Butter lovers-(梁祝) also known as "China's Romeo and Juliet" is a Chinese legend of a tragic love story of a pair of lovers. The most popular love story in China tells the legend of two 4th century Chinese lovers who could not marry due to different family backgrounds. After the hero dies of a broken heart, the heroine leaps on his grave and the two turn into a butterfly couple after their deaths. For centuries, the story has been adapted into traditional operas, movies and TV plays. The Butterfly Lovers - Liang Zhu is an interdisciplinary Musical dance project that is simply an opportunity for students to come together and make art about what they learn from the Chinese story and how much they get inspired from the music. This project is a collaboration of students at Mesita 3rd grade Chinese class to create a musical performance, 4th grade art class to design and construct artwork; and 5th grade orchestra class for the original pieces of music. There are also other contributions from local artists and business owners in the El Paso area. They provided awesome resources like, photography and editing skills, and costumes to support the success of our performative event.

With a twist on multiple intelligences, my capstone project will allow students to contribute student-selected projects that will be showcased during Faust's First Annual Chinese Celebration. Students will be given a list of small projects they can choose from, individually or in a small group, that peaks their interests, builds on their specific intelligence and showcases Chinese Language and culture. The goal is to invite the entire school community to Chinese Celebration to participate in the event.

Since there is a very effective and successful Arabic program in my school, I needed something new that attracts more students and give them real experiences that land them on the Arab world. I thought of the idea of creating an Arab club which is responsible for everything relates to the Arab culture. In this club we offer materials such as: books, clothes, jewelry, perfumes, pottery, accessories, paintings...etc that tell us many things about the Arabs and their lives. All of these things are with a full description and details about its history and why and how it is used. This club also provides some educational materials like: stories and movies that encourage students to learn without even noticing that they are learning. this club is also open for all not only Arabic language learners. All are welcome. I also worked on some curriculum development through giving more handouts and sheets to apply more strategies in the lessons given.

My capstone abstract is about the use of different games and activities outside the ordinary classroom to increase the students' different skills and to create a fun and pure educational atmosphere and let all kinds of learners to participate freely without stress., In my capstone project, I will mention some of these games and activities, for example, I use the "heads up" activity in which I ask one of the students to wear a crown with an Arabic word on and the student ask their peers questions until he or she reaches the word. Another activity is the " hot seat" activity in which I ask one of the learners to come to the front of the class and his peers start asking him questions about the day's topic and sometimes it can be done like an open discussion about what they learnt before. The next game is the playing cards game which has the same idea of the playing cards which people use as I divide students into groups and each group has two teams with cards in hands and cards on the grounds and the team which is his turn to play, they should match the card with one of the same category, for example, if he has a food item, he can take another food item with it and if he doesn't have what matches with his card, he has to put it with the cards on the ground, waiting for the other team to play. Another simple and fun game is the swat game which provides good kind of activation. One game else is the speaking dice game in which I give every student a number and I offer some cards with words that are put upside down and when I use the dice, the student chooses a card and use the word he chooses in a sentence on his own. The next game is the jumping ball game in which I use the ball and throw it to students to mention a kind of words that I ask them to say. The next activity is the line up activity in which I ask students to stand in two lines and every student faces his partner and they practise speaking using the day's targeted language. There are also very beneficial activities that I use and I mention them in my capstone project like the catching tissue game, the vocabulary classification game, the wall chart activities and the name counting game. So the target of this capstone is to let students increase their language skills during the after school Arabic club and that could be once a week.

Meeting will be held in different places every time. Some students may help me with it.
