March 5th CLTA-WA Spring Workshop

a b

It was a very successful workshop. There were two topics, Making Thinking Visible in Chinese Flipped Classroom and Innovative Strategies and Concrete Techniques for Teaching Common in Chinese Textbooks.There were around 30 participants and the attendees were Chinese teachers from K-16 settings. Teachers thought the workshop was very informative and practical. It helped us get ready to use teaching methods and techniques that promote 21st century skills. A lot of participants stayed for a long time afterward to ask the presenter questions and expressed their hope to see the presenter invited back in the future.

CLTA-WA had a Taiwanese Lumpia Party on Sunday, 1/31. Although it was a Sunday, there were still ten teachers that showed up. Everyone liked how tasty and fun the lumpia was!
With proper facility and preparation, it’s possible to bring the lumpia to classroom and share with students.
It was a successful event and the lumpia was so delicious. Please check back soon for the upcoming networking event.
