The lesson gives an overview of the culture and pursuits of the samurai class in Japan. It incorporates poetry, simple Japanese terminology, and information about the literature and war of the samurai. The format is fill-in-the-blank guided notes with several discussion questions and pictures. No textbook necessary. The lesson requires an overhead.
(An accompanying powerpoint presentation could also be downloaded. The powerpoint includes the objective, pictures, and color-coded notes that follow the student handouts. Using the powerpoint would require a projector instead of an overhead.)
