Bringing together educators from a range of backgrounds - psychology, sociology, social work, counseling, and teaching - this volume shows how Asian cultural values and beliefs can provide a lens through which to understand and envision how curriculum and pedagogy can be creatively adapted, not only in a local Chinese classroom context, but in a global context as well.
