In this Chinese class, May Shen’s 10th -11th graders from the Ursuline Academy of Dallas, Texas, are learning the unit "Chinese New Year". This lesson focuses on the eve and the first day of Chinese New Year.
In this video, you can see how the teacher has presented the information effectively and maximized the learning. The teacher used a zooming-in strategy to go from a whole-piece narration to individual new words instead of teaching the new words one by one without any context. In order to reinforce the learning and engage the students, the teacher has designed some tasks and activities that require students to integrate speaking and reading and use the new language items.
Watch Chinese language teacher May Shen guided her students to learn language and culture about Chinese New Year.
