Medieval History High School Teacher Guide
Although many people have been taught that the period from 400 to 1522 A.D. was marked by darkness, ignorance, and struggle, this guide will show you that the opposite is true! Links to websites, hands-on activities, discussion questions, mapping activities and much more will bring the Middle Ages to life. Hands-on activities add depth to the history while vocabulary lists, comprehension questions, research topics, and website links make this both an academically strong study and one that will engage your entire family in stimulating discussions. Our teacher guide provides the structure you want and the flexibility you need to successfully teach this complex time period. In the accompanying homeschooling curriculum, 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 voyage to North America changed the world forever. By reading some of the best literature on the subject, homeschooling students will be encouraged to discuss new ideas and social changes.
