第七届教学大赛视听说组二等奖陈钰授课

本科毕业于华中科技大学外语学院,2006年5月毕业于上海理工大学外语学院外国语言学与应用语言学专业,获硕士学位。现任教于上海理工大学外语学院,主讲课程有英语视听、英语口语、公众演讲等,多次获得校级教学优秀奖。2016年5月获“外教社杯”全国高校外语教学大赛上海赛区视听说课组特等奖、全国总决赛视听说课组二等奖。 点滴在心 转眼间,三天的全国教学比赛已结束多时,但每当我回想起这场比赛,却还觉得历历在目,难以忘怀。这样的竞赛经历对于我这个已经执教多年的教师来说,是一种重新审视和努力提高自己教学能力和水平的好机会,非常难得。也非常感谢外教社为大学英语的教师们提供了一个展示自己的舞台和相互交流的机会。回想起这次比赛,从校内选拔赛到全国总决赛,大半年的时间里,一路都有我的领导、同事、家人和朋友相伴,他们给予的关心、支持和鼓励,让我每每想起,感动不已。学院院长刘芹老师为了我参赛提供了一切便利;副院长陈琦老师亲自担任领队,事无巨细,样样考虑周全;在拿到材料后那食不知味、夜不能寐的两周里,大学英语负责人顾定兰老师为我分析材料,理清思路,帮助我渐渐明确了努力方向;还有众多同事,纷纷伸出友爱之手,听我试讲,改进教案,润色课件;更有同事加挚友柏钧、马芫、周庆艳等全程在赛场聆听比赛,为我传回赛场信息,让我及时了解赛场实况,也为我争取了宝贵的准备时间。同事、家人以及朋友们的关怀和帮助,让我备受鼓舞,也深感安慰,我唯有尽力做好,努力拼搏。 我一直热爱教师这个职业,执教多年来,始终对教学充满了热情,不断地摸索提高自身的教学水平。参加教学大赛为我提供了很好的机会去聆听专家的教诲,同时学习其它院校同仁的优秀之处。在比赛中,除了要考查老师本身的专业素养、教学技能外,更会考验心理素质。因此,如何在不同的教学对象面前做到从容淡定、收放自如,如何在面对巨大压力的时候,顶住压力,处变不惊,需更多实战历练,才能做得更好。 大半年来比赛中所经历过的点点滴滴,使我深深体会到大赛的意义并不只是一次简单的授课能力的比拼,而更是一次全国高校外语教学创新教学理念的探讨和推广的盛会。大赛带动的不仅仅是参赛教师的思索和探究,更带动了他(她)身后的团队乃至所在院系、学校,不断探索、改进和提高我国的高校外语教学。最后再次感谢上海外语教育出版社作为引领者,通过教学大赛带领我们不断前行。 专家点评 该教师的课堂教学讲解清晰,教态自然,师生互动频繁,整体教学效果较好。该教师的教学主要分四个部分:1)课前热身(2′26″),2)听力和练习(12′14″),3)批判性思维(5′1″),4)作业布置(36″)。四个部分之间的衔接比较自然,其中第二和第三部分是教学重点,但第四部分的时间分配明显不够合理,收尾仓促。具体分析如下: 1)课前热身:该教师首先介绍了本次授课的主题以及教学目标。教学目标包含知识、技能和策略三个目标。随后通过导入性问题与学生进行互动,导入到本课的教学内容。教学伊始,通过简短的视频来获取关键信息并有效地导入到教学重点 “diversity; Queens, New York”。但是课程开始之初,背景知识的介绍不够充分,导入性活动使得课前热身和课程脉络的呼应显得有些突兀。 2)听力和练习:在本环节,该教师对diversity进行了界定和解释,并分三步对Queens的地理位置和其多样性的原因进行了解释。教师首先以其自身在Queens做访问学者的经历来说明Queens的多样性;随后通过看视频进行事实性信息填空的形式,用具体的统计数据进一步说明其多样性;最后通过看视频回答问题的形式,引用不同的观点作为证据佐证其观点。这些体现了从简单具体的认知问题到更为复杂的归纳和总结的高级认知问题的设计思想,但第三个问题设计的侧重点是移民的类型,有些偏离了本次授课的重点。教师随后通过举例总结了如何支持观点的三种方式,即例证、数据和证据,并在每个步骤中给出了一些句型,为后面的产出性练习提供了支架式帮助。在理解视频内容的基础上,该教师先是与学生一起应用上述三种方式完成了一个练习,然后让学生通过小组合作来完成该项任务,在此过程中该教师能够与学生互动,确保每组学生均明确任务的目的与要求,并对学生的回答给予了肯定的评价,有效地完成了课程的知识和技能目标。 3)批判性思维:该教师提出了“What can diversity bring to us?”这一问题,学生进行小组讨论并对问题进行了回答,教师对学生的回答进行了归纳。其后,观看视频了解Queens居民对diversity所持的态度,最后对授课内容进行了总结和回顾。 4)作业布置:该教师结合课堂所讲的三种方法让学生对“文化认同”进行论证,以巩固及操练所学的内容;其后,又推荐了与主题相关的三个电影,以拓展所学的内容,但这项任务过泛,应给出更为明确的要求与指引。总的来说,整个教学过程比较流畅,能较好地处理教学重点,各个环节间的衔接较为紧凑,互动频繁,较好地体现了以学习者为中心的课堂教学。在教学内容的处理上,教师采取了较为多样化的练习形式,如主题词、填空和回答问题等,但缺乏对教学内容中的难点更为深入的语言分析和深度挖掘。个别教学任务缺乏足够的教学指引,如在第二部分,教师未做足够的引导就让学生进行讨论,“What can diversity bring to us?”,导致学生的回答不能完全与教师所列的答案吻合。此外,教师的个别课堂教学用语也需进一步规范,如在教学过程中多次使用“Let’s try some students.”。点评专家:赵雯教授

    一月正是集邮时
    On January 6th, Year of the Dog stamp designed by graphic designer and artist Zhou Lingzhao went on sale throughout designated post offices around the country.今年1月6日,由我国著名美术家、艺术家周令钊先生设计的狗年生肖邮票在全国指定邮局发行。In cities such as Beijing and Shanghai, stamp buyers waited in lines outside post offices days before opening hours. Every year the New Year zodiac stamps' release is eagerly anticipated by collectors. Although China Post provides online sales, many local people, especially the elderly, queue up outside post offices with some even using items such as benches to save their place in the line and meanwhile chat with fellow collectors.在北京/上海等城市,集邮爱好者们早在开售前几天就在门口大排长龙。每年新年生肖邮票的发行都备受邮迷瞩目。尽管中国邮政已经开通了线上预约销售,但是很多本地居民,特别是老一辈,仍然喜欢在邮局门口排队等待开售,他们有些甚至用椅子等用品占位,边排队边和其他的集邮迷们闲聊。The stamps were designed by 98-year-old Zhou Lingzhao, a master artist who participated in devising China's national emblem and the emblem of the Chinese People's Political Consultative Conference. He also contributed to the design of the second, third and fourth editions of yuan notes.今年的生肖邮票是由98岁高龄的艺术大师周令钊老先生设计的,他曾参与了我国国徽和人民政协会徽的设计。此外,我国发行的第二、三、四套人民币设计也都有周老先生的功劳。A year ago, Zhou was commissioned by China Post to design the postal stamp to celebrate the Year of the Dog on the Chinese lunar calendar, which will begin on February 16th. He recalled the dog which accompanied him when he went into town in his youth, and recreated it on one stamp. And he paired it with another stamp on which he drew a mother dog and a puppy, both of the same indigenous breed which is often referred to as the "zhonghuatianyuanquan", or China rural dog.一年前,周老先生受到中国邮政委托,设计戊戌狗年的生肖特种邮票。他想到了在自己年轻时陪伴自己一起前往镇上的一条狗,并把它再现于邮票之上。在与其相配套的另一枚狗年特种邮票上,他画上了一条母犬和一条幼犬,它们都是中国的特有犬种——中华田园犬。Back to the Birthplace of Stamps回到邮票的故乡On January 3rd, Britain's Royal Mail announced that characters from the award-winning hit fantasy TV series, Game of Thrones, will appear on a new series of stamps. The collection of 15 stamps will feature British contributions to the US show based on the books by George R. R. Martin.本月3日,英国皇家邮政(Britain’s Royal Mail)宣布,斩获艾美奖多个奖项的热门剧集《权力的游戏》中的主角将会亮相一系列新发行的邮票。这套邮票共有15枚,体现这部改编自乔治·雷蒙德·理查德·马丁(George Raymond Richard Martin)同名小说的热播美剧中英国的贡献。Daenerys Targaryen, Jon Snow and Arya Stark are among 10 characters featured on the set of stamps which will go on sale at UK post offices on Jan 23rd. The three are played by British actors Emilia Clarke, Kit Harington and Maisie Williams.人像邮票共有10张,包括剧中主角丹妮莉丝·坦格利安(Daenerys Targaryen)、琼恩·雪诺(Jon Snow)、艾莉亚·史塔克(Arya Stark)等人,英国邮局将于1月23日正式开售。这三个角色由英国演员艾米莉亚·克拉克(Emilia Clarke)、基特·哈灵顿(Kit Harington)和麦茜·威廉姆斯(Maisie Williams)出演。英国演员艾米莉亚·克拉克(Emilia Clarke)英国演员基特·哈灵顿(Kit Harington)英国演员麦茜·威廉姆斯(Maisie Williams)The fantasy production involves a very significant British contribution. Principal filming of the series takes place in Belfast, Banbridge and at locations elsewhere in Northern Ireland. Additional filming takes place in Scotland and other European locations including Malta, Croatia, Iceland and Spain.在这部魔幻巨制的制作中,英国功不可没。主要场景的拍摄都在北爱尔兰的贝尔法斯特、班布里奇等地完成。其余场景在苏格兰和其他欧洲国家如马耳他、克罗地亚、冰岛和西班牙等地取景拍摄。In addition to the stamps there is an extensive range of products-exclusive souvenirs, limited editions and gifts, also issued by Royal Mail. The hit TV series Game of Thrones will come to its eighth and final season in 2019.除了邮票之外,皇家邮政还发布了一系列专属纪念品、限量版礼品等衍生产品。这部人气大热的剧集将于2019年开播第八季——亦是该系列的完结季。VOCABULARYphilately:n.集邮devise:v.设计;策划
    Can You Say How You Feel?
    要说2017到2018的“跨年网红”是谁,很多人或许一下子说不上来,但点亮手机界面,你或许就有了答案——支付宝。自去年的“双十二”以来,“马云爸爸”就开启了撒钱模式,除了每天的常规红包,还在圣诞节和元旦派发了大额的专享红包,加上琳琅满目的“赏金”、“奖励金”等等,惹得每个人都心里痒痒的。到了新年,一则“支付宝版清明上河图”的文案又收获了制作精美、创意十足的好评。紧接着,支付宝账单也隆重发布,朋友圈瞬间被各位土豪们的炫目账单刷屏。2018年的第一个新年亮点也随之诞生——年度关键词。一张用户头像,配上一句带有美好解释的年度关键词,让支付宝收获了满满的好感。刚当上妈妈的关键词是“付出”,追究个性的年轻人被给予了“潮”的肯定,精致的生活家们收获了“小确幸”的标签,常年出差在外的商务人士则被冠以 “远方”。支付宝方面称,年度关键词根据用户的过往消费数据和特征生成,仅供参考。即便如此,在花样百出的今天,能有一个关键词对我们进行一个小小的概括,还是一桩新鲜有趣的事情。此次支付宝“关键词”在朋友圈中掀起的热潮,很大一部分原因还是出于人们内心对于外界评价的期待,特别是积极正面的评价概括。但是反过来,要是让我们自己对自己做一个总结,比如用一个词来概括自己的2017年,或是表达自己在新年时刻的内心感受,我们可能会不知所措,无法选择出精准的词语来对自己加以概括。从语言的角度来看,用丰富的动词来描述世界和人类生活中发生的变化是一桩难度极高的语言技能;微观来说,运用形容词来准确描绘个体内心的感受亦是一桩颇具挑战的语言行为。将大脑中的所思所想准确地转化成语言表达,或许就是我们语言学习中所追求的终极目标。不同的人生境遇造就了不同的个体性格,也因此让我们的生活呈现出属于自己的光彩。人生路漫漫,与人分享自己内心的想法是了解世界的重要方式,在此,小编禁不住要问诸君一个问题——Can you say how you feel? 答案请在今日的微课中探寻。
    EU leaders: The UK can still change mind on Brexit
    The United Kingdom can still change its mind on Brexit and stay within the European Union, senior European leaders said on Tuesday.We, here on the continent, haven’t had a change of heart. Our hearts are still open to youDonald Tusk - European Council PresidentThe president of the European Council, Donald Tusk, said in a speech to the European Parliament that Brexit would “become a reality – with all its negative consequences” – in March 2019 “unless there is a change of heart among our British friends”.Citing the UK’s Brexit Minister David Davis, who said a democracy could always change its mind, he added: “We, here on the continent, haven’t had a change of heart. Our hearts are still open to you”.His comments were supported by European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker, who told the parliamentary session that the EU door remained open and he hoped Tusk’s comments would be clearly heard in London.The Commission’s vice-president also weighed in, Frans Timmermans, telling MEPs that “if at some point the United Kingdom has second thoughts or would take another decision, obviously the European Union would leave the door open”.A harsher tone came from the European Parliament’s chief Brexit coordinator Guy Verhofstadt, who in several tweets ahead of his speech called for the withdrawal agreement to be formalised and again warned the UK there could be no “cherry-picking” on a transition period after the UK’s exit.Tusk’s suggestion was quickly dismissed by Conservative Brexiteer Bernard Jenkin, who told Sky News it would be “absurd” for the government “to just ignore the referendum”. The UK voted to leave the EU in June 2016.There has been a growing debate in the UK on the possibility of holding a second referendum on a final Brexit deal – with the implication that if it was rejected, the country would remain in the EU.However, both the British government and the European Union remain committed to the negotiations, which passed the first phase in December and are due to move on in the next few months to considering a transition period and future relations.In his speech, Donald Tusk again called for “more clarity on the UK’s vision”.Several media outlets have reported on Tuesday that the EU has toughened its conditions for a post-Brexit transition deal, based on draft negotiating directives being prepared for the next stage of talks.The guidelines reportedly include demands for the UK to continue to accept the free movement of people until the end of 2020, as well as agree to special status for all EU citizens moving to the UK before that date. This would delay Britain's ability to introduce stricter immigration controls, which many Brexiteers want to see implemented immediately after Brexit in March 2019.
    练习 | What is London like at Christmas
    What is London like at Christmas?燕山大学 刘立军 宋葳 编写◆TRANSCRIPTLondon is an amazing place all year round, but at Christmas it is just unbelievably beautiful. The lights, the displays, the atmosphere, it really is breath-taking. It's this crazy, busy city for 11 months of the year, but when December comes along you can see all of the busy Londoners making time to take a step back from their routine and just appreciating what the city has to offer. One of the things I really enjoy doing at Christmas is buying amazing gifts for my loved ones. One thing I love doing is window shopping. I'll spend an afternoon looking at all the window displays without really buying anything, just trying to gather ideas and inspiration. London is so great for shopping. The most famous street is Oxford Street but I really like Kings Road as well. The luxury brands really compete with each other. Some of them are pretty impressive. Another lovely place to visit in London at Christmas time is Covent Garden, the centre of which used to be a fruit and vegetable market and then in the 1980s it changed to a shopping centre. There are lots of lovely little shops and you can also see some street performers if you go at the right time. I enjoy heading down south of the river and appreciating the views of the river Thames from one of London's many bridges. It really does make me feel very, very, very small in such a big city. One of my favourite lunch spots is one of the largest and oldest food markets in the whole of London - Borough Market. In 2014, it celebrated its thousandth birthday. If you do head over to Borough Market, don't forget to try some of the hot cider, perfect to warm you up on a cold day. So that was a little taste of my beautiful city at Christmas time, and I'd love to hear your recommendations.
