Liberal Arts Island that is unique facilitie

Education at LI

The society that surrounds us is made up of diverse human beings. The communication ability and presentation ability to understand the other person and understand oneself while living in different environments and cultures and interacting with people with different values is a society that demonstrates one’s own ability. It is a very important force to contribute to.
LI is a place to develop the power required to play an active role in society, such as the power to discover and consider issues, the power to collect and analyze information, the power to think, the power to collaborate, and the power to express. It will be a base for project-type learning that clarifies individual problem awareness, shares it with each other, and connects to deeper “self-knowledge” and “social knowledge” from new awareness gained by returning to the individual and looking back. It is used for activities to exchange and disseminate opinions through group discussions and presentations in other subjects and general learning / club activities, including the “Time for Knowledge Techniques” class in the Japanese language course and the “Basic Inquiry” class in the junior high school 3rd year.
In collaboration with “time for comprehensive inquiry” in the senior high school, we regard off-campus learning such as school trips as an opportunity for project-type learning and use LI as a place for planning and preparation, and for presenting and exhibiting results. The theme of the senior high school 2nd year school excursion is “what we can do to realize peace”, and in Nagasaki we are conducting peace learning through self-training in the city and lectures on the experience of the atomic bombing. Furthermore, we have moved the field to Okinawa to discuss base issues.


Club activities conducted by LI

In the fiscal year of 2016, we launched the LI Department (Liberal Arts Island Department) and are developing academic activities on various themes related to humanities and social sciences, such as news, political economy, geography, history, and literature. So far, we have participated in mock trials by all members and applicants, participation in the National High School Education Model United Nations Convention and the Association of Japanese Geographers (senior high school students), and participation in educational forums (junior high school students). In addition, by applying for various contests and teaching essays, we will develop the necessary skills after going out into society, such as finding problems, collecting information, logical thinking, and verbalizing intentions, as well as for new university entrance exams and overseas university entrance exams. We are proceeding with initiatives that can also be utilized.
