This professional development course explores contemporary Japan through asynchronous online video lectures, readings and in-person sessions. Educators are invited to delve into how Japan can be understood within a global context and how “Japan-specific” content can be used to raise awareness of social issues faced by American students. Topics include: Japanese geopolitics; the U.S.-Japan Security alliance with a focus on Okinawa; and the global supply chain and energy interdependence. With the guidance of lead instructors, participants will become equipped to teach about Japan and will create a lesson plan related to the course content utilizing rich primary sources provided. Ten (10) hours of CTLE credit are available for NYC in-service teachers.
