退笔成山未足珍,

读书万卷始通神。


        北风其凉,雨雪其雱。寒冷的天气阻挡不了我校教师自我提升、努力学习的热情。

        2017年12月9日-10日,我校教师Melody、Uger和Jo参加了在中国深圳举办的“College Board AP教师培训”。

        三位教师一参加完AP教师培训,就欣喜的分享了此行的收获和感受。让我们以三位老师的不同视角,一起来回顾分享一下此次的AP教师培训吧!

化学

      两天非常紧凑的AP化学培训,非常充实。

      培训老师主要就考试大纲、每个章节之间的关系及如何更加合理安排教学的进度进行了讲解,同时也分享他的多年来的教学心得。期间也有分组讨论,简单的化学实验操作,和来自全国各地的比较有经验的化学老师们进行了分享交流,以及一些常规的实验的安排。此次培训收获满满,感谢学校给予这次培训的大力支持。

The AP World History training course was excellent. Trainer Mike Burns provided a ton of resources, helped with pacing guides, gave recommendations on how best to teach ESL students, and the brainstorming section with the other teachers in training benefitted everyone, I believe. The exam practice and exam marking sections were fundamental for new AP teachers.    

Overall, it was a great experience. I will probably pay out of pocket for the next training course. I’m interested in teaching the AP US History course as well as the AP World History course in SNA next year – of course if the opportunity permits.


       这次AP世界历史课程的培训非常棒!讲师迈克伯恩斯提供了很多资源,给与我们很多关于如何教好学习ESL学生的指导和建议。与其他老师的头脑风暴环节也让在场的每一个人都受益匪浅。考试练习和考试标记的部分对新教授AP课程的教师非常重要。

       总之,这是一段非常棒的经历。我非常愿意继续参加接下来的培训。今后在北美,如果条件允许,我会对教授AP美国历史和AP世界历史都非常感兴趣!

This past weekend 2017 Winter AP Workshop in China from December 9th to 10th in Shenzhen has been nothing short of insightful and was full of useful information. I feel grateful for the opportunity for continuous learning, and to Dr. Alison Schleede and SNA in supporting and recommending me to attend this (especially Ms. Carolyn Gao and Ms. Carrie Lu in the logistics of ensuring our travel arrangements and registration for the workshop).

I partook in the AP English Language and Composition workshop, and the instructor was Rebecca McFarlan – with 35+ years of experience of teaching the AP English Language and Literature courses in the United States of America. The knowledge, methods in pedagogy, as well as experience shared from her were very informative and helpful. The other teachers attending the workshop, along with myself, got to experience how it was like to be a student, as well as a teacher, from the different perspectives she showed us in group demonstrations. More importantly, the AP English exam structure was broken down for us, and sample questions and student essays were shown and explained, so we as teachers can really have a more insightful understanding at the high level of reading and writing that is demonstrated by the students who take AP English.

One other thing I took away from this workshop is the strict requirement for students who take AP courses to be highly proficient in English. We were told by our instructor, Rebecca McFarlan, that AP English courses are much more difficult than the SATs exam, because in AP English exams, it is more than just reading comprehension – one must also be able to infer, and understand the connotations and sometimes the cultural nuances of literature histories, backgrounds and contexts, and demonstrating critical thinking and analysis in clear and succinct writing.

Overall, I thoroughly enjoyed the weekend AP English Language and Composition workshop in Shenzhen. I am thankful to be able to attend it and look forward to further enhance my own professional development through longer workshops and courses. I am looking forward to implementing the skills and strategies I learned already in my English Honors classes currently, and as well as teaching this to eager learners who would like to take something very challenging but at the same time rewarding such as the course of AP English Language and Composition. 


       上周末,在深圳参加的AP教师培训内容丰富。非常感谢北美高中和Alison校长能支持并推荐我让我有机会参加此次培训进行更进一步的学习。

        我参加的AP英语语言表达和写作培训,讲师是一个在美国有着35年AP英语语言与文学教学经验的老师,名叫Rebecca McFarlan。她所讲述的知识点、教学方法以及经验分享都非常翔实且颇有助益。她从案例出发,以团体的形式共同从不同角度体验了这些知识点和教学方法是如何作用于学生和教师的。更重要的是,她把AP英语考试结构分解成各个部分,加上例题和学生作文,都详尽的展示和讲解给我们。这样我们作为教师,在学生学习的AP英语更高层次的阅读和写作知识点上,能真正的有更好更深层次的理解。

        此次培训另一个收获就是想要学生能够精通英语就必须对其严格要求。Rebecca McFarlan老师说, AP英语课程比SAT考试要难很多, 在AP英语考试中不仅有阅读理解,还需要有能力去理解内涵、了解历史背景、知晓文化差异、结合上下文以及展示批判性思维、理性分析和精炼的写作。

       总之,我非常非常享受这次在深圳的AP培训经历。我非常感激能够参加此次培训,我也期待通过此次培训课程能够进一步提高自身专业水平。我也期待在我荣誉英语的课堂中能够实现这些教学技巧和策略。同样也期待着将这些知识教授给求知若渴、想要挑战自己的学生们。希望能参加更多此类的培训!







        勤奋是生命的密码,能译出一部壮丽的史诗。未来,是一段漫长而富有挑战的旅途,愿我们在北美的大家庭中,向上述三位优秀教师学习,培养学习能力、提升专业知识,在广阔的教育之空展翅高飞!
