Product Description
This is one of my favorite activities my students do during our Medieval Times Unit. Traditional troubadours would sing songs throughout the empire about 1) proclaiming how amazing a noble, lord, knight, or vassal was, and 2) love and romance.

In this assignment, students are asked to write their own troubadour songs: one "brag poem," and one "love poem." Students will also have an introductory activity where they analyze two popular troubadour songs: The Song of Roland and When I See the Lark that Moves. Each of these primary sources have two short guiding questions to get the ball running.

If you'd like, you can have your students swap papers and have another student proclaim their poem to the rest of the class. Maybe you could write brag poems about some teachers and go and proclaim them around the school? ;)

***Teacher Tip: An issue I came upon when teaching the brag poems is students struggled to brag about themselves. So, I allowed students to pick another student or person (I had great responses about the Cookie Monster and Iron Man) to create their brag songs. Because many of my students are 10th graders and don't know about love, I told them to write a sappy love poem that they would see in a movie. They loved that.
