This manual provides suggestions and materials for teaching about Japan. Designed as a supplement to typical textbook treatments, the lessons provide a range of readings, visuals, and activities to enrich and deepen student learning about Japan. Organized around topics dealing with history, geography, government, economics, and culture, the lessons provide teachers with flexibility of selecting and adapting lessons for specific classroom settings. Each lesson begins with an outline for teaching that includes instructional objectives, a list of needed materials, and a sequenced list of procedures for implementing the lessons. This packet of materials contains most of the materials needed for implementation. The manual is divided into nine topics with two to four lesson plans under each topic. Topics include: (1) "Introducing Japan"; (2) "Locating Japan"; (3) "Geography of Japan"; (4) "History of Japan"; (5) "The Japanese People"; (6) "The Japanese Language"; (7) "The Arts in Japan"; (8) "Japanese Holidays and Symbols"; and (9) "Modern Japan."
