前言:這份學習單是我在十月十八日與新竹關西高中英文老

師分享英文教學經驗的資料。中學生的英文閱讀不但要與時

俱進,更要有國際觀,因此我建議 Time for Kids (美國時

代雜誌兒童版) 這本有價值的雜誌作為閱讀素材的來源。

 

我一直強調不要依賴逐字中文翻譯來閱讀英文、理解英文。

年紀小的孩子藉由繪本裡的精采圖像可以找到故事線索,那

年紀大的孩子閱讀長篇有深度的文章時,該怎麼辦呢?以這

篇打破世界紀錄的太空跳傘為例,我仔細挑選了五段影片

(詳細內容請見一則傳奇:Mission to the Edge

of Space供孩子欣賞。一方面播放給孩子看,一方面以 6wh

-- who、what、when、where、how、why 來提醒孩子,看到什

麼,讓孩子自己從影片觀賞中產生概念,接下來再提供關鍵

字。

  

導讀工作1:多用疑問句作引導,眼睛“看”到什麼導讀

工作2:多用疑問句作引導,推敲、猜測 key words

 

閱讀前的導讀工作有助於學生提高對文章閱讀的興趣。首先

讓孩子看過影片有初步認識,然後提供關鍵字與畫面作連結

。雖然是一篇有份量的文章,當孩子心中有了〝影像認知

及〝文字連結〞這兩份導覽,文章閱讀可以比較經鬆而且沒

負擔。

Exosphere - the outermost layer of the Earth's atmosphere, where
                    atmospheric pressure and temperature are low.
Ionosphere - the atmospheric layer between the mesosphere and
                     the exosphere; it is part of the thermosphere.
Mesosphere - the atmospheric layer between the stratosphere and
                      the ionosphere.
Stratosphere - the atmospheric layer between the troposphere and
                       the mesosphere. The stratosphere is characterized
                       by a slight temperature increase with altitude and
                       by the absence of clouds.
Thermosphere - the layer of the atmosphere located above part of
                          the ionosphere (starting at the coldest part of
                          the atmosphere) and below outer space; it consists
                          of the exosphere and part of the ionosphere.
Troposphere - the lowest layer of the Earth's atmosphere. The
                       weather and clouds occur in the troposphere.
