When: March 2019
Where: Shanghai, Mainland China
Institution: Language Out Loud
Pre-Texts, as part of the Language Out Loud (LOL) campaign, was piloted for the first time in China as a literacy pedagogy in the Nord Anglia Chinese International School (NACIS) in Shanghai. Using Pre-Texts strategies to teach Chinese to students in primary and middle school, the teachers were able to build literacy, innovation, and citizenship in the classrooms.
The results of the students’ efforts shone through when they participated in a nation-wide short story competition on “Me & China” by LittleStar Magazine in 2019. Students from NACIS won the First and Second prize in the 10–12-year-old category, and the third prize and an Excellence award in the below 9 age group.
