培養學生的創新能力 the Creator of every detail of mankind. Therefore, no two students are exactly alike; each has a unique story to tell. Applied English is a freshman course, so many students have never before given an English presentation. As students begin to prepare their presentations, several fundamental lessons need to be taught and practiced first to guide them through the process. One technique that really impacts students is viewing video clips comparing great presentations and terrible ones. Talking about those differences helps students to plan, organize and present their information. I also encourage students to research creative methods and technologies that would be appropriate and add interest and value to their presentations. One of the best presentations I have seen was given by Hsuan, a married student with two grown children. She combined various creative methods that thoroughly revealed who she was. Hsuan first introduced herself in
a slide presentation of her childhood and teen years, describing those who played important roles in her life. Next, she showed slides of her love story – how she met her husband and the places they had traveled together. She included photos of her children growing up, accompanied by soft background music. After that, she surprised the class with an entertaining personal video in which her daughter described what kind of mother she was. This video captivated the entire class. To conclude her slide presentation, Hsuan illustrated her favorite foods, hobbies, likes and dislikes, and ended with her present-day life as a first-year student at Christ’s College. Hsuan’s work is a great example of how students in Applied English have incorporated outstanding and innovative approaches into their oral presentations in order to demonstrate individual creativity.
