9780674021419: Teaching American Students: A Guide for International Faculty and Teaching Assistants in Colleges and Universities, Third Edition

Many faculty and graduate students from other countries expect language difficulties when they teach, but are unprepared for other surprises: different cultures make different assumptions about the academic background of college students, how students learn, the appropriate roles of teachers and students, and even the fundamental purpose of a college education.

The third edition of Teaching American Students explains the expectations of undergraduates at American colleges and universities and offers practical strategies for teaching, including how to give clear presentations, how to teach interactively, and how to communicate effectively. Also included are illustrative examples as well as advice from international faculty and teaching assistants. Appendices offer concrete suggestions on topics from planning the first day of class to grading papers and problem sets.

About the Author:

Ellen Sarkisian is an Associate Director of the Derek Bok Center for Teaching and Learning at Harvard University and the Educational Consultant at the Harvard School of Public Health.

Review:

A wonderful introduction to teaching in the United States. Any international scholar who attempts to help American students learn will appreciate the rich insights into the culture of the American Classroom. Full of practical wisdom that teachers can apply immediately, this book offers approaches to teaching and learning that any teacher will find useful. Ellen Sarkisian has thought extensively about what someone would want to know about helping American students learn and she has covered all of the bases in a well-written and concise introduction. I would recommend it strongly for any programs that work with international graduate students and other international scholars who teach in the United States. (Ken Bain, author of What the Best College Teachers Do)

Teaching American Students is a terrific primer and guidebook for all college and university teachers, not just those from other cultures. It lays out, in clear, clean prose, the issues and challenges confronting most teachers in modern higher education. (Donald Edwards, Georgia State University)

A highly readable, practical guide for international teaching assistants and an excellent reference for ITA educators. Each chapter provides useful information about teaching U.S. undergraduate students. Anecdotes and quotations from ITAs and faculty enhance and lend authenticity to the suggestions. (Rosslyn Smith, Professor of Spanish and Linguistics and Vice Provost for Outreach and Extended Studies, Texas Tech University)

This friendly guide is filled with pointers for all teachers, international or not. Perfect for the faculty or graduate student lounge as well as the resource bookshelf. Teaching American Students successfully alerts readers to many issues underlying teaching in the modern American classroom. Science and mathematics teachers will find the appendices, focused on teaching in specific disciplines, especially helpful. (Francis Su, Mathematics, Harvey Mudd College)
