In other countries, education is a bit different than us in the United States. We are studying Japan for our language arts project. Throughout this paper, we will be giving facts about certain topics like, technology use, after school activities, and are all students required to attend school every day of the week.

Body Paragraphs


In Japan, they use about the same technolgy as us. Maybe even less. They have smart boards which is a main technology use in the classroom but they also have some others. Most teachers use more physical and in class activities such as simulations. Due to this, Japanese children and teenagers grow up with less technology than most kids and teens in other countries such as our own country!

Also In Japan, there are many different after school activities. Students can do swimming, baseball, origami, table tennis, kendo which is fencing with two handed bamboo swords and shogi which is a kind of chess like games and many other activities. The many other activities include computer clubs, karate, dance, and studies in musical instruments or foreign languages.

Lastly, every student is required to go to school. No one is allowed to skip as many kids would like to do. Japan has many laws such as us that enforce the idea every student has to go to school and that every child has to learn the basic learning skills that every student should have. Throughout a kids schooling career, they learn math, language arts, science, social studies and Japanese. Also, they have music type classes and many other extra curricular.


Overall, Japanese education is pretty close to our educational system. Obviously they have there own tid bits of ideas but we are pretty similar. Throughout our body paragraphs we talked about three main topics and which all of them are pretty similar to U.S education!

Japan education versus American education?

Education in Japan is a lot like Americas education. Through technology and teachers, we both have the same thoughts and regulations as them. There government wants everyone to get an education so that everyone has a chance and a possibility of succeeding in there older years of life.
