With the rapid development of globalization, different countries in the world are closely linked.
No matter from the local or global perspectives, globalization has brought unprecedented cooperation and competition. Meanwhile, we are eager to fulfill our obligations for being global citizens and cherish the world closely related with us.
Therefore, International Understanding Education is favored by all, and our responsibilities as educators are particularly clear, which include students should be trained to adapt to the changes of social development. From the aspects of cultural understanding, social understanding and information expression, students should correctly understand themselves, respect others, learn to communicate and cooperate, have team spirit, understand the diversity of culture, and have a basic open sense of facing the world. This is also our original intention of founding the International Understanding Club of Jiayuguan School.
我們選用由劍橋大學出版社教育專家Herbert Puchta及其團隊精心雕琢的以開發智力、強化思維、師生互動為特色的系列英語教學課程--《劍橋少兒英語 Super Minds》作為帶領孩子們理解這個世界的課程載體。
We chose a series of English textbooks named Super minds, which are elaborately designed by Herbert Puchta, an education expert of Cambridge University Press, and his team, with the characteristics of developing intelligence, strengthening thinking ability and teacher-student interaction as the course carrier to lead children to understand the world.
The series of courses can not only cultivate students' English ability, but also focus on the development of thinking ability, creative ability, memory ability and mental attention ability that benefit students for life, so that students' brain can be most effectively developed.
The content of the course revolves around the story about the process of the little heroes' exploring the world. The story is full of attractions, which is fully arousing the students' interest in learning. At the same time, it is shaping and improving the students' personal accomplishment and quality in a subtle way. With the increase of the difficulty of the course, students can also understand the politics, culture, geography, economy and other knowledge about different countries in the world. It not only can help to improve students ‘English ability, but also achieve mutual understanding and mutual concern among people of all countries.
By learning the course of International Understanding, students can learn that they understand the cultural customs in different countries and effectively acquire the information they need, so that they can keep pace with the international development. The course also can cultivate their international awareness, enable them to understand the diversity of the world, broaden their horizons and absorb the essence of all kinds of multiculturalism as well, so that they can face problems in an international perspective.
