PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Even though Minamoto Yoritomo (first shogun of the Samurai Era) and Fujiwara Michinaga (leader of the Japanese Golden Age, also known as the Heian period) never met in real life, due to advances in time travel technology, both men will appear in your Social Studies classroom this week. They are going to have an argument and disagree about the time period in Japanese history that should be considered the best to live in – the Golden Age or the Samurai Era. They will argue in a respectful, yet firm and confident manner.

Your students will work in pairs for this activity. One partner will write from the perspective of Minamoto Yoritomo and the other from the point-of-view of Fujiwara Michinaga. The speech will be in the form of a dialogue.
