My capstone is actually my CLP,which is a Chinese local fair.I had intended to hold it in March,but we had spring festival and too many snow days in February,so we didn't have enough time to get everything ready for it.And now we are busy with every detail to make sure it will be successfully held on April 26.So far, we have taken a field trip to MIA to help as many as possible students to have a general visual idea of what Chinese culture is like.Besides,I appointed 6 students to be directors of each section of the fair.They are responsible for food, calligraphy,dancing,martial arts,papercutting,sports.To make sure their sections will be popular, they are learning to dance, play Taichi and so on these days.And they have finished the posters and flyers for promoting their activities. Two weeks later, they will go on field trip to a Chinese buffet to learn about Chinese cuisines and learn to make dumplings.

From a series of activities, like lectures, assemblies, cross- culture fair, and Chinese Club, the people in the community will get a basic understanding and full engagement of Chinese Culture. The idea is to spread the knowledge and understanding of Chinese Culture, history and traditionas as well as the language to the community at large in order to increase people’s interest in Chinese Culture and Language Learning.

My capstone project is to establish a sister school partnership between my host school in the US and my home school back in China. Since my home school is well recognized for its foreign exchange affairs, we know how beneficial the relationship is to teachers and students for both sides. It not only benefit language learning, but also broaden student’s minds by visiting or talking with people from another culture, which helps them to be global citizens. For education administrators, it also helps them to have a glance at another educational system, to learn from their good points, and reflect on their own practice to make adjustment to be better. Before I departed, my home school had shown great interest in having a sister school in the US and presented the EHHS with a gift on behalf of the school to show our sincerity and welcome. After I arrived, I talked with the principal Mr Ryan and the language supervisor Liz, they also show their willingness to establish the relationship. As planned, they will pay a visit to my home school this Nov to talk about how to promote the relationship further.
