Spring Grass: A “Performed Culture” Approach to Advanced Mandarin is a set of advanced Chinese learning materials based on Chinese writer Qiu Shanshan’s novel Spring Grass and a 33-episode TV series of the same name, which aims to improve learners’ oral and written communication skills.There are 28 units in this textbook, and each unit has 5 sections, including listening, speaking, reading, writing in various languages and cultural activities. This design is mainly aimed at an advanced Chinese course of about 30 weeks in a school year, with 5 sections in a unit for 5 class hours.The first 14 units of study focus on listening and speaking, with an emphasis on developing students’ oral narrative skills. Teaching materials are mainly based on TV dramas, supplemented by novels. The focus of the last 14 units gradually changes from spoken to written language. Novel is the main source for students to obtain the plot of the story. Reading ability and written narrative ability are the focuses of this stage.The five sections in each unit correspond to five learning sessions, including: (1) questions and answers between the teacher and students for TV drama plots or novel chapters; (2) retelling activities based on story plots from the perspective of different characters; (3) in-depth discussions of literary techniques used in the novel and other topics; (4) discussions of cultural topics led by students; (5) writing tasks in different literary styles.In addition, in the last 14 units which focus on developing students’ written narrative skills, the textbook also adds the sixth activity: adaptation and performance of the television version of Spring Grass. Through these well-designed teaching activities, this textbook aims to help learners to continuously optimize the learning process and master the learning strategies for reading the original Chinese novels.

Preface

《体演<春草>:高级汉语视听说教程》(以下简称《体演<春草>》)是基于中国作家裘山山的长篇小说《春草》及同名三十三集电视连续剧编写的一套适合高级汉语学习者的学习材料,旨在帮助学习者增强汉语口头和书面的表达能力。本套学材期望学汉语的学生在与中国人交流的时候有较高的讲故事的水平,通过讲合适的故事使自己在交流中表现更佳,让普通的中国人,尤其是那些不常与外国人打交道的中国人对其产生好感,从而愿意将交流进行下去。事实上,我们所培养的很多汉语学习者正是通过学习《体演<春草>》这样一套高级汉语核心课程,学会了讲一连串的故事,由此获得了更多在目的语社会交流的机会,从而不断进步直至成功的。

这套学材及其相应的课程是依照体演文化教学法的理念设置的。在体演文化教学法中,学习讲故事的过程是积累对一门语言的文化记忆的过程,这些记忆的累积有助于学习者日后参与目的语文化中的交流。“春草”这个有着广泛读者群和观众群的故事题材,为学生提供了大量丰富且生动的故事。学生通过观察、分析、诠释小说和电视剧中形形色色的人物和复杂多样的社会关系,逐渐积累起一套有意义的目的语文化故事范本,以便于他们在未来适地、适时地将这些故事用到社交和工作中去。除了“春草”这个故事本身,这套学材也包含了一系列围绕观看《春草》电视剧和阅读《春草》小说而设计的课堂活动以及丰富的多媒体教学资源。这些反复打磨而成的教学活动与教学资源旨在帮助教师更有效地引导学生进行口头与书面的文化体演,并通过反复的体演,最终教会学生行之有效的学习技巧,以便他们在未来能自主阅读有一定长度的中文原版材料,由此更自如地享用目的语社会中的学习资源。

《体演<春草>》的目标
通过有效地完成本学材中呈现的语言、文化、社交任务,并依照本学材建议的学习过程循序渐进地进行学习,学生将有如下收获:
1.对20世纪中国社会所经历的变革和重大历史事件有一定程度的了解,掌握与中国人交流所需的一定的社会背景基础知识。“春草”故事题材中的主人公春草的经历在时间上贯穿了20世纪60年代到2000年前后的历史和现实,在空间上则横跨了当代中国社会的城市和乡村。她一生命运多舛,从农村到城市,换过十几份工作,整部小说可以说是一部个人在时代变迁中的奋斗史。小说体现了四十年的时间跨度,涉及包括“文革”结束、改革开放、炒股热、“下海”热、民工潮等一系列历史事件,尤其是中国城乡结构的激烈变动带来的各种矛盾、问题以及改革开放初期中国人思想观念的变化,这些都为学生日后与中国人交流提供了开启话题的素材,让他们看起来不再是对中国社会一无所知的“老外”。
2.具有较高的口头讲故事的能力,叙述时能做到语言流畅、准确,所讲故事有条有理也合情合理。这一目标正契合了美国外语教学委员会(ACTFL)对高级外语能力的测评要求,即能够讲述有细节、有条理的故事。可以说,成熟的叙述能力是学习者具备高级汉语水平最显著的标志。然而,这种能力并非与生俱来,即使是母语者,讲故事的能力也分高下。
