Symposium on Inclusive Chinese<br />

as a Second Language<br />

3<br />

Yan Zhou and Liz Carter


<strong>CLTA</strong> NEWSLETTER <strong>Jan</strong>. <strong>2021</strong><br />

On December 12, 2020, UCLA hosted a virtual<br />

event, the UC Symposium on Inclusive Chinese as a Second Language, which is the very first of its<br />

kind in the field of CSL in the United States.<br />

The symposium began with Professor Hongyin Tao (UCLA)’s opening remarks<br />

highlighting the urgent need for practical discussions on Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion in the<br />

field of CSL under the current sociopolitical background in the United States.<br />

The symposium began with individual presentations and was followed by a period of open<br />

discussion. In their presentation, Drs. Lihua Zhang and Minzhe Zheng (UC Berkley) discussed the<br />

issues existing in and possible ways to innovate with CSL textbooks and pedagogies that promote<br />

diversity and inclusion, such as the unconventional pedagogy of translanguaging. Ruomei Hsieh<br />

(UC Irvine) and Peichia Chen (UC San Diego) approached inclusive education by sharing their<br />

profound personal experiences in everyday life and CSL classrooms. “Discrimination is normalized<br />

in ordinary life and classrooms,” Ruomei Hsieh stated. Peijia Chen’s presentation focused on how<br />

to address gender issues in the CSL classroom. Hsieh and Chen both suggested that Chinese<br />

instructors consciously reflect on their<br />

pedagogical practices and provide a<br />

respectful, safe learning environment to<br />

students of various backgrounds. Yan Shen<br />

(UCLA) presented her strategies for<br />

conducting assessments in a remote teaching<br />

environment. Michelle Fu Smith (UCLA)<br />

shared her experience in building an<br />

inclusive classroom through differentiated<br />

instruction. Liz Carter (UCLA) showed her<br />

strategy for improving teacher-learner<br />

communication through anonymous<br />

feedback channels. Yan Zhou (UCLA)<br />

presented on how establishing ground rules<br />

helps to build an inclusive classroom.<br />

Professor Chengzhi Chu (UC Davis)<br />

discussed the necessity and rationale for<br />

including Chinese international students in<br />

advanced Chinese language and culture<br />

courses, offering another perspective on<br />

inclusive education in Chinese programs.<br />

<strong>CLTA</strong> NEWSLETTER <strong>Jan</strong>. <strong>2021</strong><br />

In the open discussion session, the discussion centered on how to balance the needs of<br />

creating a safe learning environment and realizing learning the objectives of Chinese language and<br />

culture, which might include sensitive topics. Participants contributed various thoughts and<br />

possible solutions. Professor Hongyin Tao pointed out the importance of communicating with<br />

students about the boundaries between the technical aspects of language learning and the<br />

subjective sociopolitical ideologies in the target language and culture. Professor Chengzhi Chu<br />

highlighted the distinction between facts and opinion concerning what is authentic in the target<br />

language and culture and how CSL stateholders should perceive and evaluate it. Yuwen Yao<br />

(UCLA) reminded instructors to distinguish between students’ apparent grammatical errors and<br />

the underlying non-conventional identities. Xiaoxin Sun (UCLA) suggested that images of public<br />

figures, instead of family members, could be used to avoid making students feel uncomfortable in<br />

certain classroom tasks. Hsiao-Jung Yu (UC Santa Barbara) recommended using authentic<br />

materials such as the Chinese drama Home with Kids (!"#$) to engage students in discussions<br />

of diversity and equity. It was agreed among the participants that it is critical to introduce<br />

authentic Chinese language and culture to students and to encourage critical thinking in CSL<br />

classrooms, as teaching and learning a second language itself is practicing diversity, while being<br />

sensitive to issues on equity, diversity, and inclusivity.<br />

This event provided faculty and graduate teaching assistants of Chinese programs across<br />

the UC campuses an opportunity to share their experiences and strategies in promoting inclusive<br />

teaching. Participants appreciated this opportunity and expressed enthusiasm for participating in<br />

future events on the topic of inclusive classrooms. A proposal to form a special interest group (SIG)<br />

of inclusive Chinese within <strong>CLTA</strong>-USA was discussed. Another long-term project out of this<br />

activity is the website for inclusive Chinese related information and guidelines:<br />

https://inclusivecsl.humspace.ucla.edu/<br />

The symposium was supported by a UCLA Humanities Division EPIC Innovation Grant<br />

and was led by UCLA faculty Hongyin Tao and two graduate student Co-PIs Liz Carter and Yan<br />

Zhou from the Department of Asian Languages and Cultures at UCLA.<br />

Learners Communicate in the Culture. American Journal of<br />

Chinese Studies, 27(2), 139-165.<br />

This collective essay presents the core theories and pedagogical practices<br />

of the Performed Culture Approach (PCA). Developed in the field of<br />

East Asian language pedagogy, PCA adopts the pedagogical device of<br />

scripted cultural performances to help learners incrementally and<br />

systematically acquire the linguistic proficiency and intercultural<br />

communicative competence that they need to operate and participate<br />

successfully in a target culture. Contributors of this collective essay<br />

elucidate the key cognitive and psychological theories as well as the<br />

humanistic motivations behind PCA, the role of pedagogical materials in<br />

PCA, as well as the key instructional design and pedagogical practices of PCA at various<br />

instructional levels.<br />

The 2020 ACTFL Virtual Annual<br />

Convention and World Languages<br />

Expo was held from November 20th<br />

to 22nd. <strong>CLTA</strong> continued to help<br />

ACTFL as a partner with the review<br />

process, event promotion, and<br />

conference organization. Professor<br />

Shuai Li of Georgia State University,<br />

a current member of the Board of<br />

Directors, served as the <strong>CLTA</strong><br />

program chair. <strong>CLTA</strong> President<br />

(Professor Yi Xu) and Executive<br />

Director (Professor Sue-mei Wu)<br />

timeslots allocated by ACTFL, this year <strong>CLTA</strong> sponsored 2 simulive sessions and 7 on-demand<br />

sessions to share best practices and resources in Chinese language learning and teaching. As a gold<br />

exhibitor, <strong>CLTA</strong> also held virtual meetings and shared promotional videos on the ACTFL virtual<br />

platform.<br />

Before the three-day convention, the ACTFL Assembly of Delegates was held on<br />

November 19th over Zoom. The Assembly focused on two themes: (1) diversity and<br />

inclusion: Putting words into Actions and (2) supporting teachers: From crisis to calm. President Yi Xu<br />

and Executive Director Sue-mei Wu attended these two sessions on behalf of the <strong>CLTA</strong>. Prior to<br />

the Assembly, the <strong>CLTA</strong> steering committee responded to ACTFL’s call for organizational selfreflection<br />

and shared with ACTFL our association’s examples and strategies in addressing these<br />

key topics, including what we have already accomplished, what is in process, and what we are<br />

visioning for the future.<br />

Essential College Chinese adopts an innovative approach to the teaching of Chinese language to<br />

native English-speaking college students and revolutionizes the way Chinese has conventionally<br />

been taught. In recognition of the fact that Chinese is tonal and uses logographs in writing, it<br />

separates the learning of the Chinese phonetic system from that of the Chinese writing system for<br />

beginners, making Chinese language learning more natural, enjoyable, and effective.<br />

Chinese Program Director (San<br />

Francisco, California)<br />

Chinese American International School<br />

seeks a


<strong>CLTA</strong> NEWSLETTER <strong>Jan</strong>. <strong>2021</strong><br />

Chinese Program Director<br />

(full time, exempt)<br />

Is CAIS Right for You?<br />

The late founder of Apple, Steve Jobs,<br />

famously said, “It doesn’t make sense to hire<br />

smart people and tell them what to do; we<br />

hire smart people so they can tell us what to<br />

do.” Former US Secretary of State Hillary<br />

Clinton said, “When we all help each other<br />

out, when we stand together, we are stronger<br />

together.” If these sentiments resonate with<br />

you, then you might feel like you’ve found a<br />

home at CAIS.<br />

We are the oldest, most well-established,<br />

and most well-resourced Chinese immersion<br />

school in the US, and we want someone who<br />

will challenge our assumptions, make us<br />

rethink the way we do things, and lead us to<br />

become even better. Part of CAIS’s Mission<br />

is to “become our best selves 成 为 最 好 的 ⾃<br />

我 .” We are searching for someone who will<br />

help us achieve this Mission as a school, and<br />

we will support this person to develop<br />

personally and professionally to become<br />

their best self at CAIS. You will succeed at<br />

CAIS if you are bold.<br />

The Challenge and The Opportunity<br />

Proficiency and Engagement CAIS’s 2020<br />

Strategic Vision, “Reimagining CAIS 重 新<br />

构 思 中 美 ” articulates four themes. The first<br />

theme is “Reimagining Immersion 重 新 构<br />

思 沉 浸 式 教 学 .” Part of our rationale for<br />

this theme is articulated below:<br />

In order for students to engage in interesting<br />

and meaningful work in another language,<br />

they must develop requisite levels of<br />

proficiency and experience feelings of<br />

success. Likewise, in order for them to<br />

sustain their motivation and achieve high<br />

46<br />

levels of proficiency, the work they do must<br />

be interesting and meaningful to them.<br />

CAIS recognizes the critical link between<br />

language proficiency and engagement in<br />

meaningful learning. Students will thrive if<br />

both proficiency and engagement are<br />

addressed deliberately and intentionally. A<br />

solid foundation in listening, speaking,<br />

reading and writing is fundamental to<br />

students’ ability to work with and maintain<br />

interest in relevant and meaningful content.<br />

The next leader of our Chinese program<br />

must be focused on the systematic<br />

cultivation of both proficiency and<br />

engagement, recognizing that immersion<br />

faculty are both language and content area<br />

teachers.<br />

Thoughtful, Discerning, and Creative<br />

Application of Pedagogy Amidst the range<br />

of approaches to teaching and learning we<br />

may find ourselves stubbornly clinging to<br />

convention, uncritically accepting of<br />

innovation or, most likely, somewhere in the<br />

middle. As teachers of Chinese language in<br />

a US context, we need to choose, revise, and<br />

adapt our pedagogy based on what is the<br />

most effective way to move our students<br />

toward the proficiency and engagement<br />

outcomes to which we aspire. The wholesale<br />

and uncritical application of “best practices”<br />

that were originally developed for outcomes<br />

other than Chinese language proficiency is<br />

risky. Likewise, the unwillingness to let go<br />

of conventional approaches that may be<br />

outmoded for our students is also a risk. We<br />

are searching for a results-driven leader who<br />

is open to a variety of approaches and is also<br />

critically discerning about what works best<br />

for Chinese language learning. This will<br />

require a combination of optimism,<br />

skepticism, and creativity.<br />

Educating English Faculty About The<br />

Challenges and Responsibilities of Chinese<br />

Faculty Many (most) faculty whose primary


<strong>CLTA</strong> NEWSLETTER <strong>Jan</strong>. <strong>2021</strong><br />

language of instruction is English do not<br />

speak, read, or write Mandarin.<br />

Understandably, they cannot have a full<br />

understanding of the challenges Chinese<br />

immersion teachers face as both language<br />

and content teachers. The Chinese Program<br />

Director will need to work with the English<br />

Curriculum Director and all faculty to<br />

ensure that curriculum planning accounts for<br />

this, and that Chinese faculty are given<br />

sufficient time and space to develop the<br />

requisite language proficiency in their<br />

students.<br />

Integrate with Other Disciplines While<br />

Maintaining a Language Acquisition Focus<br />

At CAIS we are well-known for our<br />

integrated curriculum. We are a highly<br />

collaborative school where educators work<br />

closely together on learning design across<br />

subjects and languages and with the<br />

community outside the school and even<br />

outside national borders. The Chinese<br />

Program Director must continue and<br />

enhance the collaborative, integrated nature<br />

of our program while protecting the central<br />

importance of Chinese language acquisition<br />

and proficiency.<br />

Embed the “CAIS Immersion Bonus” into<br />

Daily Planning and Practice A key strategy<br />

in our above mentioned Strategic Vision<br />

“Reimagining CAIS” is to “focus on<br />

innovative approaches to immersion aimed<br />

at intentionally cultivating cognitive,<br />

character, and intercultural competencies—<br />

this is the ‘CAIS Immersion Bonus.’” Our<br />

rationale for the CAIS Immersion Bonus is<br />

as follows:<br />

Beyond language achievement, immersion<br />

in Chinese language and culture should be a<br />

vehicle to develop students’ problem solving<br />

and meaning-making skills as well as foster<br />

perseverance, humility, curiosity, empathy,<br />

connection to others, and a true appreciation<br />

of difference.<br />

47<br />

The Chinese Program Director will be<br />

responsible for collaborating with faculty to<br />

find innovative ways to embed these<br />

concepts intentionally into planning and<br />

practice.<br />

The CAIS Mandarin Immersion Program<br />

CAIS is an independent, co-educational day<br />

school serving 500 students in grades<br />

Preschool through eight. Beginning in the<br />

<strong>2021</strong>-22 school year, CAIS will run a full<br />

immersion program in Preschool, a 50/50<br />

Chinese/English program in K-5 with a full<br />

day in Chinese every other day, and a 30/70<br />

Chinese/English program in 6-8 with an<br />

integrated, project-based curriculum.<br />

The CAIS faculty is highly collaborative,<br />

with teacher collaboration time built into the<br />

daily schedule each morning before classes<br />

begin. Chinese language teachers<br />

collaborate with each other and also with<br />

their English teaching colleagues.<br />

At CAIS we have a very developed program<br />

of formative assessment in Chinese. The<br />

majority of our teachers are ACTFL<br />

certified in administering and scoring the<br />

OPI (Oral Proficiency interview) and the<br />

WPT (Writing Proficiency Test). Each year<br />

all students in grades five and eight take the<br />

OPI, and all CAIS students in grades 1-8<br />

take the WPT three times each year. In<br />

addition, we administer other standardized<br />

Chinese assessments including STAMP and<br />

AAPPL. The data we collect from these<br />

assessments are used to evaluate our<br />

curriculum and teaching for the purpose of<br />

improving our program.<br />

CAIS employs a Global Programs<br />

Coordinator who organizes three large<br />

student trips each year during the spring.<br />

Our 5th grade students travel to Taiwan to<br />

spend two weeks with our partner school in<br />

Taipei, and live with host families. The


<strong>CLTA</strong> NEWSLETTER <strong>Jan</strong>. <strong>2021</strong><br />

Taiwan host siblings then return to CAIS<br />

and live with CAIS families. Our 7th graders<br />

spend three weeks in Guilin, Guangxi<br />

Province with our partner organization there,<br />

living with host families and studying a<br />

curriculum of intensive language study in<br />

the morning and field work in the afternoon.<br />

CAIS eight graders travel to Yunnan<br />

Province where they focus on rural life and<br />

ethnic minority cultures, including a village<br />

home stay in a Kham Tibetan village. All<br />

three programs are integrated with the CAIS<br />

curriculum in Chinese.<br />

CAIS also has restricted funds dedicated to<br />

the China Faculty Institute (CFI), a program<br />

that funds CAIS faculty learning in China<br />

and Taiwan, through either CAIS organized<br />

group programs or individual travel grants.<br />

CAIS educators are encouraged to present at<br />

national conferences such as the National<br />

Chinese Language Conference (NCLC) and<br />

the annual ACTFL conference. CAIS has a<br />

generous professional development budget<br />

and each year representatives from CAIS<br />

attend these conferences as presenters and<br />

workshop leaders, often collaborating with<br />

educators from other immersion schools<br />

around the nation. CAIS has also organized<br />

and hosted two conferences each year, the<br />

Early Childhood Chinese Immersion Forum<br />

(ECCIF) and the Chinese Innovation Forum.<br />

Main Areas of Responsibilities of the<br />
