Active and hands-on activities is the type of instruction that we encourage in Science as opposed to rote learning. Through trial and error, the students could examine their mistakes and successes and improve on their designs. In doing so the students engaged in critical thinking, problem-solving and reflection – skills vital to becoming excellent young scientists. During the creation of their designs, the students had to work in teams and figure out how to collaborate with one another. While sharing their work to the class, the students were able to practice their speaking and presentation skills.

  在康橋的英語自然課裡,老師們鼓勵學生不要死記硬背書本上的知識,而是在操作活動中親自體驗,讓學習可以更主動、更內化,並在反覆試驗與嘗試錯誤中,檢討分析成功及或不成功的原因,再加以思考改良設計。透過這樣的活動可以培養學生的批判思考能力、問題解決能力以及反思能力-這都是成為一位年輕優秀的科學家所應該具有的能力。在整個設計、製作、測試與記錄過程中,學生也學習如何與他人團結合作完成專題。上台發表時,也同時練習了英語口說能力和上台報告的技巧。

現在就讓我們一起來欣賞英語科學課堂上的學習風景 :
