I am in the country after of primary, secondary, to the United States in
2006 on a secondary school grade
11 ( to the domestic High School). Before I went to the United States in, often heard people say that the U.S. secondary ecation is the freedom of playing without any pressure to learn. Their high school math, physics, level of ecation of China's first day. American students practical hands-on ability, but not as good as the Chinese students a solid basic knowledge of ... ... However, the U.S. high school students living in the end what?
They have learned in high school, what? They do? For Chinese students are very familiar, is very abstract. I am very curious to learn a new side of the ocean of life, quite frankly, very long for a no pressure, very relaxed way of learning.
To the United States after the discovery, in fact, the U.S. secondary ecation is not as we imagined and simple, is not so . From the beginning of exposure to a period of time , I feel different with the Chinese way of ecation, not only in secondary ecation, and the whole ecation system there is a . U.S. ecation system is focusing on social and physical quality of student training. Students not only learn each day, the school and arrange a lot of time for physical exercise (, olives, football, athletics, swimming, boxing, etc.) and social practice and so on, to develop students' ability. Therefore, the would be a time, and effective is the essence of the American ecation system. U.S. high school, of arts, science, and the use of credit. , English, physics, chemistry, history, elective courses are very rich, , , instry, , water , , driving, , fashion, food, , economic, legal, , language, home economics , shipping, and other areas, any student in the content or career needs, have the courses to choose from. Can be said that the U.S. ecation is for students to learn the fate and goal is to locate in . Not only that, the school is focusing on the teaching , services, students, school library open to students the day, readily available, , download data.
In the classroom, the United States, ecation is embodied in the head. Classroom is like a , each student can put forward their own different opinions, the students in the classroom with the teacher arguing is common. American students grew to a large crowd to express their point of view, the more public, more eloquent. In the classroom, we are very good at their views, or even saying nothing was wrong anyway, so we freely in class, the classroom was very lively. This is not just a surface active, more teachers scripted, one is much better, this exchange heuristic teaching methods for students to truly become the masters of the classroom to take the to think, to identify the diversity of common sense.
First few days, I like all the time in class when it was domestic, with a notebook to take notes carefully. It was that the teacher's pen and paper are placed on the podium, do students feel free to take notes, I feel very human.
In basic ecation, compared to the relative weakening of the domestic purposes, not for every student in the spoon-fed the repeated memory. However, they start from Year
10 or earlier will be a lot for students, such as computer web design, simple circuit board design, robot design and proction, and other of major bridge , capacity demanding course. The vast majority of American high school students work after school much, school work, the day will have more time to make their own thing. As, to enjoy life, exercise, , parties, etc., is very ordinary things. This is of China two thousand years ago the great ecator Confucius advocated "ritual, music, shooting, defense, and books, a few" other six arts master, all-round , which is advocated in today's China should learn from the quality ecation . Some American students will use their leisure time is to do some study or something of interest. In this , people no longer learn the machine, no longer have the emotional weariness, and everyone to learn and grow in joy, in learning to be happy. For example, my students do the robot Gohn involved in the design and proction, the proction process, often encounter some problems, they will ask me this has the physical contest in China won first prize for the top students secondary school students. Every time, I will use their own material
knowledge, answer it to him. The correct answer to Gohn admire me, I feel a sense of . , although my grades for each exam are among the best, but I still can not proced robot, can not put their knowledge into practical hands-on ability, which is often said that the children of China on the basis of good theory, the of knowledge, practical skills and expertise in American children, and more will create....
