Although many people have been
taught that the period from 300 to 1522 A.D. was marked by darkness,
ignorance, and struggle, this guide will show you that the opposite is
true! Rich period literature will show you that it was a time when
people were forming ideas that still impact us today. It was also a time
of exciting discoveries, new innovations, and wonderful stories.
Reading Beowulf will open student's eyes to the terrors of living under the threat of Viking raids. The Song of Roland
provides a glimpse into the mores and ethics of a time where the
concepts of chivalry were just developing. The story of William Wallace
reveals a passionate love of liberty that we still find heroic today.
You will also accompany Marco Polo on his travels through Asia,
witnessing sights never imagined by the western mind. Songs, hymns, and
creeds will give you insight into the religious beliefs of people who
lived over 1500 years ago! In this course students will learn about King
John, King Arthur, Saladin, Queen Eleanor, Joan of Arc, Shahrazad,
Marco Polo, Peter Abelard, Geoffrey Chaucer and many others. They will
learn about Martin Luther who revealed a new way to approach God and
about John Wycliffe who organized the Bible. Students will read about
the life of Columbus, whose discovery of North America changed the world
forever. By reading some of the best literature on the subject,
students will be encouraged to discuss new ideas and social changes.
Links to websites, hand-on activities, discussions questions, mapping
activities and much more will bring the Middle Ages to life. Set up in
