On Nov. 22nd 2013, CIUA co-Director Dr. Zhao Chen and Program Manager Dr. Larry Lang took part in the Dedication Ceremony of the CIUA Confucius classroom at Accelerat-ed Learning Laboratory (ALL), a local charter school, which established a Chinese program in 1982. ALL School President Dr. David Jones, Director Serie Kay, ALL Chinese teacher Claire Wang, and five CIUA teachers attended the ceremony. About 200 ALL students at-tended the ceremony and first grader and sec-ond grader Chinese classes also sang Chinese songs to celebrate during the ceremony. CIUA student Jose, who won the third place at sixth Annual World “Chinese Bridge” Contest is also a student from ALL.
Representatives at CIUA and ALL also finalized the 2014 new Chinese culture curriculum at ALL.
So far, CIUA has established two Confucius Class-rooms, one is ALL, the other one is CFHS (Sunrise Drive Elementary School). CIUA looks forward to es-tablishing more Confucius Classrooms in Tucson.
