To share best practices in teaching Mandarin Chinese, the ASU Confucius Institute hosted the “Innovation in Teaching Competition” for K-12 Mandarin teaching in 2015. The competition aimed to recognize Mandarin teachers in Arizona who are using effective and innovative strategies in teaching Mandarin. The 14 selected winners will have the opportunity to collaborate with the ASU Confucius Institute to produce exemplified teaching to be shared with the community of Arizona educators of the Chinese language.
We believe teachers should have opportunities to learn from each other. This is a platform for professional learning through the use of carefully crafted and custom-made videos and lesson plans. We hope to provide access to great teaching materials for all Chinese language teachers!
