Product Description
This 45-60 minute lesson plan is appropriate for teachers or to use as emergency sub plans.

Everything is included for this lesson (readings, instructions, rubric).

Students will be required to read and analyze each document. They will show their understanding by answering a series of questions related to the documents that they read.

Historical Context: When Rome fell there were several changes made throughout Europe. Rome was an extremely powerful empire that provided stabilization of government, education, and culture. Europe was beginning to fall into the rule of barbarians whom spread barbarianism. This would last for the next 500 years, which is why historians have labelled this period as the Dark Ages of Europe. The Middle Ages or what many historians recognize as the Medieval Time in Europe lasted from 500 AD to 1500 AD. If these dates sound familiar that’s because it took place during the “Dark Ages”. Many historians used the terms Medieval Times and even the Dark Ages to describe the first half of the Middle Ages.

Students will read three documents that will help build their background knowledge about Dark Ages/Middle Ages. They will then use your critical thinking skills to answer various open-ended questions that will require them to apply information from these documents to support their answer responses to each question.

At the end of the lesson, the students are expected to explain and answer the following questions:

• Discuss what the Dark Ages and Middle ages were.
• Describe how the Dark ages and Middles are alike/different.
• Explain what the Black Plague was and what affect it had on society.
• Discuss specifically how society changed due to the feudalism. Explain how life changed from the Dark Ages to the Middle Ages to life now. Apply information from the documents to support your answers. Discuss how things began to change for the good.
