At Jing Mei, we design our thematic units based on BSD curricular topics in Science and Social Studies. Our Mandarin and English literacy activities are designed around the content areas as well as skills as indicated by Common Core State Standards and American Council on the Teaching of Foreign Languages (ACTFL). With respect to character learning*, we emphasize on function and application rather than quantity. Our goal is to foster a language-rich environment in which students can use language in an authentic way in their daily receptive and expressive communication.
