Chaoyue: Advancing in Chinese covers the five Cs—communication, cultures, comparisons, connections, and communities—and follows three communicative modes in lesson design: interpersonal, interpretive, and presentational. The authors arrange their lessons around four topics intrinsically interesting to students: the self, schooling, social customs, and the global village, fostering a full appreciation of Chinese culture. Each lesson contains warm-up activities, mini-dialogues, authentic readings, conversational relays, a cultural unit, examples of sentence patterns, and a vocabulary list. Two review lessons are geared specifically toward synthesizing and reinforcing the language and culture skills taught throughout the book, and footnote glossaries assist in reading comprehension. Written by experienced Chinese language instructors, Chaoyue helps students reach the preadvanced proficiency level within two semesters, or approximately 150 to 180 hours of course time. The preadvanced stage is comparable to a fourth-semester college Chinese course, or 250 hours of instruction. Unlike other language texts, Chaoyue is printed in both simplified and traditional Chinese characters, as well as the phonetic systems used in China ( pinyin) and Taiwan ( zhuyin fuhao). It also includes a CD-ROM with additional assignments and review as well as an online teacher manual. Lesson sections include: •Warm-up activities that articulate the lesson's theme and activate students' prior knowledge •Short readings in the form of letters, e-mails, reports, dialogues, stories, and interviews •Dialogue practice with key vocabulary and sentence patterns •Interactive activities such as surveys, debates, and small group discussions •Conversational relays that ask pairs to complete minidialogues •Authentic readings in the form of advertisements, Web sites, maps, and signs, with multiple-choice review questions •Common expressions that relate to the lesson theme
Includes two full practice exams in simplified and traditional Chinese, three CDs of listening and speaking practice, answer key, and review questions.

This text is the second in a series of three closely integrated volumes of spoken Chinese for use at the high-school and college levels. Intermediate Chinese presents dialogues on everyday topics together with analysis of anticipated points of difficulty for the student and numerous sentences illustrating the usage of all new words and grammar. The book consists of four units, with six lessons each. The first five lessons of each unit contain new material; the sixth reviews the preceding five. The review lessons contain a variety of drills, with no two lessons having exactly the same types of exercises. All the main lessons, however, contain the following divisions: -Dialogues (in Chinese) -Sentences for New Words and Grammar (in Chinese) -Review Sentences (in Chinese) -Monologue (in Chinese) -Questions (in Chinese) -Dialogue (English translation) -Sentences for New Words and Grammar (English translation) -Review Sentences (English translation) -Notes (in English) Like its predecessor, Beginning Chinese, this work is aimed at secondary school and college levels. In pinyin romanization, the dialogue-form lessons are supplemented by exercises, notes, and a combined glossary and index covering all the new tiems introduced in the dialogues. The first two lessons review all of Beginning Chinese, and every sixth lesson is a thorough review of the preceding five. A hundred illustrations compliment the text. Mr. DeFrancis, research professor of Chinese at Seton Hall University, compiled Intermediate Chinese under contract with the U.S. Office of Education. Yale Linguistic Series, 7. Previously announced.

The subject of sex was central to early Chinese thought. Discussed openly and seriously as a fundamental topic of human speculation, it was an important source of imagery and terminology that informed the classical Chinese conception of social and political relationships. This sophisticated and long-standing tradition, however, has been all but neglected by modern historians. In The Culture of Sex in Ancient China, Paul Rakita Goldin addresses central issues in the history of Chinese attitudes toward sex and gender from 500 B.C. to A.D. 400. A survey of major pre-imperial sources, including some of the most revered and influential texts in the Chinese tradition, reveals the use of the image of copulation as a metaphor for various human relations, such as those between a worshiper and his or her deity or a ruler and his subjects. In his examination of early Confucian views of women, Goldin notes that, while contradictions and ambiguities existed in the articulation of these views, women were nevertheless regarded as full participants in the Confucian project of self-transformation. He goes on to show how assumptions concerning the relationship of sexual behavior to political activity (assumptions reinforced by the habitual use of various literary tropes discussed earlier in the book) led to increasing attempts to regulate sexual behavior throughout the Han dynasty. Following the fall of the Han, this ideology was rejected by the aristocracy, who continually resisted claims of sovereignty made by impotent emperors in a succession of short-lived dynasties. Erudite and immensely entertaining, this study of intellectual conceptions of sex and sexuality in China will be welcomed by students and scholars of early China and by those with an interest in the comparative development of ancient cultures.
West Meets East
Author: Leslie Grant, James Stronge, Xianxuan Xu, Patricia Popp, Yaling Sun
The United States and China: two nations drastically different in demographics, history, political structures, and education systems. Despite these differences, educators in each country have discovered they have much to learn from one another. The United States looks east and is captivated by the high assessment scores that many Chinese students achieve. China looks west and is enamored with how the United States fosters innovation and creativity in students. Teachers are increasingly looking across borders to expand, adapt, and offer their students a more balanced education. West Meets East is based on the fundamental premise that strong teaching is at the heart of educational quality and that we all benefit from understanding the practices and professional thinking of exemplary teachers. With this in mind, Grant and her colleagues set out to discover which beliefs and strategies of effective teachers can cross the cultural divide and help students in each nation make breakthrough advances. As educators, it's important to understand that even though we're setting new goals and improving outcomes, excellence is a moving target. In the globally connected 21st century, educational innovations in one country can reset the bar for students around the world. Only by learning from one another can we be sure all our students remain competitive and successful.
