We will be going on a fieldtrip to the Edo Museum on Tues April 9th . Please have your parents sign the permission slip and state whether you will meet at Ishikawacho or Ryogoku.
Your homework for the weekend is to go through the Virtual tour of Edo.
Here is a link to some basic details about Edo
Visualising cultures – wood block prints or Ukiyo-e.
We will look at some of these and discuss how useful they are, also look at a framework for analyzing visual texts, “The Five C’s,” . Using the checklist on there you will start to analyse your image. You will also go through and focus on evaluation using OPPVL .
You need to be able to fully analyse and evaluate as you will be doing this after we come back from the Edo museum when you present an analysis of the 1 thing you took a picture of.
You will then do a summative, in class essay, which is based on sources.
