Development and Practice of the Curriculum For
  Development and practice of the curriculum forthe Earth Systems Education at Seisho Super Science High School Nobumitsu Aihara (Seisho High School)Masakazu Goto (NIER)Outline of research(1)Current analysis and hypotheses of the research The scientific literacy of students is raised based on development of the curriculum whichutilizes the rich natural environments of the western Kanagawa areas such as Tanzawa,Hakone, Izu Peninsula, etc. efficiently, and scientific disaster prevention education. We havethe following five hypotheses to verify in the research. The concept of the earth systems iseffective as the foundation of knowledge integration , Understanding an area raises student's’awareness of disaster prevention , Scientific literacy heightens the effect of experiment and practice , The communication skills in English promotes internationalism , and Presentations of the study contents raises students’ true academic ability . (2) Details of research, the method, and verification In the school srcinal subjects, “Earth environments” (2 units, compulsory for 10 th gradestudents) and “SSH hour” (1 unit, compulsory for the 10 th grade students), they study how tofind their own theme, develop it and summarize it. The students study the natural disaster  prevention and “Seisho academia” (Science academia, mathematics academia and technologyacademia) in collaboration with universities. The school srcinal subjects, “SSH Science andmath practice” and “SSH environmental science practice”, raise the consciousness of 11 th and12 th grades students. All teachers of disciplined subjects in science design their lesson positively through experiment and observation. In order to raise their internationality andlanguage ability, 11 th and 12 th grade students take the lesson of scientific English by anuniversity professor or a fellow and make a homepage on the natural disaster prevention inEnglish. The teachers verify those hypotheses by pre and post questionnaires, investigations,reports and presentations by students. We will publish the “SSH book” at the end of the year and share the knowledge and result of the research. We also distribute the excellent works bystudents in CD. (3) Necessary special consideration of the curriculum The students learn the school srcinal subject “earth environments” on behalf of “infor mation A” (2 units) and “SSH hour” on behalf of the integrated study in the 10 th grade. The students of SSH course also take such school srcinal subjects as “natural sci  ence practice” (2 units for the 10 th grade), “SSH science and math practice” (1 unit for the 11 th and 12 th grades), and “SSH environmental science practice” (1 unit for the11 th and 12 th grades).The number of students : 950 (316 of the 10 th grade, 319 of the 11 th grade and 315 of the 12 th  grade) Subject name: Earth environments Grade: 10 th The number of units: 2 unitsSubject: Science and mathCompulsoryTextbook: srcinal teaching materialsSupplementary material: ABC studied by project study information training 1.   Objectives While making students understand the method to collect, arrange, analyze and expressinformation on the earth environment through experiments, observations etc., this course will foster students’ interest in earth environment, and creative and practical ability to solve problems of the earth environment actively and rationally. 2.   Assessment  Based on the following four viewpoints, the teacher evaluates the students’ status every periodof the learning content (it regards one period as each periodical examination) by using theevaluation matrix below, and summarizes by five-grade evaluation at the end of school year. ① interest, willingness, and attitude Interest in the natural phenomena and willingness to investigatethem.Attitude to consider the phenomena in relation to everyday life ② Thinking and judgment  Through observations and experiments, etc., capability to collect, utilize, analyze and synthesize the information and data, to learn the scientific process such as deduction and induction, and toconsider a phenomenon positively and logicallyGood judgment based on a phenomenon    ③ Skills and expression of observation and an experiment Basic operation skills of observations and experimentsCapability to express processes and results of them   scientifically ④ Knowledge and comprehension  Comprehension of the fundamental concept and principle on the natural phenomena.

And the beautiful scenery of the earth has been completed bythe air, the water, and change of the ground. In this lesson, we consider activities of the earthand their influence on a human life through the study about volcanoes, seismic activities, andatmospheric movement, and collect various information on earth environments. Finally, wework on the subject about earth environments,   science and technology, etc. and present theresult of our research. 4.   Contents and assessments Term The contents of study Method of assessment / viewpoints  1 st term(35units) 1.
