Pair students into groups of 2 or 3.
Each group will be assigned one news text to read on the Chairman's Bao app or website:
a. pick out 5 adjective words, and find 5 other words that can come after these 5 words using the Chinese Corpus.
b. Highlight at least 2 cultural differences of how matters are treated or viewed that is different from American culture.
c. Create a multiple choice/fill in the blank game with the 5 words by creating 1 sentence for each word.
Present to the class words learned and a summary and comparison of the news piece, engage classmates with the multiple choice game.
In step two, another activity that can be included is having each student create a sentence using one of the vocabulary words provided by fellow classmates on their laptops, then have students move around to continue adding one sentence to each other's work to form a short story.
