How to effectively teach the AP Chinese Language and Culture course is one of interested and important topics among Chinese language teachers, who are planning and implementing a course that focuses on language proficiency while interweaving level- and age appropriate cultural content throughout the course and providing for frequent formative assessment of students’ developing proficiencies within the context of their learning.
The AP Chinese is designed to be comparable to forth semester college courses in Mandarin Chinese. We present this workshop for all teachers who are interested in teaching the AP Chinese. The presenters are senior teachers who will demonstrate their teaching strategies, procedures, and methods in training and preparing their students. We hope that their expertise and experiences will benefit all participants.

Effectively Plan and Implement
AP Chinese Instruction through Thematic Units
Presenter will introduce and explain how to effectively plan and implement AP Chinese instruction through thematic unit planning at each stage of instruction that follows the National Foreign Language Standards and specific requirements for AP Chinese curriculum with examples from real classroom practice. The goal is to set the clear and correct direction towards the AP Chinese requirements for all students from the first day of instruction. With this general principle in design of instruction, the presenter will further explain how a teacher can best help and prepare the students specifically for the AP Chinese exam during the final stage of their learning in our Chinese program.
