When it comes to learning a world language, there’s no better way than to immerse students in the culture of the target language. That’s where the language comes alive and provides the depth in which students can explore, discover and understand on their own what makes the language what it is.
We believe extending the classroom to the real-world and giving students the opportunity to learn experientially is the absolute best way to empower students to become global citizens. That’s why we’ve enlisted the help of retired world languages teacher and ACIS Academic Travel Advisor Nicolette Miller to create these 6 Lesson Plans based on The New Bloom’s Taxonomy for World Language Instruction. She uses an Online Tour of The Forbidden City as the subject matter for 6 different lesson plans.
This guide is for Chinese teachers who wish to make their language instruction and cultural lessons about the target language come alive through virtual tourism in the world language classroom.
Taking an online virtual tour of the Forbidden City provides a lesson in Chinese history, an opportunity for Chinese students to use the target language and to learn about the role of the palace in Chinese history while using Interpersonal, Interpretive, and Presentational communication.
These 6 Lesson Plans engage students in all 3 types of communication according to the ACTFL Standards:
- Interpersonal Communication
- Interpretive Communication
- Presentational Communication
While experiencing The Forbidden City in person is a life-changing experience, we hope exposing your students to Chinese culture via these lesson plans gives your students the inspiration to take the leap into exploring the Chinese culture in the real world.
