Towering green mountains, green pines and cypresses.
It is late autumn, and when walking in Shaoshan, in Mao Zedong Square, Comrade Mao Zedong’s Former Residence, Comrade Mao Zedong Memorial Hall and other places, from time to time I see groups of young people wearing school uniforms and holding red flags, adding a touch of vitality like the warm sunshine of spring to this fertile red soil. .

These students, from primary and secondary schools in Hunan Province, came to carry out the “My Shaoshan Trip” red study tour.
In order to thoroughly implement the spirit of the 20th National Congress of the Party and fully implement the spirit of General Secretary Xi Jinping’s important instructions on “making good use of red resources, carrying forward red traditions, and inheriting red genes”, in accordance with the relevant requirements of the Provincial Party Committee and the Provincial Government, In April this year, Hunan launched the “My Shaoshan Trip” red study program for primary and secondary school students in Hunan Province, making full use of the red resources in the hometown of great men. Through the demonstration effect of Shaoshan red study, it will lead the province’s red education and red study to flourish, and continue to promote red studies. The seeds are sown into the hearts of young people.
As of November 16, our province has organized 83 batches of 70,171 students to go to Shaoshan to receive red baptism and draw spiritual strength.
All parties collaborate,
Create a red gold-lettered signboard for research and study
At 4 o’clock in the afternoon on October 31, the autumn sun was in the sky, and the bronze statue of Comrade Mao Zedong standing on Mao Zedong Square was shining and solemn.
In front of the bronze statue, a queue of nearly a thousand students was solemnly holding a study opening ceremony. They are research students from four high schools including Hanshou County No. 1 Middle School, Hanshou County No. 2 Middle School, Hanshou County No. 5 Middle School, and Hanshou County Vocational High School.
This is a dialogue across the century – “Without the Communist Party, there would be no New China…” The sonorous and powerful chorus shows the children’s determination to follow the party; “Youth have great ambitions and make contributions at the right time. Please rest assured the party, A strong country has me!” The solemn oath shows the belief in pursuing dreams for the future.
Subsequently, the student representatives presented a flower basket to the bronze statue of Comrade Mao Zedong. All teachers and students presented flowers to the bronze statue and walked around the statue to pay homage to the great man’s demeanor and express their infinite admiration and deep remembrance of Comrade Mao Zedong.
The solemn and enthusiastic opening ceremony gave the children a full sense of ceremony. Zhang Chunjia, a first-year student at No. 5 Middle School in Hanshou County, was particularly excited: “This is an experience I have never had before. I have sung this song countless times, but today I sang it very loudly when I stood in front of the bronze statue of Chairman Mao.”
The red gene is passed down from generation to generation. The vivid and fiery scene of red study and study is a vivid practice for Hunan to keep in mind General Secretary Xi Jinping’s earnest instructions to dig deep into the “rich ore” of red resources, carry forward the revolutionary tradition, and inherit the red gene.
“Within ten steps, there must be fragrant grass.” Hunan is the “cradle of revolution and the hometown of great men” and an important source of inspiration for the Communist Party of China to build the party, the army, and the government. Every red scenic spot is a vivid classroom where learning is always new. On March 15 this year, Shen Xiaoming, Secretary of the Provincial Party Committee, proposed during a survey in Shaoshan that by organizing red cultural education research, the great spirit of party founding and the original mission of the Communist Party of China should be engraved into the hearts of every child, and red education should be promoted into campus, Enter the classroom, enter the mind.
Promoted from a high position and coordinated by all parties.

In order to ensure the orderly implementation of “My Shaoshan Trip” Red Study, the Propaganda Department of the Provincial Party Committee took the lead and the Provincial Department of Education organized various relevant departments to hold special meetings on multiple occasions to scientifically formulate work plans, coordinate and schedule various preparations, and make every effort to create a national Red Study and a golden brand of ideological and political education for primary and secondary school students across the country.
Curriculum is the core of study. On the basis of in-depth research, multiple experts effectively integrated resources, combined with students’ physical and mental characteristics and receptive abilities, and designed study courses such as dedication ceremonies, combination of exhibitions and teaching, ideological and political courses, theme class meetings, etc., as well as pre-departure and post-departure extensions. Teaching and development assignments, etc., a handbook for study students and teachers has been printed. The Provincial Department of Education organized many expert demonstration meetings and on-the-spot guidance, and repeatedly polished and improved the curriculum and manuals.
Shaoshan City mobilized capable personnel to form a special work team, formulated a ground connection service plan, and strengthened catering, accommodation, connections, medical care, etc. Assure.
On April 13, Xiangtan City launched a pilot project. The Municipal Education Bureau organized local schools to participate in the pilot work. Review meetings were held every night to comprehensively sort out problems and shortcomings, and study and formulate corresponding measures; on May 24, “My Shaoshan “Red Study” for primary and secondary school students in Hunan Province has been officially launched, fully covering students from all over the province, and does not require them to bear any costs.
With so many students coming to Shaoshan, they are still minors, so safety on the road is the bottom line. Traffic police, transportation, highway management and other departments in various places are based on their functions and make every effort to ensure the safe travel and safe study of teachers and students. “We were escorted by traffic police all the way from school to Shaoshan. It really made us feel safe and sacred,” said Pu Junfeng, a first-year student at Shaoyang County No. 2 Middle School.
How long is the appropriate study time? A one-day round trip is obviously too rushed. Two days and one night will definitely require a campsite. The old campus of Shaoshan School, which is only a few hundred meters away from the core attraction Mao Zedong Square, has become the best choice.
But the old campus has been idle for two years, and the facilities and equipment are somewhat outdated. “If you want to do it, you have to do it well!” The person in charge of the ideological and political education practice camp of Shaoshan School introduced to Yan that the Provincial Department of Education has invested more than 20 million yuan in quality improvement and renovation, adding 1,010 beds, which can satisfy the learning needs of 1,000 students at the same time. living needs, and was successfully approved as a national camp.
Strolling around the camp, you can see the multi-functional lecture hall, classrooms, restaurants, sports fields, basketball and volleyball halls, infirmary and other venues that have been given a new look. The “Shaoshan Study Bookstore” that has just been put into use has thousands of books of all kinds on display, and there is an endless stream of students coming to read the books. “There are many books about Mao Zedong that I have never seen before. The more I read, the more I admire Mao Zedong.” said Ding Jiayu, a first-year student of Hanshou County No. 5 Middle School who was reading.
“Prioritizing research is the principle of our research work.” Gao Yang, director of the Provincial Shaoshan Administration Bureau, introduced that in order to allow students to visit and study calmly, special study periods have been specially set up to separate students from ordinary tourists and enter in batches and routes. Comrade Mao Zedong’s former residence, Comrade Mao Zedong Memorial Hall and other places allow learning, thinking and action to run through the entire process of study activities.
Refine your course and let the red culture enter your mind and heart
Study in red, the background color is red, the key is learning.
“In June 1950, when the War to Resist U.S. Aggression and Aid Korea broke out, Mao Anying was the first to sign up to join the Chinese People’s Volunteers… When the country was in trouble and powerful enemies invaded, he stood up resolutely and fought until the last moment of his life…” Special topic in the Comrade Mao Zedong Memorial Hall Mao Anying’s relics in the exhibition area display Mao Anying’s relics that Comrade Mao Zedong has collected for 26 years. The commentator Mao Wanyao told the students affectionately about Mao Anying’s short but great life with the title “Sacrifice on the Road to Rejuvenation – Youth Without Regrets in Defending the Country” life.
“Why did Mao Anying choose to go to the front line to resist U.S. aggression and aid Korea?” “After Mao Anying died, why did Chairman Mao say he had no regrets?” During the explanation, the two questions raised by the instructor Wu Ting to the students caused them to think deeply. Little hands were raised – “Uncle Mao Anying is very brave and not afraid of going to the battlefield.” “He has the motherland in his heart. If the country needs it, he will rush forward.” “In Chairman Mao’s heart, Mao Anying is not only his son, but also the country’s son.” Sons should protect their families and their country.” The resounding answers contained what the students thought and gained after listening to the explanation.
In front of a display cabinet displaying Comrade Mao Zedong’s pajamas, students exclaimed, “There are 73 patches on this pajamas.” The commentator Mao Ling said that this pajamas is just a microcosm of Chairman Mao’s thrifty, hard-working and simple life style. Everyone deeply understood the fine traditions of the older generation of revolutionaries and expressed the need to develop a living habit of “no waste, no comparison, no extravagance”.
In the exhibition area of Comrade Mao Zedong’s bedroom, the books on the former bed are particularly eye-catching. Under the title “Reading for the Great Rejuvenation of the Chinese Nation”, the commentator Yan Taolue told the reading stories of Comrade Mao Zedong and General Secretary Xi Jinping, and educated and guided the students to establish the great goal of studying for the construction of a strong country and the rejuvenation of the nation.
View Long March pictures and learn about the Long March story. “The great Long March spirit is not far away. In the process of poverty alleviation, anti-epidemic and even the great rejuvenation of the Chinese nation, the light of the times bursting out from the Long March spirit can still be seen.” The commentator Pang Xin combined history with reality and discussed with the students The connotation of the Long March spirit allows the blood of the Long March spirit to flow in the bodies of young people in the new era.
In the “Serving the People” exhibition hall, the commentator Li Ying told the story of Zhang Side “leaving his hope for life to his comrades” and told everyone what the spirit of serving the people is. “I will inherit and carry forward the revolutionary spirit of the revolutionary martyrs, study hard, be positive, and serve the motherland.” Liu Bo, a first-year student in Hanshou County No. 5 Middle School, said with deep feeling.
These five lively and connotative on-site ideological and political classes contain the hard work of countless people.
“To make red education enter the brain and heart, ideological and political courses are the key, but it is also a huge challenge.” Liu Jing, a member of the Party Leadership Group and Deputy Director of the Provincial Department of Education, said that we organized experts to conduct in-depth research, have repeated discussions with the Provincial Shaoshan Administration Bureau, and combine Based on the students’ physical and mental characteristics and receptive abilities, 5 teaching locations were selected, 5 ideological and political courses were offered that combined exhibition and teaching, and expert demonstration meetings were held multiple times to repeatedly polish and improve the courses.
To build a good course, it is even more important to teach it well. The instructors from the Provincial Shaoshan Administration Bureau are very familiar with the exhibition hall and are the best candidates to teach these five ideological and political courses. But for docents to be competent teachers, more support is clearly needed. The Provincial Department of Education has repeatedly organized the Provincial Academy of Educational Sciences, the Provincial Party History Exhibition Hall, and some experts from universities and primary and secondary schools to help instructors improve their teaching standards and ensure the effectiveness of their teaching through intensive training and on-site observation.
“Although I have been a commentator here for 10 years, this is my first time as a research teacher, and it is also a huge challenge.” Commentator Wu Ting said that in the past, the books she read most were about Chairman Mao, but now she is reading all the time about education. I read books on the topic, and often watch current political news and MOOC micro-course videos online. “Since I am respected as ‘teacher’ by the children, I want to do my best to really make them gain something.”
They also went to Xiangxiang No. 1 Middle School to hold discussions with representatives of teachers and students who had returned from study, listened carefully to their feedback on the course, and upgraded the course again after returning. “For example, when studying, you must not only learn Chairman Mao’s reading methods, but also set the ambition for why you study.” Li Ying, who has been a lecturer for 16 years, said that making the course truly enter the hearts of students is both the original intention and the purpose of studying. Target.
At the Shaoshan City Ideological and Political Education Research and Practice Camp, an ideological and political class with the theme of “It’s time to be in your prime” is held wonderfully every day. Passionate explanations, fascinating VCR playback… Zhang Ying, a teacher at Hunan First Normal University, led the students to review Comrade Mao Zedong’s ambitions through four chapters: “Shaoshan Boy”, “Studying Again and Again”, “Proudly Standing on the Trend” and “Youth of the Era” A touching story about studying, constantly exploring, and leading the people across the country to become the masters of their own country. He also interacted with students on the spot to talk about the mission and responsibilities of contemporary youth.
This ideological and political course, which deeply combines history and reality, was led by the Provincial Department of Education and organized by relevant experts from the Provincial Academy of Educational Sciences, Hunan First Normal College, Hunan Education Television and so on, and took nearly three months to create. Its purpose is to explore the contemporary value and practical significance of Shaoshan’s red resources for the growth of contemporary teenagers, to help teenagers understand the new era they live in, and to guide them to strive to grow into the successors needed for the construction and development of the motherland.
“The story of Mao Zedong taught me to read more, read good books, study intensively, and read widely. He was determined to change the fate of Chinese farmers and change China’s backwardness, and he succeeded.” Senior Grade 1, Shengde School, Linli County After class, student Su Beibei took up a pen and wrote down her thoughts, “‘Every generation comes from history and goes back to history.’ Our generation should not be afraid of wind and rain and forge steel by itself!”
“Inherit the red gene and strive to be a new man of the times” and “study for the great rejuvenation of the Chinese nation”… After the visit, the students held a red-themed class meeting focusing on “what they saw, heard, thought, and thought” during their study in Shaoshan. . The sparks of thought collided fiercely, and the ambition to work hard and serve the motherland became stronger.
The course has also been extended online. The Provincial Shaoshan Administration Bureau invites Peking University, Tsinghua University, Academy of Military Sciences, University of Social Sciences, Hunan University and other universities and institutions to combine “Ideological and Political Courses under Shaoshan” (Season 3) and “My Shaoshan Trip” red research , upgraded and created 20 ideological and political micro courses, allowing students to study independently at any time on the “‘My Shaoshan Trip’ Red Study Platform”.
Extend and expand, red education is always on the road
“Shao travels like stars shining in the night sky, and red stars decorate dreams like the sea. This is the first time in my life that I have set foot in this red land, and I have gained a lot. When I stopped at Mao Zedong Square, waves of warmth surged in my heart, and I realized the legacy of a great man of a generation. mental strength.”
“Life is like a button, which must be buttoned from the beginning. From the deeds of great men, I feel the majestic power of the red spirit through history, and I also strengthen my determination to study for the great rejuvenation of the Chinese nation.”
“Qia is a classmate of a young man who is in his prime, full of scholarly energy, and is full of enthusiasm for Fang Qiu. As teenagers, we must be determined, long-term, and ambitious from a young age, and combine our life ideals with the Chinese dream.”
The red study guestbook is filled with the students’ thoughts after participating in the study. Between the lines, there is determination to inherit the red gene and be a good successor in the new era.

“My Shaoshan Trip” red study is an ideological edification and spiritual baptism. Although the time is short, it has far-reaching influence.
“The study course was short and concise, with physical object presentations, historical narrations, interactive questions, and group discussions, which really resonated with students’ thoughts.” Chen Hongfei, vice principal in charge of moral education at Hengyang No. 8 Middle School, said that after returning from the study, students actively participated Thematic handwritten newspapers and essay collection activities fully demonstrate your achievements.
“It is very meaningful and necessary to organize students to carry out ‘My Shaoshan Trip’ red study.” Li Renfei, vice principal of Linyi Middle School in Chenzhou City, believes that in the past, most of the red education was limited to textbooks, and moving ideological and political education to Shaoshan will allow Students pay equal attention to “knowledge and action”, and ideological and political education becomes “living”. In the next step, the school will organize all high school students to go to Shaoshan to receive the baptism of the revolutionary spirit.
Although the red study journey is over, red education is always on the way.
Shaoshan Zhentai Primary School is one of the first schools in the province to carry out red study. As a school located in the hometown of great men, it has unique advantages in ideological and political education. “After returning from study, we organized students to carry out a 5-minute red story propaganda activity every day, combining revolutionary culture with humanistic education that cultivates students’ good habits, noble sentiments, and excellent character.” Mao Weixia, the principal of the school, said that the school also passed the Party Day Activities, red lectures, ideological and political classes and other forms focus on telling Chinese stories, original aspiration stories, leader stories, hometown stories, etc., to train students to become inheritors of the red gene and recommenders of the beautiful Shaoshan.
At the beginning of September, Loudi No. 1 Middle School organized first-grade students to participate in the red study. The school held Mao Zedong’s poetry sharing sessions and thought sharing activities in class units. At the end of September, in conjunction with the upcoming National Day, the school held “Youth with ambition, strong country with me” Theme essay competition. “In the next step, the school will carry out research activities on a regular basis and organize students to go to Shaoshan, Ziquejie, Anjiang Agricultural School and other places in batches to build the ‘walking classroom’ ideological and political education brand of Loudi No. 1 Middle School.” said the head of the political education department of the school. Wang Yunbao said.
What I received was a revolutionary traditional education, which brought about a change in my spiritual outlook.
For Liu Yucheng, a second-grade student in Class 2301 of Tianjin No. 1 Middle School, the most unforgettable thing about his trip to Shaoshan was a large display cabinet of Comrade Mao Zedong in Zhongnanhai Juxiang Bookstore in his later years. Half of the wall was covered with various books. cover. When he participated in the school essay competition, he wrote: “By reading a lot of books, Chairman Mao found the correct path to save the country and the people. As a young man in the new era, we must study hard and use our true talents to practice the purpose of ‘serving the people’.” ”
“Chairman Mao is the leader of the party and the country, but he lives such a frugal life. Especially when I saw his pajamas with 73 patches, I was greatly shocked.” A student from class 2301, a first-year senior middle school in Loudi City Peng Yanhui said that although her teachers and parents taught her to be thrifty from an early age, she did not take action. For example, she pursued famous brands when buying clothes and bought more. After returning home from Shaoshan, she organized her wardrobe and packed some clothes that were still in relatively good condition and put them in the community’s clothing donation cabinet, hoping to help those in need. “As long as the daily necessities are suitable and sufficient, I will I will pay more attention to my own abilities and make myself more connotative.”
“After participating in the study, the students’ appearance became brighter and more positive.” Hu Zhenhua, director of moral education at Shaoyang No. 2 Middle School, said that the school will launch the 28th Art Festival and Alumni Homecoming Day on November 19. During the event A large number of student volunteers are needed for guidance and daily service. In the past, when the school organized large-scale activities, the students who participated in volunteer services were mainly in the first year of high school. However, judging from the current list of volunteers recruited, the proportion of sophomores who have participated in the red study program has increased significantly, accounting for more than 40% of the total applicants.
Read books with words well to explore the cultural genes of Shaoshan; read books without words well to trace the growth footsteps of great men; read books with words well and guide young people to establish correct values through the red study tour of “My Trip to Shaoshan”. The world outlook, outlook on life, and values must not forget the original intention, keep the mission in mind, and lay a solid foundation in the process of realizing the great rejuvenation of the Chinese nation. Shaoshan is making every effort to create a red study brand that can be replicated and promoted throughout the province and even the country. On July 19, the General Office of the Ministry of Education issued a special document to promote this typical experience nationwide.
My trip to Shaoshan, red shines with youth!
