Do you teach Japanese literature, culture, and society in your classroom?
The United States-Japan Foundation supports projects that aim to build mutual knowledge, understanding, and communication between students in the Japan and the United States in its Pre-College Education Program. From Philanthropy News Digest:
Through its Pre-College Education Program, US-JF supports programs that take advantage of new technology to bring Japanese and American teachers and students together; build human networks among teachers on both sides of the Pacific with a mutual interest in teaching and learning about Japan, the U.S., and U.S.-Japan relations, particularly in the fields of social studies and Japanese-language instruction; and invest in programs in regions in both countries that have been underserved in terms of exposure to and resources for learning about the other country.
