about her new Medieval guide ... "This period in history is so exciting
and it is my hope that this full-color guide will open up new worlds to
you and your students! The suggested grade levels are 5th - 8th grade
and the guide is structured to allow for you to personalize it to each
student. It is formatted in 35 weekly lessons with reading assignments,
mapping activities, research and discussion topics, hands-on and craft
suggestions, vocabulary lists and much more. Knowing that each student
is different, I have tried to set it up to allow you to personalize the
study to your student's unique needs. For example, a 5th or 6th grader
would be able to use the research topics to discuss new ideas and
historical events while an 8th grader would be encouraged to write short
research essays. For students who are more tactile learners, there's
hand-on activities to encourage the development of those skills. One
thing that I try to emphasize in the guide is the fact that it is a
guide and it's supposed to make your job easier, not harder! It's chock
full of ideas and activities but they're not all required. The focus
should be the literature, not checking off every single activity. The
activities are there to enrich your study, so pick and choose according
to the educational needs and interests of your students. Have fun with
The term Middle
Ages probably conjures up images of brave knights and fair ladies,
feasts and tournaments, castles and cathedrals. These are the elements
of this time period that captures our imagination. In this course
students will learn about King Richard, King Arthur, Saladin, Queen
Eleanor, Joan of Arc, Shahrazad and 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.
The middle Ages was a very busy time full of change. Brilliant minds
lived between the years 400 and 1522, the years that are covered in this
study. By reading some of the best literature on the subject, students
will be encouraged to discuss new ideas and social changes. Links to
websites, hands-on activities, discussion questions, mapping activities
and much more will bring the Middle Ages to life. Set up in 35 weekly
lessons, this study guide provides everything you need to complete an
exciting literature based history course.
