Supplementary Materials Packet
for Integrated Chinese Level 2 - First Edition
updated June 15, 2005
These are outdated and not suitable for use with current editions of the textbook
Beginning in the summer of 1999, with the help of teaching assistants, I have
compiled a large set of supplementary materials for use with Integrated
Chinese Level 2. The material was revised continuously through 2005.
I have been making these materials available free to Chinese instructors who
wish to use them. Earlier versions were available in simplified characters,
but the current version exists only for traditional characters. You may download
the complete set of the student edition. If you are interested in making
use of the instructor version, please contact
me for instructions.
Note that these materials are keyed to the first edition and
will not be updated for use with the current edition of Integrated
Chinese Level 2.
For each lesson, the packet contains the following sections:
- Errata (including corrections to the vocabulary list and grammar
notes in the Textbook, and to the homework in the Workbook). The section also
includes vocabulary usage notes, a relisting of hard-to-write characters (which
are difficult to see in the IC Textbook because of the dark background), and
glosses of unfamiliar words which appear in the homework.
- Grammar Notes. These are meant to supplement or in some cases replace
the grammar explanations in IC. In many instances short exercises are appended
to the explanations.
- Simplified Character Exercise. These exercises are designed to systematically
introduce simplified characters to students who were exposed only to traditional
characters in first-year Chinese. They are designed to complement the current
lesson's vocabulary and homework assignments.
- Activities and Exercises. Designed for in-class use, these are more
extensive than the exercises found with the grammar notes, and generally are
intended for pair-work.
- Reading Guidelines. These are for the student's own use when preparing
the lesson text.
- Supplementary Translation Exercises. This can be used toward the
end of the lesson for a comprehensive, integrated review of the vocabulary
- Instructor's Materials. These appear only in the Instructor Edition.
Additionally, any text in the packet which appears with a dotted underline
is only visible in the Instructor Edition.
Because the materials were developed at the University of Washington, there
are a number of references to local buildings, streets, and neighborhoods. Additionally,
a few of the activities are related to tapes or videos which are not available
for general distribution.
