The skills of communication required
in the Future

In the future, the ability to think, make decisions, and express oneself will become more essential.
Science is a practical discipline that does not only a memorization,
but also a real skill of the combined knowledge of study.

By merely memorizing, you do not gain the ability to think critically and the power to express.

When people think about something, we usually start with basic questions, such as what? or which? And the longer we think about it, the more impressed we will be when we arrive at the answer. The more we ask deeper questions, the more wisdom we acquire.

That is why...

Tamaishiki S.D.W. cutivates strength of students can think and write descriptively.

People’s knowledge comes from the thought process of observing, questioning, and then finally understanding the concepts around them and they are all combined to become new logics. With S.D.W., students will learn to visualize the contents of the problem presented to them, think about possible solutions logically, and express the ideas eloquently through writing.

It is possible to create a whole new series of answers
in your head only through self-reflection and thought!

Three important skills required to
write and express answers.

  • Imagination:
    visualizing ideas in your mind
  • Thought:
    conceiving ideas logically
  • Articulacy:
    expressing ideas clearly effectively

In order to arrive at the answer, you must first understand the problem and visualize it in your mind. Imagination, thought and articulacy are some of the basic skills for students to organize and build up their solid idea. At the end of the class, students achieve their descriptive writing skills and articulacy. Tamaishiki S.D.W. is a science learning material for 4th to 6th-grade elementary school students that was developed to cultivate the skills naturally. It is a method to build up students' descriptive writing skills rapidly while train to think by themselves repeatedly.

POINT 01

Think over memorizing!
Text materials specialized in the descriptive writing that sharpens imaging, thinking, and Japanese language skills.

An excellent feature of the Tamaishiki S.D.W. is that most of the questions are specially made to be descriptive, which requires students to write their answers in word form.

POINT 02

Providing students with time to think and discover solutions on their own.
A "preparatory study" curriculum where students are expected to prepare before the class.

S.D.W. uses a "preparatory study" curriculum, where students study the lessons at home with video lectures and materials before coming to class for review. The original teaching materials combine easy-to-understand live-action videos, along with animated media that utilize ICT technology, allowing students to enjoy learning persistently without losing their interest. By studying before the classes, students can learn to think by themselves and develop the habit of thinking on their own. Additionally, when students discover the answers to the questions on their own, their sense of achievement becomes excitement of "I see," becomes even greater, giving them the motivation and confidence to learn.

POINT 03

Learn to think diversity through discussions!
Developing listening and speaking skills through "Active learning" style.

During class, each student will present their answers to the written questions and discuss each other's ideas. Children can develop further skills of their listening and understanding as well as discover new logics from other students what they say and think in the class. The ability to express one's own ideas can also be refined by listening to the ideas of others. Asking each other various questions and arriving at an answer will brush up students’ expressive abilities.
