TEACHING BASIC CHINESE GRAMMAR
Far more than a grammar dictionary, Teaching Basic Chinese Grammar distills the knowledge and expertise of active, seasoned instructors from the Middlebury College Summer Chinese School. This handbook supplies teachers with classroom-tested instructional strategies and activities to help students comprehend, internalize, and effectively use Chinese grammar patterns to communicate early and often. Clear, concise English explanations of more than 140 fundamental Chinese grammar points are supplemented by sample sentences and analyses of common student errors. Comprehensible input scripts help teachers guide students through repeated, contextualized practice of new grammar before they progress to open-ended communicative activities and practice exercises.
The print handbook is supplemented by an extensive online bank (400+) of sample exercises with full-color images for teachers to use as practice. The sample exercises are included in the purchase of a print handbook, and are available as fully customizable Microsoft Word documents.
Teaching Basic Chinese Grammar follows the scope and sequence of Integrated Chinese Volumes 1 and 2, but the careful attention paid to maintaining a level-appropriate challenge for all novice learners makes this handbook a helpful reference in any beginning Chinese class.
