Reading education that enriches elementary school background knowledge, <Humanities Reading Club>


Start Now

For our children who will live in the AI era

What do you need most?

science? coding?

Artificial intelligence, big data, metaverse... As an elementary school teacher who has watched the growth process of many children over the past 15 years, when there have been many changes in the economy and society as a whole Surprisingly, the correct answer is “humanities.”I think so.

As for education, “creativity” and “humanities” education are becoming more popular these days, right? This is because children's unique thinking ability and ability to think, which is different from AI, will become increasingly important in the future.

But do you know that?
Creativity, “Creative,” is said to come from the Latin word “Crescere,” which means that babies, animals, grains, etc. grow.

As you can see from the etymology of words “Creativity” is not about creating something out of nothing, but about developing it more and more using the knowledge I know. To cultivate the creativity of children who will live in future generations HumanitiesThat's why it's needed.

I can see as much as I know!

Sowing the seeds of thought

Secrets of <Humanities Reading Club>

The degree of digestion of the same book depends on the background knowledge that children have, right?

What do the knowledge I know say?

It's not the subject knowledge I memorized in fragments, It would be important to know living knowledge that is organically linked to hidden meanings..

It's fine to read any book a child likes, but that's why we need curation to select the right books according to their needs.

So from now on, we will go to Sweet Sam's < Humanities Reading Club> I will expand my humanities knowledge through fun storytelling by focusing on topics related to the subjects learned at school, such as science, society, Korean history, world history, art, and mathematics!

I'm Dang Sam, a former elementary school teacher who runs a humanities reading club and a Korean history class.

Background knowledge class with a storyteller. In this day and age, when knowledge in various fields is required, let's build up erudite knowledge.

It's a topic linked to the curriculum for each grade, so it's probably a class with 1 seat and 2 groups, which is useful for school classes, right?

A class that broadens background knowledge in various fields, builds humanities literacy, and builds a solid foundation. Class 101 will share the extract of the class that you are waiting in line for online and offline!
