Japanese Life Through the Eyes of Children
In collaboration with the Boston Children's Museum
Course Date: Nov. 16, 2013
Time: 9:00 a.m. – 3:30 p.m.
Location: Boston Children's Museum
From Hello Kitty to the Red Sox, children in the U.S. are exposed to many things Japanese. What role should elementary school teachers play in explaining Japanese culture to students? Like their U.S. counterparts, Japanese children attend school, play games, interact with pop culture and live in a variety of types of homes. How are their experiences similar and different? This workshop will look at how Japanese children experience the real and imagined world and explore ways for teachers to engage U.S. students in learning about Japanese culture.
Especially for educators of grades K-7.
The registration deadline is Wednesday, September 25, 2013.
