“Plan for Better Teaching” (PBT) is a short course designed for in-service Chinese language teachers to learn best practices in the standards-based classroom. Participants will talk about 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 to implement the standards in their own classrooms. They will also have the opportunity to discuss their work individually with Dr. Wei-ling Wu during mentoring sessions. This course is a continuation of last year’s PBT course. New participants as well as those from previous years are all welcome to sign up for this course. Participants will receive a professional development certificate jointly issued by NYS Language RBERN at NYU and China Institute upon successful completion of the course.
Dr. Wei-ling Wu (吴威玲 ) is a nationally recognized Chinese language educator of American K-12 students and an experienced trainer of teachers. She has served on various national projects for Chinese language instruction and curriculum development. Dr. Wu is also the lead author of a series of Chinese textbooks.
* 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. Matthew Turner at 212-744-8181 ext. 111 or by email at [email protected]. This is made possible through the Confucius Institute at China Institute and the generous support of Hanban – officially known as the “Office of Chinese Language Council International” – with additional support from other private and public foundations.
