This teaching guide focuses on four forms of arts and crafts popular in China, Korea, and Japan, and explores the effects, if any, on American culture. It is part of the Louisville Area Ethnic Heritage Studies Project described in ED 150 043. The objective of this unit is to help students understand and appreciate East Asian calligraphy, haiku, ikebana, and shadow theater. Suggested time period is one or two weeks. The guide includes a pretest, four behavioral objectives accompanied by instructional strategies and facilitating materials, and three worksheets illustrating haiku, ikebana, and calligraphy. A posttest asking for definitions of the crafts, examples of use in Louisville, and student feelings about East Asian art is included, plus a bibliography of resources and materials. (Author/CK)
