Materials Project

In 2009 the State of California adopted World Language Content Standards (WLCS) for use in its K-12 public schools.  The UCLA Confucius Institute is working with teacher educators and language professionals to develop materials and related training programs such as the Mandarin Teacher Leadership Institute, aimed at improving language teaching practices and student outcome.

The Instructional Guide for Mandarin project is a multi-year, multi-media project that provides practical resources for teachers, school administrators, and materials publishers, about the WLCS and how they relate to K-12 Mandarin teaching in our state.  This project has been a collaborative effort made possible by the work of a dedicated team of education professionals.

Mandarin translations of the California World Language Content Standards have been created in both simplified and traditional Chinese characters.
