Multimedia Tasking 2.0 (MmT 2.0) for the Junior Secondary English Classroom
The project aims to engage English language teachers in designing culminating multimedia tasks for modules in the school-based English language curriculum at Key Stage 3 (S1-S3).
The multimedia tasks will be directly linked to curriculum aims, objectives and modules/units, and will involve students in writing digitally and creating multimedia projects using computer software and web applications.
Various strategies for teaching writing, such as shared writing, process writing and multimodal writing/creating will be considered in the co-planning sessions with the support of the Regional NET Coordinators.
本校每年均參與交換生計劃，歡迎交換生到來呂中大家庭，早已成為本校可貴的傳統。今年，加入呂中大家庭的是來自俄羅斯的交換生Igor Kondrich (陸家希)。Igor為人親切友善，他按自己的興趣選修了不同學科。
Exchange student programme
Our school joins student exchange programme every year. It has been LYC’s valuable tradition to welcome an exchange student into our big family each year. This year we have Igor Kondrich, a very friendly and polite boy from Russia, with us. He studies in several classes, based on the subjects he has chosen. To enable cultural exchanges between Igor and other students, he also joins oral lessons taught by our NET teacher, Mr Gilbert.
Igor, a 1.8-meter basketball player, is always passionate about sports. Practicing with the basketball team as well as participating in different sport events have been an important of his life here in LYC. He also looks for opportunities to interact with different teachers and his fellow schoolmates in different occasions in English, Russian and also Cantonese, a dialect he is eager to master. Recently, he has shared with Form 4A his recent trip to Beijing with interesting photos and videos. As a whole, LYC students really enjoy every moment spent with Igor.
In this academic year, Department of Liberal Studies has taken part in EDB School-based Support Services, which aim to help teachers plan and implement issue-based and skill-based Liberal Studies curricula. In the second year of this project, under the strong support of EDB School-based Professional Support Section, existing teaching materials have been reviewed and revised with elements of self-directed learning included. For example, Jigsaw II grouping is adopted in core topics so as to help students construct knowledge as well as enhance investigative and analytical skills.
In this academic year, a Russian girl, Anita Valieva（謝安妮）, attends our school and studies different subjects with students. Students do enjoy interacting with her and find it interesting to learn about a foreign culture while practicing their spoken English.
