Three Chinese educators spent two weeks in residence at The Lippman School in Akron as part of an exchange program with Lippman’s Chinese sister school, The Dali Experimental School, located in Guangzhou, China.
During the visit, Lippman students in transitional kindergarten through eighth grade learned about Chinese culture with a special emphasis on traditional art forms. The Dali School’s lead art teacher worked with students to create individual artwork, which also was displayed in The Lippman School’s Woll Family Center for Innovation.
As part of this annual cultural exchange, three teachers from The Lippman School spent two weeks teaching and learning in The Dali School. Additionally, Dali School students will travel to the Akron community this summer as part of its annual Cultural Immersion Camp.
Approximately 20 students will travel from China with their teachers to participate in this academic cross-cultural camp. Campers will explore Chinese and American cultures, and afternoons will include a variety of recreational opportunities, including swimming and hiking in Cuyahoga Valley National Park.
