These learning activities are designed to increase students' understanding of Japanese life while exploring similar aspects of their own.

Hanabi: Sources from Japan for the secondary English classroom introduces students to:

  • traditional forms of Japanese writing (haiku and tanka)
  • forms of language (tatemae and honne)
  • popular narrative comics (manga).

The learning sources in Hanabi are all texts from or about modern Japan and are intended to enable students to 'explore meaning'. Some of the texts are by Japanese authors and others by non-Japanese who have lived and worked in Japan and have a considerable understanding of the country.

A variety of types of text are included and full-colour photographs of modern Japan, including a McDonald's window display, have particular appeal for adolescents.
