Designing Oregon's Certification Program for Japanese: The University, School Districts, and Community Working Together.
Tamura, Linda; And Others
A description is given of Oregon's first and only program to prepare Japanese language teachers for state certification. The program was designed through collaboration by three integral groups: departments within the University, neighboring school districts, and members of the Japanese and business community. The new program, designed to meet the growing demand for Japanese language teachers, inspired the development of model curricula, teaching resources, and innovative events for teachers and students, including a cultural and language immersion day for high school students, a videotape featuring high school teachers using a variety of instructional methods, summer workshops for teachers, a pilot elementary Japanese program, and a developing materials center.
