Unit Assessment
In pairs, students will role-play an exchange student in China who is impressed by the tea that is drunk there. The student will have a conversation with the host family to talk about and compare how tea is drunk in China and elsewhere in the world.

Students should work in groups of four or five. Their goal is to incorporate everything they’ve learned in this unit to create a skit, story, or mock tea-shop. The entire script should be written Chinese.

Take this assessment a step further, and have students create a video project. Students should memorize the script, then act, record, and produce their video project.

Requirements:

  • Each of the group members should have at least ten lines.
  • Each of the group members should submit his/her script written in Chinese characters, and memorize all of his/her lines.
  • Be creative and original!

Grading Rubric:

  • Total score out of 5
  • Grammar points for review
