From Anime to Pokémon: Using Pop Culture to Teach About Japan.
30-hour professional development course for grade K-12 educators
Monday-Friday, August 18-22 (5 days), 9 am-4 pm
at Japan Society of New York
From pokémon to anime, many American students are fascinated by Japanese culture. This course helps teachers use materials from Japanese popular culture as an entry point to teach important lessons about Japan through sessions on Japanese cinema, anime, manga, material culture (toys, etc.) and popular literature. Each session considers how to use these materials, which naturally hold the interest of students, to teach larger lessons about Japan. Using an interdisciplinary approach, the workshop includes topics and materials relevant to the Global Studies, Arts, English and Language Arts, and elementary curricula. Lunch will be provided, and tuition includes all materials.
