Japanese Culture and History Class
Posted Aug 10 2007
Various images from a couple of classes that I taught at Oakland Unity High School, CA. Besides typical lectures, students did presentations, tried food, watched DVD clips and studied atypical topics including Brazilians immigrants, the Chicano gang influence, and Harajuko street fashion. A thank you to Dawn-Elissa Fischer for the yukatas.
The following are links to interviews we read in this class.
