Finding Japanese contacts for Carlene

I love to pass along letters from teachers (when I can.)

Carlene in Atlanta has a request:

I am interesting in connecting with someone with knowledge of Japanese Medieval times related to the gardens, temples, etc… If that is not possible, then I would like to address the cultural aspect of Japan. My students would be asking questions about Japanese’s food, clothing, and lifestyle. If all possible, linking everything to Japanese medieval times would be preferable. If you can point me to someone, I would really appreciate it.”

If you have contacts or ideas for Carlene, either post in the comments or e-mail me at coolcatteacher [at] gmail [dot] com. Perhaps you know an expert or a classroom in Japan.

Thank you for always coming through! What an amazing network of teachers connecting and learning!

  1. I think all of your readers are interested in ‘flatclassroom’ connections. I am sure there there would be huge interest in a ‘contact agency’ for teachers – some sort of forum where teacher could make a proposal, like Carlene, and colleagues from across the globe could come forwards and suggest a collaboration

  2. Hi Carlene,
    The Japanese Government has sponsored hundreds of teachers in a program called the Japanese Fulbright Memorial Scholorship. These teachers from all over the US spend 20 days in Japan studying the country and the educational system. Each teacher has to do a follow on project for this that brings knowledge of Japan and its culture to their students. Many of these have been websites. Here are some links from the site. You might also want to apply to be a participant. The application is available from the same site and it is truly and amazing experience. I went in 2006.
