West Meets East: Best Practices from Expert Teachers in the U.S. and China

Working on the basis that great teachers are fundamental to successful student outcomes, this book examines the practices of successful teachers in two countries, the United States and China; highlights successful practices from both countries; and reflects on ways in which the East and West have much to learn from each other. The book includes chapters focused on a range of topics, including instructional practice and classroom organization and management, and a chapter-by-chapter study guide to encourage thoughtful reflection.
