At Wagor we have a science curriculum which has been developed over many years to develop a sense of wonder and inspiration in the children based on observing everything around us. Scientific thought is very important for all people on the Earth. It is not based on emotion or culture. Our science program in Wagor takes the children on a step by step journey of discovery which slowly starts to make sense of the world around us and beyond. The children will see many interesting things for themselves, which makes them inquisitive and want to learn more. Learning to name the parts of a plant is not science, looking at how plants make the sugar for all the other living creatures is. This also leads to the conclusion that plants must have been on the Earth before animals. Children need to be taught to use logic and reason in their lives. All the subject of living things is taught as part of evolution to show how it all fits together like a giant jigsaw puzzle. You don t need all the pieces to know the puzzle is real because the pieces do not fit together by luck. Children will learn to look for patterns in living things that tell the story of where people come from. They will look down a microscope and see the first creature on the Earth to have left and right and single cells which can move and have senses. Their DNA can still be found in us and the DNA which gives them two little eye spots, is the same DNA which gives us two eyes. We are all part of the same evolution. They are the only children who get to see all these things when they are so young, but the lessons show how much the children enjoy the science, and the results show they are not too young to be taught like this. Due to I have worked with the same excellent teachers for so long the science gets better and better each year. Many schools change teachers too often which is a sign things are not improving each year, just staying the same. I am giving a presentation to other scientists in Hong Kong next month to show them how we teach, so we know ere are a truly modern school, with good methods.
16 紙 上 展 覽 第 16 頁 / 共 19 頁 Grade Six Conversation Class Tr. Dan The general goal of the class is to give the students additional speaking practice. The class uses a picture dictionary as a text book. In addition, students have notebooks for them to glue in the weekly content. Every unit has vocabulary and sentence patterns to practice. Typically there is an introductory part of each class. The vocabulary and sentence patterns are introduced. Then it s practice time. Practice can include pair work, a survey, small group work, or dialogues. Lower grade students fill in the blanks for their dialogues while upper grade students learn to write their own. In addition to the units based on the picture dictionary, there are several cultural units that talk about different parts of Taiwanese and western culture. The Moon Festival and Halloween are two examples. These units have more vocabulary because the sentence patterns repeat over the year. The primary goal of the class is to improve student s speaking ability. The secondary goals are to improve student s eye contact, and work on using intonation and emotion while speaking. This is how real conversation works. A tertiary goal is to work on making connections with vocabulary because in conversation, you can always be introduced to new vocabulary and students need practice learning how to process new vocabulary on the fly. You can t stop a conversation to look a word up in the dictionary. Conversation class will be starting soon. It s time to start talking.
