Featured Webinar

Connecting the Cultural Divide: What Do Great Teachers in the United States and China Do?

April 29, 2014, 3:00 p.m. ET

James Stronge
Leslie Grant

Teaching practice occurs in specific cultural settings and evolves in ways that can reflect the underlying cultural values advocated and nurtured by the wider society. In the ASCD book West Meets East, authors Leslie Grant and James Stronge focus on what teachers in the East (China) can learn from their counterparts in the West (United States) and vice versa.

The United States and China—two nations that are drastically different in demographics, history, political systems, and socioeconomic status—also differ dramatically in teaching systems and instructional practices.

With that in mind, they set out to answer a set of questions regarding effective teachers in the two countries, not least of which were: What beliefs and practices of effective teachers are common to both U.S. and Chinese teachers? What beliefs and practices are unique to each culture?

In many school visits, teacher interviews, and observations Grant and Stronge uncovered striking and exciting similarities and differences among teachers. This webinar will focus on sharing stories that illuminate how teachers in each country viewed their personal relationships with students, planning as a part of the instructional process, best practices in instructional delivery, and classroom management and student engagement.
