Using a cross disciplinary approach, the course will address such topics as the development of literature, art, and high culture, the development of political systems, and the political and cultural influence of the Asian mainland on Japan. Emphasis will be on understanding the content and creating practical teaching ideas to integrate the material into the 6-12 ELA, Social Studies, and Art Classroom.
