Japanese Feudalism vs. Western European Feudalism


  1. We’ll brainstorm questions we have about feudalism in Japan, including samurais. Then we’ll try to find answers to those questions plus a few others from Mrs. Barroso through independent research. (See the backside of this page!) For our research, we’ll use About.com’s pages about Japanese feudalism. The web address is: http://asianhistory.about.com/od/japan/a/Feudalism-In-Japan-And-Europe.htm

Due Date for Research: Friday, December 18

  1. You’ll create a detailed, neat, colorful Venn diagram or chart that shows the similarities and differences between Japanese feudalism and European feudalism.

Due Date for Venn diagram or Chart: Friday, December 18

  1. After you’ve done research and created a Venn diagram or comparison chart, we will have a Socratic Seminar. The seminar will be based on your research information and be centered on these questions: How were European and Japanese feudalism similar and different? What is your theory for WHY they were different? In other words, what caused these differences?

Date of Socratic Seminar: TBA (after Winter Break)

  1. Create an outline for an essay that answers this prompt: Explain how feudalism in Japan was different from feudalism in Western Europe, paying attention to how and why they were different.
