Class Experience

Improve in basic Japanese grammar, vocabulary, and reading ability by working through Japanese foltales.  Students will also learn about the folktales themselves and Japanese culture.
Students will be expected to review vocabulary and folktales between classes.  This expectation will probably require students to spend between 1-2 hours a week outside of class.
1 hour 50 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 1 - 2 hours per week outside of class.
We will refer to the following short Japanese Folktales:
猿と蟹・Monkey and the Crab
おむすびころりん・Omusubi Kororin
わらしべ長者・Straw Millionaire
はなさかじいさん・The Old Man Who Makes Flowers Bloom
かぐや姫・Princess Kaguya
PDF's of each will be shared via the Outschool Classroom.  Each story can be found in the public domain or is being used under fair use which allows educators to share short stories of less than 2500 words for educational purposes.
