The writer of this paper, a student of teaching, observed a first grade classroom in an American school in Japan and compared the layout, activities being performed by the students and most importantly the relationship between the teacher and students to those in the U.S. The writer details the insight gained and the changes occurring in American classrooms overseas and how an individual's teaching philosophy is reflected in their interactions with the students.

From the Paper:

"Although Mrs. Martin does not base her lessons around a structured curriculum based on subject matter, she does emphasize math and reading, but uses a variety of methods in teaching these skills she considers to be very important for success in future grades. The classroom layout also represents progressivism in providing an environment where the children use collaborative learning by being seated in groups, rather than competition."
