(p.3) 1 The Regular Chinese Classroom
Learning Diversity in the Chinese Classroom

Shane N. Phillipson

Hong Kong University Press

This chapter begins with a discussion of the influence of Confucian-heritage culture (CHC) on learning and then describes the role of parental expectations in this process. The components of the Chinese classroom are then explored, including the processes that occur within the classroom, the physical environment, and curriculum and pedagogical approaches, such as the use of information communication technologies and the medium of instruction. Then the CHC approach to the nature and development of knowledge is explained, followed by its approach to learning, including the values placed on education, motivation and learning styles. The goal of this chapter is to describe the Chinese learner within the wider context of the classroom as a basis for understanding the diversity of learning within Chinese classrooms.

Keywords:   Confucian-heritage culture (CHC), Chinese classroom, Chinese learner
