Prep School深度遊

作為一間出色的Prep School,學生能在具深度和寬度的課程中發展所長。在這精心安排的課程中,他們能夠盡情投入,並在獨立思考和解難等的個人技能上發光發亮。

 

在英國,Prep School的定義是專為7-13歲學生提供教育的學校,並因學生讀senior school的年紀而有所不同。而在美國,私立Prep School卻是專們為14-18歲學生提供教育,為他們準備升讀高中和大學。

 

而Prep School這獨特的學校能與世界各地其他學校有所不同,在於其致力提供「照書讀」以外的多元教學模式。例如英國的Mount Kelly正使用名為Abacus的教學工具套裝以補充數學課。老師們利用Abacus提供的多項補充工具令數學堂更立體和全面,學生能遊走在不同的數學理論中,並實踐真正互動教學。

 

除了英文、數學和科學堂,不少英國Prep School亦有提供拉丁文、西班牙文班和一系列較特別的課目例如文化研究和電腦等,學生能夠接觸更廣闊的課程範疇。而一些例如Gresham’s等的Prep School亦將焦點集中於創意教育、視覺藝術、運動和木工等冷門而實用的學科。

 

在美國,單看一寫學校例如Berkshire的課程,就能明白所謂「課程寬度」的意思。他們為學生提供航空科學、天文學和可持續發展課程等。

 

而現在的歷史科亦有所改革:不少學校比以往更著重教授近代歷史事件,令學生能夠將事件和911後的現代世界事件掛勾。而歷史課的核心學習方向-辯論和討論-則成為Prep Schools的成功關鍵。

 

所謂課程的寬度,重點不在於學生能夠達到考試的標準,而是以學生為本,滿足他們不同的程度和需要。而香港學生的熱情主動和開放思想亦常令我為之一振。孩子需要在沒有被功課和考試淹沒的環境下才能發揮好個人質素和培養個人性格。

 

有好多較「死板」的科目,只要加入field trips考察的元素,就能令其有趣得多。例如在英國有很多內戰時期遺留下的戰場古跡,親身踏足該地比起純粹透過書本進行視覺上的學習來得切實。猶記起讀Prep School時,親眼目睹一條條坑紋的巨形懸崖和感受Hunstanton的地質,甚至親手觸摸有一億年歷史的橙、紅、白化石,令地理堂注滿了生命的氣息,活像和世界一同呼吸!
