The Secondary School English Panel of Saint Paul School is glad to announce that the 2nd session of public lesson under the Inter-school Collaboration Pilot Scheme in English Teaching was successfully demonstrated on April 29th, 2023. According to DSEDJ agendas, the scheme aims to create a collaborative platform to form an enhanced curriculum and development of teacher expertise, forging closer relationships between participating schools and bringing schools together to break down the barriers in a mutually beneficial way. The scheme is co-organised by three schools: CDSJ5, CDSJ6, and Saint Paul School as the organizing school, supervised by Associate Professor Rochelle Ge, Dean of the Faculty of Education from the University of St. Joseph.
Two sections made up of the event. The first part was a public lesson demonstrated by Ms. Candy Chong and Junior Secondary 2 students with the pedagogical application of “Presentation-Practice-Production” (P-P-P) and Task-Based Language Teaching (TBLT). The students were engaged throughout the lesson and enjoyed an enhanced educational experience with various opportunities of producing the target language in a creative way. The second part was an after-class discussion by the panel teachers, together with the adviser Professor Ge, particularly noticing the instruments of both the public lesson showcase and the subsequent follow up of the project. The event was concluded with discussions and questions from the audience consisting of around 120 local and non-local teachers from schools in Macau.
Much appreciated with Mr. Stanley Cheang’s attendance, the Head of Division of Curriculum Development and Assessment from DSEDJ, who expressed high gratitude to the efforts and dedication made by the workgroup. The Pedagogical team consists of English teachers delegated by 3 schools in Macau – CDSJ 5, CDSJ 6 and Saint Paul School.
Once again, we would like to express our sincere gratitude to all teachers involved, student helpers, and other participants who had sacrificed their time and efforts in making this event a memorable and successful event.
