Students love all the activities in this bundle, especially getting to try out writing Cyrillic! This is a Common Core-aligned comprehensive lesson that examines the impact of the Byzantine Empire on Europe after the fall of Rome by analyzing differences between Roman Catholicism and Eastern Orthodoxy, and by looking at the development of Russia as a culture.
Uses visuals, graphic organizers, class discussion, partner work, independent analytical writing, and a fun small group debate activity. Works well for AP and Regents classes.
Depending on the level of your class, this lesson can be done in one day or broken up with writing assignments given as homework. The handouts are in Word format to allow you to edit them as needed.
