從教師的教學信念看中文科新課程的實施

Implementation of New Chinese Language Curriculum: Perspectives from Teaching Beliefs of Teachers

譚彩鳳(Choi-Fung TAM)

摘要

香港中學中國語文新課程倡議「學生中心」的教學方式,有別於傳統的教學觀,故此,本質化研究旨在探究六位中文教師的教學信念及其對課程實施的影響。研究結果反映教師的教學信念可分為「傳授觀」及「啟發觀」兩大取向:「傳授觀」與新課程的理念有不少分歧之處,阻礙了新課程的實施;相反「啟發觀」與新課程的理念大致相符,能落實新課程。本文建議要成功實施新課程,必須持續地發展教師專業課程,以改變教師的信念及教學實務。

關鍵詞:教學信念;課程實施;中國語文

Abstract

The new secondary Chinese Language curriculum in Hong Kong promotes learner-centred teaching, which is different from traditional teaching conception in the past. Therefore, this qualitative study aims to explore the teaching beliefs of six Chinese language teachers and their influence on curriculum implementation. The results revealed that teaching beliefs of teachers could be divided into two main orientations of transmission and heuristics. It also indicated that the existing beliefs of transmission-oriented teachers were incongruent with the underlying philosophy of the new curriculum thus hampered its implementation. But the beliefs of heuristics-oriented teachers were in line with the new curriculum, which facilitated its successful implementation. It is suggested that the key to successful curriculum implementation is continuous teacher development, which fosters change of beliefs and practices of teachers.
