Defining “Class Deterioration.” (When Class Stops Functioning)
“Class deterioration” is defined as a situation where children refuse to follow their teacher’s instructions, and as a result, the class cannot move forward. The teacher’s normal problem solving methods are ineffectual and the class remains in a state where learning is impossible.

Handover Procedures Report

In the JET Programme, most JETs are fortunate enough to have predecessors who can pass on valuable information about both living and working in Japan. Yet, currently, there is no standardised system of passing down essential information. This report will explore what, if any, handover procedures are undertaken by JETs’ predecessors, as well as what information is included. Additionally, this report will look into systems of “hikitsugisho,” or documents that are produced in many Japanese offices by predecessors for their successors, that prefectures throughout the country use to communicate with incoming JETs. Finally, this report will evaluate what particular information should be provided to JETs during the handover process.
