Crusades (1995) Starring: Terry Jones
If you know little about the Crusades of the Middle Ages or what to teach about it then this documentary set on DVD or video is an invaluable help. This is the best and most student-friendly documentary on the subject out there, four hours of magic, humor, and serious learning.
This is a study guide I created which is divided into eight sections that give focus questions and work for the DVD series. Each episode of fifty minutes is divided into two 25-minute lessons. Students watch the video/DVD and then complete the worksheets of thought-provoking questions with the teacher. The worksheets themsleves lead to excellent discussion matter.
At the end of the worksheets is a test study guide to help students prepare for a final exam on the Crusades and then the final test itself is also included. Answers are provided to the multiple-choice and true/false questions on the test. The short answer questions are open-ended and personal to each learner.
This set, along with the DVD set by Terry Jones, is the basis to begin a successful unit of study on the Crusades.
