K.I.S.S. (Keep It Social Studies) wants to provide you with basic tools to introduce students to various social studies topics. This viewing guide is designed to touch on essential terminology dealing with The Dark Ages. This fill-in activity follows John Green's Crash Course World History: Episode 14 in order and the sentences are word-for-word. There are two copies on one printout so it is economical, but you will have to cut.
Crash Course World History: Episode 14- John Green teaches you about the so-called Dark Ages, which it turns out weren't as uniformly dark as you may have been led to believe. While Europe was indeed having some issues, many other parts of the world were thriving and relatively enlightened. John covers European Feudalism, the cultural blossoming of the Islamic world, and the scientific and artistic advances in China, all during these "Dark Ages." Along the way, John will raise questions about the validity of Europe's status as a continent, reveal the best and worst years of his life, and frankly state that science and religion were once able to coexist.
