This download is to be used with the poetry book Good Masters! Sweet Ladies!: Voices from a Medieval Village by Laura Amy Schlitz. It is Common Core aligned.
This is a .zip collection of seven PowerPoint presentations which challenge students to analyze paintings and photographs in order to make historical inferences. These PowerPoints provide students with historical background knowledge on various occupations and daily life in Medieval Europe. I use these presentations in order to test for background knowledge and get the students excited about the poems before we read them. Students really enjoy analyzing the images and imagining what it would be like to live in Medieval Europe!
The PowerPoints included are:
Glass Blowing Background
Lord and Ladies Background
These PowerPoints can be used in conjunction with my Good Masters! Sweet Ladies! Analysis Questions which can be found here:
