Drawing from the Chicago Public Schools (CPS) summer program in Shanghai and Portland Public Schools
China Research Residency (CRR) in Suzhou, participants will examine how two study-abroad models can increase long-term motivation, connect students to the culture and improve language proficiency. CPS emphasizes strong ties to host institutions; the CRR emphasizes small-group field studies tied to
proficiency standards. Participants will learn about maximizing students’ study-abroad experiences and will develop strategies for running a successful program — including practical predeparture training and empowering in-country and post-program activities. Video footage of students in China and sample fieldstudy
designs will be presented.

    • It is not unusual for language educators to assume mere exposure to native speakers will increase language skills on field trips and even study abroad programs, and as a result, may deny students a golden opportunity to measurably increase language proficiency and cultural competency

    • “… [our daughter] gained an experience which changed her life and her relationship with the language. She has become an independent, self-assured mandarin speaker in that 2 week period (it was always there but now she believes it). My advice to parents in the future trips--trust it to work. Let the magic happen and it will. Your job is to raise money for the trip, and let your child and the staff do the planning”
