Part of a free webinar series - Global Learning for Educators
The most robust, dynamic, and successful language programs connect language learning with other interdisciplinary and authentic learning—within the school and out in the wider world. Through Asia Society's new website, China and Globalization, you can access a framework and interactive materials for teachers and students to take part in this kind of learning. Chinese language and Social Studies teachers alike will find this site to be a valuable resource. Join us for an introduction to China and Globalization and to hear from a Chinese teacher who has used these units in her classroom and expanded them to suit the proficiency levels, interest areas, and dynamics of her students.
