April 17 AM

Off to Shijiazhuang Number 1 High School!

In about an hour, the PA administrators will the leave the Shijiazhuang Yanshan Hotel to stay with their sister school partners. The next time we meet will be Friday, April 21 at the Zhengding Airport in Shijiazhuang. We are all excited about the next and most important leg of this journey!

I look forward to getting to know Dr. Lou and his wife Meixi. I have lots of questions for them about their families, interests, hobbies, job responsibilities, and professional experiences.

I also have lots of questions for the teachers and administrators of Shijiazhuang No.1 High School. I want to learn more about the structure of the Chinese education system, curriculum, instruction, and assessment. Topics such as class size, discipline, professional education are also topics to explore.

Most importantly I want to learn about the students!!! What are their favorite subjects? What makes a teacher a great teacher? What are their dreams and aspirations? What are their worries? What do they do in their spare time? What types of music do they enjoy? What books do they read?

So much to learn with so little time......
