Asia Society Confucius Classrooms Network
Asia Society’s Confucius Classrooms is a national network of 100 exemplary Chinese language programs. The Network serves as model sites for developing the field of Chinese language teaching in American schools.
About the Network
Asia Society named, through a competitive process, 100 schools and districts with exemplary Chinese language programs. These schools not only have effective Chinese language instruction, but also strong local leadership and support, a demonstrated commitment to international exchange and collaboration. As Confucius Classrooms, they act as resource centers for other schools in the region.
Each Confucius Classroom is linked with a partner school in China to enhance opportunities for language learning and to provide students, teachers, and administrators with opportunities to conduct exchanges and joint projects. Asia Society designed the selection process for the 100 U.S. schools, assisted them in creating linkages with schools in China, convenes an annual meeting in conjunction with the National Chinese Language Conference, and provides ongoing support through e-newsletters and professional development seminars, as well as collect data to assess progress.
