Social Studies International Research Exchange

SS.Japan #2

From February 9 – 13, 2016 the Uehiro Academy welcomed Professors Akihide Osugi, Yoshio Sumoto, Yasuhiro Hashimoto, Tomoo Nakahara, and Noboru Tanaka. This group of esteemed educators is taking the lead in rethinking the national social studies curriculum in Japan and they were interested in seeing how p4cHI and the C3 Framework might inform their decision-making. Taketo Tabata from the Miyagi University of Education accompanied them on this important research exchange. Professor Tabata is interested in supporting the development of p4c Sendai. While they were in Hawai‘i the group got to see how p4cHI is used to teach social studies at the elementary and high school level in both public and private schools. They engaged in discussion with Uehiro Academy faculty and students such as the Kailua High School Philosurfers. They also had the opportunity to meet with HIDOE State Social Studies Specialist Rosanna Fukuda to learn how the C3 Framework is now being used to upgrade state social studies standards in the United States. The Uehiro Academy is looking forward to further developing the relationships that were strengthened on this visit and to collaborating on the evolution of social studies education both in Japan and the United States.
