The Invisible Culture: Communication in Classroom and Community on the Warm Springs Indian Reservation

She reveals the ways in which the daily interactions among the teachers and students place the Indian children in a subordinate position not only by virtue of their status as children and students relative to adult teachers, but also as Indians relative to the dominant Euro- American culture. A classic in the fields of educational anthropology and sociolinguistics, this volume offers much to the understanding of the organization of communication in the classroom.

While this book is ostensibly about the experience of the Warm Springs children, it also expresses important insights for anyone who seeks to understand the role of language in culture. With an approach that balances both theory and application, Philips explores the experience of Warm Springs Indian children in an American school.

Preschool in Three Cultures: Japan, China and the United States

In china, for example, preschools are expected to provide an antidote to the spoiling that Chinese fear is inevitable in an era of single-child families. As the numbers of mothers in the workforce grows, and parents feel under greater pressure to give their children an educational headstart, industrialized societies are increasingly turning to preschools to nurture, the role of the extended family diminishes, educate, and socialize young children.

 . The method used is innovative: the authors first videotaped a preschool in each culture, then showed the tapes to preschool staff, parents, and child development experts. Through their vivid descriptions of a day in each country's preschools, conformity, we are drawn into a multicultural discussion of such issues as freedom, creativity, and American evaluations of their own and each other's schools,  Japanese, and Chinese, photographs made from their videotapes, and discipline.

Drawing on their backgrounds in anthropology, tobin, human development, and Davidson present a unique comparison of the practices and philosophies of Japanese, and education, Wu, Chinese, and American preschool education and discuss how changes in childcare both reflect and affect larger social change.

In all three nations, rather than being radical or transforming, preschools, function to conserve values believed to be threatened by social change. Americans look to preschools not only to teach reading and to encourage children to be creative, expressive, and independent but also to provide a stability and richness otherwise missing from many children's lives.

Japanese preschools, surprisingly for many Americans, deemphasize discipline and academics and instead stress the teaching of group interaction to a generation of overly sheltered children.
