The northern hemisphere continues to experience unusually hot
weather, and Japan is no exception.
To avoid heat stroke, it is necessary to take a break when it is
hot, but summer vacations for adults usually last from a few days to about 10.
One of the reasons I left the company before the age of 30 was to
take a vacation of two weeks each in summer, winter, and spring.
This would have been a very unusual idea at the time, 45 years
Now that I am past retirement age, I may appear to active people as
if every day were a holiday for me, but I also have decided to take August off from support work in Internet English conversation lessons and other external work, decreasing the 15 items to 4 as
the attached photo shows.
I am not in favor of assigning children a lot of summer homework
when even adults should slow down.
Especially as for children's free research, while some children may
be able to discover their themes, for the vast majority of the rest it must be almost impossible. Teachers can understand this if they look back to when they were children.
If free research a must, the whole class should think together and
make a few proposals, and individual students can try the one that suits them best respectively or in groups.
This concludes my 4 consecutive articles of medical and health
posts from Monday (31st).
