Dear All NWCS Fellow Members;
Dear All Parents, Teachers and Students;
Except newcomers, no more class-switching in between classes will be allowed without Principal’s approval based on actual circumstances. Thank you for help our teachers maintain classes orderly.
MARKING CORRECTIONS ON STUDENT'S HOMEWORK IS SIMPLY THE TEACHER'S DUTY
Recently, a few parents complained that one or two teachers did not correct student’s homework, leaving it to volunteer parents instead. First of all, this is not the right way to carry out a teaching job. We emphasize it is simply the teacher’s duty. We also believe that this is temporary and individual. The majority of our teachers are working hard as much as expected. As teachers, we need consciousness, patience and appreciation. At the same time, the job can’t be ideal with the cooperation among teachers, parents and students. We sincerely welcome criticism and suggestions from all parents so that we can draw lessons from mistakes and have the jobs done better in the future. Criticism is a negative task that is supposed to have positive payoffs.
3. 不一样的批评 NOT THE SAME TYPE OF CRITICISM
NWCS ADMIN welcomes suggestion and criticism from all parents, yet, we encourage noticing, praising to our students instead of criticizing. We have the policy that only 2 parents are allowed to seat in the classroom while the class is in session. Your cooperation and consideration are highly appreciated. The teacher is the host of the classroom, no abuse of any kind is allowed, even if s/he is your child. We remind our teachers not to criticize students unless you strong feel that you have to and do it with skills and tactics. A few more words about praise: Genuine praise reinforces positive behaviors. To do so, praise should be specific. For example, “Wow, you used a lot of great colors in that painting. Look at those bright red and blue birds!” is more specific and authentic than simply saying, “You are a great artist.” I believe that the first comment shows the student that we are really looking at his/her creation and appreciating it, while as the second one sounds vague and canned. We adults usually criticize with good intention. Yet, we have to keep in mind that after all we have the mature wisdom our children lack. If we have to employ criticism, offer it with specific and constructive details without denigrating a student in a personal way.
