April 2020 – Beijing & Xian, China (Xindu #1 Middle School)
This China trip is designed to be a WL classroom extension. It is aiming for students not only to have a short Chinese Language and culture immersion experience but also learn to grow as language and cultural ambassador between East and West; Chinese high school and River Bluff High School.
In addition to historical sites visits, students will shadow Chinese high school students at a local residential high school for a few days. They will also conduct volunteer service work at China Panda Research Base. By the end of the trip, students should be able to grow on language and culture proficiency to identify and compare major language and cultural differences between China and U.S.; synthesize and infer some historical influences on contemporary Chinese life and ways of thinking.
