Wo Hui Reading eBooks
Project Manager: Ying Zhou
Children will create their own Mandarin books demonstrating their learning of
Wo Hui Hanzi. The book can be an individual work or mini group work. The book
consists of a book cover, title, text and illustration. Children may choose to use Wo
Hui Hanizi to ‘snowball’ phrases and sentences to create the story content. Some
children may create and write their own sentences. Illustration will be designed by
and in consultation, modification by the children. Technology enables children to
turn their self-made paper book into an interactive eBook. This part of the project
will require children’s technology skill in recording, photography and editing.
Presenting and sharing will bring children forward to talk about their creation of
books. Throughout the ‘book creation’ project, Mandarin teacher will be able to
assess student’s understanding and application of Wo Hui Hanzi. Having their
books published online will bring entrepreneurial spirit into the project. They will
be constantly stimulated to ideas of marketing their books. This fosters children’s
life skills to success in the competitive 21st Century.
