Outline of Jishukan SGH Project

1. What is SGH?

  SGH stands for “Super Global High School”, which is certified by the Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology (MEXT). It aims at fostering leaders who can find social problems from global perspectives and solve them at the global level. The leaders are also expected to play important roles in the field of international business. Our school was designated as SGH on March 31st, 2015.

2. The name of our SGH project

“Development of global leadership through interactions including international symposia with British and German students”

3. Summary

We carry out programs (from (a) to (e) below) so that our students can gain abilities to be global leaders who can share the future image of Japan. They are expected to exercise the abilities when they (1) find and solve problems, (2) think logically and critically, (3) make persuasive presentations in English, and (4) understand different cultures.

Throughout the programs, students try their project studies on five main themes: “Symbiotic Society and Education”, “History and Culture”, “Economic Development and Environment”, “International Politics and Diplomacy” and “Japan’s International Contribution and Cooperation”. All the programs below are all based on our school spirit: “Think and Act Independently.”

(a) Curriculum development

We set the following original subjects of our school.

[SG Exploration into Asia]

Students first learn basic knowledge to understand the situation of Japan as a country of Asia, and then start their project studies in groups. They select their research topics based on the five main themes and finally make a presentation in front of other students.

[SG International Exploration]

Students keep carrying out their studies, seeing Japan as a country of the world, with what they have learned in “SG Exploration into Asia”.

[SG Exploration into Global Society]

Students carry out individual studies based on their future course so that they can investigate what kind of role they should play in the global society.

[SS&SG Logical Thinking Communication (LTC)]

Students improve the ability to think logically and critically. They also cultivate the ability to discuss in groups effectively; to communicate information effectively and persuasively in order to improve the quality of their project studies.

[SS&SG English for Social Purposes (ESP) I・II]

Students consider history, culture, environment and society of English-speaking countries through expression activities. They also have opportunities to discuss global problems. They are expected to make full use of what they learn in selecting and understanding their research topics, while cultivating the ability to understand different cultures.

[SG Exploration into Japanese Culture I・II]

Students understand Japanese tradition and culture by reading critiques, novels and classics. They also communicate information about them through debates and presentations.

(b) SGH developed studies

[Cooperative program with universities, companies, international institutes in Japan]

We cooperate with universities and companies so that our students can deepen their understanding about global problems, develop attitudes as business people who can play active roles in international stages, and enhance their critical thinking skills. With the help of international institutes, we also have students think which role Japan should play in the global society.

[Cooperative program with exchange students in universities]

We have our students discuss opinions continuously with exchange students in universities to deepen our students’ understanding about global problems. We also ask the exchange students for advice in the process of our students’ carrying out their project studies.

(c) SGH overseas studies

Before carrying out their project studies in the following programs, students deepen their understanding about the present situation and challenges of both Japan and the surrounding Asian countries.

[Training for study trip]

We set opportunities for students to be given lectures and advise gradually and intensively by experts and outsourced teachers on

“History and Culture”, one of the five main themes of their project studies. Through the presentation sessions and the international symposia, which are held both in Japan and at our sister schools in England and Germany, students aim at developing the abilities and attitudes necessary to become global leaders: those who can find and solve problems, understand different cultures and express themselves in English.

[Study trip to England, to Germany and to Malaysia]

Students visit England and Germany. These visits are based on our sister school partnership. They make presentations about their project studies and have discussions on the topics at sister schools. They also attend lectures and workshops on the five main themes of their project studies, in universities and companies. These opportunities will provide them with knowledge and experience beneficial to their future studies including the international symposia.

In addition, this year 5-7 students will visit to Penang, Malaysia. On this trip the students will have several programs as well as on the trip to England and Germany.

[International symposia by high school students of England, Germany and Japan]

Every October exchange students from our sister schools (St. Paul’s School, St. Paul’s Girls’ School and Otto-von-Taube Gymnasium) visit our school for a week. We host the international symposia with the exchange students. In the symposia, students are expected to propose and discuss global challenges in English, making the most of what they learn in their project studies, and to deepen their understanding about the topics.

(d) SGH cultural fieldwork [called “SG Culture”]

We set opportunities for students to attend lectures and obtain advice by experts and outsourced teachers from universities, research institutes and companies to carry out fieldwork. They are encouraged to get interested in “History and Culture”, one of the main themes of their project studies and to deepen their understanding of what they research in their projects.

(e) SGH special lectures

We invite experts and outsourced teachers in order to awaken students’ eagerness for exploration study and to deepen their understanding about global problems and business matters.

(f) Other programs

[Club activities]

We have reorganized English Club into Foreign Language Club, which aims to cultivate the ability to play important roles in global society with the help of outsourced teachers. We also have established History Club so that students can learn the historical relationship between Japan and other Asian countries; they can properly recognize the position of Japan in Asia from historical perspectives.
