Contemporary Japan: A Teaching Workbook. Third Edition Revised.
Martin, Roberta, Ed.; And Others
Designed to supplement and enliven standard textbook presentations of Japan, this workbook, through student exercises, seeks to answer some of the most common questions U.S. students have about Japan and its people. Classes exploring only one aspect of Japan as well as those seeking an integrated picture of Japan's traditional culture and contemporary society are encouraged to use the workbook. The exercises in the introductory section are suggested as approaches to beginning class discussion. Teachers can then proceed to any of the topical sections that follow: geography, language, religion, traditional history, modern history, society, government and politics, economy and trade, defense and foreign policy, literature, drama, culture, and arts. Each section has an introduction noting how the exercises within that section relate to one another or to points developed in other sections of the workbook. Materials on the Japanese American experience also are included. (DB)
