This presentation can be used to wrap up the Middle Ages, speed through the Middle Ages or review the Middle Ages. I used it to kick off WH2 this year and jog their memory about in regards to key aspects of the Middle Ages that will heavily influence the Renaissance, Exploration, and the Reformation. It is arranged in timeline format and also includes some elements of cultures outside of Europe (example: comparison of European and Japanese feudalism). Includes a video link to "Mankind: The Story of Us" clip on the Fall of Constantinople. Ends with a brief summary prompt for students to synthesize their notes.
