Thanks to the SUSI program provided by US government , i had a chance to learn curriculum building given by Dr. Lawrence. This session targeted on the individual curriculum idea we have been inspired to pursue. In this workshop, we were encouraged to do collaborative learning.
After lunch break, Dr Beverly Ann Chin, a chair of English Department and Director of English Teaching Program at the University of Montana, talked about reading strategies that improve students’critical thinking .The seven strategies given by Dr Beverly were very useful for my profession . Moreover, it encouraged critical ,creative thinking and reading that address the diverse interests,needs and abilities of students.
After finishing these interesting sections, we were free to work on our academic research project. I think that most of the scholars went to the library for their projects.
Last but no least, i learned a great deal of knowledge on curriculum building and reading strategies that i have to bring back to my native land and share to my colleagues who did not have a change to study in USA.
