Grade 8 Individuals and Societies Class
In Grade 8 Individuals and Societies Class, we have started a new unit this semester focusing on the Edo Period in Japan. We are studying about the samurai class and the famous play 47 Ronin. Today was the first lesson and students have been reading about the topic in English, discussing and answering questions. We practised critical thinking and research skills. In the video clip, the students had to explain why there was no need for a large supply of samurai warriors after Japan was unified and became a peaceful society. Students had to use logic and evidence to answer the questions and find the mistakes in the worksheet.
