From the Director 项目主任总结

This week's Weekly Update includes many teachers discussing the final units of the academic year. Lesson planning gives way to a sense of urgency for teachers and students. Teachers begin looking to see which students are on upper level of the grade thresholds -- the students who almost make the next letter grade higher. Students become more anxious about their grades and quickly realize how soon the end of the year is.

本期周讯中,很多老师都提到了本学年最后一单元的教学。从教学计划中可以看到老师和学生们的紧迫感。老师们开始观察哪些学生处于年级门槛的较高水平——那些成绩等级分数更高的学生。学生们也意识到本学年马上就结束了,对自己的成绩也越来越关注。


Baishan AWS has reacted to this annual routine by making certain all assignments and assessments in SchoolPal are current. In doing so, teacher are also able to identify individual students who need a last push to get them into the next grade.

白珊·安妮高中也依照每年的惯例,确保校宝在线中学生的所有作业和评估都是最新的。通过这样做,老师还可以确定哪些学生需要最后的努力才能升入下一个年级。


I will be having individual conferences with students who are making poor grades or are in danger of not getting credit for a class. I ask that parents complement by asking their child which courses need the most attention.

接下来我也将与成绩比较低或有可能得不到学分的学生进行单独面谈。请家长询问孩子们有哪些课程需要他们更加努力和额外关注。


Lastly, and like I mentioned last week, I want to thank all of our teachers who are continually providing engaging lessons up until the last day of school.

最后,就像我上周提到的,我要感谢我们所有的老师们,本学年每一天他们都在努力提供最精彩的课程。


Please put on your calendar our Academic Achievement Award Ceremeny on June 25th. Please also put on your calendars the June 12th badminton tournament. 6月12日白珊·安妮高中的学生将参加国际学校羽毛球锦标赛。 6月25日我们将进行本学年的结业式和学术成就奖颁奖典礼。

We are heading into the final stretch of this semester and the students are working towards expanding their knowledge of the laws that govern the motion of objects. This week we examined inertia as well as instantaneous speed. The students are working on solving Physics related word problems and doing calculations using a variety of formulas. The students also have an independent project on motion which they are completing at home. The students seem eager to push themselves to work hard in order to get as much accomplished as we can in the time we have left. 

在物理课上,我们即将进入本学期的最后一个单元,学生们正在努力扩展他们对物体运动规律的认识。本周我们研究了惯性和瞬时速度。学生们正在努力解决与物理有关的英文术语问题,并使用各种公式进行计算。学生们还有一个关于运动的独立课题项目,需要他们在家里完成。学生们学习都很努力,以便在剩下的时间里取得尽可能好的成绩。

Students were back to work this week after their exciting trip to Dongying. In 9th grade, students finished the novel Never Let Me Go, and held their final Socratic seminar of the year. In 10th grade, students finished reading their individual novels, completed note-taking in their interactive notebooks, and prepared to create video presentations of literary analysis during the final weeks of the unit. In 11th grade, students created some graffiti linking the characters and themes in Twelfth Night to their own ideas before turning their attention to a research question about 16th Century England and the culture in which Shakespeare was writing. 

 学生们在经历了激动人心的东营之旅后,本周又重新回到了学习状态。本周在英语文学课上,九年级的学生们完成了对 小说《别让我走》的阅读和学习,并针对这部小说,进行了本学年最后一次苏格拉底式的研讨会。十年级的学生们本周 读完了各自选择的小说,完成了互动笔记本的笔记整理任务,并准备在接下来的几周,制作针对自己所选读的小说进行 文学分析的视频演示。11年级的学生们创作了一些涂鸦作品,将莎士比亚作品《第十二夜》中的人物和主题与自己的想法联系起来,接下来,学生们将进行一个关于莎士比亚创作时期16世纪英国所处文化的研究问题。



Chinese Studies with Mr. Zhan 中国文学


邹忌讽齐王纳谏.png


In social communication, most people are used to speaking directly, and in some cases, euphemistic and implicit expression will have better effect. This week, the ninth grade students studied Zou Ji satirizes the king of Qi and accepts remonstrance. In this story, Zou Ji is not complacent in the face of praise from his family and flattery from his guests. Instead, he makes rational thinking and realizes the truth of "governing the country" from "governing the family", and then persuades king Qi Wei to accept the advice tactfully and implicitly. From this story, students feel the amazing effect of analogy. In addition, according to their own preferences, students rewrite the classical Chinese into diary or script, which helps to cultivate students' creative expression ability.

在社会交往中,一般人习惯于直截了当的说话,而在某些情况下,委婉含蓄的表达会有更好的效果。本周,9年级学生学习了《邹忌讽齐王纳谏》。在这个故事中,邹忌面对家人的赞美和客人的奉承,没有沾沾自喜,而是做了理性的思考,从“治家”中悟出“治国”的道理,然后委婉含蓄地说服了齐威王纳谏。从这个故事中,学生们感受到了“类比”这种说话方式的惊人效果。另外,学生们根据自己的喜好,把这篇文言文改写成日记体或剧本,这有助于培养学生们创意表达的能力。

This week Grade 10 studied the brilliant scientific and technological achievements of ancient China, including astronomy, medicine, mathematics, agriculture and other different fields. While learning about ancient scientific and technological achievements and splendid civilization, the students also increased their national pride and interest in exploring technology. Next, we will study and discuss the achievements made in calligraphy, music, opera and other fields.

本周,10年级学习了中国古代创造的辉煌科技成就,包括天文学,医学,数学,农学等不同的领域。同学们在了解古代科技成就和灿烂文明的同时,也增加了民族自豪感和科技探索的兴趣。接下来,我们还会对书法,音乐,戏曲艺术等其他领域取得的成就进行学习和探讨。



The students of grade 11 have revised and improved their social research essay many times and successfully completed them! They have challenged themselves and made new breakthroughs and improvements in their writing ability and academic research. While preparing for the AP exam, we began to review what we had learned in this semester to make full preparations for the final exam.

11年级的同学们多次修改和完善,成功地完成了他们的社会实事调查学术报告!他们挑战了自我,在写作能力和学术研究方面都取得了新的突破和提升。在准备AP考试的同时,我们开始着手复习本学期所学的知识,为期末考试做充分的准备。

This week, G10 students finished their research on a certain American university and completed the poster. In class, they were required to update their SCOIR by following 3-5 universities. Before adding to list, students need to ensure that those candidate schools are accessible for them. Therefore, they logged onto the official websites and checked the requirements to make their list reasonable. In this process, students got more familiar with the layout of the websites and knew how to effectively got the information they needed. For G11, they are still working hard to prepare their AP exams which will be held next week. Best wishes to them!

本周,10年级学生完成了对美国一所特定大学的研究并完成了海报。在课堂上,要求他们通过添加并关注3-5所美国大学来更新SCOIR。在加入名单之前,学生需要确保这些候选学校对他们来说是合适的。因此,他们登录学校官方网站,查看要求,使他们的名单合理化。在这个过程中,学生们更加熟悉了网站的布局,知道如何有效地获取所需的信息。对于11年级,他们仍在努力准备下周举行的AP考试。向他们致以最美好的祝愿!


In TOEFL classes, the overall performance of both G9&10 is still improving! They interacted in class, answered questions actively, corrected their own mistakes with a good attitude. In the listening section, lectures are still a big challenge for them due to the lecture length, vocabulary, listening ability, concentration, note taking skill. etc. The good news is that most students are trying. Keep it!

在托福课程中,9年级和10年级的整体表现仍在提高!他们在课堂上互动,积极回答问题,以良好的态度改正自己的错误。在听力部分,由于篇幅、词汇量、听力、注意力、笔记技巧等方面的原因,讲座对他们来说仍然是一个很大的挑战。好在大多数学生都在努力。继续保持!

We shifted our focus in World Geography from voluntary migration to the study of refugees, who are forced to flee their homes by violence or war. We’ve grounded this study in the world’s response to refugees during and after WWII, but we’ll spend more time looking at more recent examples, like the waves of refugees who’ve fled Syria and the Sudan. 本周在世界地理课上,我们把学习重点从主动移民转移到研究难民的问题上,他们因暴力或战争而被迫逃离家园。我们把这项研究的基础放在二战期间和战后世界对难民的反应上,但我们会花更多的时间来研究近期的一些案列,比如逃离叙利亚和苏丹的难民潮。


Our Grade 10/11 historians are finishing up our study of the end of WWII with two topics that are very difficult to grapple with, but so important to understand clearly: The Holocaust, and the US decision to drop two atomic bombs in Japan. At the end of this week, we’ll shift gears, because after the war, the Allied relationship between the US and Soviet Union didn’t stay warm for long. In fact, things got so chilly, it became a real Cold War. 本周十年级和十一年级的历史学家们正在完成对二战的研究,有两个主题很难理解,但很重要,学生们必须清楚地理解:对犹太人的大屠杀和美国决定在日本投两颗原子弹。本周末我们将学习重点进行了调整,因为战后,美苏同盟关系并没有持续多久。事实上,他们之间的关系如此紧张,变成了一场真正的冷战。


This is the AP Geographers’ last week of preparation before the exam. They’ve been working hard on this material all year, and now we’re doing a systematic review of all seven units, filling in gaps and refreshing the concepts we studied early in the year. After Friday, their most important task will be to shift their sleep schedule later, so when they take their AP exams from midnight to 3am next week, they’ll be alert and focused, with plenty of energy to finish these demanding exams. I’ve never had to ask parents this before, but we’ll need your help in encouraging the 11s to stay up til 3am every night – having fun and playing videos; whatever keeps them alert and engaged – and then sleeping in as late as possible, to get a solid 8-9+ hours of sleep every night. At this point, nothing will help their test performance more than a few days of very good sleep, and the ability to stay alert and awake after midnight – so your help with this will be invaluable!  

本周是AP人文地理课学生们考前备考的最后一周。学生们这一整个学年都在努力学习这些材料,现在我们对这7个单元都做了系统的复习,填补了空白,刷新了学年初学生们学习的一些概念。本周五之后,学生们最重要的任务是调整睡眠时间,因为按照AP统一的考试时间,当他们从午夜到次日凌晨3点参加AP考试时,他们必须要保持清醒和专注,有足够的精力才能完成这些要求很高的考试。我之前没有跟家长提过这个问题,但我们需要您的帮助,近期请鼓励十一年级的孩子们每晚熬夜到凌晨3点——让他们玩得开心,看看视频;无论用什么方式让他们保持清醒和专注,然后之后尽可能快地入睡,每天至少获得一个稳定的8-9小时以上的睡眠。目前这种情况,没有什么比几天良好的睡眠和午夜后保持警觉和清醒的能力更能帮助他们顺利通过考试了——因此您的帮助将是无价的!



Mathematics with Mr. Guo 数学


Grade 10 students learned to graph Sine and Cosine functions both manually and using technology. They tried to identify amplitude, frequency and period from the functions and the graphs. We also discussed the application of periodic functions in our life.

十年级的学生学习了手工和计算器绘制正弦和余弦函数的方法。他们试图从函数表达式和图表中识别振幅、频率和周期。我们还讨论了周期函数在我们生活中的应用。


Grade 11 students continued their unit on Vectors. We reviewed the magnitude, direction, and component form of a vector. Then we looked at how to perform vector addition and scalar multiplication and used the graphical meaning of vector addition to solve real-world problems.

11年级的学生继续他们的向量单元的学习。我们回顾了向量的大小、方向和分量形式,然后研究了如何执行向量加法和标量乘法,并使用向量加法的图形含义来解决实际问题。


Grade 9 students learned to use radian measure to compute arc length and area of a sector. They tried to calculate the linear and angular velocities of objects and understand the relationship between them. Then they solved applied problems involving arc length and rotation.

九年级的学生学会了用弧度来计算扇形的弧长和面积。他们试图计算物体的线性速度和角速度,并了解它们之间的关系。然后他们解决了包含弧长和旋转的实际应用问题。

This is a great time to be an Art teacher and Art student! 这是作为一名艺术教师和艺术学生非常有成就感的时刻!


For most of the year, Art teachers teach the fundamentals and how to apply them with different strategies and techniques. The students build their skills and explore various concepts and strategies. Now, as the last unit of the year, the students are applying all of their knowledge to their own, personal expressions.

在这一学年的大部分时间里,美术老师都在教授基础知识,以及如何运用不同的绘画策略和技巧。学生们逐渐学习技能,探索各种绘画概念和策略。现在,作为本学年的最后一个单元,学生们正在把他们所有学到的知识运用到自己的个人作品中。


Student in grades 9 - 11 can be seen immediately getting their artwork and materials as soon as they enter, seemingly eager to get started.

9-11年级的学生们已经拿到了他们创作作品所需的材料,学生们已经迫不及待地开始创作了。


What's more, students are separating themselves based on their own motivations. Green Tie Katherine has excelled these past few weeks and is now receiving customized lessons. Red Tie Max is continuing to build his illustration portfolio. Most noticeably, however, is Red Tie Zoey who is working on a large stretched canvas. 

更重要的是,学生们正根据各自不同的创作动机,独立地进行创作。绿带Katherine在过去几周中表现出色,现在正在接受老师提供的单独有针对性的课程。红带Max正在继续创作他的插图组合。最引人注目的是红带Zoey,她正在一幅大的画布上进行创作。


Stay tuned for their results. The students' work will be on display in the school art gallery during Arts Week June 14 - 17. 学生们的作品将于6月14日至17日艺术周期间在学校美术馆展出,请继续关注学生们的创作进程。
