Japanese and American Children's Reasons for the Things They Do in School.
Hamilton, V. Lee; And Others
American Educational Research Journal, v26 n4 p545-71 Win 1989
The reasons 184 American and 399 Japanese fifth-graders gave for achievement and good conduct in school were compared. Responses of Japanese children may reflect stronger identification with adult authority. Japanese children gave fewer external reasons for actions than their American counterparts. Implications for the study of motivation are discussed. (SLD)
