Writing Stories into a Beginning Language Learner Curriculum

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Reaching cultural literacy and language proficiency requires that learners actively process language in many contexts, continuously experiencing how language and culture fit together. Participants at this presentation will explore a four-step process for designing early pedagogical readers, connecting students' own-cultures to culture from the target language, while supplementing curriculum needs.

Upper School Chinese Teacher, Iolani School
Hi everyone! I'm currently teaching middle school and high school Chinese at 'Iolani School in Honolulu. It wasn't until a few years ago that I started teaching Chinese through stories customized to my students' interests. I have since noticed that teaching through customized stories has helped my students reach higher levels of proficiency and rendered the learning process more fun and engaging.
