I have been in China as a retired teacher from the USA for 7 years now. I have seen first hand how students who studied o many hours to get into a University think they can just relax and learn in college. Now when I start a new class I set high standards from day one.Give a course outline with all assignments required to complete this course.I-phones are not allowed in class.Attendence must be 90% or better to pass. They must participate daily, turn in all home work,prepare speaches as required,complete assigned research paper, and everything has a set due date.No exceptions. My exams include book,notes,and questions from every assignment. Students must be in seats before bell rings for I lock door at bell.Went fom maybe 15 late per class not allowed in to ZERO within 2 weeks of the start of each semester.I am demanding,but students always want to have me again the next semester for they actually want to prepare for a job.It is just that the majority of Professors allow students to play insteaad of being held accountable.We need all teacher to set higher standards and enforce them as I do.It does work.

Tell me how I can have a job like that. I have been retired from 25 years of public school teaching at the secondary level. But now I am wanting to return to the classroom, and regain my former passion, but teaching in the USA is extremely unfulfilling at the present. I filled out an application for teaching in China but no response. What is it like teaching Chinese students? Please share.

When China begins to utilize modern technology in higher education and advanced teaching methods, they will easily dominate in world education.
