The following analysis refers to an article in that appeared in the Star Tribune Saturday. The article is about Dongyang Qu, a teacher from Beijing, that is teaching Mandarin Chinese to grade schoolers in an after-school program.
This article doesn't merely report stereotypes, but rather reports on a newsworthy story about Dongyang Qu that is teaching Chinese language and culture to American students. Also, later in the article it talks about the differences from Beijing and Minnesota that Qu has encountered. Also, I feel an interesting angle to the story is when it brings in the business motives for teaching children the language. Qu said that many Americans want to go to Beijing because of the business opportunities it provides. Thus, learning about a foreign culture and language at an early age can benefit their future. Most of the article uses a observation and quotes from Qu. This provides color to the story. Some quotes rely on humor from the observation of the reporter, but the best quotes come from Qu. The first hand account she brings to the story allows the reader to identify with her and her efforts to teach American children.
