Learning and Teaching in the Chinese Classroom

Responding to Individual Needs

Shane N. Phillipson and Bick-har Lam

Hong Kong University Press

This book provides an essential starting point for understanding the contexts of learning and teaching in the Chinese classroom. Drawing upon recent research in Hong Kong, Taiwan, Singapore and China, the book will bridges the gap between traditional texts on educational psychology and the unique nature of the Chinese learner and their teacher.
This book is packed with ideas to enable the reader to review and reflect upon teaching and learning from a range of perspectives. Designed primarily as a text for beginning teachers, it highlights major thinking which can inform educational practice. The book pays welcome attention to the needs of Chinese learners and the social context in which young Chinese learners develop. Janet Draper, Hong Kong Baptist University
