64- The Chinese Paradox: How Traditional China Trumps U.S. Reform Attempts

Thursday, April 14, 2011: 9:30 AM-10:30 AM
111/112 (Convention Center)
Lead Speaker:
Thomas Ricks

Using video of urban Chinese math classes and professional development, the speaker will explain the puzzling paradox for how seemingly traditional Chinese educational methods—large, teacher-centered, lecture-based classes; exam-driven curricula; and so on—produce students who excel over their U.S. peers, despite the United States's recent reform attempts initiated by the NCTM.
