English Excellence through Stimulation and Experiential Learning @ CUHK

May 1, 2017

Excited to launch my new programme, a 15-hour programme for a group of gifted students! My 3rd course written for the Program for the gifted and talented in CUHK.

3 hours per lesson, and no one ever asked for a break. Can you believe it? Because they are too busy having fun and learning at the same time.

 

So now, 3 lessons have been conducted. Things that surprised me but kinda expected maybe.

 

1. They did research and looked for further references themselves automatically. 
2. They used their phones (one even brought his macbook) but for the tasks.
3. They engaged themselves in active discussions, negotiated with another team, came up with missing documents, asked for agreements, built their own connection with their team mates, amazing team work.
4. They requested me to replay some videos so that they could jot down notes.
5. They finished the unfinished tasks at home.
6. They revised the notes from previous lessons and more importantly they prepared for the upcoming lessons.
7. They discussed the meanings of different vocab.
8. They helped each other out.
9. They improvised.
10. They asked me when I will teach Phase 2... 
11. They have been having fun!!!!
12. They are very entertaining hahahaha... I was laughing out crazily with my teaching assistant.

 

and much more...

 

How encouraging and rewarding! Learning is fun!

 

They learn in the state of confusion... stimulation and experiential learning... They rock!

 

Can't wait to meet this bunch of students!
