For our Year 8 HSIE course in 2015 we are programming the unit on the Tokugawa Shogunate. Just wondering if anybody might have any resources or ideas they are willing to share on this topic as it is something that we have not taught before. Any help would be much appreciated.

This Sunday November 2, the State Library NSW and the Festival are proud to open the November season of classic silent films accompanied by acclaimed Australian musicians.
The opening classic in the Metcalfe Auditorium at 2pm is the digital restoration of the classic Japanese silent film, Passing Fancy, directed by the cinema master, Yasujiro Ozu.
The film has been described as “….a humorous and heartfelt study of a close, if fraught, father-son relationship. With an ever more sophisticated visual style and understanding of fragile human relationships, Ozu seamlessly weaves rib-tickling comedy and weighty family drama for this distinguished precursor to a brilliant career.”
This film shall have live keyboard accompaniment by Australia’s outstanding silent film musician, Mauro Colombis. Tickets are $25 / $20 concession and Friend of the Library.

Our Japanese sister school is hoping to send a couple of their students to our school for a long term exchange (6-12 months) next year, and we’ve never done this before. I was wondering whether anyone can offer us any advice on how we’d go about organising this. We’re interested to know about visa requirements, legal requirements, how other schools have organised things like uniform, homestays, fees etc. Any ideas would be greatly appreciated!
Thanks in advance and kind regards,
We have 5 guests from Osaka Tourist Bureau coming from Japan next week.
Their visiting purpose is PROMOTING SCHOOLS VISITING JAPAN, especially local school groups in Australia.
Please see attached information.
I do know this is the last minute request and quite hard to arrange...but
I was just wondering if any local schools (Sydney Area) are interested in visiting Japan in the future and could accept a school visit from the delegation on any of the dates below.
OP 1 : at 9am Tuesday 28/Oct/2014
OP 2 : at 3.30pm Tuesday 28/Oct/2014
OP 3 : at 11am Wednesday 29/Oct/2014

I am wondering if teachers in NSW are interested in reading the following stories, and perhaps one day creating an eBook and publishing it.
The teachers on the website above are not Japanese teachers but as a Japanese teacher I was very inspired with their work. Jane Ross had her students going into a village in Indonesia and recording what children in the village said, and translating it into English.
I don't have any affiliation with the company. There are both iPad and Android apps available for free. If you think some students and teachers might get benefit, please advertise the website. http://bit.ly/1oaaBIi
I thought creating a book using Japanese might be really good real life activity.
Thank you for consideration!
