Step 8


Last step before you start to write your interview.

Go to http://www.virtualginza.com/japan3.htm to find where Okinawa is.
Go to http://www.lib.utexas.edu/maps/middle_east_and_asia/okinawa_pol90.jpg to find where Naha is in Okinawa.
Locate Okinawa on the classroom globe, so you can get Miyagi Sensei to show the class where he and Karate came from.


Step 9


Well done. You have successfully researched Miyagi Chojun and some aspects of Karate. You are now ready to write your interview.

Check your Task.

  • You must write at least 10 questions to ask Miyagi Sensei, your great-grandfather, so that you complete your task.
  • One group member will be Miyagi Sensei, and the rest of the group must ask the questions. Make it interesting and fun. Who is each of you? Be a character! Let one of you be Michael Miyagi, perhaps one of you could be Sensei’s wife (who had 10 children!)…what did his wife feel about Karate?
    Who else could you be?
    How will Sensei walk and talk? Is he old? Try and build his character. Look at the first point in the Evaluation rubric.
