Product Description
Buy all four High Middle Ages presentations and save. These dynamic presentations on the High Middle Ages provide visuals, video links, guided notes, and reflection questions to keep your students engaged for the entire lesson.

Lesson 1: The Feudal System
For over a millennium in Europe society was based on a complex - and at times contradictory - set of relationships between lords and vassals that was know as feudalism. Stretching from the fall of the Western Roman Empire to the Modern Age, life was dictated by your social status.

Topics covered in this presentation include:
♦ Barbarian invasions and fall of the Roman Empire
♦ The Legacy of the Franks on feudalism
♦ Warlords and Mercenaries
♦ Kings and Lords
♦ The Role of the Knight Class
♦ Code of Chivalry
♦ Serfs and Peasants
♦ The Role of the Church

Lesson 2: The Church in the Middle Ages
During the High Middle Ages the Church was the most powerful institution in Europe. It influenced every aspect of every individual's life regardless of class. Kings and kingdoms who crossed the Church found themselves greatly weakened.

Topics covered in this presentation include:
♦ The Church as a unifying force in Europe
♦ Clovis and Charlemagne
♦ Excommunication
♦ The Sacraments
♦ Hierarchy of the Church
♦ Donation of Constantine
♦ East West Schism
♦ Investiture Controversy
♦ Monasticism and Rule of St. Benedict

Lesson 3: The Normans
These descendants of Vikings would settle into Northern France and assimilate into European culture. They would not remain peaceful and set out from their new home to conquer and influence other parts of the Western World. From England to Sicily and on Crusade these knights would leave their mark on Europe.

This presentation examines the following topics:
♦ Viking settlers
♦ Founding of Normandy
♦ William the Conqueror
♦ Battle of Hastings
♦ Normans in Sicily
♦ Richard the Lionheart
♦ The End of the Normans

Lesson 4: The Crusades
The Crusades were a defining event for Europe, less so for the Islamic World, but their significance would increase in time as a symbol of the struggle between two different religious worlds.

Topics covered include:
♦ The mythologizing and romanticizing of the Crusades
♦ Reasons for the Crusades
♦ The launching of the First Crusade
♦ The Second and Third Crusade
♦ Struggles between Richard and Saladin
♦ The debacle of the Fourth Crusade
♦ The economic, political, and social impact of the Crusades

There are handouts for note taking along with reflection questions included with every presentation.
