"We CONNECT the TALENT with the DREAM"

October Event Highlights: 



DREAM Trip to Miyun 

During the National holiday week, the DREAM students and four members of ABC staff went on a two-day trip to Miyun. This was the first trip to Miyun for all DREAM students and there was a sense of excitement as the coach left the centre of Beijing. The first day was spent hiking around Heilongtan and on the second day, the group explored Taoyuan valley. On each day, the scenery was beautiful and included a variety of mountains, waterfalls and lakes. The team encouraged and supported each other during both days and group morale remained high even on the more demanding parts of the hike. During the evening, the group ate together and joked together, sharing stories and taking it in turns to sing songs. The trip was an enjoyable vacation for all and a great way to experience breath-taking scenery, enjoy time with friends and celebrate the National holiday. 


 

TALENT Second Volunteer training
On the 15th October 2014, thirty eight volunteers met at the New Oriental overseas department in Guomao for the Second Volunteer training. A mock class activity was arranged to demonstrate good teaching skills and discuss how lessons learned could be applied in ABC classrooms. Volunteers were able to share their highlights of the term in a group discussion and raise any issues they had been experiencing during teaching, which were discussed and resolved as a group. Photography volunteers shared personal highlights of the term so far, which left volunteers reflecting on their own highlights of the term. The evening ended with an introduction to the TALENT graduation and volunteers left the event feeling excited about the graduation in a few weeks’ time. Overall, the evening was a great opportunity to encourage dialogue between volunteers about challenges faced in the classroom and discuss how to resolve them. At ABC, the practice of sharing successes and discussing the best way to approach challenges is believed to be the most effective way to prepare volunteers for their teaching experience.
