Euphemia老师的这节VCE Viscomm，主题即为“Typeface terminology & convention”，以期学生在课堂上掌握平面设计中涉及字体的术语表达——学会定义区分tracking（字间距）, kerning（字距调整）和Leading（行间距），并在实操中开始探索如何调整字体样式。
• Good mix of theory and practice in the time limit
• Good ppt presentation
• Well organized
Writing is difficult for most of the students. Even though some students could write out something based on a topic, the logic sometimes doesn’t make sense in their writing. For one paragraph, their sentences are not connected from the meaning or structure.
One of the biggest problem is that some students don’t have a topic sentence in their paragraph or their topic sentence is not effective though they know what a topic sentence is and they could find out the topic sentence when they read one paragraph.
Based on this, for this class, Linda decided to make the lesson objective as students could identify the features of a good topic sentence and they could write an effective topic sentence by themselves in their writing.
Teaching and learning process:
1.Students are divided into 3 groups.
2.Student are shown a group of sentences(one of them is a topic sentence). They need to put these sentences in a correct order and explain why. By doing this, students would discuss their answers with their group members and also the function of topic sentence (usually the first sentence of the paragraph, and it could summarize the main idea of the paragraph).
3.Brainstorm the features of a good topic sentence.
4.Show students two groups of sentences and by letting students analyze these sentences with their group members, students need to summarize and find out the features of an effective topic sentence.
5.Practice: based on the same topic, give students three sentences and work in groups, let them identify the effective one, explain the reason and revise it to be an effective one.
-Guidance in an effective way
-Encourage students to summarize what they have learnt
-Students are well engaged
-Good resources/materials to support lesson
-Allow students to figure out what a good topic sentence is by showing examples instead of just telling them
Why do students need to wear school uniform?
Would you rather be popular or famous?
Marc’s class intended to teach students about:
1.How to deliver your opinions of any topic convincingly.
2.Consider the logic of yours or others statements. Try to debate with classmates.
His class is well-organized, it includes a brainstorm as the lead in to think about the topic and there is group work, individual work and pair work. The teaching atmosphere is friendly.
-Learn through doing
-Debate as one of the teaching strategies
-Uses humour during the class
