TESOL Master Class Webinar Series 5
Teaching for Excellence under Education Policy Changes
April 6, 2023


We are pleased to offer the third series of TESOL Master Class Webinars which will address English teaching in middle school under the new curriculum standards and the “Double Reduction” policy with the theme of “Teaching for Excellence under Education Policy Changes” led by, the English language specialist, Dr. Nancy Yi-Cline.


This series will consist of six 90-minute live webinars taking place from April 8 to June 17, 2023, which aims to provide professional and practical guidance on the newly published Compulsory Education English Curriculum Standards for middle school English teachers in China.


Drawing on her own extensive experiences in a variety of roles both in China and the US: a university education program instructor, a district instructional coach, and a classroom teacher, and guided by student-centered, authentic, and cooperative learning principles, Dr. Yi-Cline will delve deep into specific areas such as integrated unit and lesson planning, student engagement, and assessment so that all students develop English language proficiency and cultural competency simultaneously. Ample authentic examples will be given and guided exercises involving the participants will be conducted during each session to help enhance the effectiveness of this webinar series.
