BBC (Producer). (2015). The school that turned Chinese [Video file].
The videos are in 3 segments. They are about a British school that experimented with two different teaching styles: the method they had been using, a more student-centered approach; and the Chinese method, a more teacher-centered approach. The school brought in five teachers from China to complete the experiment. The videos document this experiment with assessment and analysis of each approach.
