Western Reserve Public Media presents The Middle Ages, a multimedia package that is keyed to grade 7 social studies and language arts standards. The package includes a teacher guide and a Web site. The Web site contains video segments, the teacher guide and games and activities. The goal of the program is to help students understand the basic concepts of this historical period, including the barbarian invasions, feudalism, the Crusades, the devastation of the plague, the causes of the Renaissance and the beginning of the Reformation. This is accomplished through hands-on and project-based activities.
