Provincial Conference Emphasizes Primary School Reading
In November, program staff attended the "Language Arts and Reading Teacher Training" organized by the Shanxi Province Education Association.
The conference included a mixture of talks by experts on children’s literature and demonstration lessons and sharing by teachers and principals from schools around the country which have started to incorporate extracurricular reading into their primary school language arts classes. The conference underscored the attention being paid nationally in China to enriching students’ extracurricular reading interest and literacy skills. Next semester, our program will continue to work with teachers on-site in Reading Class to develop innovative teaching methods that can help more rural schools nurture a richer foundation in reading skills and habits for rural children.
