Social Studies


A "Fukuganteki (integrative)" thinking skill means a way of looking at things from many different perspectives in a holistic approach. It is impossible for us to make black and white judgments about the incidents happening around us or in society. There is just as many different ideas or perspectives as there are the number of people. In GKA students are provided opportunities to become aware of the different perspectives while interacting with others in a proactive manner.

Contrary to conventional social studies classes simply focusing on obtaining knowledge, classes are designed to allow students to look at what they studied from diverse perspectives, analyze it and structure their own thinking. We nurture children's sense of curiosity, self-motivation and proactive learning attitudes while adopting the process of inquiry, making predictions, verifying, deepening and forming conclusions in class.
