November 22, 2022 | Filed in HFM PTECH, HFM Top Stories

9th graders enrolled in Mandarin and Studio Art recently presented Chinese children’s books that they authored and illustrated themselves to students at Boulevard Elementary School in Gloversville. Using their knowledge of story elements, the Chinese language, and artistic techniques, the PTECH students were broken down into smaller groups to create a collection of books to be shared with the local elementary students. The presentations consisted of the groups from PTECH reading the books aloud in Mandarin and then translating into English for the Boulevard students. Each group also spoke about different foods that are popular in China, some of the major cities and landmarks in the country, and gave a brief overview of their history.
