麦春华的文学阅读群

编者按:前不久在泉港一中调研,听麦春华老师一节高三英语课,课后交换意见,她手中一部英文原版小说The Fifty Shades of Darker引发我的好奇,跟她聊起文学阅读话题,得知她正在阅读此书。交谈中发现了鲜为人知的“秘密”:她组建了一个“阅读沙龙”,各成员每天阅读英文小说,并在微信中交流阅读体会,一年多来同伴们已读了很多部英文小说。在喧嚣浮躁的时代,她默默地耕耘一片“麦田”;在碎片化阅读时代,他们静静地默读长篇小说。这种精神和行为可敬可嘉,值得仿效。当即,约请这位“群主”写一些文字,描述阅读活动的经历和体会,她欣然答应。昨日她发来一篇短文,坦陈自己对阅读的渴望与求知的热情,说明共同体的成员结构及运作方式,开列了部分读过的书目,晒出了群友读后讨论的几段话,表达了“麦田守望者”的淡泊的信念、美好的期待和幸福的追求。

麦老师文字传递着满满的正能量,读来沁人心脾。本期博客刊发其文,与诸位同仁分享。

走进了阅读世界,你就是幸福的

泉港一中     麦春华

“疏食饮水,子安知我不乐?荷锄而读,吾正欲济乎沧。”这是我自撰的一副对联,用来勉励自己。

读书是我从小到大一直没有丢弃的兴趣,大学毕业时,同学问我有什么愿望,我说最好能当一辈子的读书人。看似荒诞不经,却在数年之后断断续续依然伴随于我。“切莫苦苦追寻,但种因,勿问果,待到蓦然回首时,灯火阑珊处即是天涯。”

有幸认识黄教授,向他面对面取经学习,无意中我包里的一本英语读物引起他的注意。他问我怎么读英文小说,我说:“和几个朋友约定,走到哪有时间就读到哪,每天定量完成阅读任务。”

工作也罢,工作侵占了个人消遣时间也罢,忙忙碌碌的工作之余,惊讶地发现,手机的便携化,导致社交媒体无孔不入,几乎占用了我一大半的碎片化时间。于是,几个相同爱好的朋友一商量,一个小小的读书线上沙龙就初具雏形。

该沙龙以微信朋友圈为媒介建群,招募原版英语阅读的爱好者。设群的初衷是督促每个群成员利用碎片化时间,每个成员每天完成30页原版文学阅读,并及时上线记录当天的完成情况,同时对当天阅读做一个简要的概括性个性化英文总结,内容不限,字数不限。另外,线上群友之间,交流分享阅读体会,线下易书,互通有无,好不乐乎。目前群成员28人,涉及各个行业,有在校大学生、外贸业务员、英语教师、以及慕名进群的英语学习爱好者等等,其中在校英语教师居多。建群一年有余,群友已分享的读物内容丰富,涉及小说,诗歌,演讲集,自传等等,多为英语国家现当代流行篇目,语言较为朴实、简易。由于时间久了,所读书目记不全,现把新近群里聊天记录的部分书归纳如下:

Heart Beat by Sharon Creech(《心跳》,3万词)

Not that Kind of Girl by Lena Dunham(《不是那种女孩》,15万词)

The Catcher in the Rye by J. D. Salinger(《麦田里的守望者》,16万词)

其中,Michael Schofield写的一书January First,超过5位群友共同阅读过,所以讨论较为广泛,现摘选2位群友的读后感:

Wow...I couldn’t put this book down...however...while my heart breaks for this family, I couldn’t help but get this skeevy feeling that this father is very comfortable in his “martyr” role. And it also seemed that he AND his wife might have mental issues of their own that have contributed to their daughters problems. After finishing it, I searched around on the internet and found some very interesting things. One is the fathers blog started several years ago. In between updates on his daughter are rambling messages about movies and other random things as well as solicitations for money to help his family pay the rent. They have pimped her story out to all kinds of media outlets including major newspapers, Oprah, etc. Mom has gotten herself a radio show. And there is 5 part web documentary on YouTube that disturbs me too in that it seems everyone is acting for the cameras. Now they are saying their younger son is schizophrenic too. It is like they are making careers out of their children’s mental illnesses....The more I read about and watch this family, the more I am convinced that there is a psychiatric Munchhausen-By-Proxy going on here. —From Yoyo

From the moment I started reading this book, I couldn’t put it down—almost started and finished it within the same day (if only life didn’t get in the way!). I was fascinated with the ugly world of Schizophrenia. Told in a loosely written diary format, we follow Michael Schofield as he lives with his five year old daughter- January, and tries to figure out what is causing her bouts with madness. The struggles this family had to face not only with their daughter losing control of her surroundings, but also having another baby which causes Jani undue distress, and reading about the lack of support the health care system has when it comes to mental health snatched my sympathy. I was just as frustrated as Michael was with the hospitals that couldn't understand what was wrong with Jani. The school system couldn’t handle Jani’s outbursts. What is a parent to do in these circumstances? I’m not sure if I could hold it together as well as Michael and Susan seemed to do.

The only downside for me was how selfish at times Michael seemed. He was quick to blame Susan for things that she wasn't responsible for. While this constantly frustrated me, I did appreciate the honesty of Michael admitting this to the readers at times. Maybe that makes him a stronger narrator? Not sure – but was frustrated with him and how he handled situations at times. Then I have to remember this is his REAL life and who am I to judge? —From Linda

至此,群内阅读气氛良好,交流活跃,一部分群友能够坚持每天读书。原版阅读涉及历史,宗教等背景,如何选择适合自己阅读能力的读物,避开词汇难度太大的作品以免挫伤阅读体验感,也许每个人的答案不一。但是,只要朝着这条文学阅读的道路走下去,我相信群内每个英语学习爱好者或多或少有些收获。我,作为一线英语教师,期望通过长期的阅读,建立个性化书目,并开设一门校本课程,引导高中生课外学习。这种非功利性的阅读,如果恰好能有一天为我的职业生涯开启了一扇窗,那我会多么的喜悦和幸福啊!
