Included in this zip file are two keynote presentations (also in power point format as well) about the modernization of Japan.
Starting with Japan in isolation the presentation explains how Japan opened its doors to the world and then partook in rapid modernization and industrialization. Japan became a powerful nation in East Asia.
Each presentation as two pdf pages of blank two column notes that students can use to take notes during the presentation.
Also included in the file is a document with scans of original Japanese drawings from their first interaction with the United States as well as the text of the letter that the President sent to Japan.
Finally I have also included a Quiz for the two presentations. It is in word format so that you can make changes if you should so choose.
