Special Announcements
  • Due to COVID-19 related stay at home restrictions, all Project DCLT events have been moved online for spring and summer 2020. We are delighted to report that our events are ongoing and participation is high! We've turned our focus to teaching remotely and online. We've ramped up our activities to maintain community and support in this challenging time. See our schedule below.
  • Rock that Movie 2020 prizes will be awarded soon! The theme is "10 minute that can change the world." The awards ceremony will be moved to an online format; details to follow. The Rock that Movie 2019 competition was the most successful and competitive yet! In 2019, 272 students from 24 schools – two elementary, 14 middle and 24 high schools --submitted 50 videos to the  Rock that Movie competition! 
  • Tools for online teaching and student reading at home: download culturally important stories for learning Chinese, iBooks, pdf and activities for teaching. We hope these tools are particularly useful in this time of online and remote learning.
