3月27日下午两点,英语教研组欢聚在长郡中学办公楼六楼,欣赏高二备课组李芸老师为教研组呈现的一堂主题为“Appreciating Art Critically”的活动展示课。 该堂课是李芸老师深入学习新课标精神,将新课标理念与英语学科核心素养相结合,进行的一次大胆创新的尝试。课堂精彩纷呈,老师的引导生动自然,学生的表演令人惊艳,师生的互动和讨论积极热烈。

李芸老师整合了模块八第一、二单元关于文学与艺术的素材,以教材语篇为依托,课前布置学生对《图兰朵》的最后一幕进行再创作,并在学生的所有创作剧本中,选择一个有代表性的,让学生自己将故事演绎出来。学生根据剧情需要,自己选择配乐并演奏, 将文本内容与艺术鉴赏有机整合,让学生在合作探究和体验的过程中思考艺术的价值,同时对中西方文化的异同进行思考。而作为观众的学生也通过原有文本的阅读,和对演出学生的评价,进行批判性思考,提出自己的想法,增加他们的参与感和体验感。整堂课真正地达到了“教师调动,学生主动,师生互动,气氛生动”的效果。学生有望通过这堂课,在有限的生命中,于无限的艺术的世界里,寻找到有关爱、有关幸福、有关生命的意义。

课后,各备课组老师们对李芸老师的课堂予以了高度评价,肯定了该课的创新性和挑战性,同时也对李芸老师提出了很多中肯的建议。全宏春老师首先指出,如果学生的演出能够配合相应的服装和道具,那么舞台效果会更震撼;欧阳兵老师表示,李芸老师口语流利,英语素养非常高,但是希望能够稍微放慢语速,将课堂指令简化,也希望青年教师在备课时将课堂指示语的每一句话写下来并背下来,以便督促自身的更快成长;黄辉老师从鉴赏的角度提出,是否将话题集中在“love”这一个主题上会更好,如果专注一个点的话,课堂会更加深入,但是这也是非常有挑战性的一项任务,需要进一步挖掘和思考;宁希宏老师则从众多细节的角度进行了点评,并希望李芸老师能对这堂课继续进行打磨,推向长沙市的骨干教师展示课。

最后,教研组长杨巍老师对大家的点评进行了总结,并提出了自己的独到见解。杨巍老师认为,李芸老师的课紧紧围绕核心素养的四要素展开:语言能力方面,关注学生用英语思维,体现出语言既是文化的载体,又是思维的工具,整堂课的教学都依托语篇蓝本进行,教师不但让学生认真学习教材文本,还提供了一篇艺术评论文章,让学生的点评有章可循,同时教师鼓励学生尽量使用教材文本中的句子尝试说英语,适当补充合适的材料,增强学生的语言体验。文化意识方面,教师积极引导学生增强对中外优秀文化的认同,并批判性地吸取优秀文化内涵。思维品质方面,本堂课注重培养学生的创新性思维,主要体现在学生创作性地为图兰朵歌剧编排了结尾,以及批判性思维,主要体现在学生对表演的评论方面。学习能力方面,学生通过本堂课,加深了对艺术瑰宝的洞察力,今后有望能从内容和形式上对各种文学艺术进行恰当的评价。总之,本堂课教师引导方法得当,学生表现精彩。教师引导学生更深刻地体会艺术的魅力,欣赏艺术文化的美妙,从而发展学生的鉴赏能力和批判性思维能力。教师不断鼓励学生分享感受经历看法和个人创作,为学生展现自我、挑战自我和相互学习创造了极佳的环境。但是,本堂课也有几点需要李芸老师进一步思考:首先,这堂课的课型到底怎么定位更好一些?是单元整合复习课,还是艺术展示课,或者是艺术评论课?那么在今后的备课中,教师首先应该对课型把握好,不能跑偏方向甚至根本没有中心方向。其次,最后两个环节,即学生观众的点评到最后的表演学生的总结,能不能调换一下,以便观众的点评更加有依据和深刻呢?这就需要我们在备课中认真思考课堂流程的逻辑性和严谨性。

总之,李芸老师的这堂展示课,打破了传统教学模式,是一次大胆的创新的尝试,也让教研组每位老师感觉耳目一新。本堂课充分体现了新课标所倡导的指向学科核心素养的英语学习活动观和自主学习、合作学习、探究性学习等的有机融合。教师使学生通过应用实践、迁移创新的一系列融语言、文化、思维为一体的活动,以语篇为载体,表达个人观点意图和情感态度。这有利于发展学生多元思维和批判性思维,切实提高英语学习能力和运用能力。这对我们今后的教学也提供了启示。

A sample commentary on an opera Aida

Tonight, I went to see the famous Italian opera Aida at the opera house. It was crowded but I was lucky enough to get a great seat. I could not believe my ears when I heard the beautiful music. All the performers had such powerful voices that they touched the softest place in my soul. The music went perfectly with the performances. With the development of the story, the music sometimes sounded passionate; sometimes sad; sometimes gentle; sometimes tense. I even felt my breath in and out with it.   

The opera tells the story of Aida, an Ethiopian princess who is taken away to Egypt to work as a slave. Her angry father comes to save her with an army and fights against the Egyptian army, which is led by Radames. Radames, who loves Aida, betrays the Egyptian king because he wants to help Aida to escape.

I don't really like stories about love and I certainly did not cry at the end! However, I must admit that I am fond of the actress, who played the role as Aida. Her performance was vivid and full of passion. When she showed her love the Radames, she expressed her emotion through every detail of her body language. Besides, I was a little frightened when the fireworks were set off during the battle scenes. Most of all, I loved the set. I thought I was in Egypt. I could not believe it when I saw the elephants and horses on stage!

Step 4  Opinion sharing

Activity  All the participants from the Participant Group from share their intention and feelings of giving such a performance.

The playwright will share her writing intention.

The director will share how she organizes the performance and her feelings.

The violin player will share his understanding of the music.

The actor and the actress also share their understanding of the role they play


Step 5  Conclusion

The teacher will draw a conclusion in the following aspects:

1. Art is a universal language, which can communicate western and eastern culture.

2. As Chinese students, it is our duty to promote our cultural essence to the world, to have people around the globe understand us better.

3. The process of appreciating art can be an enjoyable but challenging one, which needs persistence.

4. Art is a noble way to enrich our life.


Step 5 Homework

Write down the review they have presented orally.
