Seventh-graders Craft Raps in Chinese Class
Mia Wu, Middle and Upper School Chinese language teacher, has found a creative way to reinforce the language with her seventh-grade students. During a recent lesson, Wu asked her students to write a rap using Chinese pronunciations. Students learned how to pronounce Chinese phonetically using pinyin, a tool used to teach the Chinese language, and wrote their raps. Students presented their raps to their classmates. Virtual learners shared their raps via video.
