Weather: Cloudy Plan: Akagi JHS

The 8th and 9th grade classes started today. We are splitting up the English and math classes into two groups starting this year. Akagi Junior High School only has 99 students, that makes one grade level about 33 students in size. In Japan, if one grade level is over 40 students, the students are split into two classrooms, but if there are up to 39 students they stay as one class. In a class that large it is hard to learn anything, so we are trying out splitting the classes in half for English and Math. I wonder how it will turn out...

  • :P At every class in my big school, we've got 37 or 38. It S_U_C_K_S. I wish Japan would drop the level down to 25 or so. I remember reading somewhere that the ideal number for a classroom is between 23 and 27 or something like that in some study. In my smallest school, it's like 18-23 students a class, and it works so awesome. 30+ is a zoo. >_
    • I am looking forward to the seperate classes. It shoudl improve our teaching abilities, one hopes!
