This book provides an overview of science education
policies, research and practices in mainland China, with specific examples of
the most recent developments in these areas. It presents an insiders' report on
the status of Chinese science education written primarily by native speakers
with first-hand experiences inside the country. In addition, the book features
multiple sectional commentaries by experts in the field that further connect
these stories to the existing science education literature outside of China.
This book informs the international community about the current status of Chinese science education reforms. It helps readers understand one of the largest science education systems in the world, which includes, according to the Programme for International Student Assessment, the best-performing economy in the world in science, math and reading: Shanghai, China.
Readers gain insight into how science education in the rest of China compares to that in Shanghai; the ways Chinese science educators, teachers and students achieve what has been accomplished; what Chinese students and teachers actually do inside their classrooms; what educational policies have been helpful in promoting student learning; what lessons can be shared within the international science education community; and much more.
This book appeals to science education researchers, comparative education researchers, science educators, graduate students, state science education leaders and officers in the international communities. It also helps Chinese students and faculty of science education discover effective ways to share their science education stories with the rest of the world.
