Dr. Sun to Attend Conference on Chinese Language Instruction
祝贺 (that’s congratulations in Chinese!) to Dr. Xiaozhao Sun, Middle School Chinese teacher, who has been selected to attend the prestigious Conference on Chinese Language Instruction, sponsored by the National Foreign Language Center. In addition to leading Cannon’s Middle School Chinese program, Dr. Sun has spent seven years teaching at Queens University of Charlotte’s Summer Institute in Chinese (STARTALK), a free summer immersion program made possible by a federal grant that offers students grades 7-12 the opportunity to gain proficiency in real-world Mandarin Chinese. While at the conference in Philadelphia, Dr. Sun will learn about new pedagogical approaches to the teaching of Chinese.
