A Videotape Study of Science Teaching in Shenzhen, China.
Wang, Jianjun; Zhu, Chunying
This report presents the results of a videotape study of science teaching in Shenzhen, China. Shenzhen is one of China's first special economic zones adjacent to Hong Kong. Developed from a small fishing village in the late 1970s, Shenzhen experienced fast economic growth in the last two decades, which has steadily increased the diversity of the population in the educational system. To facilitate assessment of Shenzhen's science educational practices, videotaped instructions were analyzed along with information from teacher surveys and student assessments at urban, suburban, and rural schools. Results indicate that the college entrance examination expectations have a strong influence on science teaching. Regional differences in science education also hinge on contextual factors such as teaching conditions and lab equipment. Contains 14 references. (Author/WRM)
