* Middle Ages  Level two is a comprehensive course that is appropriate for both middle school and high school students with little modification. For high school students we recommend adding daily lesson summaries and one oral report of the student?s choosing. We also recommend reading unabridged, original versions of the classic literature such as  Beowulf, Shakespeare, and  The Canterbury Tales.

From fall of Rome to the Renaissance, Middle Ages level two  is a complete one-year curriculum guide that combines  history with literature, world geography, and writing activities.  Students  study events from the middle ages including monasticism; the Vikings; knighthood; the Crusades; the Dark Ages, feudalism; early America; African and Asian dynasties; and the Renaissance. This comprehensive course covers success and failures of civilizations in the Middle Ages from all parts of the world such as Normans, Byzantines, Mongols, Aztecs, Hapsburgs, Tudors, and many others.

Middle Ages  level two  is a student guide that provides step by step lessons to teach world history from 500  to 1600. Level 2 History Odyssey guides are written to be used independently by students with the parent/teacher assisting when necessary with lessons and assessing  the student’s  completed work. Middle Ages  level two does not require an answer key  due to the subjectivity of the assignments that encourage critical thinking (i.e. there  is rarely any one correct answer).  Answer keys to map work are found in the main spine (The  Kingfisher History Encyclopedia).

Literature and writing  instructions and assignments found in the course  include three-level outlining of history readings, How to Write a Biography, creating plot diagrams, creating character webs, and identifying elements of an epic.

Critical thinking with history studies found in this course  include identifying connections and cause/effect relationships, timeline analysis, and identifying connections between geography and history through map work.
