Thinking out of the box, and out of the classroom

HIGH school seniors aiming for majors in literature, social science,
history or other liberal arts disciplines will find themselves squeezed
for opportunity when they take the college entrance exam next month.Many
local universities have been reducing the enrollment of humanities
students. The proportion of liberal arts slots available at Shanghai’s
top 23 universities this year has dropped 2.5 percentage points from
2013, according to data Shanghai Daily compiled from the Shanghai
College Enrollment Catalog released by the Shanghai Educational
Examinations Authority.“By reducing intake, universities are determining
students’ futures,” said Ye Hong, deputy director of admissions and
graduate employment services at Shanghai University. “It would be a big
waste of talent and educational resources if graduates cannot find
jobs.”The shift in educational focus to science, technology and
engineering from the humanities has been caused both by government
development policies and by a job market hungry for specialized
technical skills.As of March, only about 10 percent of Shanghai college
seniors majoring in literature and law had found jobs, decided to study
abroad or were admitted to graduate programs. The rate for seniors in
all majors was 20 percent.Alarmed over the poor employment prospects for
non-science graduates, the Shanghai Education Commission has asked local
universities and colleges to reduce the intake of students in some
majors. The hit list included marketing, sociology and social work.High
school students who want good jobs when they graduate from university
are certainly poring over enrollment catalogs to determine where their
best shots lie. The catalogs list enrollment quotas for different
majors.Shanghai University’s catalog said it plans to recruit 212
humanities students via the college entrance exam this year, accounting
for only 15.3 percent of the total enrollment. That’s down 6 percentage
points from last year.Shanghai University of Finance and Economics also
reduced the number of humanities students it will accept this year to 79
from 102 last year, while it increased enrollment of science students
from 307 to 316.The trend worries high school seniors like Huang Wenhui,
a student at Shanghai No. 8 High School, who will sit the college
entrance exam early in June.She chose history over science in her high
school elective courses, and now is wondering if she made a bad
choice.“It’s too late to switch to another subject,” said Huang, 17, who
admitted she struggled with math.“Science is more about logic and
calculation, while humanities rely on memory and critical thinking,
which I think is more suitable for girls. I’ve also heard that
humanities courses are much easier than science.”Competition getting
fiercerThe thought of getting a college degree without much effort
resulted in a large increase in numbers of high school students choosing
humanities in the past.From 2010 to 2013, humanities students as a
proportion of entrance exam test-takers rose to 46.6 percent from 32.8
percent. In the same period, enrollment of humanities students accounted
for about 20 percent to 30 percent of total recruitment at all Shanghai
universities.What the figures show is that competition for college
places in non-science disciplines is getting fiercer.In the past three
years, humanities students required higher scores than their science
peers to gain admission to top Shanghai universities. Last year for
example, the threshold for admission to humanities students was an exam
score of 448, while for science students it was 405. That was a record
gap.“If I could do it all over again, I would consider choosing physics
over history,” said Fu Yixue, a student at Jianping High School, who is
worrying that she may have trouble getting into the university of her
choice.The focus on science education is even affecting popular courses
such as business administration and economics. Some universities now
want students in those fields to show stronger science and math scores
on their entrance exams.Shanghai University for example has closed its
economics and business management majors to any high school student who
chose a humanities stream of learning over science.“We found humanities
students with high exam scores often lagging science students with just
average scores in terms of math proficiency,” said Ye. “We think
humanities students are not suitable for economics and management majors
that require math skills.”The college entrance exam structure greatly
influences what subjects students choose to study in high school.Less
onerousThe math portion of the exam given to humanities students is less
onerous than the one given to science students. That encourages some
students who aren’t interested in math to shy away from the subject in
high school.From the start of their second year in high school, students
are required to choose one of three science courses or one of three
non-science courses as electives. In the next two years leading up to
the college entrance exam, the students generally stay in the tracks
they have chosen.Some college admission officers think the division
between science and non-science students in high schools should be
abolished. Education should be more interdisciplinary, said Ye.“Students
will be better educated if they are allowed more flexible choices and
not pigeon-holed,” she said.The Ministry of Education is drafting a new
college entrance exam and admissions system that may lead to the
abolishment of the divisions, according to education insiders.But for
many parents, the focus of education should be jobs, jobs, jobs.“Parents
should respect their children’s choices,” said Qin Jue, whose daughter
is at high school. “And the education system should meet the needs of
society and the marketplace.”

TESOL age categories are age 1-17 years oldes, they are Early childhood
development(age1-5),Elemetary(age6-9),Junior High age(10-13),High school
age(14-17). Each of the language development stages have different
characteristics, as well as different learners have different
intelligence types, so that we need creative the class different
accordingly. Otherwise all of our learners are youngers that the
concentration and attention spans are short, varity is a must - varity
of activity, variety of pace, varity of organisation, variety of voice.

 As to the elementary children at this age are developing skills,
including Gross motor skills, fine motor skills, recognition skills,
social skills, so we teach them not only speak words, but also most
activities , we will need to have plenty of objects and pictures to work
with, and to make full use of the school and our surroundings. Using the
mothed of Total physical Response to teach the kids vocabulary and
sentence forms to help them easer to learn. Guiding the learner use the
words to make sentences o make contextual cut, also we can make
scaffolding instraction to make sentences to come upto help kids
comprehension. Make communicate lessons to practice.

His teacher Ma Yujie said it was a good
practice for children to experience a different, more vivid learning and
teaching environment. It had been a day they would remember fora very
long time.

TESOL acronym is Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages.
Through 10 clases of studying ,  we acknowledged that the diferente ages
of children have different characteristics and different types of
intelligence, and we learned some methods how to teach them accordingly.
Also we studied how to manage the class and atmosphere, and Tesol told
us which way is better for teaching the different ages pupils for
listening , reading, writing and speaking.

In addtion all aboves, we should concern the learners those who have
different types of intelligence when we build the class, also we need to
know which intelligences you have, so that we can use the great way to
teach to the preferred learning styles and cultural differences in the
classroom. Eight types of intelligence as following:

High school stages children they have math,science and social studies
are emphasized, at this stage, they start to appreciate and celebrate
cultural individul difference. Talking about your real life expriences
for the kids. Make talk activities , such as give a topic to discuss in
the class.

“Spatial smart” students are suitable for playing Pictionary game.
Teacher group students into two teams and show oneteam member a
flashcard. That member then draws the flashcard picture on theboard. The
student who calls first gets a point.

Regarding the Junior children at this age start to communicate in a
clear stream of consciousness that mean they worry about not being liked
by their peers, they start to do things to get attention etc, we should
let the pupils talk to themselves.Make up rhymes, sing songs, tell
stories, reading aloud, silent reading , building up confidence. Play
with the language let them talk nonsense. Guiding written activivties,
such as fill-in exercises, Dictation. Free writing activities,
Pre-writing activities.etc.

 Teaching the toddlers ,telegraphic speech is emerging at this point. We
teach them use of short words and phrases that omit unnecessary
modifiers and articles in order to convey general meanings, as far as
this stage babies the best way of teaching language is prepared them
some appropriate toys and paints for playing and drawing, listen story,
