品德教育。全面教育的真相和价值

Yew Chung International School of Beijing LogoCharacter education is a relatively new concept in the education world. Yew Chung International School of Beijing explains this educational philosophy

Despite claims of being promoted in various international and local schools, the concept and true results of this educational philosophy are largely unknown or misunderstood by many parents.
事实是,品德教育不是一个单一的过程,也不是一个单一的结果;相反,品德教育如果实施得当,可以被视为影响到学习的每一个方面。虽然结果不会显示在纸上,但品德教育的效果可以通过那些受其教育的人的行动和反应清楚地显示出来。

icon-world-schools-1什么是真正的品德教育?

品德教育的核心可以理解为发展儿童的 "内在道德指南针"。为了发展上述指南针,学生必须有机会参加定期活动,以促进某些理想的性格特征,并有机会沉浸在自我反省中。在 YCIS Beijing, 小学生在老师布置的日常课堂活动中接触到责任、勇气、友谊和热情等性格特征。每个品格特征每周轮换一次,并扎根于每个课程计划中。特质是每周集会的主要焦点,学生在展示有关特质时得到奖励。品格特征在每个课程计划的形成和执行中发挥着重要作用,以确保它们不是简单的口头承诺,而是与学生的学习完全交织在一起。

真正的品德教育模式决不能局限于课堂教学。为了让学生们有效地开始将灌输给他们的品格人格化,他们必须参与到更大的社区中去。我们鼓励他们参加各种项目,亲眼目睹这些特征不仅对他们自己的生活,而且对其他人的生活所产生的积极影响。 YCIS Beijing 我们已经制定了各种慈善活动,给学生提供了急需的机会来利用他们在课堂上所学的技能。其中一个比较常见的努力是募捐。每年,学生们在 YCIS Beijing 为慈善机构筹集数以千计的资金。这方面的例子包括复活节筹款活动,在这个活动中,小学的孩子们为有特殊需要的孤儿的寄养家庭筹集资金,以及阅读活动,在这个活动中,学生们为阅读寻求捐款,这些捐款将捐给中国的贫困农民。然后,学生们被邀请参观他们所支持的慈善机构,看看他们的捐款是如何用于影响他人的生活的。

Secondary students are tasked with spear-heading their own initiatives and to find ways in which they can personally give back to their community. As part of the International Baccalaureate (IB) curriculum, all students participate in the Creativity, Action, and Service (CAS) programme, which is designed to raise students’ awareness of the needs of their local and global communities. The 2015 – 2016 school year saw a number of fundraising campaigns initiated by Secondary School students, ranging from art auctions and charity galas to fundraising marathons and environmental projects, all aimed at improving the lives of others. The YCIS foundation has also set up its own charity where each school raises money to contribute the building of schools in impoverished or disaster-stricken areas of China.
