After two years teaching in Japan, Mike Jaffe returned to Los Angeles, and is the current Academic Assistant with The Japan Foundation, Los Angeles, helping to promote Japanese language education in the US. In association with other teachers around the US who are advocates of Japanese language education, he assembled, partially wrote and edited an advocacy kit. He also produced the 17 minute video that accompanies the kit. The Japan Foundation Advocacy Kit was created for the purpose of assisting the proliferation of Japanese language programs, particularly at the K-12 level.
The Japan Foundation, Los Angeles recently distributed a new Advocacy
For K-12 Japanese Language programs. This kit can be a vital tool for
starting, strengthening and/or preserving a Japanese language program.
Since its release, new ways have emerged to use the kit. This is your
chance to communicate with the editor of the kit, ask any questions you
have, and discuss different possible usages. Although the focus of
this kit is to promote Japanese programs, other disciplines especially
foreign/ESL language programs may be able to get some ideas.
