Do your kids enjoy writing but need a little push to dig into history? Do they enjoy just about everything except writing? Either way, this fun unit is designed to spark their interest and get them into both.
The goal of the Reporting From . . . series is to combine writing and history in a way that makes both subjects enjoyable and fresh. It starts with a “big picture” summary of people and events related to the Middle Ages that can serve as a springboard to further discovery. It also gives students a context for how the people and events of the unit are related.
Next, students get to go “on assignment” with ten newspaper reporter assignments. From reporting on the Book of Kells and the agricultural calendar to interviewing farmers and falconers, students are given artwork related to each topic and newspaper templates to create their news articles and give their paper an authentic feel.
When they are through, they’ll have ten illustrated articles related to the Middle Ages and a better understanding of the people involved.
