  • June 26, 2014June 30, 2014: Course II: Aligning Common Core Standards in the Standards-Based Classrooms for Intermediate Students (face-to-face)
  • Chinese Culture Center, El Monte, CA

Course 1: Chinese instruction at the intermediate level has appeared to be bottleneck for the learning of Chinese. Based on teachers' past teaching experiences, they will bring to the discussion the challenges and problems they have seen for teaching and learning at this level. To focus on the classroom implementation, the participating teachers will examine unit designs, lesson plans, and classroom activities to see what works and what does not work in intermediate-level classrooms. Course 2: The goal of this course is to help the participating Chinese teachers effectively and efficiently implement the Common Core State Standards and the National Foreign Language Standards in the Standards-Based classrooms. The participants will discuss the significance of these two sets of standards and find out how they can be integrated to guide the Chinese language instruction, which emphasizes the knowledge and skills necessary for success in the 21st-century global economy and society. To internalize the learning, the participants will analyze the existing textbooks, curricula, and language instruction used in the Chinese language schools. They will also work in collaborative groups to create units and instructional and assessment activities that are aligned to the Common Core Sate Standards and the National Foreign Language Standards.
