Haiku Contest: I had 9 students from Japanese IIB and 8 students from Japanese IIAB entering Haiku Contest. I was amazed at the poetical and artistic talent displayed among our students. I have winners' Haiku posted below and other entries can be view at https://www.smore.com/t90rw. Haiku can be an addictive life long shumi, or hobby. Keep on Haiku-ing.
Project: Write a Nikki(diary) entry in Japanese
Here is the instruction.

The sentences should be written mostly (70%) in Japanese writings (hiragana, katakana, and/or kanji). Your entry can be fictitious, so be creative in your writing. Please submit it in the dropbox "Remediation Project." Please see a sample letter and tutorial in the Course Home.
