They will be divided into 4 working teams with at least one special education teacher in each group. Participants will not only immerse themselves in Chinese culture and language learning through language classes, seminars, school visits, and cultural activities, but also collaborate with peer teacher educators and teachers in China to design curriculum activities to integrate Chinese culture and language instruction in K-12 area studies. The special education teachers will offer their perspectives to ensure the Universal Design for Learning (UDL) principles and differentiated instruction strategies are employed in the design of language and culture activities for all students, including those with special needs.”
