Samurai Study

Create a presentation explaining the Samurai Code to Westerners, who may not be familiar with the concept. Be sure to include relevant historical information.


Create a visual representation of the city of Nanking, drawing on the map given in the book and other sources. Remember that it needs to be 3D!


Turn the first few chapters of the book into a play. Include all important events, but don't trivialize any important information!

Songs of war

Find a classical piece of music--or write your own--that tells the story of the Rape of Nanking. Play or perform the piece for the class, and be sure to explain why this piece perfectly captures the tragedy in Nanking.


Create a war poster of propaganda like the ones the Japanese posted in Nanking to lure the Chinese to trust them. Be creative and clever!
