9 skits and plays Grades 6-12

These skits and plays have been used in large productions and as history classroom reader’s theatre to introduce issues and themes. Thorough background information is included with each skit/play.

Topics include William the Conqueror, clashes between England and Scotland, the Battle of Agincourt, and fortifications of the 1500s. Students even learn a pike drill with authentic commands.

Look in the Appendix for "Ideas for Teachers," a Middle Ages poster display, words and phrases from England, and medieval outdoor games.
