Abstract

This paper presents findings from the preliminary phases of a design-based research study of an innovative curriculum for Chinese high school students and the accompanying professional development model for Chinese teachers. The curriculum incorporates 21st century pedagogical approaches and is designed for high school students aspiring for admission to western colleges and universities. Both the curriculum for the high school students and the professional development design were created through a university/business joint venture. These programs represent initial efforts to develop a carefully crafted curriculum for Chinese high school students to scaffold the acquisition of skills and knowledge necessary for success in American higher education institutions. Instructional design challenges and considerations associated with culture and technology are addressed. Findings from baseline data collected during the initial phases of the pilot implementation are presented and discussed.
