A Tentative English Translation of the Parts of Civics in the Courses of Study for Junior and Senior High School (2008 and 2009) in Japan : From the Standpoint of End-User

I, who had taught the outline of Japanese civic education to foreign graduate students during 2006-2013, translated into English all parts of Civics in the new Courses of Study for secondary schools. It is partly because there is no English translation only on the fields of Social Studies in the website of the MEXT, and partly because a foreign student may have any interest in our Civics that would be supposed to have succeeded in tailoring the most moderate citizen in civilized countries.

These Courses of Study showed mere minimum concepts and, if you would ask me in more details, I will readily answer to the question by reference of the formal practical guides.
