閱卷試務難度高 英聽應獨立設科測驗

2015-05-18 01:31:26      聯合報 王延煌/高中校長(南投市)

今年國中教育會考最大的變革,為數學非選及英聽正式納入成績計算。兩者對於會考總成績和超額比序都有關鍵性的影響。

英聽測驗經過一○二、一○三年的試辦,及本年度的正式實施,總共有三種施測方式,未來不論合科合卷、合科分卷、分科分卷都產生許多問題或困難。 Read the rest of this entry »

監考手冊語言癌 難怪英聽大烏龍

我擔任國中會考的監試委員,繃緊神經到英聽結束後才鬆一大口氣,但不久後就傳出英聽監考出了差錯,影響很多人。回想當初拿到監考手冊,乍看之下也認為播畢即收,但反覆研究,也聽到主辦人多次說明,我仍然認為一定會有人出錯,果然不幸而言中。 Read the rest of this entry »

冰箱已是時下每個家庭必備的家電用品,現代人利用低溫冷藏減緩細菌生長的速度,藉以保持食物的新鮮。一般人習慣什麼東西買來都丟進冰箱,不過呢,並不是所有的食材都適合放進冰箱裡,有的食物放到冰箱中冷藏,不僅會降低品質和風味,甚至喪失養分,還可能會加速變質,潘老師並不建議將它們放進冰箱裡冷藏:  Read the rest of this entry »

Chignon

May 17th, 2015

I got a LINE message from Chris this evening. She asked me what I’m going to wear to my son’s wedding. In her message, I learend a new word chignon. In fact, I correctly guessed the meaning from the context: “Something very Chinese,  with your hair in a chignon?” Something very Chinese refers to chipao, and the image of a lady in a chipao immediately explained the meaning of the word “chignon.”

This is why reading helps expand one’s vocabulary.

The Positive Side

May 16th, 2015

When arranging the tables for my son’s wedding banquet, we found it hard to have every table shared by people who already know one another. Most people would wish to sit with their friends; however, sharing a table with strangers is not that bad. It is a good chance to get to know new friends, isn’t it? Read the rest of this entry »

自由廣場》偏鄉教師的感慨與期望

2015-05-14 06:00

◎ 呂禮詩

大學個人申請入學及繁星推薦第八學群招生日前放榜,經濟弱勢生僅四成上榜,低於一般生的五成錄取率,甚至進入頂尖大學的僅有百來人,根本就是「屈指可數」;經濟弱勢學生的學力究竟出了什麼樣的問題,在國民教育已邁入十二年學制的今天,教育反而成為「階級翻轉」的障礙,非常值得探討。

以筆者服務的偏鄉國中而言,去年七年級學生入學時,為瞭解孩子的英文程度所進行的能力鑑測,讓人訝異的是:不但英文字母由A唸不到Z的大有人在,數字一至二十的拼寫竟也普遍的「零零落落」,第一次段考「雙峰現象」的兩極化,更令人心驚! Read the rest of this entry »
