English B‘Desert Island’Presentations

 英语B ‘荒岛’口语展示

 

Pre-IB Grade 10 students did their first solo oral presentations in their English B classes this week under the topic of ‘Music’. Their task was to imagine they were to be cast away on a desert island all by themselves and could only choose one music track to listen to for the rest of their lives there.

IB 预备10年级学生进行了开学以来的第一次英语B课堂的口语PPT展示。展示的内容主题为‘音乐’。学生们的任务是:试想你将被遗忘在一座大海荒漠孤岛上并且你只能选择一首音乐带去此岛上度过余生,你将会选择那一首歌。


Students were instructed in segments throughout the whole process, from researching the first part of their presentations on the singers’ background to the second part on their feelings towards the chosen songs. During the preparation of their presentations in class, their teachers were on hand to make sure their slides were done appropriately and to troubleshoot any problems they have encountered to do with the technicalities. Once their powerpoint/ keynote slides were made, they were asked to write a coherent script in a separate Word document to help them with the language in their actual delivery.

同学们以小组的形式,从通过网上搜索了解自己所选的音乐的背景知识来完成PPT展示的第一部分到表达个人情感与此音乐的共鸣来完成展示的第二部分。在同学们的所有展示准备过程中,老师们都及时给予了建议和意见来确保PPT内容的准确与合理性并及时解决同学们在PPT制作过程中遇到的各种困难。当同学们已经完成PPT制作之后,老师又让大家在单独的word文档里写出展示稿来帮助更好地思考如何进行英语的口头表述。


When they were ready to present, student names were drawn randomly from a box in class and they went to the front of the class one at a time. Mark sheets were explained and distributed to the whole class in advance and the rest of the students had to peer-assess as they listen to one another’s presentations. Immediately after every presentation, their teachers led a feedback session on what worked well and what did not. When the whole class had finished their presentations, all the students were also tasked to write a short reflection on how they felt they have done, personal or newly discovered strengths and weaknesses, etc. in their notebooks.

老师们提前准备了名字盒,每个人的名字都写在了纸上,折好放在了盒子里让大家抽签选取。并且,老师准备了口语PPT展示评分表格发给大家。当一位同学在讲台展示的时候,其他的同学,包括老师都会为此位同学评分。分数准则包括:演讲内容,PPT演说结构,展示技巧以及PPT制作有效性。在充分地准备之后,同学们一一进行了展示。每一位同学展示后,老师都会让大家给予及时反馈和建议。在所有展示结束之后,每位同学都进行了反思,并总结写出自己此次PPT口语展示的优缺点以及对于自己在展示过程中的切身体会。同时,通过给自己的同伴评分,同学们更加深刻地体会学习到,如何更好地进行口语展示。


This activity was a milestone for the Grade 10 English B students as it was their first attempt at individual presentations. It allowed them to develop their oral fluency, alongside ATL (Approaches To Learning) skills such as Communication, Research and Thinking skills. Everyone had fun listening to some wonderful music and improving their English at the same time!

这次英语口语展示活动是10年级英语B学生第一次自己独立构思制作展示并反思的具有里程碑意义的活动。通过此次活动,同学们的口语流利程度以及ATL技能(例如交流沟通能力,研究能力以及思考能力)都得到很大提高。同时,通过聆听同伴们的展示以及音乐的欣赏,大家都乐在其中。
