The study was to learn how an After-school Caring Service Teacher program for grade 2 students in an elementary school through the design and implementation of a multiplied teaching program, to enrich the service contents of the after-school caring service. The research subjects of the study were the grade 2 students of an elementary school in Taipei City, who were joining an after-school caring service program of that school.
The research method adopted in the study was action research. The researcher with her partners and the supervising administrator, from the three pre-set reference courses of“Picture Books of Character”,“the Joyful Physical Fitness”and“the Creative Aesthetic Labor”, formed a series of actions including the design, implementation, assessment, review and recommendations, with the hopes that the students, in addition to the making of the homework and subject guidance, would explore their extra-curriculum activities to promote the growth of character and to raise the interest of learning and the enlightenment of creativeness. We also hope that with this study, we can further understand the problems the teachers facing and their solutions, and we might gradually constitute a usable and effective after-school caring service program through reflection and correction. We concluded our data-analysis as follows:
1.The diversified after-school caring service program would help to raise the percentage of homework-completion.
2.A proper time-frame for the after-school caring service would take both the homework-making and diverse learning into consideration.
3.The growth of the character education could be seen through the teaching with picture books presenting the promotions and growths of seven item about characters.
4.The character education with the adoption of joyful physical fitness teaching is effective in cultivating the respect, fairness and teamwork spirit of the students.
5.The teaching of creative aesthetic labor had greatly helped in raising the students’ interest toward learning and enlightening the students’ creativity.
6.Due to the heavy tasks for teachers in after-school caring service, teachers would only be able to realize targets of their program-designing in the form of group.
Based on the above-mentioned conclusion, the researcher would like to propose concrete suggestions here as the reference for teachers, administrators and future researchers.
