さて、高校のカリキュラムが進み始めて 3 カ月。生徒たちはさすがに、これまでとは異なる質と量に

することになります。少し早く学んだことではありますが、ここから得られるのは知識だけではなく、

あれば生物の塩基配列の割合の計算などは、数学の割合の計算そのものであり、かつ計算を導くまでに
は「A と T」
「C と G」がセットであることを知り、結びつける判断力が必要となります。こういった能力
は、将来どのような職業でも必要とされる能力の一つです。

なことだと強く信じています。
It is already middle of July and the students seem to have begun their planning for the summer.
They are also starting to prepare their schedule for the examination that is coming up immediately
after the holidays.
It has now been 3 month since they began the contents of their high school curriculum. I’m
sure that all of the students are feeling somewhat overwhelmed by the difference in both the content
and the amount of material they now have to face. Nevertheless, students from other schools will
be starting the same content in a year. So while it is true that the timing is earlier than normal,
it is also important to pay attention to the fact that Linden Hall students will acquire not only
subject-specific information from these courses but also other essential skills such as improved
creativity, better expressiveness, and more mature attitude towards academics. For example, in
the sciences, in learning to calculate the base sequence of nucleotides, the students are
performing the same operation as that of ratio calculations for mathematics, Further, students
also must be able to conclude that “A & T””C & D”are in sets even before they start their
calculations. Basic analytical skills like these are critical for success in any profession.
Thus for all students, I would like to stress the importance of persistence and not giving up
until you thoroughly understand the assigned material.

して、小学生の頃には自分で借りて読み、中高になると日本の生徒の多くは、本を読まなくなるそうで
す。私の子供が 5 歳で、毎日寝る前に１話子供向けの話を読んで聞かせています。一番のお気に入りは
「怪談レストラン」です。中高生で本を読むことは、他人の人生を生きることに等しいものと思います。

を続けて欲しいと思います。
Are the students reading at home as requested last month?
It is said that most Japanese
students are often read to in youth and utilize the library on their own during elementary school
age, but they stop reading at around junior and senior high school age. My child is 5 years
old and I make sure that I read 1 children’s story everyday before he goes to sleep. His favorite
story is ‘Kwaidan Restaurant.’
allows us to experience the lives of the characters in the stories. Also, the ability to read
original works in English is a very rare advantage that only Linden Hall students have. Even
from the perspective of acquiring genuinely global perspectives, I would like to remind all
students to continue reading as much as they can.

においては、特に感情移入や論理的説明が求められる時、課題を解決するときに、どうして

お願いいたします。
I feel that one of the most important skill students need to have in order to adequately
comprehend high school level materials at junior high school age, is maturity and life
experience. In most subjects, students’ values, emotions, consciousness are all tested as
they are asked to evaluate the material rationally or in other circumstances, empathize
emotionally. In literature courses, in particular, perspectives on friendship or delicate
differences between in the sentiments of men and women, often comprise important themes
of literary works and appropriate understanding in such disciplines can not be acquired
unless experienced.
A year from age 15 t0 16 might make for immense difference in such awareness but we
are able to compensate for this through conversations with adult members and through
reading. There are many things to be learned from the wisdom of elders and we can
become more complete from listening to their perspectives. In this regard, I hope that the
students will re-evaluate the importance of conversations with their families.
