Visiting Teachers Participate in a Guest Teacher Summer Institute

July 24- August 1, 2013

For the 4th consecutive year, the UCLA Confucius Institute is partnering with the College Board in facilitating a specialized teacher training program for teachers from China. 135 teachers will travel to UCLA to participate in a 10-day session acclimating them to the US K-12 educational system, foreign language standards, methodologies, assessment, differentiation, classroom management, and other critical teaching skills. At the end of the period, the teachers will teach Chinese in host schools across America for a period of one to three years. New this year, one of UCLA’s Confucius Classroom schools, University High School, will serve as a training site and has already been overwhelmed with interested high school students.
