SELHi in Action

The Daily Yomiuri this week ran the ninth installment in a series on the government-designated Super English Language High School (SELHi) pilot project. The report looked at a Mie Prefecture public school which was designated a SELHi in April 2002. The school has had setbacks in developing a curriculum based on new ideas and teaching methods, but has also learned a lot from the experience. The curriculum – which to date has focused on improving students' writing skills – applies only to selected students, whose progress is compared to those on the standard track. Teachers also elicit feedback from students at the end of classes.
School focuses on task-based approach
