2013 Tokyo Program

2013 Tokyo Program

Tuesday, July 9: Day 1

My dearest readers,

Wow, what a day! We were gone from 7:45 in the morning and did not return until after 11p.m. We began by taking the train to the Tokorozawa campus of Waseda University. This is where we had the pleasure of meeting our Japanese counterparts. Our first tasks were video analysis and lesson study. As a collective whole we shared our observations and reflections that we made about the video. After a traditional Bento Box lunch it was back to work. Next, we learned and practiced the KJ Method before ending the session with a presentation by Principal Takahashi.

Even though it had already been a long day that did not stop us from having a drinking party. Everyone had fun. All in all it was a great first day!


P.S.: The greatest discovery of the day was learning the toilets in Japan have sound effects.
