We spent a good chunk of the week gaining some background knowledge of the Middle Ages. We did this while practicing our summarizing skills. These skills will be put to good use as we begin a research assignment next week. Students will be researching and writing about either the lives of serfs and peasants or the lives of the lords and ladies of the Middle Ages.
We will be assessing reading comprehension skills as well as summarizing skills next Tuesday. Students received the reading that will go along with the quiz in class today. The article should be read and annotated by by Tuesday in preparation.
Have a wonderful weekend!
