收到成績報告的那天上午約十點,Damon就已經打電話給O少問些事情,順便炫耀一下他的成績(Damon說英文和科學都拿E,但壓根沒提數學)。當時O少還沒收到報告,再加上我們太了解Damon和他媽的個性,所以沒有隨之起舞。下午看到報告後,我對O少這次的成績還算滿意。至少數學和科學都達到我的要求-Merit。其實他的Science可以更好,光看老師的評語就知道他沒有盡全力,所以老師才給他Merit而不是Excellence。不過看到EnglishLiterature Essays那項拿到Not Achieved心裡還是怪怪的。雖然事先知道問題是出在他那篇英詩賞析(O少為此吃盡苦頭),等於已打過預防針,但總覺得還是需要和英文老師瀑布女士再溝通,以便了解O少在那方面需要加強及改進。所以我跟O少說我需要安排時間和瀑布女士晤談(Parent Teacher Interview)O少一聽,面有難色,他說成績單上沒註明他必須去<註一>,而且他自己覺得沒什麼問題,認為沒有必要去。我告訴O少,我只想了解他目前的學習是否遇到瓶頸,如何改善和未來努力的方向。我還強調我只要求這一科目,因為其他科目如日文、social studyO少的成績剛好過關(就是拿到Achieved,少數拿到Merit),但因為不是很重要,所以我沒有很挑剔。O少知道他老媽我的暴君個性,一旦我決定的事,想要改變很難,只好摸著鼻子,乖乖地答應我,一開學就會和瀑布女士敲時間。

他老爸則覺得O少這樣的成績差強人意(他老爸係以台灣的標準來比)!哇,他老爸的標準比我還高耶,我都不敢這樣要求,看來他老爸得調整一下心態囉!至於晤談情形如何,就下回分解囉!

 

<註一>

如果校方認為成績太差、課堂表現太壞、出席紀錄欠佳等,會在成績單上說明原因,並要求家長一定要向相關科目的老師登記晤談時間。

  • O少已經有媽媽注意著了,那個做爹的還在緊張個啥啊? hahahaha......

    成績OK啦,妳看Damon還趕著來問呢!
    不再迷糊就好了.
  • 我現在採取無為而治,這可是經過一番掙扎呢! O少現在的功課由他自己全權負責,我完全不過問,他必須自己去摸索,學習如何掌控自己的學習,目前so far so OK!

    我還沒把事情寫全呢!話說隔兩天上班,就是上星期一,Maria問我O少有無收到學年主任的信,我說沒有,她趕緊把信拿出來現,信上大意說恭喜Damon表現優異,值得稱許.她還拿給副校長和校長看,真是夠了!
    但我則對晤談結果很滿意,請靜待下篇.

  • 考試一定有一些科目好一些壞,
    我就是數學好,
    英文....慘...
  • 數學好,不錯呀!

    英文嘛,其實我在高中時也其慘無比,甚至畢業考還補考,沒想到現在人卻在國外,天天得聽英文,說英文,不知道這是不是懲罰? :D
