Chinese Continuers Stage 1 & 2 Resources Development Project

 

Rationale

In December 2020 the Chinese Continuers Stage 1 & 2 Resources Development Group was set up. Its aims were: to update our teaching knowledge; to enhance the abilities of Chinese teachers to deliver in accordance with the SACE Board of South Australia Curriculum Statements 2020 for Stages 1 and 2 at Chinese Continuers Level; and to provide to our students the most systematic learning materials to enable them to maximize their potential in their learning and exams. 

 

The team

Seven teachers comprised the writing team. They are: Wen Ben, Jenny Jin, Wendy Lampard, Siew Ng, Eric Xu, Jenny Xu and Jing Zhou.

The outcome

We are producing two booklets: one is “The Basic Chinese Vocabulary for Chinese as Second Language Learners” of which the draft edition has been completed (there are 1632 Chinese words covering 27 topics encompassing almost all of the learning topics from Year 8 to Year 12); and the second one is “ Reading and Responding A & B Practice Booklet” which is undergoing its second drafting in accordance with the planned time frame of 12 months (from December 2020 to December 2021).
