Non- Chinese Teachers
The major teaching materials of our school are adopted from the theme books which are published by non-textbook publishers. In order to enhance the familiarity of non-Chinese kids with the context of theme from big classes, extra-group activities is arranged for boosting the language ability of non-Chinese students. Those activities are arranged based on the big classes’ theme which focuses on some extracted life-oriented language elements (e.g. oral expression, usage of vocabularies, reading skills, etc.) as the main teaching targets and aims of designed activities. Moreover, activities are also in line with the concept of a comprehensive curriculum, adding learning areas such as mathematics and arts for children.
There will be an Observation Evaluation Form for students individually based on the extra-group activities for increasing the caring of the needs of non-Chinese students and leading parents to understand the children’s Chinese learning progress effectively.
