Oh, maphew, that's a great example.(???幻听 igzannt) (这句话有两个频段)





Listen to part of conversation between a student and his professor.

Hi, maphew Mathew I'm glad you can come in today. You've abserving Mr. Grable's third grade class for your approaches to education paper, right?

Um..Hmmmm, Yes, I go over to the Johnson iwamentry Elementary School. You know,  to watch Mr. Grable teach the children in class. It's been amazing. I mean, I just learning so much from just watching him. I'm so glad the class obeservation classroom observations are a requirement for the education program. I mean, it's like the best thing ever to prepare you to be a good teacher.

??? Well, I'm glad go I to see you feel that way ??? Mathew. You know, that's the goal. So I've been reading over your observation notes, and I'm quite intereted in what's going on in particular with the astronomy unit he's being been teaching.

The astronomy unit?

It seems that Mr. Grable has mastered the introdiceponary interdisciplinary approaching the approach to teaching that we've been talken talking about in class.

Oh, OK. Yeah, so like when he is was teaching astronomy, he didn't just teach them the names of the planets, he used it as a way to teach mathology mythology

Really, so how to did you he do that?

Well, some of the students could already name our the planets, but they didn't know that the names has had a any meaning, the storyies behind them.

So, he...

He introduced greek and roman mathology mythology as a way of explaining. Like, you know, how like dupators Jupiter's the biggest planet, right? And how dupators Jupiter was the name of king of the gods of the roman mathology in Roman mythology, right? So since dupators Jupiter the planet is the largest planet in our solar system, it's like the king of the planets, like the dupators Jupiter was the king of all the gods.

Oh, maphew, that's a great example.(???幻听 igzannt)

Yeah, and each student shoose a planet and research then did research on it to write a report and make a presentation. They went to the library to do the research, then they made presentations about the planet they chose.

So, in one science unit, in which the focus was astromomy, the students also learned about the literature of greek and roman mathology mythology, used to research skills in the library, wrote a report and practiced their own oral presentation skills.

Exactly, he uses used this one topic to teach third gradors third-graders all that stuff. How to use the books in the library, to write reports, and even how to speak to in public. Plus, they had a great time doing it.

You know, mathew, this is just what we've been talken talking about in our class. I'm sure everyone could can learn something from your experiences. You know, mathew, I'd laugh love for you to talk about the astronomy unit in class on Wednesday.

Really, um....Hmmmm...cause, I don't really think I'll have any time to write my paper by then.

Oh, you won't need write anything new just yet. For wednesday, use your class observation notes, and it explain the things we've disscussed today.

OK, that's sounds alright all right.
