Learning and Teaching Resource: Gakushuu Manga

Have you ever heard of Gakushuu Manga? Selected by the Nippon Foundation, these are manga titles that are not only entertaining, but also carry educational value, providing readers greater familiarity with a diverse range of subjects from agriculture (もやしもん), to social issues such as disabilities and bullying (聲の形), to the performing arts such as Japanese rakugo (昭和元禄落語心中).
These titles provide excellent content-based learning - students can not only learn Japanese but also explore an aspect of Japanese society or culture. Moreover, because of the diversity of the titles, students can find something that relates to them on a personal level, and through that strengthen their ties to another culture.
