Introduction to the Middle Ages
These video worksheets are designed to be a companion for the documentary The Dark Ages produced by the History Channel. This is a very thorough video guide that includes reflection questions at the end of each section that are designed for the teacher to pause the video and discuss with their class.
This documentary can often be found on Youtube. It is currently here:
The Dark Ages
The documentary is 90 minutes long and takes me three 60 minute periods to get through as I stop to discuss each section and explain some of the questions the students are tasked with answering.
The students stay engaged with this exciting, concise, and well organized explanation of this period of history.
