Should Japan continue its policy of isolationism?


The Shogun is requesting representation from the following groups:


  • Ainus
  • Daimyos
  • Samurais
  • Merchants
  • Christian missionaries or converts
  • Farmers
  • Artisans or craftsman
  • English or Dutch traders
  • Theatre actors
  • Geishas
  • Buddhist monks 



To Complete This Critical Challenge:

2. Formulate your persuasive argument


3. Record your argument as a Podcast in Garage Band


4. Post your podcast by clicking on the appropriate link in the Side Bar



The Shogun thanks you for your ideas!
