In the Course of Study Guidelines (2017) for Japan, “proactive, interactive, and deep learning” (= active learning) and “curriculum management” are proposed as major objectives. These attributes are identified as ways of improving classes, school organization and management in schools. Curriculum management is expected to promote active learning. Although previous studies have shown a correlation between these two attributes, they have not clarified the mechanisms underlying this relationship. In this study, we outline the results of a quantitative survey of many elementary school teachers about the relationships between active learning and curriculum management.
