Analyze the documents on the following slides to understand how that change was perceived at the time it occurred. Question: How was this turning point and change perceived at the time it occurred both within Japan and in other countries?

Think about the question posed at the beginning of this VBQ. How was this turning point and change perceived at the time it occurred both within Japan and in other countries? Look at your analysis of each of the visual texts from the Russo-Japanese War. Can you now organize the answers so that those with similar meanings are put together? Use the spaces below to organize and identify your documents. Place the numbers of similar documents together here. Don’t leave any documents out; every document should fit together with at least one other. (Note: You do not have to use all five groups.) Group 1 Document Numbers ______, ______, ______, ______ Group 2 Document Numbers ______, ______, ______, ______ Group 3 Document Numbers ______, ______, ______, ______ Group 4 Document Numbers ______, ______, ______, ______ Group 5 Document Numbers ______, ______, ______, ______ Part Two: Organization Part Three: Synthesis:  Synthesis is putting ideas together. What is the main idea that holds each of your groups together? You had an idea when you grouped those visual texts together and now you need to articulate that idea. In your own words write the main idea here. All of the postcards in Group 1 show that: All of the postcards in Group 2 show that: All of the postcards in Group 3 show that: All of the postcards in Group 4 show that: All of the postcards in Group 5 show that: Part Three: Synthesis Part Four: Logical Ordering:  Examine your main ideas. Do any of them overlap or fit together in some way? You are looking for items in common that make sense in a logical way. Do some main ideas address similar elements or similar points? Group those main ideas consecutively so you are not jumping from main idea to main idea. Remember the question: Question: How was this turning point and change perceived at the time it was occurring both within Japan and in other countries? In answering this question: This main idea should go first: This main idea should go next: This main idea should go next: This main ideas should go next: This main idea should go last: Part Four: Logical Ordering Part Five: Generalizations:  How to make a generalization and form a thesis statement Read the following statements: Statement 1: Many people use the Internet to shop. Statement 2: Many students communicate through instant messaging. Statement 3: People are able to complete distant education courses over the Internet. Statement 4: More people are subscribing to newspapers online. Statement 5: College students often use online reference services rather than hard copy books. Now think about what one general statement you can make that is true for each of these specific points. Examples of possible answers: The Internet has many uses. The Internet has changed the way people conduct their daily business. The Internet has many positive effects. Final thesis statement Make a further generalization from the very specific statements in part four that will answer the VBQ question: How was this turning point and change perceived at the time it occurred both within Japan and in other countries? Look at your main ideas in part four. Ask yourself: what one general idea does each of these specific ideas support? Write your generalization here: This is your thesis statement for your VBQ essay. Part Five: Generalizations Part Six: Generating an Outline:  You already have the parts of the outline you need for your essay. Your thesis statement is the generalization you made in part five. To support your thesis statement, simply use your main ideas from part four as your topic sentences and you are ready to write a well thought out, well supported essay. Part Six: Generating an Outline Part Seven: Writing the Essay:  Beginning with the Sino-Japanese War in 1984-95 and the Russo-Japanese War in 1904-05, the place of Japan in the world changed. Using the documents from part one, answer the following: How was this turning point and change perceived at the time it was occurring both within Japan and in other countries? Part Seven: Writing the Essay
