We continued to discuss Ancient Africa today.  We finished up our power point from Thursday and then took a look at 3 different African perspectives.  Once we finished this we took some time to read a few pages from the book and answer the questions.

Starting the Renaissance

April 17, 2012 by · No Comments · Uncategorized

After taking our test on the Middle Ages yesterday, we are beginning our unit on the Renaissance today. We will be transitioning from the Middle Ages into the Renaissance by recapping the events that shaped the Middle Ages, and introducing the changes that the Renaissance brought about. At the end of class today, students will give an insight on Machiavelli’s “The Prince”, and whether they think a leader is more efficient when they are loved or feared. Starting with the Scientific Revolution tomorrow, we will begin to dive into the changes that the Renaissance presented, with students illustrating a timeline with important people and events from the Scientific Revolution.

Finishing ARMT/Review

April 13, 2012 by · No Comments · Uncategorized

Today we are in the final day of our ARMT testing. However, we have been reviewing all week for our upcoming test Monday. Students have gotten two review sheets spanning everything we have covered over our Middle Ages Unit, and have been working on these reviews over the last three days. By the time the test rolls around Monday, there should be no “surprises”!

Middle Ages Test, Monday 4/16

Education and Arts in the Middle Ages

April 9, 2012 by · No Comments · Uncategorized

Today we will be covering education and arts in the “High Middle Ages”, so named because it was one of the few prosperous times during the Middle Ages. We will be discussing how literacy and art became priotities at this time, and the effects that it would have on society. At the end of class, students will be answering questions about the Canterbury Tales, and drawing their interpretation of what Chaucer said everyday life was like.

ARMT Testing starts tomorrow, 4/10!
