Creating visuals for topics in history truly help the content come alive! Your students will work in small groups of three to create a visual that portrays the status, roles and responsibilities of the four social groups that made up feudalism in medieval Japan. Each group member will choose a role (professor, graphic designer or scribe). While there is a lot of room for creativity, the visual that students create must be based on evidence.
Included in the Product
✓ A brief introduction
✓ Step-by-step directions and requirements
✓ A list and explanation of the roles and responsibilities of your students
✓ A detailed rubric
✓ A student reflection
