Topic: Different focus point parents teach their kids-American’s freedom of choice compare to Chinese’s dedication of hard-work
Purpose: I hope to research on the different ways parents in both America and China teach their children. What are both routines like, the similarities and distinctions. What is the advantages and disadvantages in both systems. Would the Chinese system work in American society? Or what are some key concepts of Chinese parenting American should consume from and what should the China adapt from America?
Writer: What got me interested in the topic is I am a Chinese international student studying abroad in the US. So I know how is it like to adjust to the American education system. What I grow up with and what new experiences I am having here in the state. The world stereotype Asian students as very academic and good at math because of the strict education guidelines and I am very interested in finding sources about different parenting styles in both America and China. What do people really think about the differences. Although my parents always talk about how I should study hard and such, they not the typical kind who would force the kids to study day and night to get perfect scores. Which led to my mediocre grades and lazy study habit. However, I gained so much confidence here in American I would never have if I were to stay in China. I would never come this far in life if I were only respected based on good grades on papers.
Audience: I would say apart from my peers, I expect educators from all over to be my audience and really listen to what I have to say about it and get some ideas out if it.
Work claim: My work claim will about instead of aiming for superficial success, aim for quality of life. Chinese parents should come to a understanding of there are more to life than good paying jobs. chinese shold adapt from Ame education.
Three supporting argument: (good if adapt)
#1 Would grow good studying habits in life
#2 Beyond the boring studying phases, would be very well-rounded and receive great knowledge
#3 Success in life at a satisfying level(mostly finically successful/fame)
Three counterarguments: (critial things, bad about ame edu.)
#1 There’s no such thing as free time and relaxation, but to work hard to climb the social ladder.
#2 Chinese education system left few space for creativity and exploration
#3 There’s more to pursue in life than finically secure, fame and success in work the final goal in life.
What types of evidence: *Statistics of jobs Asian&American pursue, *Expert testimony of culture studies about this education system gap, * Interviews of Asian American with immigrate parents(), *Facts of how two systems are like, etc…
Three possible research questions:
#1 What are the purposes two countries’ parenting try to accomplish?
#2 How to critically analysis the pros and cons of each sides, be balanced?
#3 How to insure sources are from legitimate origins?
