study hard for the quizzes and exams. If a student fails to do any of these things, he or she will fall behind, and it will be difficult for him or her to learn and understand new topics.



在《世界历史》这门课程中,外教老师通过让学生动手制作笔记本封面和单元首页等教学方式,调动和维持学生的学习积极性,让同学们独立自主思考,养成总结复习的好习惯,保证了教学的有效性。并充分了解每个学生的兴趣所在,在已有教学内容的基础上与同学们探讨有趣的话题,丰富教学内容。
