2009年秋季“中文教学系列专题讲座之一”

I. CLASS Professional Standards for K-12 Chinese Language
Teachers (2007)
全美中小学中文教师资格标准大纲 (2007)

Presenter (主讲教师): Ms. Catherine H Yen (胡家兴老师)
Catherine Yen was born in China, grew up in Taipei, and was educated in Taiwan, France and the United States. She received her BA in English, MAs in French and School Counseling, and teaching certificates for ESL, French and Chinese. From 1978, she has been a teacher of ESL, French and Chinese, bilingual counselor, foreign language department chair, and district foreign language mentor teacher. In the professional development field, she has received extensive training in second language acquisition theory, language learning and reading methodology, strategies, assessment and classroom management. She worked in the Bay Area Foreign Language Project, the National Standards for Chinese Language Learning for K-12, the AP Chinese language course and exam Task Force, the Participant’s Manual for AP Chinese Workshops, and the Curriculum Committee for Mandarin Immersion Program in San Francisco Unified School District. Currently she serves as a College Board AP Chinese workshop consultant.

Abstract(摘要):
The burgeoning of Chinese education in the United States has resulted in increased demand for Chinese learning in K-12 schools and colleges. More Chinese language teachers are needed. Soon after the publication of the National Standards for Foreign Language Learning, the CLASS had gathered some experienced Chinese educators to work on a document that would serve as a guide for teacher recruitment, teacher training and certification. The CLASS Professional Standards describe the knowledge, skills, and teacher dispositions that would help new as well as veteran teachers plan their curriculum effectively, use varied strategies and engage in continued professional development.

Outline(讲座内容简介):
12 Standards on Language Proficiency, Linguistic Competency, Cultural Knowledge, Second Language Acquisition, Child Growth and Development, Diverse Learners, Learning Environment, Instructional Planning and Strategies, Assessment, Communication Skills, Technology Knowledge and Skills and Professional Development.

Time(讲座时间):9月13日(周日)1:30pm-2:55pm

World Language Standards have now been developed for California Public Schools, from Kindergarten through Grade Twelve. This workshop will present and discuss the following five standards: Content, Communication, Cultures, Structures and Settings.

Outline(讲座内容简介):
Content: Students acquire relevant content through a variety of topic, as they become literate in their target language. This content reinforces and connects with their knowledge from other areas of the curriculum The learning continuum of age and stage appropriateness will be addressed.
Communication: Students must communicate in their target language to respond to real life situations, and interact with a variety of audiences.
Cultures: Students learn to connect language and culture and understand the values and attitudes that shape the target culture. Both formal and informal aspects of culture are needed to demonstrate cultural understanding.
Structures: Students will learn the structures of language that convey meaning, as well as patterns of in the language system. They learn both linguistic and grammatically appropriate structures.
Settings: Students learn when and where to use language, so that it is culturally appropriate and to clarify meanings in both formal and informal settings.

Participants will participate in hands on activities using the above standards and be able to leave with practical lessons for immediate use in their classrooms!

Fall 2009 Workshop on Teaching Chinese as a Second Language - IV
2009年秋季“中文教学系列专题讲座之四”

IV. The Phonetic Description of Modern Standard Chinese:
Theoretical Perspectives
由语音学理论看现代汉语语音

主讲教师:Prof. Chris Wen-chao Li(李文肇教授)
语言学博士,美国旧金山州立大学外文系副教授。1997年毕业於英国牛津大学,担任英国国家广播电台(BBC)制作人,随後任教於明尼苏达大学丶台湾师范大学及旧金山州立大学。着有专书《国语音系之共时拟构》(A Diachronically-motivated Segmental Phonology of Mandarin Chinese) 及教材《新闻华语》,并有语言学及翻译学论文发表於《Target 国际翻译学刊》, Language and Communication, 《国际语音学会会刊》(Journal of the International Phonetic Association), 《美国东方学会会刊》(Journal of the American Oriental Society) 等刊物,译作见於《译丛》 (Renditions) 及《中国笔会季刊》(The Chinese Pen)。

讲座内容简介:
语音是汉语学习的切入点,而现代汉语的诸多辅音丶元音丶声调及其相互组合配列,能够以哪些不同方式丶不同观点加以阐述。本讲座将举以下语言学分析法,将之套用於普通话语音之描述:

  1. 生理语音学(articulatory phonetics)
  2. 中英对比分析(contrastive analysis)
  3. 通用语法(universal grammar)与标记理论(markedness theory)
  4. 音位配列(phonotactics)
  5. 生成音位学(generative phonology)
  6. 语音演变(sound change)
藉由理论之运用,一方面对於汉语语音能够有更扎实丶彻底之认识,另一方面也藉由辨音丶析音熟悉近半世纪语音学丶音位学理论之发展,达到学用并进之效。

Time(讲座时间):10月11日(周日)3:05pm-4:30pm

Place(讲座地点):Humanities Building #133
