How do children become eager, motivated learners and caring, responsible citizens? Educating Hearts and Minds, a portrait of Japanese preschool and early elementary education, offers a fresh perspective on these questions. Its thesis - which will surprise many Americans - is that Japanese schools are successful because they meet children's needs for friendship, belonging, and contribution. This book brings to life what actually happens inside Japanese classrooms. What do children learn? How do they learn? What values are emphasised, and how are they taught? In a sharp departure from most previous accounts, this book suggests that Japanese education succeeds because all children - not just the brightest or best-behaved - somehow come to feel like valued members of the school community. Ironically, Japanese teachers credit John Dewey and other progressive Western educators for many of the techniques that make Japanese schools both caring and challenging. This book brings to a wider readership the voices of Japanese classroom teachers - voices that are at once deeply consonant with Western aspirations and deeply provocative.

Catherine Lewis is a distinguished research scholar at Mills College in Oakland, California. With colleague Rebecca Perry, she has conducted a series of federally-funded research studies that illuminate how lesson study is successfully adapted and sustained in the U.S., including recent randomized trials that demonstrate the impact of lesson study on students' learning and teachers' learning. Fluent in Japanese, Lewis published the first English-language articles and videotapes on lesson study. She is a graduate of Harvard University (B.A.) and Stanford University (Ph.D) and the author of more than 40 publications on elementary education and child development, including the award-winning book Educating Hearts and Minds: Reflections on Japanese Preschool and Elementary Education (Cambridge University Press, 1995).
