西方节日成中国奢华派对借口

中国的年轻人觉得西方很多事物很酷、很好玩,包括节日。中国年轻人庆祝的万圣节,感恩节或者圣诞节也失去了原本在西方的意义。

西方節日成中國奢華派對借口

中國的年輕人覺得西方很多事物很酷很好玩,包括節日。中國年輕人慶祝的萬聖節,感恩節或者聖誕節也失去了原本在其發源國家的意義。

What did Mr. K do right?

Teaching Resilience for Success

Teaching Resilience

In the September 19, 2011 education issue of The New York Times Magazine, I was pleasantly surprised to read several articles that identified seemingly counterintuitive ideas about how to prepare students for success. “What if the Secret to Success is Failure?” by Paul Toughy, was about two educators, one independent school head and one charter school leader, who had identified failure as an important ingredient in defining a student’s character. Another story, called “My Family’s Experiment in Extreme Schooling,” by Clifford Levy describes his family’s experience when, as a foreign correspondent in Russia, he and his spouse decided to place their three young children in a local school, where they didn’t know the language and inevitably had to sink or swim. In both articles, a strong theme came through: that in order to bring out the full potential of our children, we must teach them resilience.

最近,首席执行长泰德·米切尔(Ted Mitchell)表示,他的机构专注于支持数字交流工具,这些工具能够增进教师之间创新理念的交流,并为学生提供他们想上但目前上不了的课程。
《华尔街日报》记者Evelyn M. Rusli最近对米切尔进行了采访,就基金目前的一些兴趣和投资进行了讨论。以下是采访内容摘编: Read more…
