The outreach aims at introducing the new program and the Arabic Language. Most people in the valley did not know about the importance of learning Arabic. I think I was the first one to go to Alamo city in Texas. So I arranged this outreach and designed flyers to be distributed every where declaring time and place of the outreach which took place in the school cafeteria right after the campus at 5.00 pm - 6.00 pm My mentor teacher started the outreach introducing me and my program, then I showed the presentation which stresses the importance of learning the culture along with the language. I had the time to answer audience's questions regarding the program. Many wanted to join but did not have the time so I announced that I will have an Arabic Club for every one. We had then time for an interview with the district reporter. Finally we had a little feast that included some Egyptian food.

Kong Yanli received a CLP grant to build a sister school relationship between her home school in China, Yichang Foreign Language Junior High School and Nettlehorst Elementary in Chicago, Illinois, which is in the same district as her host school in the US. The relationship started with a pen-pal program, joint-classroom projects, the establishment of a Chinese Club at Nettlehorst Elementary, and will develop into an in-person, student exchange. The visit to the U.S. will take place in the summer for about two weeks as a summer camp. As a result of this CLP, the schools hope to have a yearly visit to the U.S. and eventually have the opportunity for American students to visit Kong Yanli’s students in China.

Gu Zhen received a CLP grant to develop and lead a workshop to share the effective teaching methodologies and teaching practices, that she learned in the United States, with English as a Foreign Language teachers from her home school and sister schools in China. She worked with other TCLP alumni to show how they apply what they learned from their TCLP experience to their home classroom teaching. Gu Zhen (Wright Elementary School, Fort Walton Beach, FL, 2015-16) organized a Teaching English as a Second Language (TESL) Professional Development Workshop on November 8, 2019. Held at Qinzhou No.1 Middle School in Qinzhou, China, approximately 140 teachers from area schools attended five sessions including two led by fellow 2015-16 TCLP alumni Xia Zhi (Watson B. Duncan Middle School, Palm Beach Gardens, FL) and Li Long (Roton Middle School, Norwalk, CT) who presented on project-based learning and interactive classroom activities. Teachers shared best practices and are eager to participate in future workshops. Their intention was to create an atmosphere for the participant to experience a very interactive, participatory workshop. At the end, they introduced the participants to the Teachers of Critical Languages Program (TCLP) and shared resources for online courses for professional development. They believe that they can always be better educators and want to share this expectation with their colleagues in China.
