Encounter and Interchange: East Meets West

This collection is part of a larger unit using art to teach about the relationship between Japan and the United States over time.  The compelling question for this middle school unit is "Are Japan and the United States, friends, enemies or frenemies?"  The images here are largely collected from MIT's Visualizing Cultures with an essay by John Dower.  Many of these images are actually artifacts from various Smithsonian Collections.  

My intention with this lesson is to involve the children as detectives.   Using the "What Makes You Think That?" from Project Zero to explore the artifacts from the first diplomatic mission between Japan and the United States.  The students will explore the artifacts to find evidence of the Japanese and American perspectives of the event and to compare the two cultures.   Interspersed within these explorations  would be shorter lessons looking at the evidence in the primary source documents.  

This  collection  was created as coursework from the EDX course:  Teaching with objects #TeachingInquiry .

This collection was built as the beginning of a study of im/migration for third grade. The idea came from a teacher developed unit on the Re-imagining Migration site:  https://reimaginingmigration.o...

Since I teach 3rd grade, I needed to change parts of the unit because it was originally developed for high school students. The four main questions remained the same:

  1. How do we define home?
  2. Why do people leave their homes?
  3. What prevents people from feeling welcome in their new home?
  4. What can people do to create a welcoming community?

This collection is to explore the first question - how do we define home? Small groups of students each got a print out of one of the artworks pasted to a larger piece of paper. They then engaged with the See, Think, Wonder routine to examine another's idea of home before creating a picture of their idea of home.
