新聞を活用した授業/Using Newspapers in the Classroom


GKA has been selected as a national NIE(Newspaper In Education) school since 2019 and encourages use of newspapers in class.


Grade 7 students challenged the concours of “Read together Newspaper.”   In the lesson, each student got a newspaper and choose an article which he/she is interested in.   They wrote an opinion and shared the article to get another opinion.   Finally, they made suggestions integrating two opinions.    This activity promotes proactive, interactive and authentic learning suggested by MEXT.
