    Assignment: Group Presentations, Final Proposal, and Class Discussion; essay

    In 2019, many universities across Japan extended classroom lesson times by 10 minutes (from 90-minute lessons to 100-minute lessons). Do you agree or disagree with this change? How would you structure a daily lesson? In other words, if you were a university professor, what would an average daily 100-minute lesson include? After everyone has presented their ideas, decide as a group which one is the best. Then, talk to your instructor about the proposal. Would she/he be willing to make the changes? Why or why not? Finally, discuss what changes you believe need to be made in current education systems.
