K-12 Chinese Flagship Program

K-12 Chinese Flagship Program is a part of the National Chinese Flagship Program at OSU. The program goal is to build the infrastructure for Ohio schools to establish successful language programs leading to solid communication skills in Mandarin Chinese. The program is developing partnerships in Ohio and beyond to achieve objectives that include the following:

  • Developing performance-based curriculum;
  • Providing teacher training and ongoing professional development; and
  • Creating a technology support system with effective Chinese language programs.

The K-12 Chinese Flagship Program is interested in supporting any school in Ohio that is offering or plans to offer Chinese language. We are building partnerships with selected schools in the 2007-08 school year to create pilot programs in Ohio, and then expanding to more schools in the following years.
