Makiko's New World: Activities for the High School Classroom. [Videotape with] Teacher's Guide.
Stanford Univ., CA. Stanford Program on International and Cross Cultural Education.; Illinois Univ., Champaign. Asian Educational Media Service.
The film "Makiko's New World" offers U.S. high school students a unique glimpse into the latter part of the Meiji Period (1868-1912) in Japanese history. Students have the opportunity to experience the life of one Japanese woman, Makiko, during the Meiji Period through the "lens" of her diary. The teacher's guide was developed to provide suggested activities prior to having students view the film, suggested viewing tasks, and suggested post-viewing activities. The guide contains an introduction and indicates connections to National Standards for History, objectives, and materials needed. It contains two handouts and four activity sheets, including exercises with a theater script, haiku, advertisements, and calligraphy. The guide suggests assessment procedures and follow-up activities. (BT)
