Side by Side (third edition) book two is the text I will be using. I bought this from amazon.com.jp, but there is an American version on amazon.com. I wrote a syllabus and with the help of my husband, his supervisor, and one of Ted’s students posted it online. The syllabus is in English, but the website and all the directions for posting in are in Japanese. Don’t ask me how to access it online! I’ve been busy with lesson plans and activities for the semester. The week of the 4th of July I’m planning a 4th of July picnic for a class on American culture – a history lesson, food, games like the three legged race, but probably not real fireworks.
Sashiko Update – This week, I’ve been trying to put a length of thread or two in each day and it is progressing. What do you think?
