Ritsumeikan Uji Junior and Senior High School

Mr Higashitani, Mr Kubo, Mr Pryde

12th February, 2015

 

  • Ritsumeikan Uji Junior and Senior High School’s Dean of International Education, Mr Higashitani outlined the present framework, guiding school policies and details of the school and its close relationship to the Ministry of Education. Specifically, Mr Higashitani explained how the creation of the International Baccalaureate, 2009 ~ ) supported and consolidated school wide policies that focus through subjects taught in the IB, such as Theory of Knowledge (TOK). Policies are streamlined into other programme that the school offers, such as the IM (Immersion Program 2002 ~ ), SGH (Super Global High School, 2014 ~ ), Humanities/Science and Regular programmes.

 

  • Secondly, the Head of the International Centre, Mr Kubo outlined the structure and future guiding policies that undergo the Immersion Programme (IM – a programme in which students study abroad for 11 months in their first and second year and return for their final third year) as well as a further detailed breakdown of the school’s student intake, classes offered, and contacts founded. Explanations also centred around the numerous exchange programmes that Ritsumeikan Uji’s undertake (a total of 547 from the year 2000 until present) as well as the institutional and individual benefits that accrue from these challenges, such as the on-going cultural and global relationships with various academic institutions and volunteer organisations that feed back into continuing Ritsumeikan’s professional reputation of a school that strives to make dreams come true.

 

  • Finally, Mr Pryde, an English teacher from Ritsumeikan Uji provided a specific and practical conversational teaching strategy aimed at attaining more output from students. The particular technique proposed teachers as facilitators, advocating students to take a leading role in making their voices dominate the class. The conversational structure is termed “quadratic structure” and includes a framework for responding to a question using firstly a general (G) response followed by details (D) such as the when, how, who, etc., followed by students expressing their feelings (F), and finally a conclusion (C). The structure is a departure from traditionally led conversation classes and emphasises Ritsumeikan Uji’s leading and forward thinking educational environment.
