"Hands on" Japan.
Cultural learning kits designed by Evansville, Indiana teachers, supervisors, and community advisory groups were compiled to provide information about Japan to community organizations and students. This document provides a key to the contents of the kits. The kits contain teaching materials and information about food, school materials, language items, art, clothing, toys, maps, cultural items, festivals, and religion. They also provide in-class learning activities, stimulate learning and interest in Japan, and encourage cultural and language understanding. Kits are located in the school corporation media center and teachers schedule use of the individual kits that are delivered via inter-school mail. One local high school offers a semester Japanese language course, and a course in Japanese is offered in the adult evening school. (NL)
