Product Description
In this lesson, students will work in groups to analyze the social, economic, political, and religious changes that took place in Western European society after the Bubonic Plague subsided in 1348, by creating and acting in short plays that demonstrate their mastery of the subject. They will also create an in-class assessment of their peers to make sure they mastered the topic as well.

Students will take on different roles that play on their strengths, from script writing, to acting, to costume designing.

Readings for the social, political, economic, and religious changes have been included. You can swap out my secondary sources for primary sources to challenge your students, and to include more CCSS in the lesson.

Materials include chart paper and Internet access for costume design, as well as chart paper for groups to write their assessment questions on. However, if you have a Smart board or other way to present questions to the class digitally you can collect their questions before hand and type them up to display to the class after each performance.

I found that it took groups about 90 minutes to adequately prepare their scenes, and another 30-45 to act them out and have the class answer their assessment questions.

The activity also comes with a self-assessment rubric to make sure students are accountable for their contributions.
