There is a lack of representation of Southeast Asian culture and history in curriculums. If teachers and peers were exposed to this knowledge, then they would be understanding and have a positive mindset towards the students due to their new contextual knowledge. It would also make the students feel more connected to what they are learning. It gives them a purpose to become more educated not only for themselves, but also for their greater community. There is also a lack of Southeast Asian educators for students to look up to as role models.
For instance, Asian students in larger classes is a counter claim to the benefits of smaller classes. According to Zorpette, students in Asian countries like Japan, despite being in the large class sizes, have a good performance on standard tests rather than the students who study in small classes in the United States (Zorpette, 2001). However, Zorpette argues that there are many factors that contributed to academic achievement in Japan for example; Asian parents are less likely to be divorced and are more likely to be involved in their children’s education. Also Lewis an expert on Japanese educational system says, “Japan’s prowess in academic achievement is also sustained by something it doesn’t have: ethnic and linguistic diversity (as cited in Zorpette, 2009). However, Zorpette claims that because of deep cultural difference in other countries like America, it is not really clear if the Asian countries’ experience will work in other countries as well (Zorpette, 2009).
(Zorpette, 2001). However, it is not practical to compare Japan with the USA because the US is a multination country with different types of ethnicities that have different types of cultures. People in the United States strongly believe in individualism while in Japan the group orientation is strongly
Asian Americans have also had a drastic change in public perceptions over the years. For example, the celebrated Dr. Seuss supported Japanese American internment and created propaganda in its favor(Guo). These leads many to wonder about Asian American citizens enigmatic rise to a more respected position and what was the cost of these new stereotypes(Ocampo et. al,683). Stereotypes of East Asians, including the model minority stereotype, have a complex history and lead to negative effects both in education,socially, and in the workplace.
Nowadays, many of the characteristics of both the Korean and Japanese cultures are traced back to Chinese influences. China was seen as a model society by growing nations because of large size and historic success in all sectors of the country. China played a crucial role in the maturity of Japan and Korea since they were able to advance both culturally and politically. In most cases, the cultural interworking’s of the three countries are
However, it was tough for Asian parents to be immigrants because they spend lots of time and money to come to the USA without any support in the past. When children heard about their burdensome stories, that stimulated and encouraged them to succeed. However, they were getting tired to work on their degrees due to their parents’ expectations. Most Asian American parents expect their children to be successful in the future. This kind of culture related to their traditional education which is parents have to be good examples then let children to imitate.
Naturally, this absorption of East Asia in Western Society has strongly altered the discourse on East Asian culture and its people and continues to do so. This essay will examine the role media has in this still ongoing process. By analysing the most influential casts, the East Asian as portrayed by the Yellow Peril and the East Asian American model minority, and elaborating on their origin and impact, this essay will attempt to expound the influence of media on the discourse on East Asian culture and
Korea and China are major countries representing the Oriental culture or Eastern culture in Asia. However, both nations also possess their own unique features such as politics, economy and culture which are different from one another. This Study is to compare the two different language versions and explain the reasons based on the cultural background and based on the point of paratext. Secondly, the study focuses on the paratext, not the main text of the book. Translation of children’s book is characterized by strong intervention by the translators to bridge the gap.
Does localisation make it Asian despite the fact that initially it was derived from the Western? In another ten years, what will happens to the Asian distinctiveness? Will it withstand against the Western globalisation of media or eventually fall apart and slowly start to adapt with what currently dominating the world. With that being said, it is not saying that Westernisation is not good but the process of recognising Asian owns culture is also playing\ a big role to maintain its genuine
