A LOOK AT WHAT WE’RE
learning

Western Civ Class

This past fall, our Western Civilization class covered human developments from the earliest settlements, through the Greeks and Romans, and then we ended the semester with the medieval period. The medieval period (or the middle ages) is a long period that historians consider roughly between the 5th century and the 15th century (it's huge!). We got to around the 1300s by the time our semester ended and in order to gain insight into the "late medieval" period, we planned a medieval feast during which students were assigned historical roles of real people who lived from roughly 1000-1300. It was a great opportunity to focus on women at this time, since every female in our class (there are 8) was given a different woman from the time period, which can be a struggle since women are underrepresented in history, particularly the further back in time you look! We tried to do a few historically accurate things for the meal, but the main goal was to have the students understand their assigned historical figure and the connections they might have had to the other figures at the table. Aside from that, it was just a great chance to celebrate all of the hard work the students did all semester in this dual-credit college class!
