​Teaching Chinese with Authentic Cultural Texts and Materials

Jun 18, 2016

Allison Lai, University of Scranton

This workshop introduces participants to the various ways of using authentic cultural texts and audio/video materials in Chinese language classrooms. Following the ACTFL guidelines, we will discuss the selection and sequencing of authentic cultural materials for students at different proficiency levels. We will illustrate how to use authentic materials to design interactive reading and listening comprehension tasks and create speaking and writing activities. We will examine some useful resources to find authentic materials for teaching Chinese. We plan on having a swap-shop session, so we invite participants to bring their own learner-centered activities that incorporate authentic cultural materials to share with others.  
Registration is free for all participants, however there is limited seating.
