Trip to Japan Enriches Teacher's Curriculum

A regional US news site reported yesterday on a local primary school teacher who spent three weeks in Japan last month as a guest of the Japan Fulbright Memorial Teacher Fund. Sarah Shivler wowed her first-grade students with stories of Mt. Fuji and Japanese classrooms. She brought many souvenirs back to her Springfield, Missouri school, including a "koi-nobori" carp streamer that stretched almost the entire length of the classroom. She found that Japanese schools were not as high-tech as she might have imagined: "Their schools are not high-tech at all," she said. "They have computer labs, but it's not like they have computers in every classroom."
