Has this new procedure been studied well enough that it is know what students it works for and which students are best served by other teaching methods? Does it work with American children as well as Japanese children, with all the cultural differences in achievement motivation and work ethic? When you have a classroom with average, gifted, and below average students, how does the lesson meet everyone's needs? Thanks much for the information. This practice is new to me, and I like to understand what is being proposed by my child's school.
