Teaching about Japan in the Precollegiate Classroom July 7-12, 2002.

This week-long seminar is designed to provide secondary school teachers
with a background knowledge of Japan to enhance their teaching. While the
focus is primarily on modern Japan, traditional values and ideas of
Japan's past still color Japanese behavior and will be included.

Japan specialists from around the United States will lead
lecture/discussions on Japanese society, culture, economics, and politics.
Some of the topics expected to be covered are popular beliefs, family and
gender, literature, music, and the changing economic and political
landscape. Because we will cover a wide range of topics in a short time,
readings will be sent to participants prior to the workshop.

 Videos and films that complement and illustrate issues and topics
discussed during presentations will be shown in the evenings. There will
also be time to view other videos that could be used in the secondary
school classroom .

Several sessions will be devoted to curriculum. Published curriculum
materials will be introduced and help will be provided so that
participants can develop or expand their own personal curricular
materials.

 Eligibility: Full-time teachers of history, geography, world cultures,
world literature, and economics who currently teach or expect to teach
about Japan during the coming academic year will be given preference.
Applications will be reviewed and a maximum of 20 participants will be
selected.

 Credit: This course may be taken for 1/2 unit of University of  Illinois
graduate credit. Participants will be responsible for their own tuition.
State of Illinois teachers may elect to receive 30 CPDUs.

Cost: The full cost of the workshop (workshop fee, room and board and

  materials) is underwritten by a grant from the Freeman Foundation.
Participants will be required to pay a nonrefundable registration fee of
$100 once they have been accepted into the workshop. Participants will  be
responsible for the cost of University of Illinois tuition if they choose
to register for graduate credit.

Housing: Participants will be provided housing in a private dormitory on
the University of Illinois campus. Meals (Sunday dinner through
Fridaylunch) will also be provided.
