Dear LOR user,

Thank you for being a big part of this community. To better support the initiatives around open educational resources in the state of Michigan, all resources on the Michigan Virtual Learning Object Repository (LOR) are being moved to #GoOpen Michigan on September 30th, 2018. During the transition, our LOR will be moved to an archived state, not allowing new user registration or new content to be added. An email with more details was sent to registered users of the LOR in September. To make use of the great resources on the platform, we encourage you to create an account and add your own new resources to the #GoOpen Michigan platform.

Japanese Greetings


This is a unit plan for a Japanese language classes on greetings for grades 7-12. The online tools and resources listed in this unit plan is to supplement an online learning class. Because the online learning units and assessments are fixed, these supplemental tools are incorporated as optional resources for students. The purpose is twofold:

1. Students in an online learning course are sometimes expected to understand material presented in one way. By providing additional videos and website content, students can choose the tools that are the most effective in teaching the content.

2. Students in an online learning class are sometimes unable to interact with each other or the instructor. As a world language class, communication is a vital part of the learning. By incorporating web 2.0 tools that provide extra layers of communication among students/instructor, students will hopefully be motivated to learn to communicate with their classmates in Japanese as well.

Learning Targets: 
1. introduce yourself to someone and ask their name
2. ask some basic information from others in real conversations
3. recognize and recite hiragana, one of the Japanese phonetic characters
4. spell words using hiragana
5. use appropriate basic vocabulary for greeting people at different times of day
