『めんそーれ! 化学――おばあと 学んだ 理科授業』(Mensore! kagaku)

校に行けなかった人たちに、身近なものを使った実験を通して化学を伝えようとした全15 時間の授業記録。例えば肉じゃがを作って物質変化と化学変化の違いを学び、泡盛などを使って蒸留の実験をする。すると、60 代を超えるおばあたちは、戦争中の体験を語り始める。著者自身が生徒から「知っているつもりでじつはよく知らないこと」に気づかされると述べているように、授業を通して化学とはなにか、学ぶとはなにかについて考えさせられ興味深い。(土居)

Mensore! Chemistry

ーClasses with Local Grandmas

During the war, many children in Japan were unable to finish school, but some later studied at night school as mature students. The author taught local Okinawan women in their sixties elementary chemistry at night school, using familiar things from daily life to illustrate his lessons. In one class, for example, he explained the difference between material change and chemical change by cooking meat and potatoes. In another, he conducted a distillation experiment using wine and millet brandy. As he got to know his students, they began sharing with him what they had experienced during the war. The author learned that there was much that he thought he knew but really did not. This record of the author’s lessons and experiences stimulates readers to think about what science really is and what it means to learn. (Doi)
