Share this PowerPoint with your students and allow them to modernize the Japanese exclusion (or isolation) laws from Edo Japan.
Upon doing a little research on the exclusion laws, students create a meme for 5 of the laws. They simply select one of the meme characters from the provided PowerPoint, copy and paste that character to another slide, and then create the narrative for that character.
The meme character's narrative should reflect an exclusion law, as well as the perspective of that particular character.
For example, if the student chooses Grumpy Cat as their "spokesperson", then the created meme should reflect his attitude.
