This is a project requiring students to create a power point about a specific topic from the Middle Ages. Students are required to pick from a list of topics to focus their power point on and then must address specific questions that are provided for their topic. The minimum guidelines are for a total of 12 slides (including a title and works cited slide) which include bullets of information and images on each one. A sample topic choice would be the Crusades and the minimum questions that students would have to address include who fought in them, why was it started, why did people join, and why/how was the church involved.
The creation of the power points usually takes two full class periods (based on one-hour classes) and presenting them would additional time. The full list of topics (which could be added to) include things such as:
-Feudalism and Manorialism
-Monarchs and Nobles
-Dominance of the Roman Catholic Church
-The Black Death
-The Magna Carta/Parliament
-The Hundred Years War
