Twelfth graders examine Korean history and culture. In this Asian history lesson, 12th graders discuss the effects of the Japanese occupation of Korea. They research literature from the time period and compose written responses based on the experience of having their whole cultural identities stripped away suddenly, as in the case of the Koreans. They create another essay response based on the events of the period.
Students, after given the opportunity to us the software Eyewitness-History of the World, research a given topic, abstract the main ideas, and ultimately present the findings to the class. Inevitably, the students design three quiz questions to be used on a quiz at the end of the presentations.
Quiz your historians in the fascinating history and culture behind modern-day Japan using this trivia flashcard handout. Ten cards each contain a simply-written question and answer, covering topics such as Confucianism, bushido, Japan's feudal period, Dutch trade, and haiku poetry. Many cards require them to recall terms in Japanese, and could be used in a Japanese language class. Note that the question and answer are both written on the same side of the page- not ideal for flashcard use.
