Achieve! History - The Ancient to the Modern World: Japan 1 has been written to support Years 7–10 secondary school students, specifically those with low-level literacy skills.
Japan Under the Shoguns 1 looks at the main events and people that shaped shogunate Japan. These include fighting between different noble clans and warring states and the life of Tokugawa Leyasu. The work sheets also examine different religions, the Meiji restoration, lifestyles of different groups in Japan and cultural activities.
Historical and literacy skills are developed through categorising material, using empathy to connect to historical characters and events, comparing and contrasting different perspectives and exploring primary and secondary sources.
This title includes a CD-ROM containing all pages in the book and selected illustrations that can be easily edited to suit the needs of individual students. This title supports Australian Curriculum outcomes.
