Students read a passage on Charlemagne from Medieval Europe, answer 13 questions, analyze 9 images, and complete creative tasks (touches on Charlemagne's legacy, an advertisement, and resume for a job). The answers are included where appropriate and this would be great for a sub!
Sample questions include:
--What did Charlemagne do in Western Europe that had not been accomplished since Rome fell?
--Rewrite the phrase “keep his enemies at bay” in your own words.
--Explain how Charlemagne came to power.
--Inferring from the text and any prior knowledge, what might have been one of Charlemagne’s reasons for wanting a more unified empire?
--What do you think Charlemagne would have done if he had more than one surviving son?
--What was the most significant reason at the time Charlemagne lived that he was well known and why? Would he agree with you, why or why not? Would the other Founding Fathers agree with you, why or why not?
