Yi-Wen Huang’s Story

Yi-Wen Huang, Assistant Professor of English & Linguistics, was a guest speaker for gifted students in the 6th, 7th, and 8th grades at Tohatchi Middle School.  She talked about Chinese geography and its influence on Chinese history and Chinese attitudes toward outsiders throughout history including ancient time, during the Cultural Revolution, and at the current time.  She also spoke to the mid-schoolers about Daoism and Confucianism.  Ms. Huang is also working to establish a Chinese language outreach program at Tohatchi Middle School.
