Institution: Wiseman Education – Language Out Loud program, sponsored by ThinkSeries Hong Kong
Facilitator: Doris Sommer and, Clement Chung
Sessions: Five
Text: Maxim Gorky’s My Childhood


Before school started in September, Doris Sommer and Clement Chung facilitated a 5-day intensive workshop with teachers from Shanghai. They used the school’s chosen text, Maxim Gorky’s My Childhood to illustrate 1. Integrate skill sets, 2. Play, and 3. Customize activities. Principal Bai, head of Shanghai Wenlai Middle School shared some reflections: “I discovered that language is only the medium. What we experienced and gained was the improvement of concepts, protocols, and rationale; I thought two hours would be long, but later I discovered that it went very quickly, and when it finished, I thought it was not enough. It shows that the activities were exciting and fun, welcoming and catering for diversity, lighting sparks for learners, creating an embracing atmosphere for learning and appreciation.
