I would like to share with H-World members news of the online publication of my animation “A Day in the Life of a Teenage Samurai.” This work of historical fiction was created in collaboration with TED-Ed, with animation by WOW-HOW studio, and includes a lesson plan for teachers. It was crafted in a style that is meant to be engaging to young viewers; historically truthful, but not photorealistic. Please share the animation with your colleagues and friends, secondary school teachers, and students.
