Recipients of the “National Outstanding Teaching Team” were awarded NT$50,000 and a trophy. The money can be used as an incentive for hard working team members and for other needs to promote the project. Outstanding student models were each awarded NT$6,000 and a trophy. Their excellent achievements will be put on the “Remedial Instruction Implementation Project”website (http://priori.moe.gov.tw/) for municipality and county (city) governments to serve as a learning model. Teachers are welcome to join the project and put effort into helping disadvantaged children to learn better.
Many teachers and school administrators devoted themselves to the students. They saw great potential in each student and would not give up on anyone. Teachers plant seeds of hope in children’s hearts and patiently cultivate them. In the long run, students’ learning outcome will grow from seeds into big trees. Disadvantaged students need our care. Hopefully this project inspires more schools to devote resources to disadvantaged students and encourages adaptive teaching strategies and materials. The project spreads love and caring which makes Taiwan a warmer and better place.
