History 12-2/12-3 China, Lesson One

Today we opened by reading DeMarco and debriefing Ex 1 from Chapter 15.  Please ensure you read far enough to answer Ex 2-5, for homework.  I also went over the Manchuria map and we filled in some key ideas.  You should have realized that what Japan needed economically, Manchuria seemed to offer.  I also reviewed the Japan/China graphic organizer and asked you to add some key ideas to the Japan column.  Specifically, you should have noted that while Japan proved that she was a player after the Russo-Japanese War, and after she sided with the victors in the First World War, the 1921 Treaty of Washington (naval disarmament treaty) marginalized her behind the USA and the UK - ouch!

I also skimmed over the four-page summary that covers Sun Yat Sen, Chiang Kai-Shek and Mao Tse Tung.  I'm not assigning the questions, but I created it as a means to summarize the key points about each leader and so I suggest to take time to read it.  Thus, it is there to help you, not to add work.
