This adaptable notecard assignment is designed to teach research-based study skills to high school students while reviewing the core concepts central to the Post-Classical Era (Medieval Europe, the rise of the Arab Empire, the Mongol Empire, the Crusades, and the Black Death). It includes a rubric for easy grading. Ideally, students will receive this assignment at the beginning of their unit, and construct their notecards as they learn about the concepts in class. Highlighted parts of the document alert you to the parts you may want to change (due dates, etc.) before handing it out to students.
