  • Modern Japanese Literature

    Posted by Sarah Campbell on 8/17/2015 12:00:00 PM

    As part of Sarah Campbell's ongoing professional developement in East Asian Studies, in 2014 and 2015 she worked as part of the University of Colorado's Teaching East Asian program to create a new collection of teacher-developed lessons—Becoming Modern: Early 20th-Century Japan through Primary Sources. The collection, available here, offers secondary teachers seven lessons that examine a critical period in Japanese and world history: the period of Japan’s modernization and international expansion from the 1880s through the 1920s. The lessons draw upon a range of historical source materials—including art, literature, memoir, interviews, board games, and government documents—to teach Japanese history using pedagogical approaches that address national content standards and Common Core skills. This curriculum is a project of the National Consortium for Teaching about Asia (NCTA) at the Program for Teaching East Asia (TEA), University of Colorado.
