|| Development of an interdisciplinary study plan on the seasonal transition from autumn to winter around the Japan Islands (Through the lesson study at junior high school with attention to the shallow convective rainfall “Shi-gu-re” in the cold air outbreak situations in early winter)
|| An interdisciplinary study plan on the seasonal transition from autumn to winter around the Japan Islands and the “seasonal feeling” associated with the shallow convective rainfall “Shi-gu-re” in that stage expressed in the Japanese classic poems called “Wa-ka” was developed, through a lesson study at junior high school. In that study plan, special attention was paid to the seasonal evolution of the larger-scale systems from autumn to winter, such as the Siberian air mass and the Siberian high, and the relation to the cold air intrusion into the Japan Sea and the Japan Islands. According to the analysis of the lesson practice results, students seem to understand that the winter-type weather pattern becomes dominant around November, together with the features of the intermittent rainfall in the winter-type pressure pattern called “Shi-gu-re” expressed in the “Wa-ka”. However, necessity of further improvement of the study plan was pointed out, so that the students can understand more exactly the role of the seasonal development of the Siberian high and Siberian air mass in the climate around the Japan Islands.
