My students had an absolute blast with this project! Students will work in groups of three to present a talk show. Their talk show will include the host who will ask the deep and engaging questions and two guests who will answer in an interesting and detailed way. Students will choose three out of the following four people to include in their talk show: a Shogun, a Daimyo, a Samurai or a Peasant. (Traditional Japanese names are included.)
