真好,春天来了,西外校园里的花都开得很好。我们不在校园,花依旧如期而放。就像我们不在教室,课依旧正常进行。3月2日到现在,线上授课已经进行三周,各学科教学进入常态。在这之中,外教课程尤其是体育、美术类课程更是令我们惊喜。我们不妨看看Ryan(PE)和Amelia(Art)这两位外教的线上课程是如何开展的。

线上授课给PE教学带来了很大的困难。但这并不能降低Ryan和他的学生们通过网络沟通、见面的热情。每周几次的“线上会面”成了师生之间交换感悟和思考的重要契机。对六年级的小朋友来说,Ryan是一位严肃中透着调皮和幽默的老师。他会关心到每一位学生每一堂课的表现和状态,并及时反馈给班主任,并和班主任沟通如何帮助这个孩子。我相信学生对他的喜爱理所当然,爱着学生的老师,必定也会被学生爱着。

 

新冠病毒给全世界都带来了挑战,也给我们带来了很多思考。越是宅在家的日子,越要注意作息规律和锻炼。这成为了Ryan教学的重点,他为学生制作了一份健康指南。

 

With the world facing a new challenge in the form of a global pandemic: Covid-19. Countries, communities, schools, families and people around the world are having to change their lives and lifestyles for the betterment of each other and ourselves. As you know, many schools and companies have extended their time off in order to keep young students such as yourself and those around us safe and healthy. It is now more important than ever to reflect on ourselves and our daily habits. Are we doing everything we possibly can to be as healthy and productive as possible in this trying time? Are we truly taking care of ourselves to the best of our ability? If you think the answer to either one of these questions is “no”, don’t worry. We have put together a simple guide for you to follow in order to ensure you are staying healthy and happy while we are confined to our homes during Covid-19.

 

外教Ryan

 

When looking at our overall health, there are many things that we need to consider. Being healthy does not just mean we are able to run a 6-minute mile. Mental health is arguably a far more crucial factor as it is our mind that controls our body. If we can master our minds, we can truly achieve anything. There are 6 areas that we should focus on when trying to maximize our mental health. If we can effectively create a balance of each of these areas, there is no challenge in the world that can stop us. As young students several of these areas should be filled by those around you, your loved ones and family provide for you that which you cannot provide for yourself.

 

在Ryan看来,疫情期间,身体健康很重要,心理健康更需要特别关注。在教育方面,我们往往会忽略对孩子的心理辅导和正确引导。学生精力和能力有限,他认为学生应该把注意力集中在他们认为可以直接控制的领域,并提出了很多中肯的建议。

 

 

Focus on the areas in which you feel you have direct control. Establish a daily routine that includes as many of these areas as possible. Some of these should remain constant, take space for example. We should keep our room clean so that it is a healthy living environment, we should keep our workspace organized so that we are not distracted while we study, our parents will ensure that our home remains safe and stable. Other areas are important, but can be done less often, take spiritual for example. Having time alone is good so that you can reflect on yourself and your thoughts, meditation is also an effective method for doing this. Are you less healthy if you do not meditate every day? Of course not! But it is something you should consider doing once in a while. Similarly, building connections with new people or going out in nature, these are obvious things that we should do, but it will not harm us if it is not worked into our daily routine.

 

 

1、建立一个包括尽可能多的这些领域的日常习惯。其中一些应该保持不变。

2、以空间为例,我们应该保持我们的房间干净,让它成为一个健康的生活环境;

3、我们应该保持我们的工作空间井然有序,这样我们在学习的时候就不会分心;

4、以心灵为例,独处是很好的,这样你就可以反思自己和自己的想法。冥想也是一种有效的方法;

5、同样,与新朋友建立联系或走进大自然。

 

Ryan为学生设计了一个可以帮助学生建立心理健康日常计划的图表。“创造你自己的生活计划,让它大而漂亮,把它挂在你卧室的墙上,这样你每天进出都能看到。当你完成每一项后,立即勾画。”

 

 

Of course, a big factor when it comes to our health and well-being is how physically active we are, the Center for Disease Control in the United States recommends that children and adolescents aging from 6 to 17 years do 60 minutes or more of moderate-to-vigorous physical activity daily. Regular physical activity can help children and adolescents improve cardiorespiratory fitness, build strong bones and muscles, control weight, reduce symptoms of anxiety and depression, and reduce the risk of illness. Research also suggests that students who are physically active tend to have better grades, school attendance, cognitive performance (e.g., memory), and classroom behaviors (e.g., on-task behavior). Furthermore, higher physical activity and physical fitness levels are associated with improved cognitive performance (e.g., concentration, memory) among students.

 

That being said, here are some simple exercise routines you can do right in your own bedroom, with no equipment. Just:

 

1、Clear some space on your floor

2、Use a yoga mat or towel for padding

4、Make sure you have plenty of water nearby

5、Make sure you stretch to warm up first, and cool down afterwards. (follow the yoga routine as a method of stretch and cooling down)

 

当然,体育老师终究不会忘记自己的老本行,Ryan也十分关注学生在家锻炼的情况。“当然,对于我们的健康和福祉来说,一个重要的因素是我们的身体活动。”研究表明,身体活跃的学生往往有更好的成绩、出勤率、认知表现(如记忆力)和课堂行为(如任务行为)。此外,较高的身体活动和身体素质水平与学生的认知能力(例如注意力、记忆力)的改善有关。

 

为此,他给学生拟定了在家的锻炼程序:

 

1、在你的地板上腾出一些空间

2、使用瑜伽垫或毛巾进行铺垫

3、确保附近有足够的水

4、确保你先做伸展运动,然后再做降温运动。(把瑜伽当作一种拉伸和降温的方法)

 

 

Ryan希望即使疫情期间,我们学生也能保持安全,保持活跃,保持健康。虽然一开始你会觉得很辛苦,但是当锻炼成为你生活中的一部分时,一切都会朝着美好的方向发展。

 

It will take a little effort in the beginning to push yourself to be active. But once it becomes a part of your routine, it will get much easier. You will start to feel the results almost immediately, your muscles may be tired but you will feel more energized, stronger, more focused and healthier.

I hope this guide helps you in some way. Remember, keep your mind healthy as well as your body. Stay safe, stay active, stay healthy.

 

学生在教室里作画

 

保持身体健康和头脑灵活是疫情期间PE老师Ryan对学生期待,他用力量和强壮征服学生。

 

而另一外教Amelia,则是继续她的美术课程,用“美”和“缪斯”来征服学生,让他们继续沉浸在艺术审美的海洋中。

 

外教Amelia

 

来自澳大利亚的外教Amelia已经加入西外大家庭好几年了。在她的艺术教室里,她和学生一起用画笔描绘生活的五彩斑斓。Amelia热爱艺术,小时候就常常光顾美术馆的她,对世界各地的各种艺术一直非常着迷。她把这份热爱带到教学中,感染每一位热爱艺术的学生。

 

Amelia更愿意称自己的课堂为艺术设计课程。因为学习这门课程是为了确保所有学生能够发挥他们的创造力和想象力,并提高他们的执行能力。而“美术”,好像不能精准概括。不知道是不是每一位学习艺术的老师都这样“较真”,但她的这份“较真”正是艺术的魅力所在。艺术本就该“吹毛求疵”,否则何以成就经典?

 

在西外教授艺术的过程中,她常常鼓励学生利用课内外的各种媒介来探索开发创造力。如今,线上授课更是契机。

 

The Art and Design Curriculum has been designed to ensure that all students develop their creativity and ideas and increase proficiency in their execution. In the class room, the students learn about the important elements of Art and Design with a focus on building their drawing and painting skills. During my time teaching art at Xiwai, I have encouraged students to explore their creativity using a variety of mediums in and outside the classroom.

 

学生透视和字母作品

 

线上教授美术课程很困难,因为学生无法使用通常在美术教室里所用的材料。但Amelia已经考虑到这一点,并给在线课程做了调整。这段时间的艺术设计课,Amelia和她的学生们已经通过观察和实践,学习了一点透视法。同学们已经学会了如何运用一点透视法去创建各种形状和字母,然后将创作出自己的街景涂鸦画。“学生们做得很棒,我为他们感到骄傲。”Amelia每次谈到自己的学生,都是满脸的骄傲。

 

Taking art class into the digital realm has been a challenge, as students may not have access to the materials they usually would in the art room. I have tailored the online classes to take this into account and we have been learning about 1 point perspective through observation and practice. Students have learned how to create a variety of shapes and letters in 1-point perspective and will then create their own streetscape with graffiti for their major project. So far the students have been doing amazing work and I am so proud of them. Keep up the good work every one!

 

 

体育和艺术, “力”和“美”,就好像是教育的两只抓手,一刚一柔,一武一文,只有两者相辅相成,刚柔并济,文武兼备,才能促进学生的全面发展,这是培养“全人”的必需营养品,缺一不可。外教的课程,为这两样“营养品”,更添加了更多的有益元素,为学生带来了更广阔的思考维度和视野广度。

 

在疫情期间,外教的体育和艺术仍旧陪伴着学生们度过每一天。真的想夸一夸我们的老师们,好像没有什么事情可以阻碍他们继续完成知识传递,把他们最新的思考告诉学生。生活中总是会出现各种各样的偶然和不确定,就像这次疫情之于学校的教学一样。好在我们的老师们一直都在努力,从不放弃,换个地方,照样可以上课。这种有序正常的师生教与学,才是我们喜闻乐见的场景,是对抗病毒强有力的“有效药”!

 

我们期待重回校园的那一天,见到亲爱的老师,可爱的同学,更期待在操场上随风奔跑,在画室里自由涂鸦......
