Spotlight on Japan: Continuity and Change.
Greenberg, Hazel Sara; Arkin, Linda, Ed.; Mahony, Elizabeth, Ed.
This curriculum guide is the outgrowth of a program developed by The American Forum for Global Education to help New York City teachers improve the teaching of Japan in their classrooms. The resource guide provides an interdisciplinary perspective on Japanese culture for secondary teachers and students. In addition to suggested classroom activities, there are background readings and notes for the teachers that can be used for enrichment lessons with students. The five chapters focus on: (1) "Literature and Language"; (2) "Education"; (3) "Culture"; (4) "Geography"; and (5) "Social Roles." A section of teaching resources offers a map of Japan, a description of the accompanying slides, a bibliography, and a 15-item videography. (EH)
