Spirit of Jade
[The main aim]: In this project, some basic features of Qinghai Kunlun Jade are exposed. From those points of penetration, we understand the extensive and profound Jade culture in China and appreciate its connotation. With the cooperation among group members, the students can improve their ability to analyze and solve the problems.
[Course Standard]: Comprehensive study of Chinese after class. With the reference to Course Standard of Chinese in primary school, combining with the textbook and materials held by group members, we make a study and researches to expand the students thought and enhance their cognizing competence.
[Predicted outcome]: Members primarily learn the methods and procedures of obtaining certain information by using the resources available and group cooperation. They communicate with each other, explore the culture and share the materials through network.
They are fostered to respect other’s achievements and realize the importance of intellectual property rights. Every quotation is marked with its origin. Students can write down their thoughts and reflections in order to practice their writing skills and expressions.
[Resources needed]: Geological museum nearby, experts in jade, books concerned and commercial activities concerning jade.
[Significance]: Through these activities, the students make good use of the resources in hand and master certain relative knowledge to improve their understanding, analyzing and problem-solving ability. Realizing the power and merits of group cooperation, students are fostered to use network and the platform of Thinkquest to explore the given subject, so that they can be familiar with every tool provided on the platform and use them properly and correctly. Using the network tools which shorten the distance of regions and provide communication with friends all over the world, students enjoy the convenience of e-communication and e-learning. Through advertising the project, we want to hand down Chinese jade culture and influence other students to know the significance of network study and to be involved actively in it. In the process, the communication among city and rural schools can be strengthened and their gaps can be bridged.
