Abstract

正當香港仍為中小學應否推行小班教學躊躇不前之際,香港的幼稚教育在過去 10年已逐步由大班教學走向多元化的課堂教學模式-即全班教學、分組活動和小組教學的「三環式」結構。師生比例的改善和教師專業的進修,給香港幼兒教師重新檢視課室空間的調配,為改良教學法提供了契機,一方面既可保持學生群體交往的機會,而另一方面也可透過小組學習,增加了學生的參與和思考交流。從教室觀察所得,學習支援的性質確有不同。小組教學的成效還有待研究的發現去確定,但可以說的是它提高了有思考交流的對談和討論的可能性。
While Hong Kong has been considering whether to implement small-class teaching in the elementary and middle schools, Hong Kong’s preschool education in the past 10 years has gradually moved from mainly whole class teaching to the application of a variety of teaching modes ─ the “three-fold structure”: whole class teaching, free choice group activities, and group teaching. The enhanced teacher-student ratio and teacher’s professional development have enabled Hong Kong kindergarten teachers to review the allocation of classroom space, and has provided good opportunities for the improvement of teaching methods. On the one hand, the opportunity for social interactions between large group of students has been maintained, yet on the other hand, student’s participation and opportunity for sustained interaction and discussion has been made possible in small group teaching. From classroom observations obtained, the nature of learning support has changed. Although the effect of group teaching is under still investigation, one aspect is certain ─ group teaching has facilitated the exchange of ideas and discussions among children and teachers.
