CPS Chinese Summer Language, Culture and Technology Initiative (CSLCTI)

HQ:   |   5 Member

CSLCTI is a district wide full scholarship study abroad summer program. It is made possible by the generous support from Wanxiang America Cooperation, the largest Chinese company in Chicago. The four-week intensive Chinese immersion program at Hangzhou Wanxiang Polytechnic (WXP) is also part of President Obama’s 100,000 Strong Initiative. A total of 24 high school students of Chinese traveled to Hangzhou, China, in July. These CPS high school students were selected via a competitive application process, representing Jones College Prep, Kenwood Academy, Lane Tech High School, Lindblom Math & Science Academy, Northside College Prep, Payton College Prep, Westinghouse College Prep and Whitney Young Magnet High School. They stayed on WXP campus in Hangzhou and took daily courses in Chinese and participated in educational excursions and cultural activities, including a visit to Xi’an. The objectives of the program are to form part of a pipeline of CPS Chinese extracurricular programs to motivate students to study Chinese beyond the 2-year minimum World Language requirement to graduate from a CPS high school, to enhance students’ Chinese proficiency and knowledge of Chinese history and culture, and to build students’ awareness of environmental protection and clean energy science.
