    来!来过节:新加坡学前节庆教案与评量
    (南大-新加坡华文教研中心出版社, 2018)

    Come, Let's Celebrate! Preschool Teaching Activities and Evaluation for Festivals of Singapore stemmed from Tyler's objective-centered model to provide lesson examples related to festivals of Singapore's diverse ethnicities and cultures. It aims to propose a framework and approach to teaching activities related to such festivals. General knowledge and guiding values in early childhood education are embedded in the introductions of these festivals, which include accessible background reading and several suggested teaching activities. Early childhood teachers can modify and extend the activities of a specific festival for other festivals as well. To provide teachers with evaluation tools, each teaching activity also contains a suggested assessment based on different learning areas.

    Festivals are important occasions for the people and are accumulated through life experience in a long term. These important days usually have a close relationship with the local natural and social environment. As the seasons change, different seasons reflect different seasonal meanings, which also reflect people's living habits and local cultural characteristics. Traditional festivals are important cultural assets in Chinese culture, reflecting the rules of people's lives and their cultural values, as well as connecting generations, individuals and families, and individuals and society.

    Since festivals are often highly correlated with local cultural characteristics, these local cultures are important life experiences for young children. The teacher should start from the life experience of the children, follow their natural curiosity and exploration and help them observe and feel the things around them. In the process of personally participating in social and cultural activities and festivals, experience the meaning of these activities, and proactively interpret the information in real-life situations and establish the interaction between individuals and the environment. By providing children with diverse social and cultural activities, the teacher guides them to connect with previous experience and integrate new experiences to learn the meaning of festivals and life.

    节庆是百姓在长远的生活经验中所积累保留的重要日子,这些重要的日子通常会与当地的自然、社会环境有着密切的关系。随着四季变换,不同的时节反映出不同的节令意义,而这当中也体现了人们的生活习惯与当地的文化特色。传统节庆是华人文化中的重要文化资产,反映了人们生活的经验法则与蕴含的文化价值,同时连结各世代之间,个人与家庭,以及个人与社会。

    由于节庆通常与当地文化特色具有相当高度的关联,这些当地文化对于幼儿来说就是重要的生活经验。老师应根据幼儿天生好奇、探索的特质,从其生活经验出发,帮助幼儿从中观察、感受周遭的人事物。在亲身参与社会文化活动、节庆活动的过程中,体验这些活动的意义,并能主动解读生活情境中的讯息,建立个人与环境互动关系。老师藉由提供幼儿多样的社会文化活动经验,引导他们连结旧经验、整合新经验,以体验节庆与生活的意义。

    “一带一路”视野下的汉语师资培训策略——从新加坡“先研—后证—再教” 培训模式谈起

    In the educational vision of “the Silk Road Economic Belt and the 21st-Century Maritime Silk Road” ("One Belt, One Road" for short) construction, countries can work together, learn from each other, seek common interests in research and training, and build a "One Belt, One Road" Chinese education community. The educational concept is bound to be constantly changing in this new era of open cooperation. We have evolved from a teacher-centered classroom to a student-centered teaching and learning approach. A variety of new teaching methods that teach students in accordance with their aptitude and adapt to the times have also emerged. Contemporary Chinese teachers must keep abreast of the times and constantly input new concepts of education and teaching to better export teaching strategies and methods for students and classrooms. Under the background of such training, the National Institute of Education, which is responsible for the on-the-job training of all Chinese teachers from pre-school to high school in Singapore, and the Singapore Centre for Chinese Language, have upheld the original training concept and strategy of "Research - Validation - Train" in Chinese teacher training. The article focuses on the strategy and model of "integrating research and teaching", and is based on other related research and education and teaching units under the "One Belt, One Road" perspective.

    在"一带一路"建设的教育愿景中,各国可携手合作,互学互鉴,在研究和培训方面谋求共同的利益,构建"一带一路"华文教育共同体。教育理念在这个共商共建,开放合作的新时代肯定也不断地在改变。我们已经从过去以教师为主的"一言堂",进化为以学生为中心的教与学。各种因材施教、因时制宜的新教学法也大量涌现。当代的华文教师必须与时并进,不断地输入教育新知和教学新概念,方能更好地为学生和课堂输出教学策略和方法。在这样的培训大背景底下,负责新加坡从学前到高中所有华文教师在职培训的国立教育学院以及新加坡华文教研中心,秉持了独创的"先研—后证—再教"的培训理念与策略,展开汉语师资培训。文章重点介绍"研证教合一"的策略和模式,以资其他"一带一路"视域下的相关专题研究及教育教学单位参考。

    Constructing A system of irregularities: The poetry of Bei Dao, Yang Lian and Duoduo
    (Cambridge Scholars Publishing, 2016)

    This book investigates the poetics of three of the most internationally contemporary Chinese poets – Bei Dao, Yang Lian, and Duoduo – who were all exiled from China after the 1989 Tiananmen student movement. Their poetry was later to be labeled ‘Misty Poem’ (Menglongshi). This book examines three aspects of the ‘Mistiness’ of the poets’ oeuvre: the socio-historic background where Misty poets live and write; imagery; and linguistic elements. After first identifying the roots of Mistiness, this book identifies imagistic and linguistic clues in order to construct a hermeneutical system that examines the irregularities of the Misty poetics and appreciates the polysemy of the poets’ works. The poem’s evocativeness is unveiled, and the irregularity of the poetry’s Mistiness is established as its most powerful linguistic and imagistic aspect. The book then places the three poets' different misty characteristics into contrast: Bei Deo’s twisted imagery and elliptical syntax, Yang’s imagery in a classically-inspired syntax, and Duoduo’s integration of images into a rhythmic syntax.

    本书以三位国际知名的中国诗人北岛,杨炼以及多多的作品集为研究对象。这三位诗人均于1989 年天安门事件后流落异国, 其诗作后被称为“朦胧诗”。本书从三个角度考察他们的作品中的“模糊性”, 这三个角度分别是:朦胧诗人生活以及写作的社会历史背景;意象;以及语言要素。本书首先识别出模糊性的根源,然后辨别意向及语言中的线索,从而构造出可用来赏析朦胧诗作中的不规则现象以及一词多义现象的注释系统。回忆在诗作中被唤醒,朦胧中蕴含的不规则性被塑造,成为诗作中最有力的语言与意向角度。这本书随之将三位诗人不同的朦胧特点加以比对:北岛诗作中扭曲的意向和简略的句法,杨炼诗作中启迪于经典的意向和句法,以及多多诗作中意向与韵律句法的结合。

    Analysis of the learner content creation process in a 1:1 seamless idiom learning environment

    This paper reports a pilot study on mobile-assisted language learning that focused on both creative learner output and seamless learning. In learning Chinese idioms, students proactively used smartphones on a 1:1 basis to take photos in their daily lives, subsequently in-class or online sharing and discussions took place, enhancing the students’ understanding in the proper usage of the idioms. Our analysis of the student artefacts in both product- and process-oriented aspects reveals the students’ cognitive process and learning strategies during the course of content creation. The students’ ongoing, open-ended, personal-to-social meaning making process and learner-created authentic content have indeed shown some indicators of seamless language learning and induction-based peer learning that has the potential of transforming language learning into an authentic learning experience.
