Ji Guanping received a CLP grant for her project titled, "Chinese Art and Food Appreciation". The project aims to enhance students’ cross-cultural understanding and arouse their interest in learning Chinese language and culture. The activities in the project include Chinese New Year traditions poster making, Chinese calligraphy for decoration, appreciating artworks of China and other Asian countries and trying Chinese food by ordering in the target language in an authentic Chinese restaurant.
A culminating event will be held simultaneously with parent/teacher conferences for the students to share their experiences and knowledge and celebrate the Chinese New Year. Through the project, not only the students, but also their family members and friends will learn about Chinese culture and traditions.
