英國語文科課程特色 English Language Curriculum

 

In recent years, our team has tackled tough questions and developed various methods, trying to examine how new strategies of teaching and learning can be effective, exciting and relevant both to teachers and students. We have assembled an exceptional team of supporting teachers who are committed to maintaining professional excellence and delivering quality teaching to students. Our team believes that we are not successful as teachers unless we work at the intersection where stronger Interest, greater Confidence and more active Engagement overlap for students. By promoting the importance of  I.C.E. ,our team can focus on discovering the potential of all students.

 

********************************************************************************

To embrace a change for the better, our team is moving in the direction of:  

 

1)     Promoting cooperative learning & self-directed learning  

The school-based JS project curriculums have proved to be effective in promoting cooperative and self-directed learning. Teachers team up to guide students to set goals, select, manage and assess their own learning activities. Through repetitive collaborative activities among peers, students learn from the transition of being reactive to proactive and take greater responsibility for their learning.

 

2)     Nurturing habits of self-regulated learning

All students in junior forms subscribe to an e-based learning platform – English Builder, and the vast majority of them are self-motivated to finish the weekly exercises without close supervision. Class-based Pilot Reading Programmes are launched to cultivate a habit of reading newspapers and magazines in students. More advanced follow-up tasks include theme-based concept maps and concept explanation videos. Extra sets of HKDSE practice paper are saved in Dropbox and to Google drive for students’ self-access learning.

 

3)     Teaching with authentic materials

The speaking lessons and lessons for English Electives are now focused primarily on developing students’ presentation and discussion skills through Language Arts, including poetry, songs, monologues, mini-dramas and elements of popular culture. Other authentic sources of teaching materials, for example, Voice Tube, CNN magazines and SCMP are constantly used in class. All these have made the English Language curriculum at POMA more exciting and rewarding for students.
