牛刀小试锋芒露 春日迟迟佳报频


喜报! 园外学生2020ETS批判性思维挑战赛再创佳绩!

We would like to congratulate our students who have achieved good results in the 2020ETS Critical Thinking Challenge!

 

20201213日,苏州工业园区外国语学校IB国际高中学生在美国教育考试服务中心(ETS)与ASDAN中国(阿思丹学院)共同推出的批判性思维挑战赛中,通过层层挑战,脱颖而出,斩获佳绩!

On December 13th, 2020, students from Suzhou Industrial Park Foreign Language School took part in the Critical Thinking Challenge, which was held by both ETS and ASDAN, and they achieved good results at the end.

 

 

其中,刘广宜,潘佳妮两位同学更是以全国前10%的优异成绩,获得了比赛的一等奖!

We would like to especially congratulate students Liu Guangyi and Pan Jiani, who had achieved a ranking in the highest tier of the competition, which places them in the top 10% of the country!

 

 

现在,让我们听一听他们的声音:

Now, let’s hear from them:

 

Y11IBDP刘广宜:

“参加这次批判性思维大赛,我得到的不仅是一个奖项,更是一次对自我的锻炼,是一次对思维,对逻辑和对批判能力的进一步培养。考试前的每周六老师都会给我们进行训练,而那也是我第一次了解三段论和各种谬论。我也对三段论这一个最基础的推理判断产生了很大的兴趣。在推理演绎中,语言不再是随意组成的简单句子,而是富有内部逻辑和关联的数学公式,探索在语言的逻辑中我们的思维也可以被充分的锻炼,而这对我们写作和演讲中观点的形成具有很大帮助,也有助于提升论证和逻辑的结构性。这是一次很有趣的经历,虽然题目没有想象中的难,但是我从中学到了很多以前没有调查过的东西,有很多意外的收获。”

Y11IBDP Suki:

“When I participated in this critical thinking contest, I received not only an award, but also training in logical and critical thinking. Before the exam, the teacher trained us every Saturday. That was the first time I understood syllogisms and various fallacies, and my interest was piqued. In reasoning and deduction, language is no longer a simple sentence composed randomly, but a mathematical formula that is rich in internal logic and relevance. It is through exploration of the logic of language that our thinking can also be fully exercised, and this is important for our writing and speech. It also helps to improve the structure of arguments and makes the expression of our ideas coherent and convincing. This is a very interesting experience. Although the questions are not as difficult as I had imagined, there were many unexpected benefits for me and I learned a lot in the process.”

 

Y10APDP李哲铭瑞:

“早些时候我认识了批评性思维,并且逐步发展,从中收益。直到高中我才真正的接触到批判性思维的内核,以批判的眼光去看待人和物,对万事保持疑问与好奇。在老师的指导与讲解中我的个人思维能力逐渐提高,从随波逐流到以自己的意识来审视世界。尽管成果有些差强人意,但是我真正的懂得了何为“学问”,何为批判。学问二字,“学”是接收外界的信息;“问”是除杂取精的过程。只有学会批判,才能做到诚心勤勉,才能将学问应用在各个领域。正如罗伯特·恩尼斯所言:“所谓批判性思维,是针对相信什么或做什么的决定,而进行的理性的反省思维。”

Y10APDP Ray:

“Earlier I learned about critical thinking, and gradually developed my thinking skills, which greatly benefited me. It wasn't until high school that I really came into contact with the core of critical thinking, which was to look at people and things with a critical eye, and to keep questioning and staying curious about everything. Through the teacher's guidance, my critical thinking ability gradually improved, and I went from accepting norms to examining and critiquing them. Although I am not completely satisfied with my analysis, I have come to understand what is "learning" and what is "criticism". "Learning" is to receive information from the outside world; "asking" is the process of removing irrelevance and extracting essence. Only by learning to critique, can we be sincere and diligent, and apply our knowledge in various fields. As Robert Ennis said, "The so-called critical thinking is a rational reflective thinking directed at the decision of what to believe or what to do.”

 

Y11IBDP潘佳妮:

“这次的比赛鼓励了我,我要非常感谢老师们平常的细心辅导,他们很有耐心,我有问题都会帮我解答。如果没有他们的鼓励,我也不会获奖。”

Y11IBDP Janey

“This competition encouraged me. I would like to thank the teachers for their diligent attentive guidance. They are very patient and helpful. Without their encouragement, I would not have won the prize.”

 

批判性思维能力是世界各大名校非常看重的基本学术能力,也是当代文化交流学习的一项核心能力。由ETS命题的SATGRE等学术考试都非常注重批判性思维能力。

ASDAN 批判性思维挑战就是以 HEIghten 批判性思维测评为基础开展的学术竞技。题型覆盖了区分事实和观点,寻找论证隐含假设,对结论进行评价,对论证进行驳斥以及推理排序等方方面面。

Critical thinking is a basic academic ability that is highly valued by major universities in the world, and it is also a core ability for contemporary cultural exchanges and learning. Academic tests such as SAT and GRE, which are set by ETS, are very focused on critical thinking skills.

ASDAN Critical Thinking Challenge is an academic competition based on HEIghten's critical thinking test. The question types include distinguishing facts from opinions, searching for implicit hypotheses of arguments, evaluating conclusions, refuting arguments, and sorting inferences.

 

我校学生可以在此次批判性思维挑战赛中脱颖而出,既是因为同学们自身强大的逻辑推理能力,也得益于老师及学校在平日的教学中鼓励学生用批判性的思维和眼光看问题。

 

Our students stood out in this critical thinking challenge not only because of their strong logical reasoning ability, but also because of the school’s focus on using critical thinking and vision in everyday teaching and learning.

 

 

让我们再一次对获奖的同学们表示祝贺,也祝愿园外学子能够再接再励,再更多比赛中取得喜人的成绩!

Let us once again congratulate the students who have won awards, and we hope our students will continue to do their best and achieve impressive results in more competitions!
