Global Meikyo Research Program for 2nd grade

Filed under: - sgh-admin @ 16:34

   Yesterday, Oct. 26th, SG course members of 2nd grade had a class of Global Meikyo Research Program. We welcomed Mr. Sato, Professor of Keio University, and Ms. Nakamura, Professor of Kyoto University, and both taught and made advice toward the students especially about the research each student are handling.
   Ms. Nakamura talked mainly about Kenya, and 2 students wore the ethnic costume of Masai she brought. Masai’s ethnic costume had bright colors and it was very beautiful. It suit with the students.
   All the members are now working hard toward the interim report presentation doing in Dec.14th.

Home Visit

Filed under: - sgh-admin @ 16:28

   On Oct. 24th, two trainees, both from Africa under the Training Program for Young Leaders of JICA, visited our students’ home. Home visit is a kind of home stay, without staying. Two students and their family whom welcomed each trainee had a very interesting experience. Down below is comments from the students.

♦At first, I was worried about communicating in English, but as a matter of fact, I was able to have conversation, even though I sometimes was stuck for what to say, and able to explain about Matsuyama. It was a fun day! This was my first experience to speak English all day long, and I think my English skill has been trained well. My family, whom was a first time to meet a foreigner, also said it was a good experience, so I feel that accepting a home visit was a good decision. Now a global wind is blowing in my house!

♦In the beginning, I was confused because I didn’t had a chance to have communication with a person from Africa. The woman I welcomed was from Nigeria, so I researched about the country before her visit, but couldn’t understand well, which made me afraid whether she could enjoy or not. Although, she was a very peppy person, she was excited at an automaton clock on Dogo, foot bath, and Yoroi (Japanese armor) wearing at Matsuyama castle. I was glad she seems to have fun all day! When she took Purikura photo, she was amazed at the photo which made her eyes bigger. She seems to be interested in Purikura photo, because she said “I hope I have it in my country”. While moving to each places, she asked me about prices of cars and smart phones, related to her government-affiliated work. As for the foods, it didn’t seem to suit her but she liked the Pom juice (juice of Orange and Mandarin Orange, famous juice made in Ehime).
   Through this experience, I thought that I still don’t know well about Africa. From now on, I would like to look more to the world, especially the countries in Africa.

CLIL in badminton club again

Filed under: - sgh-admin @ 16:12

   Few days ago, Mr. Izuan visited our badminton club again. (Check blog on 4/20/2015 for information of last time.) This was his last coaching since he had to go back to his home country on Oct. 26th. His coaching was done all in English like before. Other than the skills of badminton, he taught students the good points of Japan and Japanese, points to train more, and other things which students cannot learn in school.

   From today, Badminton club is expressing all of their skills and effort to the New Face Competition of Ehime.

Global Meikyo Research Program for 1st grade

Filed under: - sgh-admin @ 10:44

   On Thursday Oct 15th, 1st grade’s Global Meikyo Research Program was held. Since we had some school events and examination scheduled, it took a month since the first lesson which was on Sep 17th. Each student worked along with their teacher, for example, listened to their teacher’s lecture, separate in groups to work with, or measured radiation by using a survey meter.
   Although we had a month of blank, this class will be held for 6 weeks in a row, and this will be an important time for students to decide what they are going to research.

A class to learn a successful presentation

Filed under: - sgh-admin @ 12:50

   Yesterday, October 15th, as a curriculum of Research Program for 2nd graders, a class about how to make a successful presentation and poster was held by our International Exchange Advisor Ms Michiko Murakami. Ms Murakami taught students in a very understandable power point presentation, that to “plan” before starting to make documents and to make it simple is important.
   We prefer our 2nd graders to make an understandable presentation in sessions we are scheduling on December and March.
