Materials for a secondary level, interdisciplinary social studies course on Japan are divided into introductory information, 14 classroom units, and study and evaluation materials. Introductory material includes lists of objectives and skills, an outline of Japanese history, and an explanation of Japan's name and flag. The units cover the derivation of the Japanese people and language, geography, religion, government, foreign relations, economy, science and technology, environment, transportation and communication, education, family life, Japanese arts, police and criminal justice system, and social customs and rituals. For each unit, resources, objectives, methods, lessons, and a number of student activities are provided. Worksheets are included where necessary. Samples of activities are: practicing Japanese calligraphy, completing maps, writing a research paper, interpreting charts and graphs, visiting a museum of Japanese art, and creating a Japanese garden. A pretest, three tests covering the 14 units, a posttest, a vocabulary guide, and a bibliography conclude the curriculum guide. (LP)
