My capstone project is the Chinese New Year Guard Rally. The purpose of this event is to enable students to experience Chinese traditional culture more deeply and be interested in learning Chinese. The event is arranged on the day before the Chinese New Year, which is New Year ’s Eve. We performed three times during the day so that all the teachers and students of the school have the chance to take part in this event. The first is for pre-k to second grade students, the second is for third to fifth grades, and the third is for sixth to ninth grades. Each performance takes 45 minutes, including Chinese songs, shadow puppet shows, Tai Chi, and handicrafts shows. The students participating in the performance come from different grades. Fine art teachers offered great support before and during this events.

The theme of our capstone project is Field Trip—Cyrus Tang Hall in China. The aim of the field trip is to let the students of Grade 5 and Grade 6 at LaSalle to take a closer look at objects that tell stories of China’s complex history, diverse cultures, while learning Mandarin. Objectives: The whole project will last several months which can be divided into three procedures: 1. Explore the Field Trip before March with Ms. Veitch. (We have explored the museum--- Cyrus Tang Hall in China on Feb. 11. I’ve taken many pictures of the exhibitions and got a lot of materials for creating Field Trip Plan. 2. Contact with the home teacher and school consulter to confirm the good perfect date for the trip according to the school calendar, which doesn’t affect students’ study and exam. (We originally planned to carry on the trip at the beginning of April when the weather gets warmer, but the date hasn’t been set because of the unexpected school closures because of COVID-19 on Mar. 17th. We will figure out the date when we go back to normal school teaching.) Get the students of Grade 5 and Grade 6 at LaSalle to explore Field Trip—Cyrus Tang Hall in China to take a closer look at objects that tell stories of China’s complex history, diverse cultures, while learning Mandarin. (when we complete the field trip, I will upload the pictures and maybe videos when the students are exploring the museum.)

This project is to create a shared resource space to help the teachers, students and school community appreciate the diversity that is within our cultures, while recognizing we all have shared commonalities. The project could foster a multicultural library for our school- providing resources across themes of various texts that are represented across languages, culture folktales and representative of modalities of storytelling- books, videos, songs, holidays, etc. We could offer the entire school community access to texts across languages and various resources to represent the cultures of our school. We include songs, videos, movies and create various clubs that utilize the materials- world cultures club- allowing students to be exposed to different cultures and learning about the mandarin culture.

My Capstone Project is divided into two parts, I collaborated with my TCLP colleague to set Art Station at Family Fun Night of Steam at my host school to introduce our program and both of the Chinese and the Egyptian cultures.Families and students had fun learning about the Egyptian culture and the parents helped their kids making their own Ancient Egyptian wigs and collars, they also had the chance to have their names written in both Arabic and Chinese.Some students built a pyramid and others enjoyed taking pictures using the Pharaoh's maquette. It was a great chance to organize an Arabic Club in the second quarter of the year to help the students learn more about the Egyptian culture and the Arabic language.They enjoyed playing games, singing songs and watching videos. https://drive.google.com/open?id=1qc6aPVzwcWJHtqVMaxr3xVO5pyl8VAMj
