A Mirror for Americans : What the East Asian Experience Tells Us about Teaching Students Who Excel, Hardback Book

A Mirror for Americans : What the East Asian Experience Tells Us about Teaching Students Who Excel Hardback

Description

What is the explanation for American students' comparatively mediocre academic performance?

A Mirror for Americans finds part of it in how they are taught in primary schools.

Comparisons with East Asian teaching are supplied by 50 years of research findings.

Grove asks not that we copy East Asian teaching approaches, but that we use them as a mirror to gain insights into typically American approaches and their underlying values, which are handicapping our children's learning.
