    A daily / weekly agenda will be posted for the students to clearly communicate the directives for the day or week. Detailed instructions, pdf attachments, video clips and other necessary resources will be included at all times.  Each student is responsible for the content communicated by me to Edmodo/Google Classrooms. As stated before, parents will be given a "Parent Class Code" for Edmodo to monitor assignments and posts on a periodic basis or when deemed necessary. Parents will have access to their child's class and assignments from the beginning of each school year. Parents will also have a direct mode of communication through Edmodo, Google Classroom or by email to me at all times.

Course Syllabus and Important Resources

  • Advanced Placement Japanese (CSU/UC Approved course)

    It is strongly recommended that each student attempt taking the AP exam towards the end of the school year. By passing the AP exam with a 3 or better, students will have the potential to earn college credit and eliminating the Foreign Language requirement at the College/University level. 

    By passing the AP exam, students will also be eligible to receive the Seal of Biliteracy from the State of California as well.

  • Japanese 3 Honors (CSU/UC Approved Course)

    This is a Cal State University System/University of California approved course. This is considered an Honors course and will have a different weight on your high school requirements and reflect positively on your transcript.

  • Japanese 1 and 2 Course Syllabus

    In Japanese 1 and 2, students will be utilzing two textbooks:

    Adventures in Japanese 1 and Genki 1.  The reason for this is that we will be adopting Genki 1 in the near future.  Adventures in Japanese is a high school textbook, where Genki 1 is a textbook utilized by the majority of Community Colleges and Universities for 1st /2nd year students.
