Agenda: Friday, November 12, 2010

**Note - because of Mr. Duez's absence yesterday, 6th period will be doing Wed/Thu Activities which include learning more about the castle project.**

Quote of the Day:  "Adversity has ever been considered the state in which a man most easily becomes acquainted with himself." - Samuel Johnson
"Where there is a will, there's a way."  (or a guy named Will)

Learning Targets:
*  Explain how Magyars, Muslims, and Viking invaders led to the creation of castles.
*  How did feudalism develop?  And what ways did royalty use it to control their people?

1.  Dark Ages Video.  We'll watch the 2nd half (starts with Chapter 5 of the video) with lots of commentary and discussion from Mr. Duez.  This video does an incredible job of painting a picture of what was occurring in the very early middle ages.  Students will answer questions that go with the video.
2.  We'll discuss the rubric for the Castle Project and be sure that everyone understands what is expected.
