Dear List Members,

Japan Society has a new site for k-12 Educators:

Journey Through Japan
This site is a source of knowledge and materials,
including background readings for teachers and
students, lesson plans, maps, an interactive timeline
and an extensive photo gallery.
I have added the link to:

There is an excellent lesson plan for high school
ceramics that I added to this page:

There is another lesson plan on the site for
interpreting Buddha images - mandala and hand

9. Japan Society [pdf]

The Japan Society was founded in New York City in 1907
by a group of businesspeople who were intimately
interested in promoting relations between the United
States and Japan. While the Society experienced a
downturn in activities during World War II, the
postwar period saw the Society come under the
direction of John D. Rockefeller III, who was able to
vastly expand its programs. Currently, the Society
offers a number of programs, including programs for
K-12 educators, a language center, a global affairs
lecture and seminar series, and exhibitions in its
gallery. One particularly nice resource is the
mini-site, "Journey Through Japan", which may be found
in the education section. This part of the site is
designed specifically for educators, and includes
background readings, lesson plans, maps, an
interactive timeline and a photo gallery.
Additionally, visitors can sign up to receive a number
of specialized electronic newsletters sent out by the
Society. [KMG]
