Now in its fourteenth year, Sino-American Bridge for Education and Health (SABEH), welcomes experienced teachers of all subjects and grade levels to apply for a four- to six-week trip to China in July 2018. Teachers (along with Chinese translators) will instruct in creative teaching strategies using US topics as content for high school, middle school, and elementary school Chinese teachers. Teaching is intense and is followed by a week’s free travel in China. The cost to participate is one half of the airfare.
