Japan's Taisho Period was a time when authors like Akutagawa and other Japanese modernists began to experiment with point of view and literary form, making the literature produced during this time period a natural choice for teaching these concepts in your ELA classroom. A simple lesson plan that consists of lecture, discussion, and independent work, it is designed to introduce pupils to the modernists' style of literature. Pupils can articulate their new understanding of these concepts through writing and discussion activities.
