This comprehensive, five lesson plan multidisciplinary unit incorporates all different aspects of language arts. The unit is based on the Newbery Award winning book Good Masters! Sweet Ladies! Voices from a Medieval Village by Laura Amy Schlitz. Students will be introduced to the historical and literary context of the time period. Through the use of historical and dramatic texts, the students will be asked in their Language Arts, Social Studies, Art and Technology classes to create their own character, monologue and gift to be presented at the Medieval Festival of New Years.
