PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This 10 page packet/lesson teaches students about the economic, social, and political impact of the Commercial Revolution on Europe in the Middle Ages. The lesson uses primary and secondary source readings and analysis, as well as chart, image, and map analysis. A thorough teacher answer key is included.

The lesson begins by having students complete a "Do Now" question that sets up the lesson. Then, students connect the lesson to previous knowledge about the fall of Rome and the conditions of the early Middle Ages by examining a demographic chart.

Students then learn about the growth of towns and cities in Europe and their living conditions by analyzing and comparing multiple primary source excerpts. They read a secondary source and examine an image to learn about city charters, the emancipation of serfs, the growth of the middle class, and the significance of bills of exchange.

They proceed by reading a primary source excerpt of medieval guild regulations to learn the roles of guilds in protecting their members, keeping social order, maintaining the quality of goods, and preventing economic competition. Students learn about the growth of anti-Semitism in the Middle Ages and Jews' exclusion from the guilds.

Students then use a map of medieval trade routes and trade fairs to draw conclusions about the growth of trade, location of trade centers, role of trade fairs, and significance of the powerful Hanseatic League.

The packet finishes with a summative writing activity allowing students to wrap up their discoveries about the overall impact of the Commercial Revolution in medieval Europe.

This lesson covers all the key points students must know about this subject for state assessments, and is completely Common Core aligned.
