Virtual Classroom Video
This online activity was taken from Jessica Tan’s Chinese class at Little Red School House and Elisabeth Irwin High School in New York. The TEQ Online video has nine 11th graders learning Chinese in a remote learning setting.
Using Zoom and Google Slides, Miss Tan conducted this online activity for the students to apply what they had learned about famous Chinese people. In this activity, the students were challenged to take an active role in language application. They were busy reading to obtain information, writing to share what they had read, and talking to express themselves freely. Zoom and Google Slides have made good teaching and learning possible in online classrooms.
