Worldview Investigation
  • Get into your Worldview Investigation groups and
    obtain your task

Foreign Influences
  • Read the chapter title page 166
  • What does the term influence mean? Why was Japan

Cause and effect chart
  • Using pages 166-167 as an example, create a
    cause-and-effect chart together as a class.
  • Cause the action of Russia
  • Effect Japans response to that action
  • Read the next three influences (Europe, China,
    and USA) on your own, and create a
    cause-and-effect chart. (pages 168-172)
