This book is designed to accompany a videotape comprised of numerous television and video clips, many from actual Japanese broadcasts, to help teach about Japan. The video and book are divided into three thematic segments. Included in each part of the guide are a background essay on the featured theme, an annotated script that includes additional information about the material in each segment, related classroom activities and handouts, and suggestions about other relevant sources. The background essays include: (1) "Approaching Other Cultures through Television" (Jackson H. Bailey); (2) "Teaching the Geographic Character of Japan" (James M. Goodman); (3) "Holidays and Festivals in Japan" (Theodore Bestor); and (4) "Continuity and Change in Japanese Culture" (Barbara Finkelstein). A bibliography and list of resource centers conclude the book. (EH)
