Quote of the Day:  “One life is all we have and we live it as we believe in living it. But to sacrifice what you are and to live without belief, that is a fate more terrible than dying.” - Joan of Arc

Learning Targets:
*Understand that the Growth of Cities and population grew after the Crusades ended feudalism.
*There were plenty of positives during the time period - more food, stable growth of population, and towns grew.  But, the Bubonic Plague or Black Death was a result of this incredible growth of cities without proper sanitation.
*The Hundreds' Year War developed after the Black Death.  It is the first war between "States" or countries France and England.  France wins the war after being inspired by Joan of Arc.  The development of the cross bow is a major advance in weapondry and kills thousands.

Hello Mr. Duez, I have been following your blog regularly for quite sometime and i would say you are doing a fantastic job of educating your students through the use of Web 2.0 technology. I am a sophomore history major @ Okhlahoma State University and have asked my history teacher back at my school to do the same. Also, i came across these excellent history flashcards. Its also a great initiative by the FunnelBrain team. Amazing!!!

Thank you Vincent. Very kind of you to comment.

Every year I just try to do a few new things and push things further. Hopefully this helps our students learn.

If I can be of any help to yourself or your history teacher, please let me know. I'll check out the flashcard site. Thanks.
