Huanying Volume 1 Part 1 Teacher's Book (Online Textbook)

An Invitation to Chinese
1st Edition
by Lanting Xu, Jiaying Howard

If you're like most teachers, you're faced with the challenge of finding teaching materials that engage students, enrich their learning experience, and meet content standards—without spending hours creating your own activities for every lesson. The authors of Huanying recognize this need, and have responded with a bilingual Teacher's Book that contains all the essential resources needed to teach the Huanying course effectively.

An indispensable teaching guide, the book starts with sample lesson plans, a Scope & Sequence chart, a detailed explanation of Huanying's pedagogical approach and how to apply it, and tips on incorporating the 5 C's into classroom teaching. The main portion of the book is based on the creatively designed and carefully crafted student workbook, and features:

  • Copies of all student workbook activities with answer keys
  • Side notes that correspond to specific activities and suggestions on how to facilitate a learner-centered classroom using a variety of teaching methods
  • Transcripts of the Huanying Workbook Volume 1, Part 1 listening passages
  • An appendix of ready-to-use quizzes and unit tests (including teacher versions with answer keys)

Following the structure of the Huanying student workbooks, the Volume 1 Teacher's Books are divided into two parts, one for each semester. Volume 1, Part 1 covers the first semester of study. This book is in simplified Chinese characters and English.

About the Series

Huanying, Cheng & Tsui’s Chinese curriculum designed for secondary schools, was developed in accordance with ACTFL National Standards to meet the growing need for high-school materials. Set in an international school in Shanghai, Huanying's storyline follows the lives of a diverse group of students, both at school and at home to embed extensive language practice in a meaningful context. Huanying engages students in interactive and integrated language practice through fun and meaningful activities, contemporary topics that appeal to secondary school students, a full-color textbook design, and additional resources that will reduce teacher preparation time and allow teachers to focus on teaching.  The four-volume series covers four years of instruction at the secondary school level, and is perfect for pre-AP* and AP* Preparation.

Huanying is organized around topics that are essential to everyday communication, such as greetings, family, common items, dates and times, transportation, food and drink, and school. Volumes 1 and 2 each contain six units; Volumes 3 and 4 have four units. Each unit has five new lessons and one review lesson. Volumes 1 and 2 introduce approximately 500 essential vocabulary terms each, while Volume 3 introduces over 400 words. In addition, Volume 1 includes about 150 supplementary words and Volume 2 includes about 300 supplementary words. Volumes 3 and 4 have around 200 supplementary words each. Huanying’s simple, yet systematic, language notes introduce students to accurate and natural use of the language. Activities in the corresponding Huanying workbooks are skill-integrated, meaning nearly all exercises involve two or more language skills; this structure mirrors real-life usage and helps improve students’ overall language proficiency.

 Huanying contains the perfect mix of ingredients to ensure that the students’ learning experience is continuously intertwined with the “5-Cs” of foreign language learning—communication, culture, connections, comparisons, and communities—as established by the National Standards for Foreign Language Learning. The Huanying series contains a wealth of cultural information, exposing students to modern Chinese life while giving them an important grounding in Chinese idioms, legends, and traditions. By starting with a communicative approach and combining it with carefully crafted activities that embed repetitive language practice in a meaningful context, the authors of Huanying have created a practical and fun learner-centered experience for secondary school students.
