The New England Chinese Language Teachers' Association (NECLTA) is calling for proposals for presentations at its 9th annual conference. Due to the concern and uncertainty caused by Covid-19 pandemic, the conference will be held online on Zoom on Sunday, Oct. 4, 2020. We will email you the links to the Zoom conference and sessions a few days before the conference. We welcome proposals from K-12 public and private school teachers, Chinese school teachers, college and university educators in Chinese, graduate students, national and international scholars, and educational administrators. It is also our hope that more presentations can be focused on Chinese language teaching online since this form of delivery has become the new norm of foreign language instruction. However, your presentation may address any aspect of issues in teaching and learning Chinese language and culture at various levels in different settings, including but not limited to: (1) classroom teaching practices, (2) technology application in Chinese teaching, (3) K-12 Standards-based instruction, (4) performance-based assessments, (5) thematic unit lesson planning, (6) reading and writing literacy development, (7) second language acquisition of Chinese, (8) Chinese linguistics and Chinese pedagogical grammar, (8) teaching culture, (9) teaching heritage students, (10) study abroad, and (11) others: administration, teacher training, immersion programs, etc. Proposals should be submitted online at by 11:59pm, Monday, August 24, 2020. Notification of acceptance decisions will be sent out through email by September 1, 2020. The maximum length of a proposal shall not exceed 500 words (in English or Chinese). If the number of proposals submitted significantly exceeds what the Conference can accept for presentation, we might set up a poster session on the NECLTA website to accommodate those proposals which cannot be presented at the conference.
