The Teaching Gap
Library Home || Full Table of Contents || Library Help
|A site supporting a book by James W. Stigler and James Hiebert in which they point out that teaching is a cultural activity. "Although there are teachers using extraordinary methods in all cultures, the extraordinary is not what defines most students' classroom experiences. Students' day-to-day experiences are mainly determined by the methods most commonly used by teachers within a culture. Cross-cultural differences in these commonly used methods are what we have termed the 'teaching gap'."
