    This 20-minute video plus guidebook familiarizes pre-service and in-service teachers of Japanese with the “five C” goals of the Japanese National Standards and illustrates the concept of learning scenarios with classroom examples. The guidebook assists the viewers as well as supplements the video with additional examples and tips. The video project was funded by the US-Japan Foundation and supported by the National Working Group on Japanese Language Competency Goals, convened by the Association of the Teachers of Japanese (ATJ) and the National Council of Japanese Language Teachers (NCJLT).
