義大焦點 IN FOCUS WEEK 12

01I-Shou International Preschool (ISIP) Working Walls

One of the essential elements of an I-Shou classroom is making use of our physical space in a way that supports student learning. At the ISIP students and teachers have been busy perfecting their physical environments to support key features of the IB programme.

Stepping into an ISIP classroom one can see student created wonder walls, learner profile traits used to support character development, collaborative inquiry, and explorations into our transdisciplinary themes.  By decorating our classroom with essential elements of the IB programme, students and teachers are better able to routinely include language and inquiry practices that support student growth.

Not only do these displays create colourful and inviting environments, they also encourage the skills and attributes that we hope our students and teachers strive to develop.


02Grade 6 Readers Theatre: Highest Distinction!

Grade 6 students began their Readers Theater experience by preparing and auditioning. Those that were selected began to practice during every breaktime to memorize lines, improve their clarity and voice and work on their fluency.

On Wednesday, November 16, students competed in Cishan against other schools in the area. Our grade 6 students showed their confidence, enthusiasm and used their English speaking skills to put on an incredible performance! They incorporated facial expressions, body movements and acting techniques to set them above the rest!

With the support and guidance of Teacher Asli and Teacher Taryn, I-Shou students received the highest distinction!

Congratulations to all students and teachers involved in this confidence building experience!




03International Secondary Department (ISD) English Students Use Literature to Analyze Real-life Problems Faced by Teenagers

ISD Grade 9 English Language Acquisition students started the novel Speak by Laurie Halse Anderson.  The book is about a teenage girl who experienced a very traumatic event prior to starting 9th grade and how she eventually learned how to cope and become stronger. As a pre-reading activity, the students worked in groups to discuss and answer a series of questions about belonging, bullying, friendships, and coping.



04College Entrance Examination Center (CEEC) University Major Inventory Test

The Director of the Counseling Office guided the senior students in the Secondary Bilingual Department to complete the university major inventory test conducted by the College Entrance Examination Center in Taiwan. This is a very important process to support our Grade 12 students to carefully examine their possible choices of majors for university. Students all took it seriously and asked several questions. After this inventory test, our Grade 12 students knew better about their university choices.


05Chinese Language and Culture Course

Sixth graders learn about Taiwanese customs, such as the Dragon Boat Festival, Mid-Autumn Festival, and worship, in our Chinese language and culture course. Through reports and practical work, students learn the skills of retrieving, organizing, and publishing in the process of understanding Taiwanese culture.
