Chinese International Students Present to Seventh Graders

Kelly Fykes (lk)
The Chinese International Students from Mrs. Fykes Advanced English class shared their first-hand knowledge of Chinese culture, schools, government and economic systems with the seventh graders. Mrs. Wengler's and Mrs. Durand's seventh-grade students are preparing to read  Red Scarf Girl, a memoir of the Chinese cultural revolution, written by Ji-li Jiang, so what better way to learn about China than by learning from our own resident experts? Highlights of the presentations included practicing morning exercises, a choreographed routine designed to get students moving that are done school-wide in China, hearing about the students' favorite Chinese delicacies such as hot pot and Dongpo pork and learning about the tremendous urbanization in areas of China. It was also a great opportunity for the Chinese students to showcase their knowledge and hone their public speaking skills.
