Abstract

This teacher diary study is a first attempt at applying the ancient Chinese military text, the 36 Stratagems, to contemporary education. China is one of the world's most ancient civilizations. Its classics are timeless and universal in that they embody a philosophy that is both multidimensional and holistic. For this reason, it is possible to apply ancient Chinese military texts to modern-day competitive situations that, whilst not necessarily on a battlefield, are highly competitive, such as the field of education. In examining the 36 Stratagems through this diary study, it is shown how they can inspire educators and students to use their tactical essence in a nurturing manner to achieve mutual victory against all the obstacles that stand in their way to scholarly success.
