“Plan for Better Teaching” (PBT) is a short course designed for in-service Chinese language teachers to learn best practices for standards-based classrooms. Participants will discuss key concepts and examine issues related to curriculum development, instruction, and assessment. By engaging in a lesson plan project, participants will develop skills and strategies for implementing the ACTFL Standards and the ACTFL Core Practices in their own classrooms. They will also examine different assessment tasks and analyze student language production to see how they can refine their instruction to move their students into higher levels of linguistic and cultural proficiency.

As continuation of previous year, this course welcomes both new and previous participants. They will receive a professional development certificate jointly issued by NYS Language RBERN at NYU and China Institute upon successful completion of the course.

* Under certain circumstances China Institute can waive professional development program fees for educators and college students pursuing teaching degrees. For more information about these opportunities please contact Mr. Yongqiang Lin at 212-744-8181 ext. 141 or by email at [email protected]

The Confucius Institute at China Institute ([email protected]) and the various programs it offers are made possible through the generous support of the Confucius Institute Headquarters – with additional support from other private and public foundations.
