Upper School Mandarin students were joined by guest speaker Viviane Chen, who led them through a series of Taiji and meditation exercises on the Green Roof. As US Mandarin teacher Xiaolin Lin describes, practicing Taiji encouraged students to find tranquility and peace in themselves, their community and their life. The class also interviewed Viviane in Mandarin to learn more about the martial arts form. Viviane's visit was a great opportunity for experiential learning and "helped [students] with cross-cultural understanding and critical thinking," writes Xiaolin.
