The first is scheduled for the coming Thursday 13 October, at 1.45 pm in Room 202 of Runme Shaw Building. We will show part of the movie: Preschool in Three Cultures Revisited: China, Japan, and the United States.
The comparative work of Joseph Tobin and colleagues is renowned for both its methods and its insights. Preschool classrooms in Japan, China and the US were videotaped and then commented upon not only by teachers from those cultures but also by teachers in other cultures. The study was first conducted in the 1980s and then repeated in the 2000s, thereby delivering comparisons over time as well as place. Join us to gain insights not only from the researchers but also from yourself and peers as you watch these video scenes.
