My capstone project is the Chinese New Year Guard Rally. The purpose of this event is to enable students to experience Chinese traditional culture more deeply and be interested in learning Chinese. The event is arranged on the day before the Chinese New Year, which is New Year ’s Eve. We performed three times during the day so that all the teachers and students of the school have the chance to take part in this event. The first is for pre-k to second grade students, the second is for third to fifth grades, and the third is for sixth to ninth grades. Each performance takes 45 minutes, including Chinese songs, shadow puppet shows, Tai Chi, and handicrafts shows. The students participating in the performance come from different grades. Fine art teachers offered great support before and during this events.

A grand Chinese New Year celebration was held in Plantation Middle School during Chinese New Year. The students and staff in our school and feeder schools and the officials from our county were invited to spend the wonderful afternoon with my Chinese students who well performed the Chinese-styled programs and showed their projects about Chinese culture. Some students from feeder schools also sang Chinese songs which I taught them during outreach. This capstone arouses people's interest in China and Chinese culture and establishes mutual understanding among different peoples.

The theme of our capstone project is Field Trip—Cyrus Tang Hall in China. The aim of the field trip is to let the students of Grade 5 and Grade 6 at LaSalle to take a closer look at objects that tell stories of China’s complex history, diverse cultures, while learning Mandarin. Objectives: The whole project will last several months which can be divided into three procedures: 1. Explore the Field Trip before March with Ms. Veitch. (We have explored the museum--- Cyrus Tang Hall in China on Feb. 11. I’ve taken many pictures of the exhibitions and got a lot of materials for creating Field Trip Plan. 2. Contact with the home teacher and school consulter to confirm the good perfect date for the trip according to the school calendar, which doesn’t affect students’ study and exam. (We originally planned to carry on the trip at the beginning of April when the weather gets warmer, but the date hasn’t been set because of the unexpected school closures because of COVID-19 on Mar. 17th. We will figure out the date when we go back to normal school teaching.) Get the students of Grade 5 and Grade 6 at LaSalle to explore Field Trip—Cyrus Tang Hall in China to take a closer look at objects that tell stories of China’s complex history, diverse cultures, while learning Mandarin. (when we complete the field trip, I will upload the pictures and maybe videos when the students are exploring the museum.)

The theme of our capstone project is Culture boxes. And it is also our CLP. Both of my home school and host schools are willing to establish a sister-school relationship. Therefore, we plan to ask students and teachers to communicate with each other through a series of activities called culture boxes. For my host school, MBA really has a global vision and try to provide students as many opportunities as possible to broaden students’ horizon and mind because most students may not have the chances to know the outside world even the whole life. Therefore, they provide English, Spanish, French, Japanese as well as Mandarin. This language teaching process not only offers language learning process, but also about world culture. Students here need the authentic Chinese culture to help them understand the outside world so that they will be further motivated in growing up to achieve their future goals. For my home school, we have international classes and programs where students are focused on English learning and aim to come to the USA or Canada to continue high school or University. It’s a good opportunity for them to communicate with American students before they actually come here so that they can have a better understanding of American education. For teachers in both schools, we all have PLCs every week to learn the modern teaching methodologies and how to apply them into our teaching to achieve improvements, if we can set a time every month for language teachers to communicate teaching methodologies and education system, it will be very helpful for both Chinese teachers and American teachers in their professional development. Although I will only be in MBA for a year, MBA is really eager to keep the program consistent. MBA will not only have long-lasting sister-school relationship with my home school, MBA can also further develop this mode to establish sister-school relationship with the next Chinese exchange teacher’s home school. In this way, more opportunities will be provided for both students and teachers in MBA.

This project is to create a shared resource space to help the teachers, students and school community appreciate the diversity that is within our cultures, while recognizing we all have shared commonalities. The project could foster a multicultural library for our school- providing resources across themes of various texts that are represented across languages, culture folktales and representative of modalities of storytelling- books, videos, songs, holidays, etc. We could offer the entire school community access to texts across languages and various resources to represent the cultures of our school. We include songs, videos, movies and create various clubs that utilize the materials- world cultures club- allowing students to be exposed to different cultures and learning about the mandarin culture.
