Medieval History w/ Literature

Advisor: April Thome

April Thome, middle school  

Students in this class will study the Middle Ages, Byzantine Empire, the Renaissance and the Age of Discovery.  The historical studies will be enriched with literature selections about these periods of development. In addition, students will have an opportunity to develop a historical project such as a research paper, an exhibit, a documentary, a webpage or a dramatic performance that features aspects of this historical timeframe.  During the second semester, students who choose will be coached in preparing a project for the regional history day competition.
