Before a class at Chongqing University of Posts and Telecommunications was dismissed last Friday, every student received a gift from teacher Xiong Anya – a lollipop and a bilingual hand-drawn card. After receiving the gift, many students exclaimed, “Ms. Xiong is too kind and adorable!” Ms. Xiong said the reason for her drawings is to encourage greater student participation in class. Students also receive “hug coupons” which permit them one hug each. She hopes that by reducing the distance between teachers and students, students will feel more comfortable asking questions and voicing criticism.
