Li Ning (2019-2020) received a Round 19 CLP grant to support the purchase of instructional materials for Chariho Regional High School. With CLP support, CRHS acquired new Level I and II instructional materials including textbooks and workbooks in Spring 2020 and is currently purchasing additional Level III instructional materials based on a communicative teaching approach and thematic content. Mr. Li worked with his TCLP mentor teacher to map curricula for each level and began using the new materials with his Level I and II students starting in Spring 2020. In a student survey, the majority of students reported that the new textbooks benefited their learning and increased their confidence in learning Mandarin. Classroom observations also showed that the new instructional materials increased student enthusiasm in class.
