Location: Mission Viejo Valley YMCA
This class serves as an overview of the Middle Ages. We begin the study of the Early Middle Ages with the fall of Rome and the invasion of the barbarian tribes. We then touch on main events including the Crusades, the Black Death, the Magna Carta, and the One Hundred Year War. In class students practice the art of note-taking during short lectures, participate in small and large group activities, and discuss assigned reading, and much more. Each week we shall focus on piecing together this complicated history puzzle.
Homework: maximum of one hour per week
