Year 10 Student-led Conference and IB Exhibition Showcase Student Achievements

IB高中部10年级学生主导会议和作品展览

 

On Friday 5th May, the pre-IB Year 10 students held their first Student-led Conference in which every student displayed some of their excellent work across their subjects to their parents. On the same day, parents also got to visit an IB Exhibition in the library building to see for themselves the results of student efforts throughout the whole of the first semester till now. The day ended with parent-teacher consultations over their children’s performances in their mid-semester report cards.

五月五日的周五,IB高中部十年级预备班的同学们首次举办了一场独特的学生主导式家长会。会上,同学们向自己的父母展示了他们在各学科学习中所取得的成果。当天,家长们还到学校大礼堂一楼展厅参观了IB高中优秀学生作品展,此次作品展陈列着学生们入学IB以来经过努力钻研创作完成的优秀作品。最后,家长们与老师们就学生的期中表现进行了深度的交谈,本次活动也随之告已圆满结束。

The Student-led Conference is an annual pre-IB event with the objective of allowing Year 10 students to build confidence and pride in the work they have produced since joining the IB high school. Each student prepared one to two pieces of work they are the proudest of in every subject they take, whether they be tests, quizzes, interactive activities, projects, essays or homework, and arranged them neatly in a folder to talk their parents through their ideas, difficulties overcome in the process and what they have learnt at the completion. Parents came out of the conference with a greater understanding of what their children have been taught in the pre-IB course, both in terms of subject tasks as well as other essential attributes such as oral abilities and presentation skills.

学生主导会议是IB高中部一年一度的重要活动。此活动为十年级的学生们提供一次正式的公开的课业展示机会,活动旨在通过学生向家长展示入学IB以来的学习成果来树立学生的自信心,增强学生的自豪感。每位学生都挑选了近一年来自己最为满意的学科作品/作业——考卷、小测验、口语互动活动、专题作业、论文和课后作业等;并以学科文件夹展示或PPT说明的方式来向父母清晰明了地陈述自己在完成作品/作业进程中的思考与收获——克服的困难、学到的知识、掌握的技能、反思后的经验总结等等。通过此次会议,家长们不仅更全面地了解了自己孩子在十年级预备课程中的学习任务和目标,也借着孩子们不断提升的口头表达能力与演讲技巧对“IB学习者”培养目标有了更深入的理解。

The IB Exhibition was a chance to showcase the Year 10s’ Extended Project essays which were their first long, research essays that took them a whole week to accomplish, the Year 11s’ excellent Visual Art pieces and the Year 9 incoming pre-IB students’ interdisciplinary pieces at the end of their Orientation sessions recently. During the few weeks of their Orientation sessions to get a taste of the IB, the Year 9 students with IB offers took lessons in English, Chinese, Essential Studies, Mathematics, the Sciences, Economics/ Business Studies and Visual Art/ Music, depending on subject selections. Then they were guided by their IB teachers to combine what they have learnt in several different subjects into either a piece of art work, poem or music which were also highlighted at the IB Exhibition. That morning, visitors were treated to live music by the said students while they milled around the hall admiring all the other creative art pieces and essays. A projector on site also screened various photographs of the IB students’ recent Service Trips to Thailand and Yunnan, adding to the lively atmosphere of the whole place! Along the IB corridor, posters of the trips designed by students and staff were also hanged to narrate their memorable experiences and learning.

学生作品展为十年级的学生展示自己撰写的课题研究小论文提供了机会。这次课题研究项目要求学生完成近2000字的英文论文或者近2400字的中文论文,这对十年级学生来说是他们首次尝试写作长篇论文。学生们用了整整一周的时间才最终完稿。同时展出的还有十一年级同学们创作的优秀的视觉艺术作品以及将要入学IB高中部的在校九年级学生们在参加IB新生集训课程中完成的跨学科作业/作品。

九年级新生集训科目包括英语、中文、核心问题研究、数学、科学、经济/商务和视觉艺术/音乐等。在短短几周里,九年级学生们根据他们的选科,完成了集训。之后,在IB各门学科老师的指导下,学生们将所学到的各学科的知识融会贯通,创作完成了跨学科的作业/作品,如将英语诗歌与绘画结合完成的视觉艺术绘画作品,或将音乐与英语诗歌相结合做出的英文歌曲展示等。在当天学生作品展中,由九年级学生们组成的乐队,也为家长们与其他参展者现场热情洋溢地演奏了自己创作的英文歌曲。

在展会上,背景墙上滚动播放着十年级学生与十一年级学生参加 “云南与泰国义工之行”的照片,为整个展厅增添了灵动的气氛。同时,在IB教学楼的四楼走廊里,也展览着师生们为这次义工之精心行设计的海报,这些海报以形象的图片、有趣的文字向家长们生动地叙述着义工行程中一个个有趣的故事。

At the end of the day, parents of both grades of students left the school not only with their children’s report cards, but also a deeper sense of appreciation for what they have achieved so far. The way students have shown themselves capable of independent, interdisciplinary learning as well as learning through physically volunteering to help the less advantaged in their Service Trips all bear testament to the dynamic and unconventional approaches in the IB!

一天的活动结束后,学生家长们不是仅仅得到了自己孩子的一张成绩单,而是更深地理解了自己孩子在IB学习中真正获得的知识、能力。学生们通过此次云南与泰国之行,既培养了独立担当的能力和跨学科的学习能力,也真切体会到凭借身体力行可以为贫困地区作出一定的贡献,而这一切都是IB所鼓励与倡导的具有创新精神的学习方法与途径!
