Looking inward or outward in edo Japan

In this two-part critical challenge, students work in groups to prepare a petition to the shogun on the policy of isolationism from the perspective of an assigned group in Japanese society. Students then determine the three most important reasons for retaining, and the three most important reasons for abandoning, the policy of isolationism.
