Life in Japan: A Culture Studies Unit for Grades 7-9. Today's Japan.
Learning Enrichment, Inc., Williamsburg, VA.
This unit's multidisciplinary approach is well-suited to students in grades 7 through 9. "Life in Japan" is a unit of "Today's Japan": Learning Environment's three level series on Japanese culture. This resource is designed to help teachers with this effort. The program was developed in consultation with classroom teachers by a team of editors, writers, and designers active in U.S. educational publishing. This resource unit is designed to help teenagers gain a better understanding of Japanese people in the 1990s and the unique and dynamic culture that shapes their lives. Students will read an article on "Life in Japan" and learn of schooling of students their own age. Three lessons form the basis of the unit: (1) "Where the Japanese People Live"; (2) "Education for Democracy"; and (3) "What Some Japanese Writers Say." Additional resources are listed for future reference. (EH)
