NCKU Curriculum Map
1. 2.

This service course recruits NCKU students to help young learners from an elementary school in rural Tainan to learn English through picture books via Internet. The educational objectives are to teach NCKU students how to design lesson plans for on-line tutoring, understand online teaching pedagogy, and practice basic English teaching methodology. NCKU students will also learn various eliciting methods to guide young learners to read and speak English via one-to-one context. The course will use an Internet-based conferencing platform sponsored by the International Rotary Club to conduct the on-line tutoring in a weekly base. The class will meet two hours every week. The first hour is used for on-line tutoring with the students from the partner elementary school in rural Tainan. In the second hour, the instructors will discuss with the NCKU students about the strengths and weakness of their teaching. The class will share teaching materials, experience, and find solutions to the challenges of conducting on-line English tutoring. When completing the course, the NCKU students are expected to reach the service learning objectives of the courses, including understanding the educational contexts, needs, and difficulties of young learners in rural Taiwan.
