The goal of the Teachers Workshop is to motivate and empower you,  the teachers, to teach about modern China in your classroom.  This instructional plan is intended to help you design something you can teach.  Completing this instructional plan is a requirement for attending this workshop.

We recommend that you use the Inquiry and Instructional Method presented at the 2018 workshop.  However, you can use other methods of your choice.

Please complete the following questions:


  • What is the topic you want to teach?
  • What is the question you want your students to think about?
  • What resources are you providing to your students? For example reading materials, videos, news, etc. Provide links if applicable. All the 1990 Institute's teachers workshop presentations contain rich materials and can be found at this website.
  • Describe the activities you want your students to do. If you have created a graphic organizer, please describe it.
  • Specify which classes (e.g. world history, AP Chinese) you can use this instructional plan for.
  • The number of class periods to teach this lesson.
  • Anything you would like to tell us.
