CHY 4U: Of Guns, Shoguns, and Road Rage

Today, we will examine the decline of the Edo Period through a crazy diagram I co-created with some teachers at the Ministry. We think it is awesome, especially because it bears a striking resemblance to the Deathly Hallows. Your opinion, sadly, is irrelevant; sorry.

We will have 6 groups. Each group is responsible for defining, examining, and analyzing one of the following:

  • technological stagnation
  • banning/execution of foreigners
  • Commodore Matthew Perry
  • Shi-Shi
  • The Namamugi Incident
  • Yoshida Shoin of Yamaguchi

P.S. I was joking about the irrelevant thing.
