This week was all about literacy in for the 9th and 10th grades. Activities included the study Rabindranath Tagore's Stray Birds poems, followed by a walk around the campus to get inspired to write some nature poetry, and a "Text Tasting" when students searched for juicy and delicious sentences in famous fiction. While 11th grade jumped into the beginning of Unit 4 with both feet, taking on Shakespeare's Twelfth Night, they also joined their younger peers in our "Reading Buddies" program with Baishan kindergarten classes! Next week, all ELA classes will be into the final unit of this academic year. Time is going so fast! 

本周九年级和十年级的学生参与了文学周的一系列活动。这些活动包括学习印度诗人泰戈尔的《飞鸟集》,然后徜徉在美丽的校园里,获得创作一些自然诗的灵感,以及学生们在著名小说中寻找有趣而美味的句子的“文本品尝”。11年级的孩子们快速跳入第四单元的学习,在学习莎士比亚的《第十二夜》的同时,也加入了我们和白珊幼儿园一起举办的“读书伙伴”活动!下周开始,所有英语语言文学的学生都将进入本学年的最后一个单元。时间过得真快!

In last week's update, we mentioned that the students completed their second of two Oxford language assessment. It is very appropriate during Literacy Week that we can celebrate the overall major improvement scores. Eight of our students improved and moved into a higher classification level. Our three highest point gains were +19, +18, and +14. 

在上周的周讯中,我们提到学生们完成了本学年第二次牛津英语语言评估测试。在文学周期间,我们非常高兴看到学生们的整体进步。有八名学生进步很大,成功进入到下一个语言等级水平。成绩进步最快的三个分数分别是+19、+18和+14。

In the vast history of Chinese literature, Tao Yuanming, as the first writer to write on the theme of pastoral scenery and pastoral life, created a new literary school -- Pastoral Poetry School. His poems are based on natural landscape and pastoral life, with plain and natural language, giving people a fresh and pure feeling. This week, the G10th students studied Tao Yuanming's poems, explored the characteristics of pastoral poetry, and felt the wonderful artistic conception and unique charm of pastoral poetry.

在浩瀚的中国文学历史长河中,陶渊明作为第一个以田园景色和田园生活为题材进行创作的文学家,他开创了一个怡情山水、恬淡雅致的新文学流派——田园诗派。他的诗取材于自然山水和田园生活,语言平淡而自然,给人一种清新、淳美的感觉。本周10年级同学们学习了陶渊明的作品,一起探究田园诗的特点并感受了田园诗美妙的意境和独特的魅力。


This week, grade 11 students continue to focus on the study of writing skills and the improvement of their writing ability, such as how to make the plot more tortuous and moving, how to increase literary talent and expressiveness, and how to use expressive and rhetorical devices to make the article more exciting. In addition to writing, we also encourage students to read more. In this vigorous spring, we should blend in nature, go into books, feel the fun of reading, and harvest the richness and satisfaction of the soul.

本周11年级的同学们继续专注于写作技巧的学习和能力的提升,例如如何让故事情节更曲折动人,如何增加文采和表现力,运用表现手法和修辞手法来让文章更精彩。除了写作,我们也鼓励同学们更多地去阅读,在这生机盎然的春天,融进自然,走进书本,感受读书的乐趣,收获心灵的丰盈和满足。

This week, I printed out the authentic materials for certain tests, including Canadian Chemistry Contest, Junior Science Olympiad of Canada, etc. Students could make a final decision after testing their academic level. Also, it’s an honor that we successfully invited a professor who once worked in the Marshal Business School, University of Southern California. Professor John used study cases and examples, vividly introducing certain key concepts in the business world. He stressed the importance of independent study capability and encouraged students to explore their own interest based on their own research. Students were fully engaged and even some parents were taking notes. AWS will provide more such opportunities for our students in the course of their college application.

本周,我打印了一些测试的真题材料,包括加拿大化学竞赛、加拿大初级科学奥林匹克竞赛等。学生们可以在测试他们的学术水平后做出最终决定。另外,很荣幸我们成功邀请了一位曾在南加州大学马歇尔商学院工作的教授。约翰教授运用研究案例和例子,生动地介绍了商界的某些关键概念。他强调自主学习能力的重要性,鼓励学生在自己研究的基础上发掘自己的兴趣。学生们全神贯注,甚至有些家长也在做笔记。AWS将在学生申请大学的过程中为他们提供更多这样的机会。

Our Grade 10/11 Historians are finishing up their study of WWI this week. After vowing to stay neutral for so long, why did the US finally decide to enter the war? How did the war end? And how did the terms of the peace treaty that ended WWI, the Treaty of Versailles, actually plant the seeds for another world war?   

本周10/11年级的历史学家们完成了对一战的研究。在宣称要保持中立这么久之后,美国为什么最终决定参战?战争是怎么结束的?而结束一战的和平条约《凡尔赛条约》的条款究竟是如何为另一场世界大战埋下种子的?
