Inside Japanese Classrooms: The Heart of Education

Synopsis

This detailed ethnographic study of fifth- and sixth-grade classrooms offers new insights into Japanese culture, as many aspects of daily social life are embedded in the educational system. Additionally, this book provides new perspectives on educational reform in the U.S.A., since many current issues and programs focus on notions of community, collaboration and systemic reform, all of which are central to understanding Japanese teaching-learning processes in schools.
