How do you think this integration affects Chinese American children growing up in

Asian American families confront a large number of stressors and difficulties. Some are general
life stressors, while others are more exceptional to Asian Americans as an ethnic and social
gathering. The kind of stress and difficulties, be that as it may, likewise changes crosswise over
ethnicity and culture, nation of birthplace, cultural assimilation level, training, dialect abilities,
relocation history, social class, and length of residency in the United States. These relevant
wellsprings of stress and test start both at the more extensive societal level and inside individual
families. They specifically or by implication impact parent-youngster connections, couple's
connections and control structures.

New Asian settler and evacuee families confront the pressure identifying with their movement
encounter, also, the progressing changes in accordance with the new culture also, new life. The
evacuating procedure of movement is testing, since it cracks the current informal organization.
The family additionally battle to get another dialect and culturally assimilate to the new
condition. Family issues and strain are more liable to emit because of these progressions. How
do they manage to balance family and peer (non- Confucian) groups? How does Confucianism
influence the Asian food culture? Lastly, how do you think this class would be conducted
differently if it was conducted in a Confucian style?

Albeit some Asian American gatherings, such as Japanese, Chinese, and Korean Americans,
have been in the United States for some ages, they are as yet considered nonnatives due to their
physical attributes. Racial separation is a basic hazard factor for mental disarranges and other
mental issues Studies of Asian American family qualities remain inconsistent and is a subject
that warrants more insightful consideration and research later on. In a nutshell, diverse cultures
face a number of difficulties in adjusting in the American culture and norms.

2. How do they manage to balance family and peer (non- Confucian) groups?

Asian Americans are quite diverse in terms of nationalities, languages, ethnicities, and cultural
traditions. The three largest Asian American populations in the United States, accounting for
about 60% of the total Asian population, are Chinese. Mostly Chinese are following
Confucianism but when they lived in USA then they will try to manage balance in relation
between American and other living nations. Because when a man is living in a environment he
face different kind of people there, so he will try adopt the manner of these people for making a
relation with them. Same case Chinese are doing in USA to make relation other nations in the
form of peers and others adopting some customs of these peoples.

As part of the immigrant family system, children are also impacted by the changes in the
familial, social, political, and economic contexts due to the migration. However, very little
research has comprehensively examined the experiences, and particularly, stress in Asian
American children. Growing up in the United States, they straddle two different worlds, their
minority culture as well as the dominant society. Sometimes, they are forced to integrate
conflicting values and beliefs, living in an individualistic society while upholding collectivist
traditions. Similar to their parents, Asian American children also face racism and discrimination
in their social life. Specifically, children of newly arrived immigrant and refugee families often
find themselves facing many new responsibilities. Because they tend to acculturate and acquire
the language faster than their parents, children often become a social and language broker for
their parents. Children often encounter situations that they may not be ready or adequately
prepared for. They are placed in adult settings, in the center of adult interactions, being exposed
to medical, financial, and other personal information, and forced to make decisions that might
not be appropriate for children. In the process of carrying out these new roles to help their
family, parental power has to be compromised and family dynamics are changed.

Asian American individuals may be alienated from peers or coworker and their issues may not
receive enough attention or warrant the same type of social and community support. As a result,
their relationship with these groups in the social context may be strained.

3. How does Confucianism influence the Asian food culture?

The craft of Chinese cooking has been created and refined over numerous hundreds of
years. Sovereign Fu instructed individuals to angle, chase, develop yields and cook
twenty centuries previously Christ. Anyway cooking couldn't be viewed as a
workmanship until the considerable established time of China, the Chou Dynasty 1122-
249 B.C.

The two overwhelming methods of insight of the Chinese culture are Confucianism and
Taoism. Each affected the course of Chinese history and the advancement of the culinary
expressions. Confucianism worried about the craft of cooking and set awesome
accentuation on the pleasure throughout everyday life. To the Chinese, nourishment and
companions are indivisible. A social affair without nourishment is viewed as fragmented
and ill-advised.

Confucius cherished and regarded the craft of cooking. He set up culinary norms and
appropriate table behavior. A large portion of these are as yet thought to be the
benchmarks of today. The convention of cutting sustenance into chomp estimate pieces
amid arrangement and not at the table is extraordinary to the Chinese culture. The
utilization of blades at a Chinese supper is viewed as "poor taste."

Confucius encouraged that great cooking relies upon the mixing of different fixings and
sauces instead of the essence of the individual components. He trusted that with a specific
end goal to wind up a decent cook one should initially be a decent intermediary. The
kinds of the fixings must be mixed with agreement. Without this congruity there is no
taste. He additionally focused on the utilization of shading and surface in the introduction
of the dish. Definitely Confucianism hoisted cooking from a modest errand to the status
of a craftsmanship, "the specialty of Chinese cooking." This deep impact of the legacy
can be witnessed till day and will be prominent for years to come as its very ancient and
deep rooted.

4. Lastly, how do you think this class would be conducted differently if it was
conducted in a Confucian style?
I think there will be a little bit difference between Confucian style and in this, if course is
in Confucian style its almost same approach of ours. Confucianism is enjoying a revival
in China as well as gaining international attention thanks to the political and economic
resurgence of China.
Confucian pedagogy consists on some attitudes, these are described below:
 Careful selection and flexible application of the teaching materials
Confucius composed and edited his teaching materials based on the traditional six
classics: Classic of Poetry, Classic of history, Classic of Changes, Classic of Rite,
The Spring and Autumn Annals.
 Improve students' motivation, Independent thinking
He required fellows to guide and direct students' learning. He let students learn
new knowledge based on reviewing the old.
 Consider the difference of individuals, the learning process and the attitude.
He claimed teachers should teach based on different needs. The learning process
should combine learning, reflection and practices.
 Ask and answer teaching model
He was good at asking questions to motivate students' thinking.
 Emphasis on moral education
He passed on his morals from three aspects knowledge, humanity and courage
 Teamwork
He encouraged his students to discuss and collaborate, help improve each other.

There are obviously many similarities on teaching philosophies and methods between two great
thinkers. Because education is a process which needs communication with students, delivering
the right knowledge to the right student in a right way.

Meanwhile we can see one basic difference between them is that, Confucius put teacher as a
central role in teaching process. He is the leader, he is informative, he sometimes can't be
challenged. It leads to Chinese students' lack of creative mind and critical thinking. However,
Chinese students are quiet obedient and hardworking.
On the contrary, Socratic method is more "student centered" approach. Students are not taught
what is right, what need to be memorized. Instead, they know how to think and reasoning with
logic. Without barriers, western students tend to be more creative and open minded.
