Confusion say...

With the uproar over Professor Amy Chua's "Battle Hymn of the Tiger Mother" and the comments on Kristoff's Sunday, January 16 column, I have begun to delve into the mysteries of Chinese education and parenting, which is to say Confucian teaching practices versus American teaching methods.

The main portion of my job will be at Northeast Normal University Middle Schools where I will be working with very advanced middle schoolers preparing them for the TOEFL. If any of you teachers out there have thoughts about teaching to the test, please post a comment to this blog.
