History---Modern World History

Write a short paragraph that traces the rise of Japan from an isolated society to a major industrial and imperial power.

I'm good at writing paragraphs but I really don't understand the question! If someone could explain to me what my teacher wants and how I should go about writing this paragraph, that would be great!

Also I have a few questions:
How do you 'trace the rise of Japan'?

I think what the teacher wants is for me to write a paragraph using the major historical points and what Japan has been through in order to become an industrial/imperial power(such as changing and modernizing/sending a person to learn the ways of the west, winning the war and taking over other territories ect)...am I correct?

  2. Thank you so much!!! I really don't understand my teacher very well. She tries to explain but it makes no sense. I wrote a 7 paragraph essay on a total different subject one time, I ended up having to write it all over again.. Completely differently. Thanks again for your help.
