  1. U.S. and Japan History/Psych Collaborative 4th Quarter Project

  2. The Progressive Era

  3. Cultural Differences • There are many different cultural differences between the US and Japan. Here are several of them: • The traffic lights in Japan are horizontal instead of vertical • In Japan, citizens do not make appointments to see the doctor/dentist but, they are made on a first come first serve basis. • In schools, the academic year begins in April, during the spring, instead of the fall in the US. • In restaurants, it is not Japanese custom to leave a tip or pay at the table.

  4. Historical Differences • By: Carey Price • Differences in Fighting

  5. Historical Differences • By: Carey Price Work Ethics • The U.S. citizens work for vacation and a luxurious life style. • The Japanese people work themselves to death for perfection. Their economy puts pressure on families to work long hours in order to keep up with payments. • Typically, the Japanese worker stays at the office for longer hours and has lower wages than the American worker. • Furthermore ,Japanese products are better made than American products. • http://www.allacademic.com/meta/p_mla_apa_research_citation/1/0/2/8/6/p102860_index.html • http://search.live.com/images/results.aspx?q=american+business+men&form=QBIR#focal=267391bae7f2c74bf9dbc10dcd677272&furl=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.haloimages.com%2Fimgs%2FMK00161_FPO_PREV.jpg • http://search.live.com/images/results.aspx?q=japanese+workers&form=QBIR#focal=158c539b72878c4404e2831582c893f3&furl=http%3A%2F%2Fnews.bbc.co.uk%2Folmedia%2F1480000%2Fimages%2F_1483839_japan_workers_bbc_300.jpg

  6. Social Conversation • Americans love to talk. We talk constantly to fill in awkward silences that can happen in a conversation. Japanese people are quite different. They believe actions speak louder than words and prefer the silence in a conversation to random babble. • Japanese people also like to “beat around the bush” and talk indirectly so that the listener can come to their own conclusion. Americans just want to get the point.
