STARTALK Classroom Video - OneWorld Now! - Chinese

Return to STARTALK Classroom Video Collection

This lesson was filmed with a group of students who are taking Chinese I for high school credit. The OneWorld Now! students meet two days after school per week, for a total of three hours per week. For the most part, the students are heritage students who do not speak Mandarin or third generation Chinese-American students who do not speak Chinese. Several of the students also participated in the summer STARTALK program. The instructor Sun Burford has participated in a STARTALK teacher-training program and has worked as a teacher leader in a STARTALK program.
