Asia Society is an educational organization dedicated to promoting mutual understanding and strengthening partnerships among peoples, leaders, and institutions of Asia and the United States in a global context. Asia Society's TEQ (Theory, Enthusiasm, and Questions) Series works to create dynamic, interactive, and effective Chinese language instruction; thereby illustrating innovative Chinese language instruction in American K–12 classrooms. Each year, they select 5–10 Chinese teachers as Teaching Fellows.
LREI is honored to have high school teacher Catherine Zhong's TEQ instructional video selected as Asia Society's first episode in their new online series. The 30-minute classroom video is interspersed with commentary, a lesson plan for the video lesson, and interview. This series is intended to serve as a “window into classrooms” so teachers in training and professional development can visualize how various instructional strategies are carried out in real classrooms, reflect on their own teaching, and search for new ideas and strategies to make improvements. In this featured lesson, LREI's Chinese language teacher Catherine Zhong helps her students discuss the impact of the internet:
