Learning and Teaching about Japan in Indiana Schools. Program and Resource Guide.
Bliven, Arlene R., Comp.
The Learning and Teaching about Japan Project was begun in Indiana in 1987. Since that time, it has involved 16 school corporations in an ongoing program to internationalize the K-12 curriculum and implement Japanese language programs in the schools. This guide has been developed as a record of the activities conducted by the 16 participating school corporations, and is designed to provide a comprehensive guide that any school corporation can use to plan changes of its own to incorporate a global perspective across subject areas. The guide is organized into nine sections. Section I, an introduction, includes a description of the project and an outline of its three goals, in the areas, respectively of teaching, curriculum, and outreach. Section II provides profiles of the 16 school corporations that have participated in the project to date. Section III contains descriptions of the curriculum projects the school corporations have produced. Section IV features information about requirements that Indiana teachers must meet in order to teach the Japanese language. Section V includes information about Japanese and Chinese Intensive Language Workshops that are offered at Ball State University, Muncie, Indiana. Section VI lists the Indiana high schools that offer Japanese and Chinese language programs. Section VII contains materials about program development to assist schools in integrating international education into the curriculum. Section VIII includes information about materials, resources, and sources of information for use in the classroom. Finally, Section IX contains information on cultural exchange programs and documents to assist with the exchange of students and educators. (DB)
