Register for the 2017-18 Mandarin Teacher Leadership Institute

California needs well-qualified language teachers in its classrooms to ensure that students gain the proficiency and confidence to use their Mandarin language skills in real-world situations.  To address this growing need, The UCLA Mandarin Teacher Leadership Institute (MTLI) is providing Mandarin teachers with the tools they need to become master teachers of Chinese language and culture, and to serve as leaders in the K-12 Mandarin teaching community.

As a participant, you will learn fun, creative strategies for developing lesson plans that emphasize exclusive use of the target language while also fulfilling California’s Common Core language, culture, and content standards. You will also learn how to effectively incorporate authentic materials and technology into your classes.
