Mandarin Teacher Leadership Institute
December 2019 - April 2020

What is MTLI?

The Mandarin Teacher Leadership Institute (MTLI) is a professional development opportunity for Southern California K-12 Mandarin language teachers offered by the UCLA Confucius Institute in partnership with the California World Language Project. This seminar series gives teachers the tools needed to become master teachers of Chinese language and to begin serving the California K-12 education community as teacher-leaders.

As an MTLI participant, you will learn fun, creative strategies for developing lesson plans that emphasize the exclusive use of the target language while also fulfilling California’s Common Core language, culture, and content standards. You will also learn how to effectively incorporate authentic materials and technology into your classes that are designed to foster student understanding and proficiency.
