One of the best ways to learn about historical figures is by reading biographies. Your students are going to design the book jacket of Minamoto Yoritomo's biography. Minamoto Yoritomo was the first shogun and started a new era in Japanese history. A book jacket includes the front cover, spine and back cover of the book. This is a project that gives your students the opportunity to be creative, but their writing must be based on historical evidence.
