Educators are invited to delve into how contemporary 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 with a focus on changing U.S.-China and U.S.-Russia relationships; Japan’s role in the global supply chain; and the impact of energy policy on Japanese security. With the guidance of lead instructors, participants will become equipped to teach about Japan with ideas for lesson plans utilizing the rich primary sources provided.

This program is offered in collaboration with Japan America Society of Houston. Four (4) hours of credit are available for TX in-service teachers. Teachers from all states are welcome to participate.

Join us as we analyze the impact of changing foreign relations on Japan and the Asia Pacific and discuss how the U.S.-Japan supply chain is critical to national security and economic competitiveness.

Please note this courses will be conducted online via Zoom. To participate fully, you will need access to a device with internet, microphone, and camera (such as a laptop, smartphone, or tablet).
