Learning about life in Medieval Times
Twirling into the middle ages
Imagining a traditional spring festival
Courtly moments in the Middle School gym
"This was great!"
This is a favorite program in John Jay Middle School's sixth grade.
In Social Studies, students draw on their knowledge of ancient civilizations, and learn about the influences of Greek and Roman culture on feudal Europe.
In English language arts class, the students read the monologues from "Good Masters! Sweet Ladies!: Voices from a Medieval Village" by Laura Amy Schlitz.
Workshops on art, music, culture, etiquette and dance bring the learning alive for the students. "This was great!" said one student after a round of dancing.
