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.
