This is a group project that takes a single class period. This is the one lesson that students come back to me years later still laughing about how much fun it was. The students will be divided into small groups with a member of Medieval society assigned to them (Peasant, Pope Gregory, etc). The students will spend the first half of the class researching their assigned character.
The fun begins with the second half of the class when I pretend to be Oprah and have them "on my show" one at a time to answer a few questions.
