Medieval Lives Mattered: Section 3
What kinds of things mattered to people in the Middle Ages?
This is the second of two sections which help students gain a sense of their shared humanity with the people of the past – medieval people weren’t an alien life-form. This section explores similarities and differences in what mattered to people in the Middle Ages – ideas such family, loyalty, religion, respect.
The classroom resource contains text and activities for students to read and work on. In addition there’s an integrated activity based on a class-set of 28 role cards, enabling each student in your class to take a role from king to beggar and learn what mattered to each of them and what the similarities and differences were across society.
