Japanese History Writing Task Cards includes 182 different writing prompts that spans all of Japanese history through the first half of the Showa period. You will never have to figure out writing prompts for your Japanese units or lessons.

These task cards include low-level writing prompts (identify, define, rank), mid-level writing prompts (create, arrange) and high-level writing prompts where students have to analyze information or explain events. They are also asked to persuade their reader or to form an opinion.

Continuity and change essays are also included at the end of the product.

The cards can be used one by one, you can pair them, or you can bundle several together and create a scaffolded writing assignment that has students identifying, defining, outlining, and analyzing.

The Japanese History Writing Task Cards are perfect for all levels of world history, Asian history, or Japanese history classes.

What's Included:

  • 182 writing task cards
