Depending on its unique and rich “red” (revolutionary) resources, CELAJ has exerted great efforts to establish site-visit teaching model, which focuses on the philosophy that history serves as a teacher of present, and present, of future.
In accordance with the functional demand of the model that “every site should function as a living textbook, and every site-visit class a baptism of spirit,” CELAJ designs its teaching subjects and teaching priorities based on the unique resources of each site-teaching center. In order to promote the teaching effect and induce the trainees’ strong emotional resonance, teaching approaches such as situation simulation, visual images presentation, etc. have been adopted, through which historical events and episodes are reproduced.
Under the guidance of our Party’s fine style of integrating theory with practice, other new forms in social practice teaching have also been developed. For example, in order to help the trainees have a deeper understanding of the fundamental realities of our country, and therefore enhancing their awareness that the Party is built for the public and that it exercises state power for the people, various social investigations have been conducted in countryside, neighborhoods and businesses, through which they approach closer to the realities of life, and to people, their abilities of analyzing and solving practical problems being greatly improved.
