Instructional Program and Activities Fall 2020

Keeping Active, Keeping Safe

Life in Wuhan is slowly getting back to "normal." As we look forward to the start of school in September 2020, we are working to provide as many of the typical fall activities as possible, while keeping students and staff safe. In addition, we are working with the Provinical Foreign Affairs Office to obtain permission for our teachers and their families to return to Wuhan as soon as possible.

Below are Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) about the fall 2020 program. Please let us know how we can support you.

FAQ | 常见疑问与解答 | 자주 묻는 질문

1. Some of my child’s teachers are not currently able to return to China. For those classes, how will instruction take place?
Teachers not in China will continue to plan lessons and teach through video and online discussion tools. Specific times will be arranged each day for students to work with teachers located overseas. These teachers will present video instruction to the class. Students will then work in small groups and individually to practice skills. Overseas teachers will continue to provide individual student feedback and will follow up with parent meetings just as they would in a face-to-face learning environment.
1. 如果我孩子的一些老师目前无法返回中国。对于这些课程,将如何进行教学?
1. 제 자녀의 일부 선생님들은 현재 중국으로 돌아올 수 없습니다. 그런 수업들은 어떻게 대체되는 건가요?
중국에 없는 선생님들은 비디오와 온라인을 통해 수업을 계획하고 계속 가르칠 것입니다. 매일 학생들이 해외에 있는 선생님들과 소통할 수 있도록 특정 시간들을 할당할 것입니다. 이 선생님들은 교실에 화상수업을 진행할 것입니다. 그리고 나서 학생들은 소그룹이나 개별로 배운 내용들을 공부하게 됩니다. 해외에 계신 선생님들은 지속적으로 학생 개개인에게 피드백을 주고 대면수업 환경에서처럼 학부모 상담으로 후속 조치를 할 것입니다.
2. Will there be after-school activities and athletic competitions?
Yes. Campus activities and tournaments will continue. We will monitor the local health and travel conditions throughout the year in order to give students the most educational opportunities in a safe environment.
