While very suitable for the regular classroom, each of the Achieve! series of History titles has been written at a literacy level that makes the pages appropriate for secondary school students who, because of poor reading skills, may struggle to comprehend regular classroom materials. This title has been written for the Australian Curriculum: History.
In Medieval Europe 1 units of work provide a basis for identifying European geographical locations and the time frame for the medieval era. Feudalism, fealty and the main social classes are discussed, as well as the significant influence of Charlemagne and the Catholic Church. Literacy and historical skills are developed though interpreting appropriate texts, and locating and categorising information.
The CD-ROM contains all the pages that are featured in the book. This flexible resource with editable work sheets is highly illustrated, has a mature-look, can be photocopied and also used on Interactive Whiteboards for whole-class teaching.
