Date: Saturday, September 30, 2017
Time: 12:30 PM – 5:00 PM
Venue: University of Washington, Odegaard Undergraduate Library, OUG 136
Cost: Free for CLTA-WA members;

Presenter: Nyan-Ping Bi, Senior Lecturer of the Department of Asian Languages and Literature at the University of Washington

Workshop Description:
Appropriate Levels: K-16 | The workshop will be conducted in Mandarin Chinese.

The workshop will first help its participants examine what criteria should be considered when designing a theme-based unit. It will then facilitate participants in drafting one lesson within the unit. The workshop will provide hands-on practice and enable participants to take away one concrete instructional lesson plan that they can experiment with in class after the workshop. The goals of the workshop are to 1) help participants to conduct inventory checking and to reference available resources before they begin any unit and lesson planning; and 2) to help participants understand and avoid any possible pitfalls between the planning and the delivery of their lesson plans.

The workshop is a four-hour working session. The workshop participants are expected to decide on one theme and one topic within that theme that they would like to explore during the workshop, and bring their teaching resources, laptops, and adapters for projectors to attend the workshop. They will be asked to share and display the draft of their lesson plan in the second half of the workshop for discussion and review.
