I am looking for picture books set in the middle ages. I'm looking mainly for biography and historical fiction, and also stories written at the time (though translated or retold in more modern language). While I in no way need all of these to be "Christian" stories, I would LOVE to find at least some good story books that dealt the faith of the characters involved (both because I'm a Christian myself, and because I know this was a time period where in large parts of the world Christianity flourished, and it seems inaccurate to only show stories where faith doesn't play a role, because I'm sure it did play a role in their daily lives). Thanks!
I've started putting together literature for the my 11 year old DS (grade 6--avid, strong reader) and my 9 year old DS (grade 4--average, reluctant reader). We will be covering the middle ages next year. While I have a very complete list of European/Western literature selections for both ages, I really prefer to have a more balanced selection--I try to avoid the 'predominately Eurocentric history/literature slant' and could use some suggestions for non-western literature (and history supplemental resources) for the middle ages. I've been searching the web but have only found a couple options. Any one have suggestions?
I have been happily adhering to the Well-trained Mind suggestions for History using a 4-year cycle of Ancient thru to Modern History. We have used all the Story of the World books and last year completed The History of the Ancient World. I purchased The History of the Medieval World to used 2016/17 (year 2 of the 4 year cycle) and I have become quite confused about how to complete the final cycle. HOTW Ancient did not cover the fall of rome which was where SOTW ended. HOTW Medieval only covers to the early 12th century. SOTW Middle Ages & Renaissance went through to the 16th Century. HOTW Renaissance only gets to 15th century in 94 chapters. How are we supposed to get through Modern History again in the 4 years? Should I even be using HOTW? Any suggestions greatly appreciated. I'm really stressed about getting through it all using these texts, but love the writing and the study guides and maps.
Does anyone have some good writing prompts for history (or literature) for middle ages through Renaissance world history? I'd really like to find things for that time period that don't require extensive reading outside a few relatively short primary source materials, or even one or two short secondary source materials, so that DS's time can be spent on analysis/thinking and writing? In case you're interested, I'll post our draft plan for next year below. Thanks!
