"Ogawa primary school"
Combined classes, it means classes which consist of more two grades. In Japan, the number of combined classes is on the decrease as with decreasing of the number of primary schools. Combined classes are still beside us, however, because of decrease of people, doughnut phenomenon and so on.

The number of schools which were oclosed because of decrease of children, is not small in Wakayama. There are many combined classes. Ogawa primary school, which has been in the center of Wakayama, has some combined classes, too. They published a reference book titled ”Three Steps for Growing Reading Comprehension from Japanese Classes in Combined Classes in Wakayama.”

"Now On Sale"
The book shows some cases of teaching in combined classes. Children grow their understanding and expressiveness in free conversation and Japanese classes. And there are ways of teaching Japanese literature.

The book will be useful not only for teachers which teach in combined classes, but also for mothers-to-be or teachers-to-be. All people have to live with others and Japanese is the basis of communication in Japan. So if you were not connected with combined classes just now, the book deserves to be read.
