From the Director 项目主任总结


This is the time of year when schools make special accommodations for the students' unique educational needs. Baishan AWS is no different. These accommodations are taking the form of unique schedules for our Red Tie Advanced Placement students who are preparing for their external exams. AP Chemistry starts next week and, as you'll read in Ms. Jia's article, the students have been provided with extra time for intense studying. 

每年这个时候,学校都会为学生的特殊教育需求做一些调整。白珊·安妮高中也不例外。为了配合我们红带学生的AP考试,白珊·安妮高中也为相关的学生做了一些调整。AP化学考试下周开始,正如您在佳佳老师的文章中看到的那样,学生们正在利用额外的时间进行紧张的学习。


Baishan AWS is also responding to warmer temperatures and looser travel restrictions within the province by emphasizing field trips and off-campus activities. With the help of Ms. Du, Mr. Kytle was able to take the Blue and Green Ties to the Hisense Science Museum. Make sure to read his article below and view the many photos. Travel and ticket costs were covered by the school.

随着天气转暖和旅行政策的放宽,白珊·安妮高中也将在校外和省内开展一些实地考察的学习活动 。在杜老师的帮助下,本周Mr. Kytle 老师带领蓝带和绿带的学生到海信探索中心进行了实地考察学习。请阅读下面的文章,并查看活动的一些照片。本次活动的费用由学校承担。


Plans are also being made for other educational opportunities in the near future. Please look for more on this very soon. 

此外,我们正在计划为学生提供更多实地学习的教育机会。我们将尽快发送更多的相关信息。

This week we continued our new Unit on Motion in Physics. The students examined the route Magellan took as his crew circumnavigated the globe. We examined the historical data from the time period and we discussed the validity and accuracy of the data. Along with these questions we also discussed what other data we needed in order to enhance the credibility of our calculations regarding the distance traveled and speed. 

本周在物理课上,我们继续学习了力和运动这一单元。学生们研究了麦哲伦在环球航行时所走的路线,分析了这段时期的历史数据,并讨论了数据的有效性和准确性。除了这些问题之外,我们还讨论了我们还需要哪些其他数据来增强我们关于行驶距离和速度的计算的可信度。


Thursday, we went on our first Physics Field Trip! The students got a chance to go to the best Science Museum in Qingdao, the Hisense Science Exhibit. The Museum is broken up into four different floors with each floor focused around a specific theme. The students got a chance to go a lot of hands on experiments and explore a wide-variety of scientific concepts and ideas. We really had an amazing time! I have posted a lot of photos below to help bring the trip to light! I want to thank Helen and Mr. Brandt for their help in making this trip possible. The students really had a great time and also did an amazing job of properly representing our school. A Great Experience All Around! 

本周四,我们进行了第一次物理实地考察!学生们有机会参观了青岛最好的科学博物馆——海信探索中心。探索中心分为四层,每层都围绕一个特定的主题。学生们有机会尝试了大量的实验,探索了各种各样的科学概念和想法。学生们真的收获很多!请观看所附照片,了解学生们在这次学习活动中的经历!非常感谢Mr. Brant和杜老师的帮助,使这次学习活动成为可能。 学生们代表我们的学校表现很棒,这是一次非常好的学习活动!


On Friday, the students met Mr. Guan to help them better improve their designs for our upcoming egg drop. We had the chance to ask questions and see what the laser cutter could do up close. They also discussed the materials we are going to use for this event as well. 

本周五,学生们与Mr. Guan老师会面,帮助他们更好地改进了即将进行的鸡蛋降落实验的设计。学生们有机会提出问题,近距离观看激光切割机的操作和工作原理。学生们也讨论了我们将用于本次实验活动的材料。

Spring is finally here and students are hard at work studying fiction in the last unit of the year. The Blue Ties are digging in to Never Let Me Go by Kazuo Ishiguro. A mystery is unraveling but so far all we know is that the teachers are hiding something. The Green Ties are reading individual novels so that they can conduct and present a literary analysis that showcases all that they have learned about literature in the last two years. And, in the Red Ties are continuing their study of Twelfth Night by William Shakespeare, focusing this week on how Shakespeare used language so artfully, and how his choices as a playwright are still relevant today! 

春天终于来了,学生们在本学年的最后一个单元努力学习小说。九年级蓝带的学生们正在研究石黑一雄的《永远不要让我离开》。小说中的谜团正在慢慢解开,但到目前为止,学生们所读到的是书中老师们在隐瞒什么。绿带学生正在阅读他们自己选择的小说,之后他们要研究并呈现一个文学分析,展示他们在过去两年里所学的所有文学知识。此外,红带的学生继续学习威廉·莎士比亚的《第十二夜》,学生们本周将重点放在莎士比亚如何巧妙地运用语言,以及他作为剧作家的选择如何与今天仍然相关!

"The Analects of Confucius" said: "make in four directions, do not insult your life, can be described as a scholar." In China's long history, there are many diplomatic envoys shining with brilliance. With their wisdom and courage, they have excellently completed their mission and safeguarded the interests and dignity of the country to the greatest extent. This week, students in Grade 9 learned "Tang Ju fulfils his mission" and met Tang Ju, an outstanding diplomat in Chinese history. First, the students learned about the three styles of Chinese history books: guobie style, chronicle style and biography style. Then the students read the text and perform the reading in different roles. Through this form, students' interest and ability in studying classical Chinese are improved. Next week, students will explore characters and speaking skills.《论语》中说:“使于四方,不辱君命,可谓士矣。”在中国悠久的历史中,有许多外交使者闪耀着光芒,他们以自己的智慧和勇敢出色地完成了自己肩负的使命,最大限度地维护了国家的利益和尊严。本周,9年级的学生学习了《唐雎不辱使命》,结识了中国历史上一位杰出的外交家——唐雎。首先学生们了解了中国史书的三种体例,分别是:国别体、编年体和纪传体。然后学生们研读课文,分角色表演朗读。通过这种形式,提高了学生研读文言文的兴趣和能力。下周,学生们将对人物形象和说话技巧展开赏析探究。

With the AP exams approaching, Grade 11's writing unit is coming to an end. This week we studied the content of arguing, including three main points, three structures, and four main arguing methods. Students apply argumentative writing method to their "social hot spot analysis report", which is a great challenge and improvement to their academic ability and writing ability.

In World Geography, we watched a film called “Living on One Dollar a Day,” created by college students worried about global poverty. After discussing microloans, the 9th graders explored the Kiva website and decided use Ms. B’s next Kiva loan to enable a woman in the Philippines to build a clean and safe toilet, a thoughtful follow-up on our unit on water and sanitation last semester. 

本周在世界地理课上,我们观看了一部名为《每天靠一美元生活》的电影,这部电影是由关注全球贫困的大学生创作的。在讨论了小额贷款之后,九年级的学生浏览了Kiva网站,决定利用Mr.B女士的下一笔Kiva贷款,帮助一名菲律宾的妇女建造一个干净安全的厕所,这是我们针对上学期关于水和卫生单元后续的强化学习活动。 


Our Grade 10/11 historians spent most of this week reviewing, studying for, and finishing their unit test on the Industrial Revolution and WWI, with a focus on analyzing a historical photo and using that as the basis for an analytical essay. Then: Did the Treaty of Versailles plant the seeds of WWII? 

本周10/11年级的历史学家们利用大部分时间复习、学习和完成了关于工业革命和第一次世界大战的单元测试,重点分析了一张历史照片,并以此作为分析文章的基础。那么:凡尔赛条约是否为二战埋下了隐患?


Our AP geographers are studying urban patterns and processes. How well does Christaller’s central place theory explain where cities are located and how big they grow? And do the eight (yes, 8!) urban models we’re studying help us explain urban land use patterns in various parts of the world?  

本周AP人文地理学家们研究了城市模式和形成过程。克里斯塔勒的中心位置论是如何解释城市的位置和发展规模的?做八个我们正在研究的城市模型(是的,8个)能帮助我们解释世界各地的城市土地利用模式吗?




Mathematics with Mr. Guo 数学课


This week, Grade 10 reviewed trigonometry in the right triangle and then expanded their knowledge into any triangle. They derived the sine rule, cosine rule and area of a triangle formula, then applied these rules in solving problems. They worked out the values of sine, cosine and tangent ratio of angles in all four quadrants using unit circle and reference angle. They worked really well this week.

本周,10年级复习了直角三角形中的三角学,然后将他们的知识扩展到任意三角形。他们推导了正弦定理、余弦定理和三角形的面积公式,然后将这些定理应用于解决问题。他们用单位圆和参考角计算出四个象限的正弦、余弦和角正切比值。同学们都投入到了学习当中,值得表扬。

Grade 9 students reviewed the unit of Statistics and completed a topic test on Thursday. We'll start a new unit next week.

九年级的学生复习了统计单元,并在周四完成了一个专题测试,下周我们将进行新一个单元的学习。

All students are building momentum with their individual projects. The Painting students have received their stretched canvases and drawing out their beginning designs in pencil.

本周所有的学生都在积极准备自己的创作项目。绘画课的学生们收到了各自需要的画布,并用铅笔画出了最初的设计。


The Drawing students are continually exploring combinations of different drawing materials that help them realize their designs and self-selected expressions. They will be using mostly paper.

绿带学生Henry正在探索材料的极限,他将油彩和蜡在锅里加热融化,以达到预期的效果。此外,Henry也在探索如何利用慢动作视频来捕捉最精确的时刻。


Meanwhile, Green Tie Katherine has taken the initiative to combine her sewing techniques with her painting. This is illustrated in the photo. These types of individual, high-risk exploration is essential to creativity and is exactly what students at this level need to develop divergent thinking skills. 

同时,绿带学生Katherine主动将自己的缝纫技术与绘画结合起来。请参考图片。这些个人的,独特的,充满冒险精神的探索是必不可少的创造力,也正是这个层次的学生需要不断发展的发散思维技能。
