Description/Abstract: Guest Talk: META Project Launch: Resources for Chinese Bilingual Educators, with Sharon Chang, Annie Han, Christy Lao, and Patricia Martinez-Alvarez, Friday, 12/15, 4:30-6pm


Please join us on Friday, December 15th for the launch of the Bilingual/Bicultural Program's META Project.

"The purpose of this platform is for current and future Chinese bilingual teachers to exchange their insights, share the instructional materials, and mobilize new knowledge in practices via the venues of Curriculum Talk through collaborative conversations. META is a great virtual place for glocalized Chinese bilingual educators to generate transformative ideas collectively for their teaching by grades and by subjects in Mandarin Dual Language Programs. We hope to serve as a creative thinking hub to synergize the efforts of a broader innovative audience here in New York City Department of Education (NYCDOE) public schools and with our TC BBE alums nationally and internationally."
